Blog Tour: Review – Gods and Fathers by James LePore



TITLE: Gods and Fathers
AUTHOR: James LePore
PUBLICATION DATE: February 2012
PUBLISHED BY: The Story Plant
PAPERBACK: 261 pages
GENRE: Suspense, Thriller

Description from Back Cover:
Nationally bestselling author James LePore has established a reputation as a writer whose vividly drawn characters and morally complex plots have kept readers up to all hours turning pages. His new novel promises more sleepless nights and more nonstop thrills.

Matt DeMarco is an accomplished Manhattan attorney with more than his share of emotional baggage. His marriage ended disastrously, his ex-wife has pulled their son away from him, and her remarriage to a hugely successful Arab businessman has created complications for Matt on multiple levels. However, his life shifts from troubled to imperiled when two cops – men he’s known for a long time – come into his home and arrest his son as the prime suspect in the murder of the boy’s girlfriend.

Suddenly, the enmity between Matt and his only child is no longer relevant. Matt must do everything he can to clear his son, who he fully believes is innocent. Doing so will require him to quit his job and make enemies of former friends – and it will throw him up against forces he barely knew existed and can only begin to comprehend how to battle.

GODS AND FATHERS is at once a powerful mystery and a provocative international thriller, all of it presented with LePore’s signature fascinating characters placed in dire circumstances where every choice poses new and potentially fatal challenges.

My Opinion:
Gods and Fathers was a great suspense filled novel that you enjoyed and were turning pages as fast as you could. I really enjoyed it. We are taken on a journey of fathers and their sons. Matt who is the father of Micheal who has allegedly killed his girlfriend. Micheal and Matt don’t get along. Matt’s ex-wife Debra is at fault. Matt is a defense attorney and is trying to find out why Micheal is accused of murdering his girlfriend. What a thrilling ride the whole way. Matt is a semi likable character although I never felt like I particularly liked him in the book. I still liked the story. This has some political messages in it. All of which I enjoyed. I felt more for Micheal then any of the characters in the book. I understood why he was mad all the time. Jade – Matt’s ex-girlfriend and becoming girlfriend again spills her secret to Matt on why they broke up and then Matt spills his secret. Matt to me is a hypocrite who I didn’t really care for. In fact I just didn’t like him a lot and felt he need justice himself. I also didn’t like that he felt he should take it upon himself to find and kill who needed killing and with cops who were his friends. I liked the idea of the story and it was really well written, I just didn’t like the characters. I think the author could have created some better main characters. But, because this book could provoke such strong opinions and the author could get me totally involved in his characters and have such a reaction to them. I found his book simply amazing.

I give Gods and Fathers by James LePore 4 of 5 stars.
