Sins of Omission is an engaging novel of murder, race, politics, conspiracy, and justice in North Florida — drenched in six-decade-old history, yet as current as today’s headlines.
When his father dies under suspicious circumstances, Alan Rudberg vows to learn who killed him and why local authorities refuse to investigate. His quest unearths a long-forgotten civil rights slaying, a family secret, and a conspiracy reaching into the highest levels of government. Powerful forces gather to halt his investigation, imperiling his career, his marriage, even his life.
Mixing equal portions of truth and fiction, Sins of Omission delves into the dark corners of Jacksonville’s history to serve up an intriguing and satisfying platter of mystery/suspense. James Lewis has written a solid debut novel, and I look forward to reading his next one.

In “Sins of Omission” Jim Lewis spins a well-crafted tale of North Florida, journalism, and criminal and social justice – an area and subjects he knows well. Though his economy of language the descriptive passages, character development, and always subtle but steady dropping of clues add up to an elegant read at just the right pace. One closes “Sins of Omission” hoping for another book from this gifted writer.
