Description
In his absorbing stand-alone fourth legal thriller, Christy Awarduwinner Singer proves that faith and suspense can make delightful bedfellows. Sixteen-year-old Tara Bannister is accused of murdering her alcoholic, abusive and wealthy stepfather on Good Friday. "I'm glad he's dead," the rebellious teenager tells young lawyer Leslie Conners, assuring her that she had pulled the trigger. It's Leslie's first case and she's got a tough defense ahead. Dysfunction abounds: Tara's abused mother is suspected of infidelity, and her young stepbrother battles Tourette syndrome. Further complicating things is Harlan Fowler, trustee for the estate, whose own motivations are more complex than they first appear. Leslie's fianc and law partner, Brad Carson, who is simultaneously bringing a lawsuit on behalf of a Fabio look-alike against a romance reality show, aids Leslie in her defense of Tara. Matters intensify when Leslie discovers she has a life-threatening heart condition. It's a complicated tale, with some winding and twisting subplots, and Singer adeptly keeps the reader guessing throughout. He spins his story in first-person present tense, which only occasionally gets stiff. Fans of Singer's Directed Verdict and other novels will enjoy appearances from familiar characters. Overall, evangelical Christian readers will find that although Singer is more long-winded and evangelistic, he is every bit as enjoyable as John Grisham. - Publishers Weekly

display_descriptionTara Bannister's abusive stepfather finally pushed her too far. To save herself she had to kill him. Or did she? Tara's confession doesn't add up, and as her self-defense claim crumbles, attorney Leslie Connors must overcome more than first-trial jitters to mount a credible defense. Leslie must save Tara's life-against her client's will. In the midst of this taxing case, Leslie's wedding plans to law partner Brad Carson are interrupted by a devastating diagnosis. Does she dare tell Brad? Before the final gavel falls, Leslie must confront the truth about herself and her mysterious client, or the darkness of the past will swallow them both.
