Synopsis:THE DESCENT INTO HELL IS NOT ALWAYS VERTICAL... Sam Hudson, a reputable San Diego attorney, learns this when the authorities wrongfully convict him of the brutal rape and murder of his wife and daughter, and sends him to death row. There he awaits execution by lethal injection. If he survives that long. In prison, Sam fights for his life while his attorney works frantically on his appeal. It is then that he embraces the faith of his departed wife and begins to manifest supernatural abilities. Abilities which help him save lives- his own, those of his unlikely allies-and uncover the true killer's identity, unlocking the door to his exoneration. Now a free man, Sam's newfound faith confronts him with the most insurmountable challenge yet. A challenge beyond vengeance, beyond rage, beyond anything Sam believes himself capable of: to forgive the very man who murdered his family, according to his faith. But this endeavor reveals darker secrets than either Sam or the killer could ever have imagined. Secrets that hurtle them into a fateful collision course. BEYOND JUSTICE, a tale of loss, redemption, and the power of faith. "...A riveting legal thriller.... breaking new ground with a vengeance... demonically entertaining and surprisingly inspiring."

I just finished reading Beyond Justice. I was unable to put it down until I finished it, I was hooked from the first page. I had to wait a little while to write this review because I was moved to tears throughout the book but even more so at the end. The story is a scary one, to think that this probably happens more than we want to believe. The character, Sam Hudson is one I wished I could meet. The author Joshua Graham has a new fan. I give this book a 5/5. I was given this by by Partners in Crime Publishing and all opinions are my own.
