Book Review: Burden of Proof by Davis Bunn

 About the Book

Three weeks after his twenty-third birthday, Ethan missed the chance to save his brother's life when he was murdered on the steps of the courthouse in Jacksonville, Florida. Ever since that fateful day, Ethan has sensed a deep disconnect between the man he should have been and the one he has become. His days play out a beat too slow, his mind replaying the scene of his failure again and again.

But when his brother's widow appears, asking for his help in uncovering what was really behind his brother's death, Ethan is stunned to hear that she and her late husband were involved in a much larger case than he knew--one that threatens the global power structure. As Ethan joins the search for answers, he will enter into his own past--and discover a means of redeeming his future.

Bestselling and award-winning author Davis Bunn invites you into a world of intrigue as a man held captive by his failure learns how to move forward with hope.

My Review

What happens when the improbable becomes reality?  Ethan is given the opportunity to go back in time to correct mistakes he had made, and he threw himself into the task, heart and soul.  Already facing his imminent mortality, he works to save and improve the lives of those he loves.  In that quest, there is a mystery to solve, relationships to redeem, and courtroom drama.

I also loved the character of Ethan's brother, Adrian.  A courtroom attorney, he worked for justice, not just to get even.

Those who are interested in the "what ifs" of time travel will certainly enjoy this book, as well as those who thrive on courtroom drama.  Men and women will enjoy this book.

Author Davis Bunn has penned an excellent stand-alone novel in Burden of Proof, and I recommend it.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Revell, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.
