My friend Ron Coia suggested I read this book by “the Christian John Grisham” – Randy Singer. While this book won’t make it into my top ten list this year, it was an intriguing and enjoyable read before drifting off to sleep each night.
If you like John Grisham books, you would probably like this book. There is plenty of legal tension, mystery, and suspense throughout the book. As such, I don’t want to discuss the plot much here.
While there are some indicators as to Singer’s Christian worldview, I never felt like the book was preachy or cliche as sometimes Christian fiction can be (which isn’t always a bad thing either). Nonetheless, this book does do a good job of helping the reader think through issues of guilt from hidden past sins, moral responsibility, and personal sacrifice.
If you’re looking for some light reading, or an alternative to another Grisham novel, give this book a try.
