Item Description...
Steve Conroy, a lawyer still haunted by the kidnapping of his older brother from a bedroom they shared as children, becomes suspicious when he is hired by a client who knows too much about his brother and his family.

Publishers Description
At the age of five, Steve Conroy saw his seven-year-old brother kidnapped from the very bedroom they shared. His brother was never found. And the guilt of his silence that night has all but destroyed Steve s life. Now thirty years old with a failing law practice, Steve agrees to represent convicted criminal Johnny LaSalle, an arrangement sweetened by a lucrative retainer. It s not long until he discovers that this con man might just be his missing brother. Desperate for his final shot at redemption, Steve will do anything to find the truth. But Johnny knows far more than he s telling, and the secrets he keeps have deadly consequences. Now Steve must depend on an inexperienced law student whose faith seems to be his last chance at redemption from a corrupt world where one wrong move could be his last."

3 1/2 stars  Dec 27, 2009
The Whole Truth was okay. The plot and story idea was very good, and Bell started off with an excellent beginning, but somewhere in the middle it began to drag, and when the ending came, I thought "That's it?" I expected more of a showdown, but there was none.

In summary: Good plot, good story, good usage of words (dialogue was great!); bad pace, disappointing finish. It seems like one of those books where the author had a brilliant story idea, but lacked enough talent to write it brilliantly. Oh well.

This was my first book by Bell, and I may check out another in the future, but I can't say I care much for this one.
The Whole Truth  Feb 6, 2009
As a boy of five, Steve Conroy sees his seven-year-old brother, Robert, kidnapped from the bedroom they shared. His brother is lost and never found. The cacophony of his guilty silence on that night has had a devastating effect on Steve's life. Thirty years later, a recovering crack addict and less-than-professional lawyer, Steve's only hope seems to be Sienna, a young, inexperienced law student, convicted criminal, Johnny LaSalle, and his addiction peer sponsor, Gincy. Steve's search for the truth is thwarted often as he becomes entangled in a deeply layered web of lies and untruths. In this corrupt world, deadly consequences seem inevitable.

The author's stories are exciting to read because he packs in superb action which drives the reader to finish the novel. His law thrillers are top-tier faith fiction. The Whole Truth weaves a scarred childhood with deep seeded regrets and hard choices that don't come easy.

The storyline of The Whole Truth's is driven well by both character and action. The protagonist is strongly developed. It's easy to empathize with his messy life. The "nitty-gritty" of a lawyer's life is detailed, (as opposed to the glamorous). You want him to succeed! Steve has come to the crossroads where's he's trying to do it all by himself, without God, (who he feels doesn't care what has happened in his life). It's not overly preachy but redemption is an integral undercurrent of the story.

There are plenty of surprises in The Whole Truth although the ending was anti-climatic and not what I expected. The conclusion felt abrupt and forced.

I'll continue to read James Scott Bell because he is a superb storyteller by being an excellent wordsmith!

Review by Dale Lewis for TitleTrakk
A page turner of a book  Jan 4, 2009
I enjoy reading about family relationships. This book shows the strong pull of family and- yikes I can't really write what I was about to type here because I don't want to give anything away. But I was deeply moved by this story. With high suspense and high drama this is a real page turner of a book.
Not His Best  Sep 26, 2008
An addicted lawyer struggles to keep clean while life seems to dump on him. He discovers his kidnapped brother is still alive but is on the other side of the law. The characters are not believable; one is a religious fanatic who has a following of young, strong men. He twists things upside down and inside out. It is difficult for me to believe that so many could believe an idiot like this. This novel is filled with metaphors and similes such that it drags. Then as if time is slipping away, it skips quickly to an unrealistic ending, leaving this reader scratching her head. I've read other novels that this author has penned and enjoyed them. This is not his best work.
James Scott Bell's "The Whole Truth"... A Unique Legal Suspense Thriller!  Apr 21, 2008
"The Whole Truth" is yet another fine work of fiction from former trial lawyer James Scott Bell. This one, with the backdrop of a sinister cult hidden away in a barricaded compound, is interesting, suspenseful, and thrilling... woven with several unique twists. The author's legal background adds a compelling authenticity dimension which holds the reader's interest throughout. The novel also underscores Mr. Bell's Christian faith... which perhaps, sadly, is the reason that his and other Zondervan authors' works are bypassed by many, including movie producers who would otherwise find his suspenseful plot structures to be ideal for intriguing screenplays. In any event, "The Whole Truth"--and other James Scott Bell works--are highly recommended by this reader!
