The Deposit Slip by Todd M. Johnson
How far would you be willing to go to recover 10 million? Jared Neaton never had to ask himself that question until he is approached to represent a client who is trying to discover why her deceased father had a deposit slip for over 10 million in a safety deposit box. Left with a depleted bank account after his last big case went south, Jared decides to help Erin Larson out as a means to redeem himself and prove he isn't like his father.
Fast pace and original, I loved this book! The author did a fabulous job of providing details and yet didn't let the story become bogged down with excessive details. I think the story is all the more well written because the author is a lawyer himself, so he writes about what he knows. The characters were well developed; really the only thing I didn't care about with how the villain was dealt with in the end.
This story has a wonderful, gentle message about forgiveness and God's love. I look forward to reading more books by this author!
