Three weeks after his twenty-third birthday, Ethan missed the chance to save his brother’s life when he was murdered on the steps of the courthouse in Jacksonville, Florida. Ever since that fateful day, Ethan has sensed a deep disconnect between the man he should have been and the one he has become. His days play out a beat too slow, his mind replaying the scene of his failure again and again.
But when his brother’s widow appears, asking for his help in uncovering what was really behind his brother’s death, Ethan is stunned to hear that she and her late husband were involved in a much larger case than he knew–one that threatens the global power structure. As Ethan joins the search for answers, he will enter into his own past–and discover a means of redeeming his future.
Bestselling and award-winning author Davis Bunn invites you into a world of intrigue as a man held captive by his failure learns how to move forward with hope.
Burden of Proof by Davis Bunn is a tear jerker. The emotional rollercoaster ride was epic. My heart broke for the characters. Sadness swept over me like a tidal wave. A brother has tough lessons to learn. He does change and the transformation is beautiful. I was intrigued. This whole novel made me think what happened, how it came about and why did one man feel so burdened from it. So many questions…the tale was worth following. Ethan has a lot of weight on his shoulders as the guilt tears at him. Then, to add to that, his brother’s widow asks him to find out the truth. It’s difficult to not love the cast that Davis Bunn has so masterfully created.
