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

    It is always better to tell the truth. This book shows how a lie about an accident affected the main characters life for years. The story itself is slow to get into but the depth of the characters helps make it interesting. I thought the conversations and details were excellently written. I did however, have to put the book down a few times and come back to it to make it through. It was just a bit slow for my taste but still a good story. I would recommend the book to anyone looking for an in-depth look at how guilt from the past can make your life better or worse. I would also recommend the book to any fans of this author as this book was better then his last!

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    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.
