A House Divided By Robert Whitlow

I review for BookLook Bloggers


I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

A father's mistakes nearly cost his children everything. Now his children must unite to take on the most important case of their respective careers.Corbin Gage is slowly drinking himself into the grave while running a small law practice in a small Georgia town. The assistant DA in the same community is his son Ray, poised for a professional breakthrough based on a job offer to work for the best law firm in the area.Roxy is Corbin's daughter, a rising star associate in Atlanta for an international law firm that specializes in high stakes, multi-million-dollar litigation.Against the advice of everyone in his life, Corbin Gage takes on a toxic tort case on behalf of three boys who have contracted non-Hodgkin's lymphoma due to an alleged chemical exposure. The defendant, a herbicide/pesticide/fertilizer company, is the largest employer in the area.Because of the lawsuit, Ray's job offer evaporates, forcing him to go to work with his father. Roxy's expertise in complex litigation draws her into the drama.As their investigation uncovers an audacious conspiracy to conceal dangers to their community, Corbin, Ray, and Roxy come to a personal treaty in their pursuit of justice. But they soon discover that burying a problem can have explosive results.

I have to say this type of book is not normally my cup of tea. I tend to prefer the book about cops, agents, and people of action. However I could not help, but be pulled in to this story as I read more and more of it. The author is a master story crafter whose style of writing just keeps pulling you deeper and deeper into the story until SUPRISE its the end of the book. I was left feeling like I wanted to seek out more of the book written by this author. I truly enjoyed the storyling and I liked the modern setting of the book. Overall I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to Christian readers who enjoy stories involving drama and law practices. I was sent this book for free for only my honest and unbiased review.
