While I absolutely loves his first couple of books, this one fell well short of expectations. *Spoiler Alert* - This book is not a standalone book. It leaves the reader hanging at the end. I bought the next book in the series, and it had nothing to do with this ending. Amazon was kind enough to let me return it even though I read 30 pages into it.
I found that he rushed this book, the courtroom scenes were not realistic, and I felt it was written just to check a box. After the poor ending, I am done reading anything by John Ellsworth. I don't like when authors leaving you hanging, and then don't address it in the next book. To me, it's nothing more than click bait.
