#Review The Witnesses by Robert Whitlow

The Witnesses

Young lawyer Parker House is on the rise—until his grandfather’s mysterious past puts both of their lives in danger.

Parker House’s secret inheritance is either his greatest blessing . . . or his deadliest curse. The fresh-faced North Carolina attorney shares his German grandfather’s uncanny ability to see future events in his mind’s eye—a gift that has haunted 82-year-old Frank House through decades of trying to erase a murderous wartime past.

While Parker navigates the intrigue and politics of small-town courtroom law, Frank is forced to face his darkest regrets. Then, a big career break for Parker collides with a new love he longs to nurture and the nightmares his grandfather can no longer escape. Sudden peril threatens to shatter not only Parker’s legal prospects but also his life and the lives of those dearest to him.

Two witnesses, two paths, an uncertain future.

This book was right up my alley! It was packed with suspense and mystery from beginning to end. The author has the skill of writing in such a way that the reader is pulled in not only by cover and title but from the first chapter. There was no lull in the writing or the story. This book does a hint of 'psychic' abilities as the grandfather and the grandson both have the ability to foresee future events. That isn't really my thing but added for intensity to the story. What really pulled me into this story was the legal aspect of it all. I love reading about legal dramas. With this story, you feel like you're right inside the courtroom in the middle of all the excitement and drama. The two-fold timeline made this story even more fun as you go back and forth between the two stories intertwining into one story at the end. I fully enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author. 

I received a complimentary ARC from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
