Runaway Justice is the third book in the Attorney David Adams series. It is a stand-alone story, so there is no need to read the first two books. However, I think most people will enjoy this book better if they had read the prior installments.
In this book, Attorney David Adams is thrust into the life of a runaway teenager. The teen was arrested on a petty theft issue, but David quickly finds out the boy might be witness to a murder. However, some in Law Enforcement seem to think the boy actually is the killer. With a hitman after them and the FBI insistent on an arrest, David is in a race to protect the boy.
I am enjoying this series of legal thrillers. Each book has been a good page-turner. I think one aspect that has drawn me in the most is the fact that Attorney David Adams is not a high-priced lawyer. He is working for the underdogs, mostly the homeless people of his city. His clients are not uber-rich who are paying the lawyer to fight for them. Adams is out doing what he does as a personal mission.
A great addition to this book was a private investigator. At first, she is being forced to help David but soon she seems to want to help for her own reasons. I am sure that over the next few books the sexual tension set up in this book could become key points to the subplots.
Overall if you are looking for a legal thriller that is not filled with stuffy courtroom scenes this is worth looking at. Pick up your copy of Runaway Justice on Amazon.
