Robert Whitlow in his new book, “Confession book coverThe Confession”  published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Holt Douglas .

From the back cover:   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 fiancé.

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?

Suspense and intrigue abound in this new thriller by Robert Whitlow.  I wasn’t sure exactly how Mr. Whitlow was going to get this going but he has a way of drawing you into the story and keeping you there, willingly I might add.  Holt Douglas is an Assistant D.A. that is a hard liner when it comes to criminals. That’s because of an incident with his best friend that lies hidden in the grave. It all starts to come out when he pursues a cold case. The Confession is full of mystery and even romance. In The Confession there are so many twists and turns that you will be amazed at the outcome of the story. Robert Whitlow has written an interesting story that moves along at a remarkably brisk pace.  “The Confession” is full of interesting characters that keep us involved in the story.  “The Confession” is a powerful story and one that will keep you highly interested and flipping pages as fast as you can.  I liked this book and recommend it to your reading list.
