A sudden death tied to a list from the past leads to unimaginable evil.
Fresh out of law school and full of hope for the future, Renny Jacobson is stunned by his father's sudden death--and then by the terms of the will: the elder Jacobson has left the bulk of his estate to charity. For his only son, he has left nothing more than the contents of a deposit box and interest in a company no one has heard of--the Covenant List of South Carolina, Ltd.
When Renny encounters lovely Jo Johnston, meets the members of "The List," and discovers the staggering value of his father's mysterious bequest, his hope is resurrected. But why is Jo, to whom he is deeply attracted, so reluctant for him to claim his rightful share?
Renny feels the supernatural power of the 140-year-old covenant--feels it and wants it for himself. But when his life and Jo's begin to unravel, he is forced to face the truth about "The List." And nothing short of a miracle will save them from its grasp.

The book that launched bestselling author Robert Whitlow's career!
"Fans of John Grisham will find much to like here." —Library Journal review of The Confession
In a world of secrets, where evil has reigned for over a hundred years, the power of an ancient covenant will change the life of one man forever.
As a struggling young attorney fresh out of law school, Renny Jacobson pines for the day he can afford the luxuries of the partners in his Charlotte firm. With news of his father's death and a secret inheritance, Renny's life will surely change forever. But the clandestine society that provides the inheritance soon threatens to change him in more ways than one.
Renny's life, and the life of the woman he loves, depend on supernatural deliverance from the curse of The List.
"My verdict for Robert Whitlow's Chosen People: compelling, realistic and inspiring. Robert combines the intensity of a legal battle against terrorists with a poignant depiction of Israel, with all of its tensions and grandeur." —Randy Singer, bestselling author of Rule of Law
"Whitlow's timely story shines a spotlight on prejudice, race, and the pursuit of justice in a world bent on blind revenge. Fans of Greg Iles's Natchez Burning will find this just as compelling if not more so." —Library Journal, starred review of A Time to Stand
