The Deposit Slip Book


When Jared Neaton grew tired of the shady ethics of his big law firm and left to go out on his own, he never expected the wheels to fly off so quickly. One big case collapsing on him has pushed him to the brink and it’s all he can do to scrape by. He can’t risk another bad loss.

Erin Larson is running out of options. In the wake of her father’s death, she found a slim piece of paper–a deposit slip–with an unbelievable amount on it. Ten million dollars. Only the bank claims it has no record of the deposit and stonewalls her attempts to find out more. This lawsuit, her last chance, has brought only intimidation and threats. Now she needs to convince Jared to take a risk, to help her because the money is real. And both need to watch their backs as digging deeper unleashes something far more dangerous than just threats.

Publisher's Weekly reviews author Todd M. Johnson


Johnson writes vividly…With an irresistible set-up, suspense, a subtle love triangle, strong dialogue, characters, and a focused plot, Johnson makes a strong first literary case.

I can’t believe this is the author’s first novel! It was very well-written, and easy to read in spite of all of the legal and banking context of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Not only was it an unveiling of the case involving a mystery $10 million dollar deposit, but also a tale of intrigue, murder, theft, and a journey to forgiveness. Expertly written, this novel moves easily from disbelief to full acceptance of the mysterious deposit. Not the type of novel where you can figure out what will happen next – this author was always several steps ahead of the reader. I would like to read whatever he writes next.
