Breach of Trust | [David Ellis]

Breach of Trust

Jason Kolarich has spent the past year struggling to recover from the horrific deaths of his wife and baby daughter. On the night of their deaths, Kolarich was at the office, awaiting a call from a confidential informant named Ernesto Ramirez — a call that never came. Kolarich blames himself not only for the deaths of his wife and child, but for the informant’s murder as well. He can’t bring back his family, but he can find out who killed Ramirez and bring the killer to justice.

Publisher's Summary

Jason Kolarich has spent the past year struggling to recover from the horrific deaths of his wife and baby daughter. On the night of their deaths, Kolarich was at the office, awaiting a call from a confidential informant named Ernesto Ramirez — a call that never came. Kolarich blames himself not only for the deaths of his wife and child, but for the informant’s murder as well. He can’t bring back his family, but he can find out who killed Ramirez and bring the killer to justice.

Unfortunately, Kolarich’s guns-blazing approach to justice lands him smack in the middle of an FBI probe of a deeply corrupt governor and his cronies. To avoid jail, Kolarich must enter a world of wiretaps, double-dealing, and kickbacks, where he soon discovers that the murder of his informant was only the tip of the iceberg. This breach of trust runs up to the highest levels of power, and exposing it may drag Kolarich into the fight of his life.

    "Not worth it"

    Sounds like computer generated voices

    I am disappointed in this series! It's a jumbled mess. Jason is inconsistent in his beliefs, actions, temperament....everything! It feels like 4 books written by the same guy about different guys that happened to be a lawyer at the same firm. Then after they were written the names were changed to Jason and the background shoved down the readers throat. Did I mention a million and one times that his wife and baby daughter were killed in a car accident? Insulting to the intelligence of the reader that its bashed over our head every 15 pages.
    All of the other characters are consistent and I fell like I know and care about those people more than Jason.

    "Excellent Story - Fiction Following Reality"
    What did you love best about Breach of Trust?

    The fact that the premise and situations were so believable. It was a primer for Illinois state-level government, even though it was fictional.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Breach of Trust?

    The scene of Jason in the warehouse was riveting.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    Charlie Cimino.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not really experience any extreme reactions, but the action was constant, so the emotional points were many.

    "C Grade Grisham"

    I'm about 3 hours into this book and it's not very good. The plot is interesting but Ellis is simply not a very talented writer. Dialogues are often ham-handed and his attempts at humor are groan-inducing. Not sure if I will even finish this one.

    "Real Entertainment"

    I read a lot of mystery/thrillers. This book is among the best of the current offerings. It is entertaining, full stop. The narration is excellent. The story line is improbable but one has to suspend disbelief to enjoy this genre. I will read the remainder of the series to see if Ellis can repeat this success.

    "Good courtroom drama"

    I've read three by Ellis now, and have liked them all. They unwind slowly to reveal a complex plot and the courtroom drama is the capstone. So far, I can highly recommend the Ellis books.

    "An unexpected find"

    I downloaded this book, having never heard of the author as an audiobook special. I was very glad I did, I thoroughly enjoyed it, the main character marched to the beat of his own drum and you never knew what he was going to do next, and it was a book that gave a good representation of the shades of grey in people.

    "Good and interesting read."
    Where does Breach of Trust rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I liked it and would purchase another book by David Ellis.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. While there was a lot of reference to case law and government, it was made interesting, and the plot was always moving into different directions.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I like Luke Daniel's performance.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm ready to buy another audio book and would difinitely look at purchasing another book in this series (if there is one), or another book by author and narrator.
