“The Deposit Slip” by Todd M. Johnson is a mystery novel that keeps you in suspense throughout the entire book. I found it reminiscent of “The Firm” by Grisham. The reason I say that is because this is the story of a young lawyer, Jared Neaton, a former member of a very prestigious law firm, who takes the case of a young woman who is trying to close her father’s estate. Erin is cleaning out his safety deposit box at the local bank and finds a deposit slip in the amount of $10.3 million dollars. She tries to get the money from the bank, but there is no record of the account number or any record of such a deposit. Each attorney that Erin engages decides to drop her and the case for unknown reasons. Jared is persuaded to take the case by his former mentor at the law firm in return for part of the settlement fee. The more Jared investigates the case, the more strange things happen.
I found this book to be highly entertaining and impossible to put down. Every minute I could spare, I read a few sentences or pages. I HAD to find out what was going on. I assure you that this book will grab and keep your interest throughout. I am looking forward to reading more from Mr. Johnson.
I received a free Kindle copy of this book in return for my honest review from Bethany House Publishers.
