Summary

Thaddeus Murfee’s life is about to change forever. And there is nothing he can do to stop it.  

Killen Erwin slumps on the other side of the desk, silently waiting for his longtime friend to respond. It’s not a question of whether Thaddeus wants to help, but whether he can. Thad barely survived last week’s savage attack, and for the first time ever, he’s feeling unsure of his abilities in front of a jury. 

Now, Killen’s life has fallen apart: His wife is brazenly sleeping around, he’s facing charges for driving drunk and causing a death, and a special prosecutor is hellbent on destroying him. Will Thaddeus have any strength left to defend a friend? And in the face of such brutality, will he even be able to make a difference? 

The Trial Lawyer is part of the Thaddeus Murfee Legal Thriller Series, which has more than 1.5 million fans and counting, and made John Ellsworth into a household name. If you love pause-resisting thrillers with mystery, clandestine plotting, and a dash of romance, dive into the world of Thaddeus Murfee today! 

USA Today best-selling author John Ellsworth’s books are renowned for their twists and turns and surprise endings. See the politics and internal maneuvering that lurk behind criminal cases and discover how the strongest bonds can grow out of the strangest places.

Good story, predictable.

I have Loved all the Thadeus Murphee series. All have been very interacting. This one however became to off handed and predictable in the end.
