A House Divided
By Robert Whitlow
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.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
In his new book, Robert Whitlow deals with alcoholism, and the difficult problems that are caused by this really bad problem. There is a lot of tension flying around because of Corbin’s drinking problem, and it didn’t help any when he takes on a case forcing his son to work for him. This is one of the best suspense stories I have read in a while. It will sure keep you on the edge of your seats. The characters are just like real! It all seems like reading something about a real family and real situation. Mr. Whitlow does a fantastic job of writing a story, and this is one of his best. I highly recommend A House Divided.
