Publisher's Description

"Fans of John Grisham will find much to like here." —Library Journal

Confession is good for the soul, but it could mean death to an ambitious young lawyer.

Assistant DA Holt Douglas has made a career of getting confessions from criminals. With a confession in hand, he knows a guilty plea is soon to follow.

In the midst of professional success, Holt is haunted by a secret—a lie he buried in the grave of his best friend. Holt’s crime is hidden from all eyes—family, friends, police, and his soon-to-be fiancé.

But the truth has a way of coming back to life.

With obsessive prosecutorial zeal, Holt reopens a cold case involving the death of the town’s wealthiest citizen. The man’s death was ruled a suicide, but Holt suspects murder. Facing fierce opposition, he is determined to expose the killer. Holt slowly begins to unravel the facts.

And comes face-to-face with his own guilty conscience.

With his job, his relationship with the woman he loves, and his future at risk, Holt skirts the boundary between truth and lies, confession

and hypocrisy, redemption and ruin. Can he survive long enough to finally make the right choice?

“Readers will find plenty to love about this suspenseful novel as they watch its appealing main character juggle personal, professional, and spiritual crisis with a combination of vulnerability and strength.” —CBA Retailers and Resources, regarding The Living Room

    This review was written for The Confession.
    Upon opening the book I read this quote, Confession is a bridge everyone must cross. This book is dedicated to the guides of grace who help us in the journey. How profound! When I read it, I thought how truthful it is, and it piqued my interest. The thrust of the story brings home to our hearts the need to both receive and to give forgiveness to others. The author shows through the storys characters how difficult it is to confess our sins when we would rather hide them and the challenges we face when extending forgiveness.

    Holton is a district attorney who carries a secret from his youth. His lifes work has been to honor his friend who died; yet, it is more than that. When Holt was 18, he was driving and lost control of the car and his friend nicknamed Calico was killed. What turns out to be difficult for Holt was laying the blame for the accident on his friend when in fact he was the driver. Trish works for the sheriffs office. While her duties are manifold, she is trying to come to grips with forgiving the drunk driver who killed her father and put her mother in a wheelchair. The character that I found captivating was Bishop Pennington, who is an example of a man available for prayer or just listening to those who need to share their burdens, keeping confidences.

    When Holt is accidently given a cold case file of an apparent suicide of a prominent citizen, he begins to dig for the information not in the file. Though he is told to immediately quit investigating, he is drawn into the case which unfolds into more than what he thought was an apparent cover up. On top of all this, Holt begins his journey toward God while others learn the freedom forgiveness brings to them. I highly recommend the novel. It speaks spiritual truth along with a suspense-building climax and an ending that will steal your breath away.

    As I was reading, I kept seeing how various characters struggled with letting go of anger or facing their sins due to the shame that overwhelmed them. But what hope and joy the characters reflected once the truth was all out and there was no more hiding or fear of the truth being known by others. The tale reflects, I believe, how we all at times fear confession, how we do feel shame, but if we confess, how free we become! A very enlightening and captivating story awaits those who open the book and take the journey. I did and it was well worth reading!

    I admit, my favorite books are not legal suspense novels, but I absolutely love Robert Whitlow! I have high expectations for his books, and The Confession is one of his best. It deals with the personal struggles of ethics and is all about forgiveness. The characters are very relatable and the story is extremely good. I loved that he took his two characters, Holt Douglas and Trish Carmichael, in a different direction than the norm. You kind of see what you think is coming, and nope, it's not. Keep 'em coming, Robert Whitlow!

    The Confession by Robert Whitlow is a suspenseful legal thriller that deals with ethics and if it is okay to sometimes hide the truth. As Holt tries to uncover the details of a crime that he believes was covered up, and sorts through who is being truthful...or not, he begins to feel convicted about a cover-up in his own past. Is lying ever justified? There are twists and turns throughout the book, and some romance. He has a steady girlfriend, Angelina, but the deputy sheriff he works with, Trish Carmichael, has a huge crush on him. As they work closer together, and find so much common ground, will he and Trish fall in love...or do their past experiences put too great a wedge between them?

    I am a huge fan of Robert Whitlow's books, and I loved this one too. It kept me guessing and made me think deeper into the issues brought to light. The characters develop into people who grow to care about as you read, and the plot kept my interest. The Confession is another winner!

    I love anything Robert Whitlow writes. I enjoy the combination of romance, mystery and suspense. I love to read books where the author changes the scene, but you don't really mind, because each scene is equally interesting. Good job! I was guessing clear to the end - had some things figured out, I thought, but was also surprised.

    The Confession, by Robert Whitlow, is an inspiring novel. Having read several of Whitlows other books, I held high expectations for this one and was certainly not disappointed. It shows how deception, even when no one knows but God, can endanger our lives as we know them.

    Holt Douglas, the Assistant DA, dating a beautiful woman, even having the perfect dog, appears to have the ideal life. The secrets hidden in his past, however, begin to arise during his unofficial investigation into a cold case. Officer Trish Carmichael wants to help him and holds a big crush on the man, in spite of the attention she receives from another man at her church, until she learns of his secret. Holt must decide whether or not to come forward with his secret and confess, and Trish must learn how to let go of the bitterness in her heart and truly forgive.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was well-written. The characters were well-developed, seeming as if they could truly be real people. The story held my attention to the end, even though I guessed many of the events before then. I especially liked Holts dog and Bishop Pennington.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great Christian suspense novel.

    Kara
