    1 thought on “The Trial”

    1. THE TRIALI watched the movie a few years ago, it was very good. But this book is so very much better. Good characters, good story.

    2. A very good, tautly paced, and suspenseful legal thriller. It's the first book by this author I have read, but I'll be looking for others.

    3. RESEÑA COMPLETA*NOTA: Este libro fue llevado al cine en el 2010 con el mismo nombre. Tanto la película como el libro están disponibles en español*Increíble narrativa.El juicio es un libro que he visto varias veces en la librería, pero por una razón inexplicable, no me animaba a comprarlo. Ahora me arrepiento de no haberlo leído antes.Este libro es magnífico. Me encantó la narración del autor porque no sólo es ficción para disfrutar, sino que está muy bien escrito. Además, la histo [...]

    4. 3.5 starsWhy did I choose this novel? It won a Christy award and I have an informal goal of reading all of the Christy winners.I have two different opinions about this book. First 3/4's of the book - well-paced, good character development, interesting look at preparing for a trial.Last 1/4 of the book - rushed, character development was a stretch, ending required slightly more than a suspension of disbelief. Maybe if the ending had more of a build-up throughout the novelThat said, I couldn't put [...]

    5. De principio a fin quedé enamorada de este libro. La historia, la narración, los personajes, todo es perfecto.La historia hizo que quiera ser abogada, inocente, culpable, mejor dicho, estar dentro del libro y convivir con los personajes. No sólo los hechos fueron increibles en la historia, sino también el mensaje. Siempre hay perdon para el que de veras decide arrepentirse.Me enteré que también tiene adaptación cinematográfica, así que ya quiero ver la peli :)

    6. Whitlow reminds me of a Christian John Grisham. Excellent writing. The details of the case and the murder investigation had me on the edge of my seat. The spiritual development of the main character and others was skillfully woven into the storyline. Mac was very sympathetic and likable even during those moments of bitterness and anger toward God. When he finally surrenders to Jesus and lets go of the pain and guilt, I wanted to celebrate. Can't wait to read more of Whitlow's books.

    7. The only thing worse than being accused of murder, is not being able to remember whether or not you did. The daughter of Alex Hightower, business tycoon of Dennison Springs, Angela is found at the bottom of a cliff and someone has to pay. All eyes turn to Pete Thomason, who finds himself arrested, accused of murder, and assigned a state appointed lawyer. Attorney Mac McClain lives an empty life in an empty house, daily missing his wife and two sons. Suicidal thoughts haunt him through the day, u [...]

    8. The idea of defending a client so that he doesn't receive the death penalty for a murder he says, and you've come to believe, that he didn't commit would be stressful for anyone, let alone a lawyer who is feeling his life has no value right now. Robert Whitlow does a marvelous job exploring this issue, adding in some clean romance, a curious family dynamic, medical emergencies, spiritual growth, salvation, the power of prayer, and the question of how far our forgiveness can extend itself when we [...]

    9. I borrowed this book from a friend, and at first I considered returning it right away after reading about 5 chapters, as it was kinda "Jesus-y".I'm not into that. But aside from religious overtones, the storyline was awesome! It was a compelling read, for sure! Even when I thought I had the bad guy pinned, I ended up being wrong! A solid four stars!

    10. This book was so so. I think I would have liked it more, if there wasn't so much religious reference in it. I just felt there was so much of it, that it took away from the actual trial and story line.e of that, I wouldn't recommend this book to others, unless they are more on the religious side.

    11. Touching and inspiringI really liked this book. It was inspiring to read. I liked the characters and how the author fleshed them out; you really began to care for them. I also liked the religious aspects of the book. It is refreshing to read a book with a good story line that isn't filled with sex and profanity. Thank you sir. I will certainly read more of your books.

    12. This was a great book - but am not a reader that enjoys my fiction written with religious undertone. Jesus and prayer don't appeal to me and I don't pick up any books labeled as such. I am not sure how books or writers get the Christian label, but if it wasn't for that I would read more by this writer.

    13. Book so much better than the movie!I began the book and when mid-through saw that there was a movie available. What a disappointment. Did not do the book justice, poor acting, not all the same characters in either, so I went back and finished the book. Really glad I did. Mr Whitlow, don't let the movie moguls ruin your books ever again.

    14. I am genuinely surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It drives forward with the fervour of a racecar, and yet pauses for moments of thoughtfulness. The Gospel truth is presented in an honest and authentic way that does not come across as peachy, corny, or disengenuos.

    15. If I could eliminate the over the top religious pages.is would be a 5 star story! I absolutely loved the writing unless people were saying things like "how did you help him with the burden of the lord?", or going on 15 day fasts so they could help someone (?). Again, top-notch otherwise.

    16. Intriguing story about the trial of a falsely accused man that God uses to work in the lives of the lawyer and some prisoners

    17. Attorney Kent "Mac" MacClain is on the brink--nine years earlier, he was at the wheel in a horrible accident that took the lives of his wife and children. Mac is having a spiritual crisis--feeling unable to deal with the deep pain and hurt the accident placed upon his heart and soul and decides the time has come to end his own lfie, when the phone rings in his office. He has been asked to take on the case of Pete Thomason, a man who is accused of killing Angela Hightower, the daughter of a famil [...]

    18. IncredibleI love the writing of Robert Whitlow. As I read this book, I could see, hear, and feel the experiences of the characters.

    19. This book covered the appointment of Mac McClain to defend Pete Thomason in a capital murder case where Thomason was accused of killing his friend - possibly girlfriend. The book covered from the appointment to the end of the case. As part of the case, Mac hired a psychologist to evaluate the defendant. After the evaluation took place, Mac and Anna, the psychologist, began exploring a friendship, possibly to lead to more. (view spoiler)[The author threw in some major hints that Pete was being se [...]

    20. I was so disappointed in this book. I was thinking I was going to get a Grisham-like book, and instead I got some cheesy become a Christian, pray and all things will right themselves.It was billed to me as a legal thriller book - legal, yes; thriller - umm, no. Unless hiking through woods, everyone turning their lives around, finding true love, and everything wrapped up all nice and lovely counts as a thriller. Okay, so there was one semi-scary part in the book, but alas, I am scratching my head [...]

    21. I'm pleased to have discovered Mr. Whitlow's work. This was a legal drama set against the intrigue of a powerful family, an innocent defendant on trial for his life, a damaged lawyer, an eager and upcoming legal eagle, and a sweet budding romance. But most importantly for me, as a disciple of Christ, it made much of the power of the gospel to make all things new and to give hope where none may be expected. I read one review that criticized the book (unduly in my judgment) for presenting the stor [...]

    22. There's a lot I could say about this book, and there's a lot I can't say about it. Mac McClain is a man haunted by the memory of his wife and sons, all three killed in a car accident nine years ago. In his law office one Friday night, he decides to commit suicide, but he gets a call appointing him to defend Pete Thomason, the man charged with the murder of heiress Angela Hightower.I can honestly say I was very moved while reading this book. There's genuine doubt as to Pete's innocence, and Mac's [...]

    23. Now hold it, hold it! Has everyone had their come to Jesus moment? Mhmmmhmm. Suitably G romantic interests drawn out from the main characters? Check. "Shocking" plot twistsat, um, sort of. Didn't go in expecting a "Christian" thriller, so perhaps I'm reacting with surprise because of that. Still, disappointing. The message is literally "become a Christian and everything good happens. You get out of jail, crazy people are healed, and you won't faint after not eating for over 14 days." Thus, it's [...]

    24. "There are many ways to worship God. A song, a prayer, a word, a poem, a phrase, an emotion, a physical act, an intention of the heart, and countless other expressions can fix within the framework of accepted adoration. But this day, the women worshipped in the beauty of quiet holiness. It was the activity of heaven brought to earth."How often in a book of murder and intrigue, of law and court settings, would you find such a quote or many other examples of how the Lord Jesus Christ has influence [...]

    25. Mac McClain is a lawyer about to kill himself after 9 years of living with guilt of surviving a car accident that killed his wife and 2 teenage sons. He receives a phone call and ends up defending a young man Pete Thomason accused of killing Angela Hightower. The Hightowers are a wealthy, well-connected family. Pete can't remember anything. Turns out he was drugged. Mac hires a new lawyer named David who is a Christian and meets Anna, a psychologist he uses to interview Pete. She is a Christian [...]

    26. I did not enjoy this as much as Jimmy but it was worth the read. If you are looking for something that is suspenseful, this is not it. But if you don't mind a meandering type story with glimpses of real life, this may do.For me, it would be nice if the innocent were never wrongly accused, people attended church (when they attended) so they would/could be changed and guilt/loss were not so crippling to those who bear it. But then, that would not be real life.Unlike this story, life does not alway [...]

    27. Robert Whitlow does it again Another book they draws you in and shows how God acts on behalf of HIS children! Attorney Mac MacClain and accused killer, Peter Thomason learn throughout the pages of this book that ultimate fulfillment & happiness is not based on length of days on earth or achievements recognized by flesh and blood but through relationship with the One who has redeemed us for eternal communion with Himself!!
