The Deposit Slip
Just when things can't possibly get any worse for her, Erin Larson discovers a deposit slip in her father's safe deposit box dated for February 10, 2008, three years earlier before her dad died. It's drawn on Ashley State Bank for the amount of $10.3 million dollars and Erin has no idea where the money is or how her father obtained it.
As she begins to inquire to the whereabouts of the funds through the bank, she is only told that no such deposit was ever made, and there is no account with that number at the bank. Yet what Erin can't figure out is why her father would have kept this deposit slip if it was worthless. As she tries to hire lawyers to represent her and begin to dig into the location of the money, she finds herself on the end of threats, harassing phone calls and even vandalizing of her car. Now she learns that the Paisley Law Firm is handling the case from bank's interest and she doesn't have the funds or even an attorney that seems interested in dealing with a high power law firm.
Until Jared Neaton is called by a former high power attorney by the name of Clay Strong. He advises Jared of the potential this case could do for his own struggling firm and has offered to front him $30,000 of expense money if he'll consider taking the case. Strapped and barely making ends me because of a failed trial that almost left him bankrupt, Jared is trying to keep his head above water since leaving the Paisley law firm where he met and was mentored by Clay.
Without any other proof other than a deposit slip, Jared wonders if this will be a repeat of the previous case he lost or will he be able to find the evidence he needs to go up against some of the best attorneys and possibly win. Things aren't looking too good, but what God uses best in circumstances like this, is when the odds are against us and it looks like we are at a dead end. That's when things begin to look up!
I received the debut novel, The Deposit Slip by Todd M. Johnson compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and literally read this one in a few hours. It's compelling, page turning, edge of your seat, all the way through the book and one you simply will not be able to put down. If you love novels where the high power attorneys are looking to take out the little guy, this is the perfect novel for you. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars for it's exceptional writing and it's ability to keep the reader engaged at a constant pace from beginning to end.
