Full Product Description
When Jared Neaton grew tired of the shady ethics of his big law firm and

With an irresistible set-up, suspense, a subtle love triangle, strong dialogue,Publishers Weekly’s June 4th issue.
Debut novelist Johnson, like fellow Christian novelists James Scott Bell and Randy Singer, has worked many years as a trial lawyer, a profession that seems to serve budding novelists well, perhaps not because they are accustomed to framing and structuring narratives of event but because they have seen much of the underbelly of society. When Erin Larson finds a deposit slip for $10 million in her recently deceased father?s safety deposit box, she hires Jared Neaton to help her find out where the money came from and why she never saw any signs of it. To take the case, Neaton must return to his hometown and face his father, who did time in prison for embezzlement. Johnson writes vividly; describing Neaton?s fathers eyes, he writes, ?They showed no fight; only a rush of unexpected pain. It drained all the satisfaction out of the rage, seeing his dad like a fighter who wouldn?t raise his gloves.? With an irresistible set-up, suspense, a subtle love triangle, strong dialogue, characters, and a focused plot, Johnson makes a strong first literary case.

It is difficult to believe that this accomplished, Grisham-esque tale is a first novel for Todd Johnson. Despite the fact that the blurb focuses on the female client’s woes, this is substantially the story of lawyer, Jared Neaton and his struggles to stay afloat both financially and ethically while pitted against big law firms for whom neither money nor ethics are any object. Neaton is a well-drawn, believable character whose relationships with his father, secretary and colleagues ebb and flow around his obsessive commitment to his work. The story is complex and intriguing, centring on a deposit slip for $10,000,000 found by Erin Larson amongst her late father’s possessions, about which the bank denies all knowledge. Where did the money come from? Where did it go? And why do so many influential people want to stop her – and her lawyer – pursuing the matter at any cost? Todd Johnson achieves the difficult feat of making the ending both satisfying and credible, while also leaving it open for a possible sequel.
