I received this book free from booksneeze.com for my honest review of this book.
Sometimes the smallest towns hold the biggest secrets. Ambitious young attorney Tom Crane is about to become a partner in a big-city law firm. One final matter has to be cleared from his docket—the closing of his deceased father’s law practice in the small town of Bethel. Killed in a tragic boating accident, John Crane didn’t leave his son anything except the hassle of a bankrupt estate.
Then, within twenty-four hours, Tom loses his job, his girlfriend, and his cat. Job didn’t have it much worse.
Returning to Bethel with his pride ground to powder, Tom’s plan to quietly shut down his father’s practice and slink out-of-town runs into an unexpected roadblock—two million dollars of unclaimed money stashed in a secret bank account. Tom follows the money into a tangled web of lies, theft, and off-shore financial transactions manipulated by powerful men who will do anything to stop him from discovering the truth
Water’s Edge is the first book of Robert Whitlow’s I have read and all I can say is I am hooked!! Water’s Edge is about a lawyer in Atlanta who needs to go back to his hometown of Bethel, Ga to close his father’s law practice after his death. The day before he left he lost his job and his girlfriend. Tom Crane heads to Bethel to stay with his Great Uncle, Elias, a retired minister. Tom finds himself in an uncomfortable situation. His Uncle is a very spiritual man and Tom is not anymore. As he begins closing out his father’s office Tom finds himself in the middle of a mess of criminal activity by very powerful people in town that had been family friends for years. Tom also finds God and goes on a spiritual journey.
Water’s Edge is an awesome legal thriller. Robert Whitlow writes about good and evil, spiritual and personal awakenings, faith and love. This story was an edge of your seat story that was very hard to put down once you start. Robert Whitlow writes with such expertise of not just the legal aspects but spiritual aspects with a perfect balance. The characters in this story are very deep and real who encounter real life issues. You feel like you are right there in the story. As a fan of John Grisham and other legal thriller authors, Robert Whitlow is fantastic. I look forward to reading more of his books. I recommend this book to fans of John Grisham and fans of Legal drama and Christian fiction. Thank you booksneeze.com for the opportunity to read this!
