Gods and Fathers by James LePore Review

Matt DeMarco is an unhappy District Attorney in Gods and Fathers by James LePore. His marriage failed years ago, and his only child, Michael, hates him. When Michael is arrested for rape and murder of his girlfriend, Matt jumps in to help Michael prove his innocence. Matt enlists the help of his cop friends and they uncover a plot that involves more then just Michael and his girlfriend. Debra, Michael’s mother, is married to Basil al-Hassan, a political figure in Syria. When Matt uncovers a connection of al-Hassan and the murders, he must find out if it is Basil involved or someone working for him. Can Matt save his son, and does he really want to?

Gods and Fathers is a very intense book. It took me a little bit to get into it, but once I did, I couldn’t put the book down. It is an interesting story involving Syria and the CIA. It was a little difficult to keep up with which character was who, especially at the beginning. There is some sex and quite a bit of violence that would keep me from recommending this book to everyone. I felt James LePore did a great job of giving the characters justice and keeping the suspense through the entire book. It is a short book and a good read!
