Trial of Injustice
by T.K. Ware
On a Thursday morning in Banker, Alabama the body of a twenty-one year-old woman was discovered murdered. After the police and forensics inspected, with the help of eyewitnesses and fingerprints, the man responsible for the heinous crime was identified as Pastor Thaddeus Ganvis.
Charles 'Esquire' Everson, a man gifted with determination and an avenger of truth, became the most prestigious and sought after lawyer in the state of Alabama, due to his unwavering litigation skills. After finishing another victorious case, he returned to his office. As the day continued, he found himself logging into Facebook, and nearly dropped his phone when he discovered that his former pastor was arrested for first-degree murder.
Without a second thought, he flew to Banker, Alabama to prove the innocence of a godly man. Along the way he discovers the opposition that threatens.
Corruption runs deep in the small town of Banker, Alabama, and with millions of dollars at stake, the pastor of a small church is about to take the fall for adultery and murder.
Charles Everson takes a case to save his old pastor, Thaddeus Ganvis, who seems to have been framed for adultery and murder. The more he digs, however, the more threads unravel in the small town of Banker Alabama and its corrupt legal system and police force. Through veiled threats, vandalism, kidnapping and attempted murder, Charles continues to uncover the truth, but as he does, he begins to wonder just how innocent his client actually is.
PG - This book has a lot of suspense, kidnapping, and vehicular attacks that hospitalize victims. Beatings, hatred, and thinly veiled racism run deep in this southern-fried legal thriller. But the violence is not gratuitous or graphic.
G - the language is pretty clean, almost squeaky clean.
PG - The victim is a convicted prostitute, and there's some language to that effect concerning the pastor. The sheriff of the town has been involved in running prostitution rings in the city, or has plans to run one from the city. There is a little bit of interest between some of the main characters, but it's not pursued.
PG - Drug running is mentioned, and is active in the small rural town. One character is given a bottle of crack, and her fingerprints on the bottle are used as a threat. One person is given pills that nearly destroy his mind. Alcohol and alcoholism are mentioned, and some of the characters meet in a bar. Alcohol and drugs are portrayed in a negative light, and one character has recovered from alcoholism.
Quite a bit of it exists in the book. Scripture is quoted in several places, without being forced or seeming 'preachy'. Angels and demons make appearance, unseen and seen, in the book, and prayer is demonstrated as the vehicle for rescuing several people in trouble. The pastor exhibits faith, that wavers between very strong to weak and back. The gospel message is presented to one character. Others revile the faith. There is a lot of good vs. evil and faith vs. unbelief in the book.
The southern city of Banker is depicted well, from an author who has lived in the south and knows its character. It's fading but racism exists in these small southern towns, on all sides of the racial lines. The main characters are pretty believable and the action is intense. The plot, setting, and characters are solid and it makes for a nice legal thriller with high stakes, enduring faith, and fast action. If the reader can look past the editing issues the story is an uplifting page turner. The main character would do well in a series of legal battle novels like this one. Four stars.
