Publisher's Description

Murder, betrayal, and a trial that feeds a media frenzy. Can one woman stand against the forces that threaten to tear her family apart? Pastor Ron Hamilton’s star is rising. His 8,000-strong church is thriving. His good looks and charisma make him an exceptional speaker on family values. And his book on pornography in the church has become an unexpected bestseller. Everything is perfect. Until a young woman’s body is discovered in a seedy motel room. The woman is a porn star. And all the evidence in the murder points to one man: Ron. With the noose tightening around her husband’s neck, Dallas Hamilton faces a choice: believe the seemingly irrefutable facts—or the voice of her heart. The press has already reached its verdict, and the public echoes it. But Dallas is determined to do whatever it takes to find the truth. And then a dark secret from Dallas's past threatens to take them all down. As the clock ticks toward Ron's conviction and imprisonment, and an underworld of evil encircles her, Dallas must gather all her trust in God to discover what really happened in that motel room . . . even if it means losing faith in her husband forever.

    This review was written for Presumed Guilty.
    I really enjoyed this book. Bell continues to amaze me with his story-telling ability. In this book, he handles the very sensitive issues of pornography and adultery. These are very touchy subjects. But, he handles them tactfully and thoroughly, giving information without being graphic. Both are presented as sins: a nice refresher from most modern legal thrillers. I have given it 4 1/2 stars because it is sometimes a little graphic in its descriptions of sexual orientation. Most of all, I am so glad that he allows the husband to come to repentance, and he allows Dallas to forgive her husband. This is refreshing and good example of Christian love and forgiveness. Thank you, Mr. Bell, for another wonderful book.

    Presumed Guilty is another low point in Bell's work. Perfectly predictable the doormat wife accepts her cheating husband back; under the disguise of "grace". I realize Christian marriages are falling by the adultery wayside equal to their sexual counterparts. Perhaps because pastors, like the one in Presumed Guilty, are getting away with their sexual sins! Why is this dribble marketed as Christian writing?

    I've just discovered James Scott Bell and I am fascinated by his writing. PRESUMED GUILTY kept me engaged and trying to guess the next twist and turn. In the story, he interjects truths about which we all need to think.

    Bell has crafted yet another relevant page-turner in Presumed Guilty. Pornography is a sensitive subject for many, but Jim tackles the issue with grace. He's not afraid to touch on the porn industry's underbelly, but he never stoops into gratuitous territory.A bold blend of legal thriller and socially pertinent fiction, Presumed Guilty will keep you flipping leaves well past your bedtime.

    James Scott Bell doesn't disappoint, but that should be expected from the author of the definitive book on plot and structure. The writing is tight, the characters well-drawn, and there are enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end.
