The Deposit Slip By Todd M. Johnson- Debut Novel

I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book.  The opinions express here are my own.

Book Description:

This Gripping Legal Thriller Is a Perfect Summer Read

When Jared Neaton grew tired of the shady ethics of his big law firm and left to go out on his own, he never expected the wheels to fly off so quickly. One big case collapsing on him has pushed him to the brink and it's all he can do to scrape by. He can't risk another bad loss.

Erin Larson is running out of options. In the wake of her father's death, she found a slim piece of paper--a deposit slip--with an unbelievable amount on it. Ten million dollars. Only the bank claims it has no record of the deposit and stonewalls her attempts to find out more. This lawsuit, her last chance, has brought only intimidation and threats. Now she needs to convince Jared to take a risk, to help her because the money is real. And both need to watch their backs as digging deeper unleashes something far more dangerous than just threats.
My Thoughts:

The Deposit Slip is Todd M. Johnson's debut novel and I enjoyed it. When I read the description on the back I was drawn in my by the story. I have always been a fan of legal thrillers and legal mysteries.  The law has always been a passion of mine so when I saw it, I knew this book would be for me.  I did not know until almost the end of the book that this novel is Todd M. Johnson's debut novel.  He writes with such authority about the law and bringing it to real life.  I got caught up in the story from the get go, having it hold my interest through until the end.  The plot took many twits and turns all the way until the end, it keeps you guessing. The characters were interesting and truly have real and tricky lives.   Their lives aren't perfect and not everything is solved by the end of the book. The writing and descriptions of the places like Ashley, MN felt like you are right there experiencing small town life. The Deposit Slip's themes include: righting wrongs, forgiveness, greed, jealousy, family relationship, and God's love.   I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Legal Suspense novels, you won't be disappointed.  I can't wait for more books from Todd M. Johnson!!
