After almost 20 years as a college and university president, Sherry Lee Hoppe retired as president from Austin Peay State University (TN) in 2007. Today, she works fulltime writing. A MATTER OF CONSCIENCE: Redemption of a hometown hero, Bobby Hoppe, takes readers inside her husband's historic trial for first-degree murder, giving a glimpse of "the man behind the mask." Man's conscience runs the gamut in the book, from the self-inflicted torture of the protagonist to the twisted ethics of a Baptist preacher who reveals a sacred confidence.

Bizarre, sometimes terrifying thriller that ranges from family values to psychosis. So far out that it wasn't a "page turner" for me, but it was still a thought-provoking story that was well-paced.

The worst James Patterson book I have read. I usually find his stories intriguing, but this one was not only without merit--it was crazy. The story line is not believable, and I wonder if Patterson let his co-writer develop it without being fully inv ...more
