After Erin's father dies she comes across a deposit slip for $10,000,000 but the bank has denied all knowledge so she needs a lawyer to fight for her.

Meanwhile fed up of corporate life Jared sets up his own legal practice with a shoe-string budget. Life is tough and he's just getting by so Erin's case could make all the difference.

To take up the case means returning to his home town, a place he left as soon as possible ashamed of his father's behaviour. The town however is against him as the bank could make things very difficult for everyone so finding people to help the case isn't going to be easy. I really loved the librarian Mrs Huddleston who manages to pour oil on troubled waters on more than one occasion.

The end did seem rather rushed and contrived but that is my only real problem with this book.

With powerful characterisation and courtroom scenes this is a winner especially considering it's a first book. If you're a fan of John Grisham then you will enjoy this book

I liked the central idea of this book but I then found it difficult to get through the next 40 pages or so; I couldn't much relate to the characters or what was happening. There was no continuation of the suspense within the background stuff about the people involved. However my interest in the central idea got me through that and the book became quite a good read and a good page turner. The characters were believable and I got genuinely interested in how the events would turn out. I can recommend The Deposit Slip. I took it with me on a trip to London and read it on-board and at the airport, finishing it at home.

Deposit Slip, The Not my usual read but I am really grateful I got it. I feel it would make a good Film or Mini TV Series. The characters were all believable and the suspense moved along at just the right pace. Very "American", I suppose, with the minnow fighting the sharks and putting up a good fight. A lot of research had gone into this book and the result was well worth it.

No spelling mistakes or typos. Although the deposit slip was about a mysterious bank deposit and not a murder, I still thought it was a page turner. A good debut novel by Todd Johnson worthy of John Grisham. Worth a read!!

HASH(0x97236e4c) out of 5 stars Intriguing Legal Thriller 19 July 2012
By T. K. Mauney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The new book by first-time author Todd Johnson is an awesome legal thriller. An added plus is that it has a great plot and is a clean read. It is so difficult to find interesting novels that are well-written and a clean read. I sure hope Mr. Johnson plans on writing a new book about the new case 'Clay' calls about at the end of this book!

HASH(0x97236ea0) out of 5 stars Good read! 4 July 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As an avid reader, I'm always looking for new authors that I enjoy reading. I will be looking for more books by this author! The main character finds a deposit slip for $10 million in her father's safe deposit box after his death. With a mixture of suspense, relationship complexities and interesting characters, the book kept me involved until the very end.

HASH(0x979e1f54) out of 5 stars Outstanding Mystery 13 July 2012
By Harry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are many writers that attempt to create good mystery novels. Some are successful and some are not.
Author Todd M. Johnson has created a mystery masterpiece.
He weaves a tale of suspense and intrigue that is set in small town Minnesota. The chain of events reaches well beyond those boundaries and captures your attention from the opening chapter.
The Deposit Slip races non-stop from beginning to end through the legal profession, courts and criminal elements.
Not everyone plays by the rules as Jared Neaton and Erin Larson learn. Where is the Ten Million Dollars? That question will be answered as the clues are delivered in a timely manner by the writer.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading "The Deposit Slip" and look forward to future books by Author Todd M. Johnson.
Buy it and read it!

HASH(0x9776d054) out of 5 stars Not really a thriller, but still interesting... 5 May 2013
By Carrie R. Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book opens with Erin Larson settling her father's belongings after his untimely death. While going through a safety deposit box that she didn't know he had, she discovers a deposit slip that states that over 10,000,000 dollars were deposited into an account. Interested in finding out where this money came from and where it was, she starts checking into its whereabouts only to be blocked at every step. She ends up suing the bank that should have the money and life starts to get interesting.

Jared Neaton is a lawyer whose law firm is not doing well financially. Hoping this claim is legitimate he decides to take the case against the wishes of others. When he starts to investigate the claim, things start to get even worse. The pressure is on and he isn't sure why things are heating, but feels that he must have a case if the other side is being so defensive and wanting him and everybody else off the case.

I enjoyed reading this book for the most part. Most of the book, I kept wanting to read and see what would happen next. It seemed to me though that once the book started to wrap up, it wrapped up pretty quickly. When I got to the last page, I turned it to the next page thinking that there was going to be more, but that was all there was to the book. It just seemed pretty abrupt.

Overall, I found myself wanting to know more about what was going on. I wanted the characters to find out what was going on because I wanted to know what was going on. This book is labeled as a legal thriller and while there were some interesting parts it seemed more like a legal mystery rather than a thriller.

I would recommend this book to anyone that likes legal books as I think they would enjoy it if they like that genre.

I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I was under no obligation to give a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

HASH(0x97237384) out of 5 stars High power attorneys take on the little guys in this suspense-filled novel! 10 July 2012
By Pirate2240 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just when things can't possibly get any worse for her, Erin Larson discovers a deposit slip in her father's safe deposit box dated for February 10, 2008, three years earlier before her dad died. It's drawn on Ashley State Bank for the amount of $10.3 million dollars and Erin has no idea where the money is or how her father obtained it.

As she begins to inquire to the whereabouts of the funds through the bank, she is only told that no such deposit was ever made, and there is no account with that number at the bank. Yet what Erin can't figure out is why her father would have kept this deposit slip if it was worthless. As she tries to hire lawyers to represent her and begin to dig into the location of the money, she finds herself on the end of threats, harassing phone calls and even vandalizing of her car. Now she learns that the Paisley Law Firm is handling the case from bank's interest and she doesn't have the funds or even an attorney that seems interested in dealing with a high power law firm.

Until Jared Neaton is called by a former high power attorney by the name of Clay Strong. He advises Jared of the potential this case could do for his own struggling firm and has offered to front him $30,000 of expense money if he'll consider taking the case. Strapped and barely making ends me because of a failed trial that almost left him bankrupt, Jared is trying to keep his head above water since leaving the Paisley law firm where he met and was mentored by Clay.

Without any other proof other than a deposit slip, Jared wonders if this will be a repeat of the previous case he lost or will he be able to find the evidence he needs to go up against some of the best attorneys and possibly win. Things aren't looking too good, but what God uses best in circumstances like this, is when the odds are against us and it looks like we are at a dead end. That's when things begin to look up!

I received the debut novel, The Deposit Slip by Todd M. Johnson compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and literally read this one in a few hours. It's compelling, page turning, edge of your seat, all the way through the book and one you simply will not be able to put down. If you love novels where the high power attorneys are looking to take out the little guy, this is the perfect novel for you. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars for it's exceptional writing and it's ability to keep the reader engaged at a constant pace from beginning to end.
