Custody of the State

This is the 2nd book in the series and I have been hooked since Book 1. I am beginning book 3 momentarily. I first read a book by Craig Parshall that he co-wrote with one of my favorite authors Tim Lahaye. This series has you caught up within the first chapter and you don’t want to quit listening. Craig Parshall has now been added to my list of favorite authors. His storylines are relative to things going on in our world today. The narration is wonderful, clear and no problem following along. If you want a story that will keep you engaged from beginning till the end start this series. You definitely want to start with Resurrection File first then this one. You won’t be sorry! Now I am on to Book 3☺️

Great Writing!

I loves this book. It's the second in the Chamber of Justice series. This book catches your attention and holds it through to the end. Excellent! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good legal suspense novel.

Believable, and Well Written

Being both a Christian and a legal junkie, I enjoyed the way Craig blended both into a believable story. I also appreciated how he presented the weaknesses of a system designed to protect, when it is abused by those who would twist it for their own ends.
