ABOUT THE BOOK
Erin Larson is running out of options. In the wake of her father's death, she found a slim piece of paper--a deposit slip--with an unbelievable amount on it. Only the bank claims they have no record of the money, and trying to hire a lawyer has brought only intimidation and threats. Erin's last chance is Jared Neaton.
How Far Will One Lawyer Go to Find the Money?
When Jared wearied of the shady ethics of his big law firm and started his own, he never expected the wheels to fly off so quickly. One big loss has pushed him to the brink, and it's all he can do to scrape by.
And How Far Will Someone Go to Stop Him?
He's not sure if Erin's case is worth the risk, but if the money is real, all his problems could vanish. When digging deeper unleashes something far more dangerous than just threats, both Jared and Erin must decide the cost they're willing to pay to discover the truth.

Todd M. Johnson writes like a seasoned author, it was hard to believe this is his debut novel. The Deposit Slip is a gripping suspense/legal thriller that pulled me in from the very first pages. It left me so many questions that I could not wait to find the answers to. This was the great kind of suspense books because it was hard to figure out till the end, its not fun to guess the ending by the middle of the book. This book has so much to offer everyone with its fast paced story and short chapters. I am looking forward to more books from Todd M. Johnson in the future.
