Michael Andrew's A Trial of Innocents (America House; 268 pages; $17.95) is a courtroom suspense thriller that addressed the most controversial issue of our day-Partial Birth Abortion. While trapping the reader in a mesmerizing plot, Andrew exposes the crumbling foundation of Pro-Abortion ideology. He has at once produced an exciting novel and a non-combative weapon in sharing the sanctity of life message with friends and family in the Pro-Choice camp.

       There is a central, grisly mystery set forth in the book's opening pages. A savage attack leaves one woman clinging to life, her unborn child dead, and a peaceful Ohio Valley community crying for vengeance. Archie Kisner, seemingly caught in the act, will face the death penalty in spite of his mental handicaps.

       The prosecutor, Lori Franks, will stop at nothing in her relentless pursuit of a conviction. However, seeking the death penalty against a man who killed an unborn baby dredges up painful memories of her own partial-birth abortion. While attempting to put her haunting past to rest, she sues to regain custody of the child she once sought to abort.

       Danial Solomon is the defense attorney wrangled into defending a man who was seemingly caught in the act. He locks horns with Franks on two fronts, as he also represents the family who has custody of Franks' little girl. Danial's investigation into these cases lead him into a tangled rat's nest of conspiracy reaching deep into the upper tiers of government.

       A Trial of Innocents races from the life-and-death decision of the operating room to the tension-packed fireworks of a murder trial; it combines nail-biting tension, wrenching suspense, and unadulterated excitement with a smidgen of humor and romance. This book will leave you exhilarated and shaken, but above all it will make you think.
