It's a rare author who's words on a page can deliver such intense emotional feelings in her readers. And that's exactly what you'll find in Julie Compton's debut novel Tell No Lies published in 2008.
Julie gives us a realistic story line with her politico/legal drama. Her dialogue is vivid and witty interspersed with dramatic court-room legalese, dialogue so intense you will find yourself exhibiting the same emotions as the characters in this prosecutory emotionally charged novel. And oh my, her characters, they are wonderful, interesting, realistic and three dimensional. They make the story and as she introduces us to each one it becomes obvious as their importance in the telling of the tale, especially her charismatic protagonist Jack as this story is mostly his. Her scenes are described with such precision that you can easily imagine yourself a fly on the wall. There are some love scenes that she handles with dignity and raw emotion.
If you love great fiction, awesome storytelling, brilliant dialogue and phenomenal characters I think this novel will fit the bill. If you're a fan of court-room or crime drama, this is it. If you love literary fiction it's here too. If you just want to escape in some one else's make believe troubles and wallow in their dilemmas this is what you want.
Be sure to check out Julie's brand new novel Rescuing Olivia.

Strong Characters and Great Plot with a Twist
The main character, Jack, is someone we can all relate to on some level in that he strives to be a good person by doing what's "right" in a world that does not always reward such behavior.<BR/><BR/>Jack's attempts to make "good" decisions while struggling to come to terms and deal with life's daily demands of job and family, pressures to compromise personal beliefs in order to succeed, and a unavoidable physical tempatation(a hottie at work Jack lusts after - great sexual tension scenes) makes for a very intriguing character. Add in the plot involving a murder mystery with a twist and you get one of my favorite books this year. <BR/><BR/>I found myself admiring, hating, and feeling sorry for Jack all in the same book. We discussed at my book club and it was interesting how readers either end up hating or loving Jack - no one in between.<BR/><BR/>Great read!

A Good Solid Read
Fellow ITW Debut Author, Julie Compton, begins her writing career in fine style with a fast moving, quick read. What begins as an innocent kiss, takes a turn with deep reaching consequences. Without giving the story away, I'll say that the story's protagonist, Jack, is in for a soul searching ride. Torn between two options ¿ both damaging and potentially devistating to his career and family ¿ he will let his conscience guide his actions. A good solid read with authentic courtroom action.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
