    Book details

Corbin Gage can stand up to anyone . . . But his own divided house will bring him to his knees. Corbin, a longtime legal champion for the downtrodden, is slowly drinking himself into the grave. His love for "mountain water" has cost him his marriage to the godliest woman he knows, ruined his relationship with his daughter, Roxy, and reduced the business at his small Georgia law firm to a level where he can barely keep the bill collectors at bay. But it isn't until his son, Ray, threatens to limit Corbin's time with his grandson that Corbin begins to acknowledge he might have a problem. Despite the mess that surrounds his personal life and against the advice of everyone he knows, Corbin takes on a high-stakes tort case on behalf of two boys who have contracted non-Hodgkin's lymphoma due to an alleged chemical exposure. The defendant, a fertilizer company, is the largest employer in the area. The lawsuit becomes a tornado that sucks Corbin, Ray, and Roxy into an increasingly deadly vortex. Equally intense pressure within the family threatens to destroy, once and for all, the thin threads that connect them. Corbin must find the strength to stand up to his personal demons. Justice for two dying boys depends on it . . . his family depends on it. "Fans of John Grisham will find much to like here." -Library Journal of The Confession

Attorney and Christy Award-winning author Whitlow (The Trial) pens a character-driven story once again showcasing his legal expertise... Those anticipating an Erin Brockovich-style battle will be disappointed. Whitlow spends a good deal of time detailing the mechanics of Alcoholics Anonymous and hastily wraps up the court case. But Corbin is highly relatable, leaving readers rooting for his redemption even after family and friends have written him off. * Publisher's Weekly * 4 stars. Whitlow expertly weaves intricate detail into a legal thriller centered on chemical exposure. Corbin is a flawed, complex character, and his raw interactions with the other characters, including his children, will hook readers. A unique plot, strong tension and steady pacing makes Whitlow's latest a top notch must read. * Romantic Times *
