A House Divided

Robert Whitlow

$19.99

Paperback
:

A father's mistakes nearly cost his children everything. Now his children must unite to take on the most important case of their respective careers.

Corbin Gage is slowly drinking himself into the grave while running a small law practice in a small Georgia town. The assistant DA in the same community is his son Ray, poised for a professional breakthrough based on a job offer to work for the best law firm in the area. Roxy is Corbin's daughter, a rising star associate in Atlanta for an international law firm that specializes in high stakes, multi-million-dollar litigation.

Against the advice of everyone in his life, Corbin Gage takes on a toxic tort case on behalf of three boys who have contracted non-Hodgkin's lymphoma due to an alleged chemical exposure. The defendant, a herbicide/pesticide/fertilizer company, is the largest employer in the area. Because of the lawsuit, Ray's job offer evaporates, forcing him to go to work with his father. Roxy's expertise in complex litigation draws her into the drama.

As their investigation uncovers an audacious conspiracy to conceal dangers to their community, Corbin, Ray, and Roxy come to a personal treaty in their pursuit of justice. But they soon discover that burying a problem can have explosive results.

Emotional
3 stars By Harsh , Oct 21 2015
This is a challenging book to read because the characters are all broken with a severe character flaw. However the author creates great empathy that draws you in and makes you think. You get the great plot around a trial for health, as well as see the transformation of hearts. Well worth the read

Breaking boundaries
4 stars By Bri, Oct 14 2015
Robert really brought the characters alive and created realistic believable characters. They had flaws and the flaws were consistent with no quick fix which helped it retain integrity 
He created empathy that had me fighting tears and then getting angry at the characters throughout the book as well as enjoying their joy 

If you enjoy law and suspense you will enjoy this book
