Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5An Interesting Legal Thriller!January 24, 2017Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4"The woman who loved me with a solid, dependable love came to see me today. And I could hardly look at her."
Mega-church pastor Ron Hamilton's star has tumbled into an unfathomable abyss following his arrest for the murder of a young porn star, Melinda Perry. Incredibly ironic, since Ron and his wife Dallas are known through-out the Los Angeles area for fighting hard against the multi-million dollar industry. The evidence against Ron is overwhelming, but Dallas Hamilton is determined to find the truth. Admitting that her husband made an error in judgment, she cannot bring herself to believe that he is a murderer, insisting instead that someone set Ron up.
As Ron's future grows dim , the dark tentacles of evil grow stronger, threatening to strangle the very life out of Dallas and her grown son, Jared. This legal thriller seems to always have a surprise or two around every bend, making "Presumed Guilty" a very satisfying read.
Thomas5 Stars Out Of 5April 26, 2010ThomasI 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.
Christine Howard1 Stars Out Of 5September 17, 2008Christine HowardPresumed 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?

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.
C.J. Darlington5 Stars Out Of 5May 17, 2006C.J. DarlingtonBell 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.
