Besides capturing the pace and feel of a small Southern town perfectly, Brown peoples it with well-developed characters. Readers will look forward to Theo’s further adventures. —BookLife, Publisher’s Weekly
Theo and Liddy are finally sinking deep roots into their new hometown.

Life appears to be settling down, but ominous visit from the town’s past portends more tragedy for little old Shiloh.
“Brew up a pitcher of sweet tea and settle into your most comfortable chair. You won’t want to put T. M. Brown’s latest book down… Testament offers more wrinkles than linen pants on a hot southern day.” — LINDA PIFER, author, Ohio Girl and Windows
WHEN THEO AND LIDDY retired to the small Georgia town of Shiloh, they expected a quieter life, but then Theo became the investigative reporter for the local Sentinel and discovered that small towns can be just as dangerous as big cities for people devoted to seeking the truth. Having narrowly escaped a brush with death, in Purgatory, Theo tackles what he hopes will be an easier investigation: helping the orphaned Pepper trace her murderous mother’s past. But when an armored limousine purchased by Theo’s friend and neighbor Zeb brings another spate of shady characters to Shiloh, Theo finds himself in the middle of another high-pressure plot, building to an explosive conclusion at the town’s Independence Day celebrations.
“Down home country fun at its finest. … Here’s a story that will keep you reading throughout the wee hours.” — JEDWIN SMITH, author of I AM ISRAEL, Our Brother’s Keeper, and Fatal Treasure
