Publisher's Summary

Attorney Ken McClain has nothing to live for. Nine years after the accident that claimed the life of his wife and two sons, he's finally given up. Alone in his empty house, it seems suicide is his only escape. Now the question of death by pills or by bullet? Then suddenly the phone rings, and it turns out to be a case he can't refuse. A case for the life of accused killer Peter Thomason, and a case for his own soul.
With a style reminiscent of John Grisham and Frank Peretti, Robert Whitlow has mastered the art of legal suspense novels. The book edition has earned the prestigious Christy Award.

Whitlow does a great job developing the characters and their relationships with one another throughout his novel. There was enough suspense and romance to keep my attention. I liked the tender ending. Just a reminder for those who had problems with the Scriptural content and religious influence…the book is listed in the “religious/Christianity” section of audible.

Impacting! Was blown away by this true story!

Where does The Trial rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the top of my list!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Trial?

This story was all memorable. I felt I was there. I did not find out that this story was based on a true historical person and account until AFTER I finished. This made the story more incredible!

Have you listened to any of Rob Lamont’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Rob Lamont gave a beautiful performance. Each character was powerful.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

At times this books graphics descriptions were almost to much. But I had to keep going to the end. The story is that good!
