The Witnesses by Robert Whitlow

           Young lawyer Parker House is on the rise—until his grandfather’s mysterious past puts both of their lives in danger. Parker House’s secret inheritance is either his greatest blessing or his worst nightmare.

The Witnesses, follows Parker House as he makes his mark as the newest lawyer in a small North Carolina law firm. As he attempts to navigate the politics of the office and his small town, Parker also begins to discover a surprising ability to see the future. Parker’s grandfather, Frank, has struggled with the repercussions of this same gift over the course of his lifetime, particularly as a result of his wartime experiences in the German army. Together, Parker and Frank must discover the true source of their gift and overcome those who seek to use it for evil.

I enjoyed the story immensely, Whitlow offered a detailed, yet approachable story focused around legal characters and a small-town law office. I enjoyed reading about the interplay between the young lawyer, Parker, and his elderly grandfather, as they share a unique ability to see into the future. The grandfather’s flashback were well written and my only complaint is that the end closed out too soon and loose ends tied to smoothly.

Mr. Whitlow presents an intriguing legal drama that seamlessly integrates Christian themes and multiple time periods. Fans of both contemporary and historical fiction will find themselves fascinated by this unique and fascinating story.
