The only thing more interesting than Mr. Ellsworth’s established character, Michael Gresham, is sharing the “birth” of a new character to hang out with Gresham. After reading Annie’s Verdict it becomes clear Mr. Ellsworth has taken my reading pleasure up 2 notches.
Readers have the opportunity to share establishment of lawyer practice boundaries. Many legal procedural books simply state direction characters take upfront. Not here! Ellsworth lays out the moral and legal conflict Gresham is faced with. Notch #1.
Notch #2 revolves around Annie’s introduction. Ellsworth designs Annie’s complex background story uncovering skills beyond character expectations.
I am looking forward to more Gresham and Annie encounters. While reading Annie’s Verdict one may not have predicted her skills. We need more information on this topic.
Perhaps Ellsworth will expand not only on the Gresham Annie relations, but tell us more about Annie’s perceived independent education.
