Water's Edge by Robert Whitlow
I haven’t read a book like Water’s Edge for a long time; not since I used to read stuff by Grisham. I don’t know how I stopped reading these “legal thriller” type books, but I was so pleased with this one! I do not have any background in the legal field, and that did not stop me from enjoying this book immensely.
The main character in this book, Tom Crane, is a lawyer who as the book begins, has just lost his father, his job, and his girlfriend (and even his cat!) He goes back to his hometown to close out his father’s law practice and stay with his uncle for awhile. While in this process he becomes entangled in something his father left behind and also develops a relationship with the Lord.
The book has many characters which the author develops nicely. They add to the main story line of the book, and are interesting to read about. When reading through the book, it seems to go slowly, as it is a nice “meaty” kind of book, but in my opinion, it’s the kind of book one wants to last awhile, not a “fluffy” book (though I do like those too!) It is a nice little mystery and has a real Christian content too, not just a little bit of religious mention, but a picture of Christ’s working in someone’s life. Now, don’t get the idea, however, that it’s a preachy type of book—it’s not at all. It’s a nice, clean, interesting mystery book—and I would certainly recommend it! I’ll definitely look for other books by this author, Robert Whitlow!
