                There are times when I am reading a novel that I want to know more about the person who wrote it or the subject matter, maybe even what others have written in their reviews.  It is great to see a novel come along that shows there is more to life than just one decision or mistake.  The main male character, named Landon Reed, who has been released from jail, is now able to live a totally brand new life.  Landon became a Christian while in jail due to a choice he made while in college, and while that brought disastrous results at first, later on even better fruit comes forth.
                As a first year lawyer, Landon goes through mishaps at the firm he is working at and is now trying his first major case as a defense lawyer.  The other case is about setting up off shore accounts by his current client, who now faces indictment for two murders.  Kerri waited for Landon to be released from incarceration to provide for their daughter while she worked at a local television news desk.  Kerri loves being an investigative reporter.  While Landon is working hard as a lawyer, Kerri meets with a clandestine figure with a promise not to reveal anything until he grants permission.  She is looking to always reach her highest dreams when Sean Phoenix comes with the promise of a story to make any journalists career soar, but at what cost?  Sean Phoenix is the head of a security firm called Cipher Inc., which does covert operations for clients who desire anonymity.  However, is that all Cipher Inc. does or is there more going on?
                Their marriage is under fire, partners in the law firm Landon is working with are turning up dead, and now they have constant protection as three partners of the firm Landon works for may have been murdered and with only two partners left and a high profile case no chances are being taken that Landon maybe the next target.  The novel is full of twists, turns and pulse raising scenes that will keep you wanting to know what happens next.  One of the other characteristics I like is that the chapters are short, which makes the story action move swiftly along, being able to easily read it while waiting at the doctor’s office or other places.  There is so much more to the novel than I can share, and I just don’t want to ruin it for you!  If you would like to read the first chapter, click the link (beware though you will get hooked!): http://files.tyndale.com/thpdata/FirstChapters/978-1-4143-8675-1.pdf
                My rating is 5+ stars!
