Publisher's Description

The author of Gun Lake and The Second Thief is back with a riveting tale of how buried mistakes can resurface at any time. Adventure Company entrepreneur Jake Rivers gets a call from the parents of a woman who has disappeared and was last seen with Alec, Jake's best friend from college. The girl's parents believe she is hiding out with Alec, but Jake hasn't heard from him in ten years. Jake's moved on from his college days, but the memories of what he's tried to forget--a friend's suicide, an enemy's mysterious disappearance--keep resurfacing. Someone wants to keep him from discovering what really happened.

    Jake Rivers thought the past was exactly that - in the past. As a business owner of an adventure company with many successful mountain climbs behind him, he's rather not think of the days of his youth. But the questions of the past arise to taunt him when a mysterious man wants him to find the one man from college, Alex, who can answer all of the questions surrounding those dark days. Will the mistakes made by a younger version of himself come back to haunt him? And why is there so many blanks in his mind from his squandered college days? Is it ever too late to learn the truth?

    In true Thrasher style, "Admission" held my attention from the very first page. I will admit, the writing style had me wanting to flip to the next chapter, and it took all I had in me not to read ahead. But the truth is slowly unraveled into the final admission, and Jake learns that while things do not stay in the past, neither can you just tuck them away in your mind. To every action there is a consequence and the price was ultimately too high to pay. A novel for anyone who's ever done anything they have come to regret.

    I didn't appreciate the constant discussion of sex, drugs, pot, etc. in this book. I would rather not see this book on a Christian bookstore site. Not only did I find it inappropriate, but it was also very slow-moving and dull. I really had to fight my way through this one.

    You won't be able to set it down. It's suspense filled and an easy read...certainly for 2$ you can't get much better!

    I have read 70 pages of this book and it is NOT a fun read. As other reviews have stated, every chapter jumps back and forth 10 yrs and it can get very confusing. I have read other books by Thrasher that I really enjoyed, but not this one.

    This book was a little hard for me to follow as every other chapter was either in the present or 10 years earlier. The spiritual message is very subtle
