The Confession by Robert Whitlow

About the Book:

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 fiancĂ©.
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?

My Thoughts:

Robert Whitlow's last novel was a little disappointing for me, so I requested my copy of "The Confession" with a bit of hesitation.  Turns out, I made a winning choice...Robert Whitlow's legal suspense is high octane and he hits it out of the courtroom with this one!

ADA Holt Douglas is hot on the trail of what he thinks might be a cover up.  After gaining access to a closed case file by accident, he goes against orders to ignore what he's read and he goes on digging, enlisting a friend from the sheriff's department to assist him.

Trish Carmichael is secretly carrying a torch for Holt, so she will do just about anything for him.  Question is would she knowingly break the law for him?  And Holt is carrying his own secret, one that could completely unravel his legal career.

You won't know who did the deed until the very end of the book and you won't see it coming.  That's great writing, reading friends, and I'm grateful to my friends at Thomas Nelson Publishing for my advance copy of "The Confession".  I confess that I loved this book, and I believe you will as well.

"The Confession" is available at bookstores and online wherever books are sold.

Happy Reading!
