3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it could have been 2 April 2013
By Julia Flyte TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the third book in a series about lawyer Jason Kolarich. I haven't read the others and that didn't affect my enjoyment of this book. It's a solid legal thriller about a lawyer who is defending a homeless man accused of the murder of a young law clerk. The case against the homeless man looks clearcut but as Kolarich starts to investigate, he discovers pieces of evidence that don't add up. Soon it becomes apparent that he and his team are in danger and that both the Mafia and a very nasty group of terrorists don't want him to find out the truth behind the murder.

What I liked about this book is the lead character (also the narrator) who is interesting and engaging. The courtroom scenes also felt more realistic than is usual in this genre. The story unfolded at a good pace for the most part with various twists that kept me guessing.

However in the end I felt that it all got too silly. Our lawyer turns into an action hero who can also out-think the FBI. The final pages should have been "can't-put-the-book-down gripping" but instead they had me rolling my eyes and losing interest.

Overall not a total write off, but not as good as it could have been.

4.0 out of 5 stars page turner 20 July 2012
By Luanne Ollivier TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
David Ellis's latest book - The Wrong Man - is the third featuring recurring character Jason Kolarich.

Kolarich is a defense lawyer, with a penchant for taking on seemingly impossible cases. This time he's asked by the family of homeless Iraq War vet Tom Stoller to defend him against murder charges. It seems hopeless - Tom was found with the victim's personal belongings and the murder weapon in his hand. But Tom can't or won't defend himself - he's suffering from severe PTSD and perhaps other mental illness. It's up to Jason to speak for him.

The opening line of the prologue was written to catch and hold a reader....
"Something bad is going to happen to Kathy Rubinowski tonight." And this reader was captured from first page to last.

As Jason and his team (I liked the supporting cast a lot) dig further, they come up with an alternative scenario - and what they uncover puts a target on Jason's back.

Kolarich is a big, imposing guy with a larger than life personality. The courtroom scenes are interesting and I enjoyed the legal machinations. But Kolarich is not your run of the mill defense attorney. He's out chasing down leads with and without his investigator. I did question his inclusion of a woman he's seeing as part of the team - it just seemed odd. As a lawyer, he skirts the law sometimes and others he outright ignores it - all in the name of protecting his client. He is now sure Tom is innocent. "The rules of ethics in my profession, last I checked, weren't optional. when did I start treating them that way?"

Ellis has crafted a really good thriller, combining courtroom drama, conspiracy and more with the end result being a page turner of a read. The plot was a little far fetched in places and I saw the end coming, but I enjoyed the ride. Ellis has the thriller format down pat - lots of action, danger and a compelling plot. I'll definitely be picking up the next in the series

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 28 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very good read. A real page-turner from start to finish. I loved David Ellis's sense of humour and I actually enjoyed his character's crime detecting every bit as much as that of the likes of Lincoln Rhyme. I would recommend this book to all readers.
