Erin Larson is running out of options. In the wake of her father's death, she found a slim piece of paper--a deposit slip--with an unbelievable amount on it. Only the bank claims they have no record of the money, and trying to hire a lawyer has brought only intimidation and threats. Erin's last chance is Jared Neaton.
When Jared wearied of the shady ethics of his big law firm and started his own, he never expected the wheels to fly off so quickly. One big loss has pushed him to the brink, and it's all he can do to scrape by.
Todd Johnson's debut novel is impeccable. The author shows a rare ability to combine high stakes with great characters and a profound moral concept... Highly recommended.
Davis Bunn, bestselling author of Lion of Babylon
"This involving, well-written debut novel is a character-driven legal thriller... a page-turner worth reading."
St. Paul Pioneer Press
Johnson writes vividly... With an irresistible set-up, suspense, a subtle love triangle, strong dialogue, characters, and a focused plot, Johnson makes a strong first literary case.
