Defense attorney David Adams has walked away from a high profile career at a massive firm. Now he seems to be making his life harder by taking on a seemingly no win case.
When David’s friend, who happens to be a prosecution attorney is murdered, David does the unlikely. He agrees to defend the suspect, who was caught red-handed at the crime scene. This suspect, a man named Rebel, claims the CIA set him up for this murder.
As David digs into the case he starts to notice people following him. Could Rebel be serious about a CIA plot?
An Unequal Defense was a fun read. While I do enjoy a good legal thriller, sometimes the courtroom scenes can bog the story down. This one was not focused on court. There were very few scenes taking place with legal jargon. The focus was David out trying to find the truth and reacting to how the case unfolded.
Overall the writing was great. A good pace with a few “didn’t see that coming” moments. Which by the end had a outcome that felt right for the story.
