The Deposit Slip
Bethany House Publishers (July 1, 2012)

Todd M. Johnson


Todd M. Johnson has practiced as an attorney for over 30 years,

specializing as a trial lawyer.

A graduate of Princeton University and the University of Minnesota

Law School, he also taught for two years as adjunct professor of

International Law and served as a US diplomat in Hong Kong.

The Deposit Slip is his debut novel. He lives outside Minneapolis,

Minnesota, with his wife Cathy, and children Ian and Libby.


$10,000,000 Is Missing.

Erin Larson is running out of options. In the wake of her father's death, she found a slim piece of paper--a deposit slip--with an unbelievable amount on it. Only the bank claims they have no record of the money, and trying to hire a lawyer has brought only intimidation and threats. Erin's last chance is Jared Neaton.

How Far Will One Lawyer Go to Find the Money?

When Jared wearied of the shady ethics of his big law firm and started his own, he never expected the wheels to fly off so quickly. One big loss has pushed him to the brink, and it's all he can do to scrape by.

And How Far Will Someone Go to Stop Him?

He's not sure if Erin's case is worth the risk, but if the money is real, all his problems could vanish. When digging deeper unleashes something far more dangerous than just threats, both Jared and Erin must decide the cost they're willing to pay to discover the truth.

MY REVIEW-As a debut novel, this was pretty good. I received an ARC copy of The Deposit Slip and will be looking for a finished copy:) This is a good suspense novel that I enjoyed. The main character is a lawyer who is tough and yet has some troubles behind him, as well as ahead of him. He is lowly going downhill after a case that didn't pan out and now he is behind on bills, no cases ahead of him and a long road. He is all of a sudden handed a case but things aren't always the way they seem. Lots of good characters and the plot was quite interesting. There was one swear word and another time where it isn't said but implied. Needless to say, your mind automatically fills in the word anyways. Other than that it was pretty good.
