CHRISTIAN MYSTERY I SUSPENSE I LEGAL I SMALL TOWN & RURAL
Someone stands to gain millions of dollars from a hunter’s accidental death . . . unless that death wasn’t an accident.
Matt and Elena Thompson present the picture of perfection. But their enviable life isn’t all it seems. Their marriage is on the rocks, and financial disaster looms. Then Matt is killed in a hunting accident, and the questions and accusations begin to mount.
Attorney Liz Acosta, newly arrived in the mountains of north Georgia after graduating from law school, plans to get some job experience on her resume before returning home to seek a position with a big-time firm. Intellectual pastor Connor Grantham isn’t sure that shepherding a rural congregation is what he ultimately wants to do with his life. Drawn to philosophy, theology, and nature, he’s beginning to feel more at home in north Georgia—especially after he meets the brilliant and energetic Liz.
While Liz and Connor spend more time with each other and discover just how compatible two people from wildly different backgrounds can be, they’re also being drawn into the shadowy world of Matt and Elena Thompson. As the couple’s marriage counselor, Connor finds himself in the middle of their explosive arguments. As Elena’s attorney, Liz is caught in the tailspin created by Matt’s death.
Together, Connor and Liz attempt to solve the mystery of what really happened to Matt. If his death is ruled an accident, then the double indemnity clause in his life insurance would go into effect, essentially doubling the payout. But as Liz sorts through the legal paperwork of who stands to gain an immense sum of money from Matt’s death, Connor is accused of the unthinkable with much more at stake than millions of dollars.

“Double Indemnity is another winner from Robert Whitlow, one of my favorite authors. The taut suspense builds until the likable pastor is falsely accused of murder, and his new girlfriend, an attorney, has to solve the case. Highly recommended!”
—Colleen Coble, USA TODAY bestselling author of The View from Rainshadow Bay and the Annie Pederson series
"This is an intriguing, fast-paced story of friendships and faith. There are many twists and turns and unexpected surprises. The characters are truly amazing, and I felt as though I was going through their challenges right along with them."
