Featured Book: My Brother's Keeper by A. J. Farris

About the book:

Imagine for one second that you had to take the life of someone else under the direst circumstances—a game of high stakes poker that came down to being killed or being a killer. You claimed it was a matter of self-defense, but the police didn’t believe you. What would you do? How would you feel? That’s exactly what Morgan Sheldon’s problem is. He’s a successful author, a devoted husband, a loving father, and a murder suspect. The two homicide detectives who are questioning him aren’t buying his claims of self-defense. And with only Morgan’s distorted account of what happened, who can blame them? To find out what really transpired on the vacant lot under the darkness of that cold, January night, a lifelong journey has to be taken back to where it all began: the night he was born. Through the unraveling of key moments in Morgan’s life that include when he first discovers true love, his passion for writing, and his role as his brother’s keeper; the past and present eventually merge and the truth about the self-defense killing—or the cold-blooded murder—is ultimately revealed.
