Item description for The List by Robert Whitlow & Rob Lamont...
Overview There is a power in the list. . . Fresh out of law school and full of hope for the future, Renny Jacobson is stunned by his father's sudden death-and then by the terms of the will: the elder Jacobson has left the bulk of his considerable estate to charity. For his only son, he has left nothing more than the contents of a safe deposit box and interest in a company no one has ever heard of-the Covenant List of South Carolina, Ltd. When Renny, in rapid succession, encounters lovely Jo Johnston, meets the members of "The List," and discovers the staggering value of his father's mysterious bequest, his hope is resurrected. But why is Jo, to whom he is deeply attracted, so reluctant for him to claim his rightful share in the windfall? Against Jo's advice, Renny accepts his inheritance and discovers there is more to the Covenant List than meets the eye. "There is a power in the List," Renny's new business partners advise him. "let us show you how to use it for your good." Renny feels the power of the 140-year-old covenant-feels it and wants it for himself. But when his life and Jo's begin to unravel, he is forced to face the truth: the power residing in the List is not a force for good, but for unimaginable evil. . . And nothing short of a miracle will save them from its grasp.

Robert Whitlow has published or released items in the following series...
Five years before the first shot was fired on Fort Sumter, he began warning of the coming conflict. Now, the end of November 1863, the sound of Lee's army retreating from Gettysburg, it didn't require a prophet's vision to see into the future that Judgment was coming. Secret societies sprang up after the Civil War to protect the inheritance and family resources during the turbulent time of reconstruction when carpetbaggers flooded the Southern states. Many were given the lands of others as political debts or favors. If they'd accept and even seek the houses and lands of others, they'd grab the bank accounts as well.
Recently, I was told by a bank guard that a deposit box can be used for anything, not to deceive others but to secure the family some kind of future no one else can get. It was one such deposit box which insured his place in that corrupt List. It was 140 years old, and his place in this secret organization call the Covenant of SC Ltd. was all that he received from his father's Will. He was appalled by the greed and corruption he saw at the meetings, and eventually led the government to the secret meetings.
This happened to the Jacobson family who had lost a fortune to the group when the elder died and left his estate to the Covenant, listed as charity.
Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Five years before the first shot was fired on Fort Sumter, he began warning of the coming conflict. Now, the end of November 1863, the sound of Lee's army retreating from Gettysburg, it didn't require a prophet's vision to see into the future. Judgment was coming.
At the death of Mr. Jacobson, his son was left a place on a secret organization instead of the estate or money coming to him, all that went to a charity called Covent List of South Carolina Ltd. That is the "seat" he received from the father's will. For a while, he had been cruelly deceived by evil men who managed the List. He discovered that this secret group was worse than any such organization founded after the Civil War by degenerates who would not accept the fact that the Confederates were forced to desert the rights. Some did not accept the failure.
Secretly, they accumulated the estates of like-minded Southerners, defying the law of the United States of America, and these groups made families destitute. This 140-yr-old Covenant of greed was a deception and against the law of the land. It happened to the Jacobson family who lost a fortune to the group when the elder died and left his estate. Many such secret societies sprang up after the Civil War to protect the inheritance and family resources during the turbulent time of reconstruction when carpetbaggers flooded the Southern states. Many were given the lands of others as political debts or favors. If they'd accept and even seek the houses and lands of others, they'd grab the bank accounts as well. I was told by a bank guard that a deposit box can be used to secure anything, not to deceive others but to secure the family some kind of future no one else can get.
It was one such deposit box which insured his place in that corrupt List. But he was appallled by the greed and corruption he saw, and eventually led the feds to the secret meeting place. Justice served.
Very good! May 20, 2008
Renny Jacobson is a newly graduated lawyer. His father, who he never had a good relationship with, has recently passed away. In the will, Renny finds that he's not getting the money he expected but rather a position in a secret group called The Covenant List. On his trip back home to find out more about the list, he meets a young lady who has also just received a similar inheritance from her estranged father. His new friend has a strong faith and does not miss the spiritual connection within the group. This book chronicles Renny's journey with the group and the battles, both physical and spiritual, for his attention and his soul.
I couldn't put this book down and ended up reading it all in one day. As it's not a short book, I got nothing else done that day. Well worth the time spent!
The List Mar 23, 2008
The List is an excellent book. I shared my copy with a friend. By the time I got it back she had loaned it to several other people. They all loved the book. I would like to view the movie when it is made available. However, I do not believe it could be nearly as exciting as the book.
Not at all what I expected Feb 9, 2008
I bought this book thinking I was buying a supernatural thriller, perhaps with elements of horror thrown in, and if I was lucky, there would be some interesting legal footwork as well.
I got almost none of this. What I got was a piece of Christian literature, and I am not commenting on the value of this, but it simply wasn't what I was expecting. To add to this general disappointment, the writing was weak, the characterisations poor, even the grand romance didn't have any ring of truth.
Quite simply, it was a disappointing read, and by the end I barely cared what had happened to any of the characters.
THE LIST by Robert Whitlow Jun 8, 2007
My husband and I LOVE this audiobook! We have listened to it TWICE on extended auto trips--and probably will listen again another year. We wonder that it hasn't been picked up for a movie--it would be GREAT! There is great characterization, wonderful suspense in a very plausible plot--which is overall uplifting and heartwarming. Rob Lamont does a superb job of narration.
