This is the second book I have read of Robert's, and I really enjoyed it. I like legal thrillers, which probably comes from having lawyers in the family. The book switches from past to present rather easily, it is not difficult to follow. The relationship between grandfather and grandson is very close and Robert shows that all through out the book. Parker and his grandfather share a special gift that becomes more evident as you read the book.
Parker's grandfather is looking for peace, and learning how to forgive himself.
I like the way that Robert writes, he creates believable characters and situations, and he draws you into the story and you feel like you are apart of the story.
