I don't know why it has taken me until now (2018) to discover David Ellis' first book in series with Jason Kolarich, lawyer, as the main character. I am an avid reader of thrillers, murder, crime and police procedurals, but can't recall ever having read any of Ellis' previous novels. There is always the slim chance I have forgotten having read any of his books written prior to 2009 (that's a joke because the memory sure ain't what it used to be!) It matters not because this book is the first in a series and I was hooked from the first few pages. Excellent writing, interesting and plausible story, characters...this book has everything I anticipate when I dive into a crime novel. Loved it and I'm thankful there are 3 more in this series, the last one written in 2013. I can only hope Ellis has taken a sabbatical from writing about Jason Kolarich, (would Ellis really need 5 years to come up with number 5 in this series?) It would be a real shame if book 4 (The Last Alibi) was the last in the series. Although published in 2009, this book does not feel "dated" and was thoroughly enjoyable!

Really good read. Couldn't put it down. Jason really puts the screws to those that wrong him and those he cares about.

Very good book and easy to read. Found myself wanting to stay up late to finish the book.

This was a very fast read, and I liked the main character however, in spite of never going to the gym that I could see, he is still able to beat the crap out of people, breaking arms and decking men at will. So that was a bit unbelievable. The plot was good - I did not see the ending coming in spite of having all my antennae up (because my sister who recommended this told me she didn't see it coming either). The back-up characters - well, it's hard to say when a book is the first of a series. Is the other lawyer there for a future love interest, or is she there to be a lawyer? Is the brother there to constantly be getting in scrapes, or will he be useful? Will the ex-con best friend be there to get in trouble or to help out with "the street" (a trope that I wish would die a horrible and flaming death)? Thing is, I don't know that I care enough to read any more in the series to find out.

Unknown man hires a lawyer to defend an old friend. Not bad.
