While hiking in the mountains, Baxter Richardson falls off a cliff, and his life is soon hanging by a thread with medical life support the only thing keeping him alive. A battle soon ensues between his wife and his father about whether he should be taken off the life support, and each has their own motivation to see their wishes played out. Attorney Alexia Lindale is brought into the mix and has to sort out the facts for herself, to fight for the truth in a case where everything is not as it seems.
Life Support was a highly enjoyable read, and will definitely hook any reader who enjoys legal thrillers. I first read this novel when it came out in 2003, and I am glad the publisher has chosen to re-release this well-written book as I loved it just as much the second time around. The book is difficult to put down, and provides a fascinating glimpse into the character’s lives. Alex's spiritual journey is well-developed and believable, and Whitlow often portrays his character's interaction with the spiritual realm in a manner I find riveting. I give this book a solid recommendation of 4 out of 5 stars.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
