Book Review: Water’s Edge

9 Dec

My book club met tonight and discussed Robert Whitlow’s newest book, Water’s Edge.  It  was a unanimous hit!  Robert Whitlow continues to produce wonderful legal suspense with a strong thread of faith running throughout.  We loved the main  character, Tom, and his uncle Elias.  Although we felt Tom’s salvation experience was a bit sudden, we all thought his reactions when life got tough very realistic, especially for a new believer.  We were not as happy with the female characters.  One member of our group didn’t think Tom’s love interest was good enough for him!  We had a great time discussing Water’s Edge and the other Whitlow novels we have read.  And of course, we are looking forward to a new offering from Whitlow, by far one of our favorite authors.

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.
