I enjoy reading about family relationships. This book shows the strong pull of family and yikes I can't really write what I was about to type here because I don't want to give anything away. But I was deeply moved by this story. With high suspense and high drama this is a real page turner of a book.
An addicted lawyer struggles to keep clean while life seems to dump on him. He discovers his kidnapped brother is still alive but is on the other side of the law. The characters are not believable; one is a religious fanatic who has a following of young, strong men. He twists things upside down and inside out. It is difficult for me to believe that so many could believe an idiot like this. This novel is filled with metaphors and similes such that it drags. Then as if time is slipping away, it skips quickly to an unrealistic ending, leaving this reader scratching her head. I've read other novels that this author has penned and enjoyed them. This is not his best work.
