Book Description

In Holt Douglas’s line of work, there’s nothing sweeter than a confession of guilt.

Assistant D.A. Holt Douglas makes his living exposing lies and sending criminals to jail in Ashley County, Georgia. His job is always easier when defendants, instead of remaining silent, blame someone else or try to excuse their actions. With a confession in his hand, Holt knows a guilty plea will soon follow.

But lurking in Holt’s past is a dark secret that could end his successful career and possibly his relationship with Angelina, his hoped for fiancé.

When Holt reopens a cold case involving the death of the town’s wealthiest businessman-allegedly killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest-Holt doesn’t believe it was suicide. Instead, he suspects murder.

As he investigates, Holt’s own guilt threatens to destroy him and the cause of justice he’s sworn to serve. While he knows his own confession could absolve him of his sin, it could cost him his future. Will he survive long enough to uncover the true crime that this small southern town has been hiding?



What if you had a secret that goes back ten years, and if it comes to surface, you could very well spend time in jail. Would you confess and come clean? This is the life of Holt Douglas. Douglas is a young DA working in a Prosecutors office that makes sure criminals are brought to justice. But what about his own case? Can he find the truth that happened ten years ago, or will he turn himself in and have a future of jail time?

Robert Whitlow pulls you into this story and keeps you engulfed in the plot  throughout this entire book. I love that he weaves Scriptures from the Bible into the lives of his characters and plot. I was in awe reading this entire book. I found myself looking at things in my own life, and the things I needed to confess and get straight before God. This is truly a book that will show you sin in the lives of believers, and shows what happens when confessing, repenting and asking for forgiveness. And it also so wonderfully shows the powerful love, mercy, grace and forgiveness of out Lord! What a wonderful book for everyone to read. I haven’t read one of Robert Whitlows books yet that I didn’t like, and this one is just over the top!

I received this book from BookLook Bloggers to read and review. 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 55.
