Editorial Reviews
Robertson's lean and witty writing style fits the plot well. The story is told in first person through Jason's intelligent persona and delivered with enough literary razzle dazzle to make it appeal to not only the plot addict but the word junkie as well.

The Heir is a novel that begins with a bang, then set on simmer . . . until things start to boil over. It then gets exciting as Jason is forced to make the toughest decision of his life while he deals with a fraying marriage and the fact that, although he may hate his dead father, he can be just as ruthless. Robertson's writing is spine-tingling leading up the climax, with short, choppy sentences that held this reader on the edge of his chair until the very end.
I can't wait to read more of Robertson's work, especially seeing as this is his first novel. Bethany House has got another winner to go along with other recent acquisitions as T.L. Hines and Robin Parrish.
The plot spirals into a tight web of intrigue as power rushes to fill the vacuum left by his father's death and Jason tries to right the wrongs of the past. Reading Jason work his way through to a purpose was like watching a newborn calf stand for the first time. Everything does not tie up in a neat package at the end of this book - much like life refuses to fall into simple lines. However, it is a satisfying read and worth the investment of time.
—Cara Putman
Intense and compelling, The Heir is a fast, smart read. The tension and suspense constantly build off one another. Often frustrating, frequently humorous, always thought provoking, The Heir has the makings of a mystery classic. I would love to see it on the big screen! I cannot wait to see what else Robertson has in store for his readers, his fans!
—Phillip Tomasso III
If you like film noir and the suspense genre, The Heir is right up your (dark) alley. On the other hand, if you usually steer clear of these mean streets but are always game for good writing and a tale well-told, you too will find much to like about Robertson's debut novel.
—Heather Hunt
Think drag racing. Robertson slammed his foot on the accelerator and the G-force kept me pinned to the chair until I closed the cover. New plot twists are revealed in a blur, more people die. Red herrings whiz through the air. I couldn't figure out who the killer was. That's a big deal. I'm disappointed if a mystery is too easy to solve.
