"Redemption" by Troy Lambert

Redemption (Samuel Elijah Johnson Series)
by Troy Lambert

What do prison and church have in common? In both places you can learn of your need for redemption. You can even determine to right the wrongs you have done: you can determine to redeem yourself. However, true Redemption is not found inside the walls of a church or a prison. Sometimes you have to go farther and do more to find it than you ever imagined.
Redemption is a dark psychological thriller that tells the story of an ex-con turned attorney, an insane man with a secret addiction, and a marriage spoiled by poor choices.
Samuel Elijah Johnson seeks to overcome his past by educating himself in prison. He graduates law school but has no clue what to do next until a fellow prisoner plants an idea in his mind.
Arthur Creed was raised in a strict evangelical church by militantly religious parents. He hides a secret addiction and a secret insanity. His sins come face to face with the rules ingrained into his memory by his parents.
Randy Peterson wants desperately to do the right thing, to be the kind of hero he feels his family deserves. He especially wants to convince his wife’s parents that he’s "good enough" for their daughter.
Things spin out of control. Their worlds all collide with a monumental crash. In the end, can any of them find Redemption?

Author Troy Lambert outdoes himself in this dark, psychological twister of lives intertwined with self-need, self-greed, and self-loathing; lives on an inevitable collision course with each other. While Sam, the prison Con turned Attorney, tries to emerge from the dark abyss that has been his prison world, three other lives submerge themselves into the hellish recesses of broken commandments!...A roller coaster of emotions! Author Troy Lambert keeps you on the edge of your seat searching word for word every twist and turn of events just to see how the word 'redemption' could possibly fit a bunch of dark, misguided souls. Excellent, Well Written, and hard to walk away from without feeling a little need for 'redemption' yourself! Highly Recommend!
