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

    Discussed this book in a Book Club and group felt it an ok book. Not up to "The Choice" level, but still a book worth reading. "The Chair" brings out how Christians can be so critical, if it is a situation they have experienced. "The Chair" also brings out that confession and restitution is God's way. The group felt the non-Christian was the one person who showed the main character true love.

    With many twists and turns in this book you were continually surprised. True to the title of this book, the author brought forth the ideal that not only is confession good for the soul, but that the truth does indeed set you free! Many characters added to the drama and won your heart as well. I will pass this one on, but not before I take one last look just to see what I might have missed the first time, the plots were that good.

    Robert Whitlow is one of my go to authors and The Confession is evidence why. A legal thriller that will hold the readers interest from page one - a car wreck with a dead teen and his friend. But the story takes place ten years later as the surviving teen is beginning to build his career and (hopefully) a family.

    But as many must learn, the past can not be hidden and the truth will come out. Whether in a car wreck or at the scene of a gunshot, lives are inevitably changed. And when the truth is revealed it will Grace and Mercy to move into the next phase of life. Many years ago I heard a couple of simple definitions of Grace and Mercy:

    Grace is getting what we dont deserve.

    Mercy is not getting what we do deserve.

    Holt Douglas, a relative new assistant DA, and his new friends, Greg and Valerie Stevens, would need to learn the meaning of those words - both from God and from each other. And they do.

    I hope that the author is not done with these characters - there is still life in a community with some borderline corrupt politicians and lawmen, and a new lawyer with little allegiance to the existing power brokers in town. Life is not done for a new believer, with a new job, and a new wife - a life I would like to read more about. But even if this is the only story with these characters, the book is worth the time spent reading it over the past week. It was for me, I expect it will be for others as well.

    I have been a fan of Robert Whitlow for some time, and I found The Confession to be honest, gritty, and real. It's a story about redemption that comes about in a way that is totally unexpected. There are enough plot twists to raise the eyebrows, and some twists in the story line that give you moments of gasp. While there is a romance involved, it doesn't turn out the way you would think, with the "walking into the sunset together." Loved it.

    Robert Whitlow is a great story teller who writes from a Christian point of view. I enjoyed this book right up until the end which seemed a little abrupt. The characters were well-written and likeable. The moral is obviously about confession. It involves a childhood transgression and how the lack of confession effected his life. This is definitely a book worth reading.
