Product Description

Erin Larson is running out of options. In the wake of her father's death, she found a slim piece of paper--a deposit slip--with an unbelievable amount on it. Ten million dollars. Only the bank claims it has no record of the deposit and stonewalls her attempts to find out more. This lawsuit, her last chance, has brought only intimidation and threats. Now she needs to convince Jared to take a risk, to help her because the money is real. And both need to watch their backs as digging deeper unleashes something far more dangerous than just threats.

This Gripping Legal Thriller Is a Perfect Summer Read

When Jared Neaton grew tired of the shady ethics of his big law firm and left to go out on his own, he never expected the wheels to fly off so quickly. One big case collapsing on him has pushed him to the brink and it's all he can do to scrape by. He can't risk another bad loss.

Publishers Weekly

Debut novelist Johnson, like fellow Christian novelists James Scott Bell and Randy Singer, has worked many years as a trial lawyer, a profession that seems to serve budding novelists well, perhaps not because they are accustomed to framing and structuring narratives of event but because they have seen much of the underbelly of society. When Erin Larson finds a deposit slip for $10 million in her recently deceased father’s safety deposit box, she hires Jared Neaton to help her find out where the money came from and why she never saw any signs of it. To take the case, Neaton must return to his hometown and face his father, who did time in prison for embezzlement. Johnson writes vividly; describing Neaton’s fathers eyes, he writes, “They showed no fight; only a rush of unexpected pain. It drained all the satisfaction out of the rage, seeing his dad like a fighter who wouldn’t raise his gloves.” With an irresistible set-up, suspense, a subtle love triangle, strong dialogue, characters, and a focused plot, Johnson makes a strong first literary case.

    This is an excellent debut novel! The plot has numerous twists and turns and a very unexpected ending; and the characters are interesting and unique.

    The storyline revolves around the continual desire of man to succeed and his frequent propensity to do whatever it takes to achieve what he considers success. The main character is conflicted with past parental failings and his own desires as he tries unsuccessfully to distance himself from the repetition of negative, harmful actions which he sees mirrored at times in his own personality.

    My only concern with the book and one that I would hope the author would address in an anticipated sequel would be that there was not enough Christian witness--God's hand is barely hinted at and the only main character's Christian experience is not presented very positively.

    Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would certainly recommend it to others who like a good mystery
