9781849822152: Thin Difference

Hollon is known for his great versatility as a writer and his third novel is no exception. Having covered themes of an incarcerated man and a resident of a nursing home in his previous novels, A Thin Difference focuses on a trial lawyer, something close to home for the author, whose day job is one in the same. Commenting on his daytime profession, Hollon states, ?I deal with people immersed in crisis. Divorces, child custody proceedings, criminal cases. These people face the loss of their liberty, the loss of their children, and sometimes the loss of their very lives. I learn something new everyday about human beings.? In this new novel, Hollon draws on his experience as a lawyer, delving into the darker side of human nature and the legal system telling how sometimes the grinding cogs of the law can accidentally reach the correct result. A Thin Difference is a legal thriller with a twist, where we learn that everyone has to pay for their sins?eventually.

About the Author:

Frank Turner Hollon is the author of The God File and The Pains of April. His short story "Left Behind" was included in Stories from the Blue Moon Cafe: Anthology of Southern Writers. His novels have been selected by BookSense 76 and Barnes & Noble’s Discover Great New Writers program. He lives with his wife and family in Baldwin County, Alabama, where he continues to practice law.

From Publishers Weekly:

Hollon's previous novel, The God File, looked at the justice system from inside, telling the story of a man who spent his life sentence in prison looking for evidence of God's existence. Justice and redemption are again a theme in this third novel, a more familiar but still compelling legal thriller. Jack Skinner is a down-on-his-luck defense attorney on the Alabama gulf coast, months behind in paying salary to his devoted secretary, Rose, and dodging creditors at each street corner. Jack's finances aren't his only mess; his younger daughter, Kelly, is a drug addict, and his older daughter, Becky, blames Jack for Kelly's troubled life. When Brad Caine offers Jack a $5,000 retainer to arrange a liquor license for the sports bar he plans to open, Jack figures he's found an easy way to keep himself in whiskey for a few months. Days after meeting Jack, Brad is arrested for the robbery and murder of an elderly homeowner; Jack welcomes the ensuing high-profile case as a way to rescue his professional life and, along the way, find something to believe in. Jack's type is a staple of courtroom dramas and police noir, but Hollon gives his man a straight-shooting voice and convincing world-weariness: "My first wife took the children. My second wife took the money." Though the murder trial is obviously contrived to force Jack into a confrontation with his demons, even veteran readers of legal dramas will be surprised by how it all plays out.
