ABOUT THE CONFESSION
In Holt Douglas's line of work, there's nothing sweeter than a confession of guilt.
Assistant D.A. Holt Douglas makes his living exposing lies and sending criminals to jail in Ashley County, Georgia. His job is always easier when defendants, instead of remaining silent, blame someone else or try to excuse their actions. With a confession in his hand, Holt knows a guilty plea will soon follow.
But lurking in Holt's past is a dark secret that could end his successful career and possibly his relationship with Angelina, his hoped for fiancé.
When Holt reopens a cold case involving the death of the town's wealthiest businessman-allegedly killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest-Holt doesn't believe it was suicide. Instead, he suspects murder.
As he investigates, Holt's own guilt threatens to destroy him and the cause of justice he's sworn to serve. While he knows his own confession could absolve him of his sin, it could cost him his future. Will he survive long enough to uncover the true crime that this small southern town has been hiding?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Robert Whitlow grew up in north Georgia. He graduated magna cum laude from Furman University with a BA in history in 1976 and received his JD with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1979. A practicing attorney, he is a partner in a Charlotte, NC law firm. He and his wife Kathy have four children and three grandchildren.
Robert began writing in 1996. His novels are set in the South and include both legal suspense and interesting characterization. It is his desire to write stories that reveal some of the ways God interacts with people in realistic scenerios.
The Confession by Robert Whitlow is an excellent book. It shows us we can come to conclusions about different things and be totally wrong. We can hold hate or anger in our hearts about something that happened or hold onto anger because you have been wronged, but the only way to live is to have true forgiveness and continue with your life.
In this book Holt is hiding something, but tries to put it out of his mind. He tries to right the wrong that others are doing, while he keeps his past secret.
The Confession is full of mystery, intrigue, suspense and even romance. In this novel there are so many twists and turns that you will be amazed at the outcome of the story. I really love a good suspenseful book and The Confession did not disappoint. I highly recommend this book. It will be a favorite of yours. Very, very good book.
