The 24-hour news cycle is abuzz when the police arrest homeless Iraq war veteran Mike Stoller for the murder of a young paralegal on her way home from night-school class. Stoller doesn't deny killing the woman, but his post-traumatic stress disorder is so bad that he has no real memory of that night. Jason Kolarich agrees to take the case only weeks before trial, and realizes that, unlikely as it seems, his client is probably innocent. The murdered paralegal had been tracing a money trail leading to terrorists.

Where does The Wrong Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Better than the Lincoln Lawyer. Powerful business men, FBI, ex-marine, sarcastic lawyer, mafia and controlling unforgiving judge

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jason was my favorite. Sarcastic, funny and never gives up. Works the angles. Great at cross examination.

What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

When he landed Jason onto his back in the cell

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

When all odds are are against you

Any additional comments?

I really feel this would make an entertaining movie in it's entirety. But those making movies seem to cut out parts. Nice ending I didn't see coming.
