Description

A lawyer ready to die takes one final case...the trial of his life.

Attorney Kent "Mac" MacClain has nothing left to live for. Nine years after the horrific accident that claimed the life of his wife and two sons, he's finally given up. His empty house is a mirror for his empty soul, it seems suicide is his only escape. And then the phone rings.

Angela Hightower, the beautiful heiress and daughter of the most powerful man in Dennison Springs, has been found dead at the bottom of a ravine. The accused killer, Peter Thomason, needs a lawyer. But Mac has come up against the Hightowers and their ruthless, high-powered lawyers before -- an encounter that left his practice and reputation reeling.

The evidence pointing to Thomason's guilt seems insurmountable. Is Mac defending an ingenious psychopath, or has Thomason been framed--possibly by a member of the victim's family? It comes down to one last trial. For Thomason, the opponent is the electric chair. For Mac, it is his own tormented past--a foe that will prove every bit as deadly.

    I was so disappointed in this book. I was thinking I was going to get a Grisham-like book, and instead I got some cheesy become a Christian, pray and all things will right themselves. It was billed to me as a legal thriller book - legal, yes; thriller - umm, no. Unless hiking through woods, everyone turning their lives around, finding true love, and everything wrapped up all nice and lovely counts as a thriller. Okay, so there was one semi-scary part in the book, but alas, I am scratching my head at the thriller part.Now, sometimes I want easy, happily-ever-after the book ends with everything being wonderful - but that is not what I thought this book was. I was so disappointed.And might I also add that Whitlow makes a huge mistake that I think so many Christian authors do - the book is predictable, the message is the same old, and gaining faith (or a deeper sense of faith) somehow makes everything so wonderful and perfect - including in this book a person with a mental issue being prayed over and suddenly the mental issue goes away. I'm sorry, but real life doesn't work that way and I think that mindset sets up too many people for failure - if I had more faith, I wouldn't be depressed. If God loved me I would struggle with anxiety. Suicidal thoughts would lead my mind if only I prayed more. No. It doesn't work that way. Bi-polar can't be prayed away. Becoming a Christian - or getting a deeper faith - does not mean all wounds will heal, true love will appear and all wrongs in your life will be righted. It's naive at best to portray faith in these terms.I wouldn't recommend this book. I doubt I will pick up any Whitlow books in the future. And as soon as I read this book, I promptly got rid of it.
