This is not just another fiction book written about lawyers, by a lawyer. It had me hooked from the very first pages and kept me there until the end. I hated characters, loved characters, and cheered for them until the very end. The story has a twist for the ending, and I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Christian themes with real heroes who win at the end of the day.

In Virginia Beach, Thomas and Theresa Hammond place their faith in prayer as they are deeply religious adhering to a strict fundamental interpretation of the Lord¿s word. When their youngest child two years old Joshua becomes gravelly ill and with the Hammonds having no money, they pray to the Lord to heal their son. Three days later the child is rushed to the hospital, but it is too late and he dies................................... The law comes down hard on the parents, blaming them for the death of their son due to negligent homicide. The media portrays the pair as somber pious fanatics whose inflexible attitude killed their child. No one cares that they had no money or health insurance leaving them to believe their only option was to pray for a miracle. The court places their other two children in the care of Special Advocate Nikki Moreno awaiting the outcome of the trial of the Hammonds. Deputy Commonwealth Attorney General Rebecca ¿Barracuda¿ Crawford sees this case as an opportunity to further her political ambitions by hanging the Hammonds for child abuse and cruelty. Nikki enlists Regent Law School Professor and street preacher Charles Arnold to counter the dirty tricks pulled by the Barracuda who cares naught for a dead child and even less for justice............................. This is a magnificent legal thriller that provides deep insight into the issues of protecting children, freedom of religion and our health system failing the working poor. The cast feels genuine especially the accused and their confused surviving children. Though the Barracuda¿s ambitions is two degrees beyond Lady Macbeth, fans will take immense pleasure in a well written, easy to follow terse drama that expertly lays out several societal moral issues and failures.........................

Thomas and Theresa Hammond are very religious and believe in stern discipline. When their youngest son, Joshua, is sick, they turn to their faith. After three days, they rush Joshua to the hospital but the boy dies while there. The Hammonds are then faced with charges of negligent homicide and child abuse. ......................... Nikki Moreno is the Special Advocate. The judge presiding places five-year-old John Paul 'Tiger' and his little sister, Hannah 'Stinky', in Nikki's care pending their parents' trial. (Yes, unusual. The author did well on explaining how and why.) .................... Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney Rebecca Crawford (A.K.A. the Barracuda) is up for election soon and uses the case to her advantage for good press. With the public watching her every move, she pulls all the tricks in her arsenal against the Hammonds. ................... Nikki goes for back up in the form of Professor Charles Arnold. Charles teaches at Regent Law School and is a street evangelist. Between the two of them, they know every legal trick in the books ... and some that are not. ..................... **** This is a wonderful story for all fans of court TV or fictional legal books. I estimate that about half the book is set in the court room. So if you do not care for that, avoid this novel. However, the author does an incredible job of explaining it all in terms that any layman can understand. Nothing will overwhelm you. A terrific legal drama! ****
