A Prayer for the Penitent
About the Book
Jeb Johnston is a successful trial attorney practicing in St. Anselm Parish, Louisiana. He has a weakness for the downtrodden and those abused by the powers-that-be. His old school southern sense of chivalry compels him to look into a New Orleans halfway house when one of its residents sends him a call for help.
She and the other women of the halfway house are being abused by the legal system and other influential donors and members of New Orleans society. Upon further investigation of corruption, Jeb becomes tangled in a web of sex and scandal. He uncovers secrets that the operators and board of directors want to remain hidden at any cost, even murder.
In this case, the powerful prey upon the weak, often in the guise of religion. Jeb fights to reveal the exploitation of the so-called religious charitable community, as threats rain down around him. The faithless façade of organized religion is exploiting the weak and innocent, and Jeb will do anything to save these women from further attack.
