"...A riveting legal thriller.... breaking new ground with a vengeance... demonically entertaining and surprisingly inspiring."
--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

****
BEYOND JUSTICE
THE DESCENT INTO HELL IS NOT ALWAYS VERTICAL…

Sam Hudson, a reputable San Diego attorney, learns this when the authorities wrongfully convict him of the brutal rape and murder of his wife and daughter, and sends him to death row. There he awaits execution by lethal injection.

If he survives that long.

In prison, Sam fights for his life while his attorney works frantically on his appeal. It is then that he embraces the faith of his departed wife and begins to manifest supernatural abilities. Abilities which help him save lives– his own, those of his unlikely allies–and uncover the true killer’s identity, unlocking the door to his exoneration.

Now a free man, Sam’s newfound faith confronts him with the most insurmountable challenge yet. A challenge beyond vengeance, beyond rage, beyond anything Sam believes himself capable of: to forgive the very man who murdered his family, according to his faith. But this endeavor reveals darker secrets than either Sam or the killer could ever have imagined. Secrets that hurtle them into a fateful collision course.

BEYOND JUSTICE, a tale of loss, redemption, and the power of faith.

“…A riveting legal thriller…. breaking new ground with a vengeance… demonically entertaining and surprisingly inspiring.”

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“…hits the ground running…handled by a deft hand.”

Adrian Phoenix, BENEATH THE SKIN (Pocket Books)

“This tense, fast-paced story of outrageous injustice, insidious evil, and looming disaster has everything the savvy reader should expect, and more. [Graham] belongs to a new, emerging wave of writers who dare to color outside conventional lines. And he does so with style!”

Glen Scorgie, THE JOURNEY BACK TO EDEN (Zondervan)

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and Inspiring - Highly Recommended October 27, 2010
Format:Paperback
I will give you fair warning before you pick up Beyond Justice by Joshua Graham - - the next 24 to 48 hours of your life will be utterly consumed by this book.

I can be an intense, all-inclusive reader but it takes a special book to have my unconditional and unwavering attention from page one to the conclusion. Beyond Justice does just that; it draws you in from the first page and literally does not let go of you or your emotions until the rollercoaster conclusion.

Author Joshua Graham has managed quite a feat in writing a powerfully gripping legal thriller, featuring a brutal serial killer, that includes thought provoking views on faith and divine intervention. Neither the brutality of a merciless killer nor the religious overtones are too graphic or overwhelming to upset readers who generally do not prefer genres of either type. The legal aspects are hit upon hard, most especially dealing with a criminal trial and wrongful conviction. Even knowing that central character Sam Hudson would be convicted and imprisoned, my heart remained in my chest while reading of the trial and the horrors awaiting him in prison.

I was absolutely captivated by Mr. Graham's writing, leaving me with a strong emotional connection to Sam and his adopted family of supporters. I liked Sam, I thought him a realistic and endearing character and more importantly, I cared about Sam. I wanted him free and exonerated and I wanted justice for him. To say Sam's story was mesmerizing would be a gross understatement. Sam's story, told through the able pen of Mr. Graham, is inspiring in every aspect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! August 3, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you like legal thrillers, this book is a must read! Beyond Justice begins with a heart racing pace which grips you and pushes you immediately into the story. And WHAT a STORY! Graham's narrative is intelligent, well researched and highly personal. Unlike many legal thrillers, Beyond Justice takes an unexpected twist as Sam Hudson must deal with the devastating aftermath of the horrors he has experienced. The events leading to the conclusion pose many thoughtful and spiritual questions. The ending was not what I wished for or expected. Instead, it turned into something bigger and more powerful than I imagined. A wonderful first novel for this author, and this reader is looking forward to the next!!!!!!

I read the book on some plane flights and was hoping the flights would be extended as I did not want to put it down. Not a cookie cutter Christian book and I found the characters believable. I recommend this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing March 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading the review, I was so excited about reading this book.
I must say that the beginning got me going and I was excited about what was coming next (I love John Grisham books, so maybe I'm accustomed to twisted endings, etc.), but that never came. Instead I got a lot of religious jabber, which was just a little over the top. I'm a religious person, but I do not believe in premonitions and visions from God.

If you do, then you are going to like this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beyond ridiculous August 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The very beginning sounds good, but it quickly deteriorates from the story to religious conversion and visions. Like other reviewers, I also was misled by the comparison to Grisham; I can't find anything that is even similar except for the cover which uses the same setup and font as Grisham books. This book rates as one of the worst I have downloaded. Save your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars beyond ridiculous August 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the first few pages on my Kindle, I thought this was going to be very good read. Boy, was I ever WRONG!!! First, it started out with a little of religious sermon to it and escalated to a full blown bible thumping tirade. Then, if you can some how over look that you have to overcome the ridiculousness of the courtroom and prison drama. Give me a break! It was a total farce. Do not waste your time or money on this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars beyond bad October 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was not a murder mystery! This book was about religion. Not that anything is wrong with that, I wanted to read a murder mystery! It was way to long to get to the point. I feel like I wasted my money and time reading this book. If you want to read about religion, this book is for you. If you want a murder mystery. Don't waste your $3.00 or your time!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much to ignore December 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an edited review. When I first read this book, I was under the impression that it was a new author writing self-published Christian thrillers. For that, I was willing to overlook the problems in the book and focus primarily on the good points. However, having seen how the book is being sold in the market place, as well as other issues, I have changed my view and am writing this review instead:

First, let me say that this book attempts to do two things that I appreciate in Christian literature. First, it attempts to covey the gospel. I appreciate that. Second, it attempts to step outside the cookie cutter, life is wonderful mold most contemporary Christian fiction fits into. Granted, if the author is trying for gritty realism, he is no match for Flannery O'Connor, but for current Christian fiction, he is trying. I'll give him that.

Now the problems.

The Marketing
In all fairness, how a book is sold should not be part of its review, except for in this case, marketing is what Joshua Graham is all about. His "best selling" status is based on the marketing and marketing alone. Thus, it is fair game. It is hard to believe that Joshua Graham is not expecting his book to look like a John Grisham book. The name, the typeface, the cover graphics, etc. All of it mimics John Grisham books. His newest release is being co authored by a "Jack Patterson." One only needs to scan the 1-star reviews to see how well this ploy has worked.

Also, every negative review of this book is immediately marked with a "not helpful" tag. Yes, some keyboard warrior working on behalf of Mr. Graham is making sure that the people who have been mislead, or have serious issues with the book are seen as less helpful.

Question #6
I was glad to see that they obstained and that Rachel was a virgin. Adult virgins are rare but they do exist. There is nothing but people having sex in TV and movies and if they aren't, they want to. And every character is someone who lost their virginity as a teen...if there are ever virgins... Read More

Question about Religious Visions
I have never seen apparitions and not sure how I would react if I did. I do however feel that some verses in the bible do jump out at me, especially about situations that I am going through at the time. I feel that is part of the 'living' word.
