Murder and mayhem, there is nothing better for a day of reading. Robert Whitlow is a master at writing a book that keeps you engaged from cover to cover. The Confession promises to be another of his great legal thrillers.
Holt Douglas is the assistant DA and has made it his thing to get confessions from criminals with a guilty plea to follow shortly after. He prides himself on the number of confessions he has gotten, it makes him both loved and hated by people, but he harbors a secret, a secret that he has long kept buried in the grave of a friend.
Holt decides to reopen a cold case that looked like suicide. He believes that the town’s wealthiest citizen didn’t kill himself but was murdered. But as Holt digs more and more in to the evidence, it starts to open him up to his own guilty conscience. With everything on the line he is skirting between truth and lies and needs to figure out how to survive.
I am always glad to see a new mystery come in and when it is from a favorite author, all the better. Mysteries is the one genre I could not live without. I love a good mystery and one that keeps me guessing all the way to the end, all the better.
