Summary

Inside a prestigious law firm, a rookie lawyer is pulled into a dark maze of lies and violence.

An ambitious Stanford graduate, David Adams has begun a fast-track career at Austin’s most prestigious law firm. It’s a personal victory for the rising superstar - a satisfying reversal from his impoverished and despairing childhood. Now he has the life he’s always wanted: an extravagant salary, a high-rise condo, a luxury SUV, and no limit to how far he can go in the eyes of the top partners.

But after the shocking suicide of a fellow associate - one who, in his final hours, offered David an ominous warning - he feels the pull of powerful forces behind the corporation’s enviable trappings. The suicide leads unexpectedly to David’s discovery of a secret enclave of the city’s homeless, where he can’t help but feel an affinity to these outcast souls. Nor can he ignore the feeling that they hold the key to the truth behind a dark conspiracy.

When one of his new street friends is murdered, David’s clear doubts about his employer start shifting into a dark reality. Now torn between two worlds, David must surrender all that he’s achieved to fight for a larger cause of justice - and become his firm’s most dangerous acquisition.

Intriguing drama touching on important issues

I enjoyed the mixture of cultures represented in the rich lawyer lifestyle vs. the street life. The characters draw you in and I felt myself piecing it together as the mystery unravelled.

I’ve given up

The first few chapters are not particularly engaging, I find the writing clunky. I nearly gave up when the woman came to the door wearing a 'white dress with heels' it took me a moment to realise that SHE was wearing the heels.

When, on their FIRST date, she complains about his car and insists that she take him to a dealership where he can buy a new car, then he agrees to buy a car for $85k I just couldn't go on any further, he is now being taken to a Realtor so that he can get an apartment! All this after the first couple of weeks at a new job, so he really hasn't got job security nor has he any common sense as he has no money in his background, and he is struggling with his first job!

I am at screaming pitch with this book..... I can take no more!

To top it all, the narrator has a very droning monotone, which I could perhaps tolerate if there was anything worth hearing!

Fantastic!

I’m so sorry to have finished this book so soon. I think this book could easily have been a little longer with a little more detail, actions and reactions to the various situations. The is also a dark secret that is getting people killed. You don’t get to find out what that is until the end which is a good thing but some of the murders associated with it are only mentioned rather then detailed.
All in all I thought this was a wonderful story. It felt to me like there was a little bit of Grisham’s influence and parts that reminded me of THE FIRM.
Christopher Ryan Grant does a great job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

A very special novel!!

Audible' return policy removes all financial risk from purchasing an audio book. AN EQUAL JUSTICE is a novel that everyone should listen to. As Audible listener Shelley indicates in her review this book ends to quickly; it is too short! But the story is one the reader/listener will not soon forget. Just get AN EQUAL JUSTICE!

A whirlwind start for a fledgling attorney

David Adams gets his dream job and that will give him all the things and perks he's hoped to attain but he also gets more than he bargained for. A series of curious events will pull him into the underbelly of Austin and have him questioning everything he thought he wanted out of life. I love short chapters that keep me listening well beyond the point I intended to stop. Will look for the next in the series!
Grant's narration, although a bit straight forward, was fine for this book.

Good story

Refreshing to read and listen to a good story. Makes you think about the 2 worlds if rich and poor. Wish this book had a book 2.

Soapbox

Story wasn’t bad but I don’t enjoy a writer with social issues. Won’t be listening to any more of his books even though legal thrillers are my favorites.

Suspenseful

An entertaining feel good book. That moves quickly through the interconnected stories. Makes you look at homelessness differently.

formula story

This book seemed like it was rally going to be good. It turned out to be a John Grisham rip-off, and not a very good one.

It touched my heart

I loved this book. What I loved even more was the way it touched my heart. The performance was excellent. I was completely unable to guess how the story line twisted and turned. Best of all, the characters were real. I could see them in my minds eye. When at the end I listened to the authors comments and learned that much of the book was actually real, I cried like a baby. The book has inspired me to pay it forward to as many homeless people I can. Read it, you will be glad you did.

A legal page-turner

This fast-paced legal thriller involved me from the beginning, with its overtones of The Firm. I felt compelled to continue listening. I was a little disappointed by the ending, which seemed rushed and a tad far-fetched.
