Book Review: Beyond Justice by Joshua Graham

Title:  Beyond Justice
Author: Joshua Graham
Publisher: Dawn Treader Press
Published: April 27, 2010
ISBN: 978-0984452606

Summary:   "Sam Hudson, a reputable San Diego attorney, learns this when the authorities wrongfully convict him of the brutal rape and murder of his wife and daughter, and sends him to death row. There he awaits execution by lethal injection.  If he survives that long.

In prison, Sam fights for his life while his attorney works frantically on his appeal. It is then that he embraces the faith of his departed wife and begins to manifest supernatural abilities. Abilities which help him save lives– his own, those of his unlikely allies–and uncover the true killer’s identity, unlocking the door to his exoneration."

I only had to read 7 words and I instantly knew this was the book for me.  All I had to read to was San Diego attorney.  I stopped reading and replied (I got the review offer in an email or Facebook message- I can't remember which) that I most certainly wanted to review Beyond Justice!!!!!  I love all things law and as you know (maybe) I am a native San Diegan!!!!!!!  Lucky for me, this turned out to be the BEST (yes you read right) Best book I have read and reviewed this year.

Sam comes home from work to find his wife brutally stabbed, with her last dying breath (literally) she tells him to go check on the kids.  He finds his 4 year old son beaten with a baseball bat and his teenage daughter dead.  And then if that wasn't bad enough, he is the only suspect in their deaths.

However this book isn't just about law and criminal justice, it is about faith and realizing that everything happens for a reason.  While trying to get his conviction overturned and to get released from prison, Sam finds God and discovers how his faith can help him through these incredibly dark and trying times.  I really liked that this discovery takes years and is not one of those "overnight" Death Row conversions.  It is a real and believable sequence of events.  I HIGHLY recommend Beyond Justice as a must read!!
