Item description for Jake's Beginning by Chris Pearson...
The Mafia find a place where they want to take over and you don't stand a chance, they pay big money to keep people quiet. Jake Hamel has come a long way from his upbringing in an English orphanage. A successful lawyer in Calgary with a happy and settled life, little does he realize that his refusal to respond to a request for legal aid will change his life beyond recognition. This twisting tale of theft, murder, rape, deceit, betrayal, corruption and wrongful convictions will have you on the edge of your seat willing good to overcome evil. A chance meeting, an orphaned ten-year-old and renewed acquaintances allow Jake to re-examine past events and face his demons, but can he break down the wall of silence surrounding the crimes and the unwillingness of potential witnesses, or is the truth destined to lie buried for ever? Can Jake find justice for all - and in the process, lasting love and happiness for himself?

I enjoyed it. It keeps you guessing until the end. Great book to take on a trip, easy reading and keeps you interested. Alot of twists and turns.
Classy thriller! Nov 6, 2005
I found this book to be very entertaining. It used a great plot to tell the story. I love the mountains! I love mafia stories! and I love thrillers! The author took me into her world and I couldn't put the book down.
