Like any other Davis Bunn book, I loved it!! He never disappoints me.

The Great Divide

summary

When attorney Marcus Glenwood resigns from a prestigious corporate law firm to retreat to a small town in North Carolina and rebuild his life after a devastating personal tragedy, he suddenly finds himself in the biggest and most emotionally difficult case of his career.
Fragile and spiritually wounded, Glenwood is introduced to Alma and Austin Hall, whose daughter Gloria has disappeared in China while investigating the slave-like practices of New Horizons, the world’s largest manufacturer of sports shoes and athletic gear. Persuaded by Alma’s pleading, and their obvious distress, Marcus accepts the case.

No one, including Marcus himself, can believe how quickly his investigation untangles a web of deceit that stretches from Washington , D.C., to Europe and Asia and back to his own North Carolina backyard. With the power to obstruct, manipulate, intimidate, injure, and eliminate, the giant multinational sports company New Horizons has never lost a case. But they underestimate Marcus Glenwood.

Step by cautious step Glenwood moves forward to uncover the horrifying truth about New Horizons, Gloria Hall, and ultimately himself.

my review

This book caught me in the beginning. The story line was amazing and I loved the characters, the courtroom scenes (they were awesome) and how descriptive everything was!
The only thing I would say negative about it was that it got to be a little long, but I still really enjoyed it!!

  1. Lovely post! That book sounds really good! I think Olivia has read it, but I haven’t. 🙂
    Yay for Emerald (I love that name)!!!! *lets off some fireworks and hands around snow-cones* 😉
    I recently finished reading “Where The Wild Rose Blooms” by Lori Wick. It was good, but determining from a scene or two with a married couple, I wouldn’t say boys should read it. Married men, maybe … but I’m not sure! 🙂 The scenes weren’t BAD, but could be awkward to guys. Even I was kind of like, “this is weird!” 😀 I still liked the book though! It’s the first of Lori Wick’s “Rocky Mountain Series.”
    Yes, I definitely think you should do another giveaway! I love seeing what people giveaway and who wins!!!! 🙂
