Defense attorney Jason Kolarich is back in another edge-of-your-seat thriller . . . and this time he may find himself in over his head, in more ways than one.
James Drinker is a bit of an oddball. A funny-looking, geeky loner, he walks into Jason Kolarich’s office one day with a preemptive concern: two women have recently been murdered, seemingly by the same killer, and Drinker thinks he will be the police’s main suspect. One woman was his ex-girlfriend, he says, and the other was a friend. He’s the only link between the victims and he has no alibi for the night of either murder—surely the police will realize it soon. Believing he’s the target of a frame-up, Drinker hires Kolarich for his defense.
Something about James Drinker seems off from the start, but Kolarich doesn’t give it too much thought. Until another murder occurs. And then another. And as he begins to probe his client’s life and story more closely, it quickly becomes clear that nothing about James Drinker is what it seems . . . and that the target of the frame-up isn’t Drinker, but Kolarich.
Unable to stop a serial killer—and prove his own innocence—without breaking his sworn attorney-client privilege, Jason Kolarich must hunt for the truth about James Drinker, the series of brutal murders, and why he’s been set up to take the fall. The answers will be beyond anything he could have imagined.
Praise for THE WRONG MAN:
"Wise-cracking Jason Kolarich is one to watch, as is his creator. THE WRONG MAN shoots David Ellis up among the titans of legal thrillers. Move over, Grisham. Here comes a formidable challenger for the top spot."—Kate Ayers, bookreporter.com
"[Ellis] brings his legal expertise and insider's knowledge to the crafting of his legal thrillers. [Everything] rings perfectly true."—Booklist starred review
"A gread read. [Ellis] has been writing terrific stories, and "The Wrong Man" is another outstanding effort."—Associated Press
“Like Jeffrey Deaver or Michael Connelly, Ellis is able to take a complicated story, infuse it with some heart and empathy thanks to a very well drawn central character, and keep you guessing until the end of the story. Do yourself a favor, and make Ellis one of your summer beach reading discoveries. You won’t be sorry.”—Robin Agnew, co-owner of Aunt Agatha’s books, for AnnArbor.com
