I enjoyed this book. This is the story about a murder that happened 20 years ago and Dr. Weber is now on trial for this murder. The interesting thing about this plot is that the man that he murdered was a friend of his and Dr. Weber was having an affair with Pete's wife. Ultimately Dr. Weber (Ben) and Karen got married.

Karen's daughter's Lin and Laura are confused between fact and fiction. Their emotions are torn between wanting to believe their 'dad' is innocent to feeling that his story just doesn't add up. I did find myself getting a little confused during the trial because the writing was of the words that were being spoken and sometimes thoughts of the person hearing them.

All in all I enjoyed the book even with the little undertones of religion. I felt that the religion part was well placed and brought up. People that have a strong faith prior to something traumatic happening begin to question their faith in God. The ending was okay but not what I was really expecting.
