The Sacrifice by Robert Whitlow

Robert Whitlow is on a writing road to nowhere. With releases that have uncreative titles like The List and The Trial, The Sacrifice is the proverbial icing on the proverbial store-bought cake. Long gone are the days of inspirational cliches. The sooner he realizes that, the better.
The plot of The Sacrifice is about white teenage racist accused of a local church shooting. Hero character Scott Ellis is called to the scene to rescue the boy who was apparently caught at the wrong place at the wrong time.
When I read the description of this book, I said to myself "he'd better not let this guy get off innocent". But he did. And what started out to be an original romantic subplot quickly plummeted into mediocrity.
I'm also fed up with his now worn out cliche "He felt wind on his face. He looked and saw that there was no window opened. He smiled." It's time for something different all around.
1.5 stars
