My review of the novel is up today on TitleTrakk.com.
"James Scott Bell is an expert wordsmith, artfully placing us in the scene. We’re not just observing his characters, we’re involved with them."
Lawyer Sam Trask’s life is finally in order. His old drinking and success-at-any-cost ways have been replaced with embracing his family and his faith. Then Nicky Oberlin, an old college classmate, shows up. His first contact with Sam is an innocent enough e-mail. No big deal. Sam deletes the message. After all, he barely remembers the guy, and distractions in his already hectic schedule are not on the agenda. But there’s something about the tone of the message that makes Sam uneasy.
And rightfully so. Nicky Oberlin doesn’t take “no” for an answer, and soon his behavior escalates into harassment. Sam has sworn to uphold the law and defend the innocent as an attorney. But can the law protect him and his family from someone like Nicky Oberlin? Not when no law has been broken. Which is why Sam is forced to do something he never dreamed he’d do---take the law into his own hands.
