The story is set in Florida and Virginia/Washington, D.C. area. Griff is an FBI agent who is asked to take over a case for an agent with one month to go before trial. Then, that agent disappears and with the case hinging on his testimony the case is dismissed. The accused is the son of a presidential cabinet member. Griff was given a weekend to find the missing agent. He was successful in finding the agent, but not in getting him to court in time to testify. The judge presiding over the case is one with a no-nonsense, but fair demeanor. After the dismissal of the case, the judge asks for Griff's help in a personal matter. Griff agrees to begin searching for answers for the judge, which leads him to Skeeter, a recently released prisoner and his parole agent, Dawn Ahern.
So the story centers around two main events. The first one is the aforementioned judge's appointment to the Supreme Court after a hasty exit from the prior candidate for the position after a smear campaign. There is a nasty senator who has his eye on the White House and will do whatever necessary to eliminate anyone blocking his path to get there. Then, there is the personal investigation the judge as requested Griff to perform, the one trying to find his long lost brother. Through both investigations, readers get lots of action, intrigue and maybe a little romance for Griff. Griff has not wanted to enter a relationship for eight years after the death of his wife from cancer at a very young age. Now, he meets Dawn Ahern and they have many things in common and he is attracted to her, wanting more than friendship. She is a Christian and Griff is not. Will this pose a problem for their future?
While there was plenty of action, suspense and thrills, I thought there were too many character names and relationships to remember. I had to concentrate to keep everyone's name and relationships straight. That being said, this was still a terrific book! I loved seeing several characters begin to recognize God at work in their lives or even some begin to pray to God and see the results of their prayers so as to strengthen their faith. I thought that was a great thing to showcase in the story. I'm excited to see if Griff and Dawn are still together in the next book and how Griff is dealing with the idea of God being interested in his life and how he lives it. I look forward to reading The Camelot Conspiracy, which I will review here soon.

Tell us a little about yourself. David is a Christian and a retired Federal Agent. He retired from a career as a Special Agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration, following five years of service in what is now called the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigation Service). His coauthor and wife is Diane a Christian and attorney and former Federal prosecutor. We like to say that "He nailed them ... and she jailed them."
What was your motivation behind this project? It was our intention (with this and our other nine suspense thrillers) to write an entertaining and inspiring family friendly novel. Confirming Justice is actually inspired by the time we spent in Washington, DC, where Diane was a prosecuting attorney and David served on staff for two years on the U.S. Senate Permanent Committee of Investigations. We were inspired to write a thriller about the Federal judicial system and we also wove in one of David's undercover investigations in Florida.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? To be entertained, but also to be encouraged by seeing God's faithfulness exhibited in the lives of the Christian characters living out their lives in an environment filled with uncertainty and with people who do not share their faith.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Based on the reception from readers of our first novel, Facing Justice, we were inspired to write Confirming Justice and continue providing wholesome novels void of gratuitous sex, language, and violence, inspired us to keep writing.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: We refer to our books as "companion books" as each book stands alone, but the main characters reappear in the new books.
