"Gods And Fathers" Review

Matt DeMarco is an accomplished Manhattan attorney with more than his share of emotional baggage. His marriage ended disastrously, his ex-wife has pulled their son away from him, and her remarriage to a hugely successful Arab businessman has created complications for Matt on multiple levels. However, his life shifts from troubled to imperiled when two cops – men he's known for a long time – come into his home and arrest his son as the prime suspect in the murder of the boy's girlfriend. 

Suddenly, the enmity between Matt and his only child is no longer relevant. Matt must do everything he can to clear his son, who he fully believes is innocent. Doing so will require him to quit his job and make enemies of former friends – and it will throw him up against forces he barely knew existed and can only begin to comprehend how to battle.

This is the first time I've read a book by this author, James LePore.

Matt DeMarco has no kind of father-son relationship with his son. Which is kind of sad, since he must do everything he can to clear his son of a murder charge, of which he is clearly innocent. It seems after his divorce, his ex-wife took the son, and married a successful Arab businessman.

Now, Matt is a Manhattan Attorney with a hot temper, which he sometimes has trouble controlling. Case in point; When he was in the Marines, he had a run-in with his foul mouthed Drill Instructor, what happened? It wasn't pretty!

The story has a lot of twists and turns, which kept this reader on the edge of my seat waiting to see where the next turn leads. It was an exciting story right up until the very last sentence. What an ending!! 

For anyone who likes mystery, and international thrillers, this book is for you. Even though it was out of my comfort reading zone, I have to admit it kept me turning pages right to the end.

This book was sent to me by the publisher for an honest review, as part of "Partners In Crime Book Tour."

I liked this book and am awarding it 4****
