Publisher's Description

“I didn’t have a choice. I didn’t.” That’s what Allie Whitman tells herself every night as she lies awake. Sometimes she even believes it. But mostly she knows deep down that her inability to make a hard choice has put millions of lives at risk, including her own. Now the only one who can help her is her lawyer, Connor Norman. Unfortunately, Allie’s actions have destroyed Connor’s trust in her—and may destroy much, much more.

When the Devil Whistles, a thriller by Rick Acker, tells the story of a “whistleblower” and her lawyer as they get themselves into more trouble than they know how to handle. The story focuses heavily on the legal issues surrounding the protagonist’s career as a whistleblower (someone who gives insider information to the IRS or other government agencies when money or materials are mishandled or used illegally), and sometimes gets a bit bogged down in detail. Though it is clear the author is knowledgeable in his field, the story sometimes pays the price in the overzealous descriptions and explanations.

There is also a clear lack of spiritual focus in the story. One of the protagonists occasionally will mention God and send up a short prayer for guidance, but this seems out of character for him or her and almost appears to have been added to fill space. Nevertheless, the characters themselves go through clear and beneficial changes, gaining, at the very least, a more Christian morality.

I would recommend this book mostly for those who already have a basic understanding of legal practices and have the time for a lengthy and sometimes slow story. – Jordan A. Rockey, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    This book was a bit slow getting into at the start but it unfolds into a very good read. It open my eyes to now we jump when satan whistles. It help me face the fact that,

    "You always have a choice".

    Thanks
