The Deposit Slip by Todd M. Johnson

Publisher's blurb:
$10,000,000 Is Missing.

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. Only the bank claims they have no record of the money, and trying to hire a lawyer has brought only intimidation and threats. Erin's last chance is Jared Neaton.

How Far Will One Lawyer Go to Find the Money?
When Jared wearied of the shady ethics of his big law firm and started his own, he never expected the wheels to fly off so quickly. One big loss has pushed him to the brink, and it's all he can do to scrape by.

And How Far Will Someone Go to Stop Him?

He's not sure if Erin's case is worth the risk, but if the money is real, all his problems could vanish. When digging deeper unleashes something far more dangerous than just threats, both Jared and Erin must decide the cost they're willing to pay to discover the truth.
My Review: From the summary, I really wanted to read this book. Now I just want that time back. I found this story very disappointing. 
I jumped right in, eager to read it, but found myself having to plod along as the story got wordy & boring. I had to force myself to finish. I didn't like how the story was resolved, I didn't think it answered all the questions. It wasn't clear who (if anyone) was the main character's love interest, and that is never really determined. There will obviously be a 2nd book, because the ending just left you hanging. Sorry not impressed, would not recommend to others.
