BOOK REVIEW OF THE WEEK: The Whole Truth by James Scott Bell

Can you imagine being 5 years old and watching your 7 year old brother being abducted from your bedroom?  Weeks later,  your brother’s body is found.  That’s the beginning of James Scott Bell’s The Whole Truth.  The novel quickly progresses to adulthood.  The 5 year old is now a struggling lawyer with a client in prison who claims to be his dead brother.  As is true to Bell’s style, there are lots of twists and turns that keep the reader guessing but this journey forces you to focus on the impact of family ties and religious belief.

Of course there’s a love interested and a religious fanatic you will love to hate.  But the real meat of the book is the personal struggle of this young lawyer wanting desperately to have a bond with his brother yet deciding what moral standards to sacrifice to have it.  No fluff, just a good deep read.  Enjoy.
