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.

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.

Interesting story, not nail-biting.

Would you try another book from David Ellis and/or Luke Daniels?

yes- I see some potential.

Would you be willing to try another book from David Ellis? Why or why not?

Yes, his writing is pretty good, but the characters were flat and there was no tension created between them. It was a good enough read to pass the time while traveling though.

Which scene was your favorite?

Don't have one.

Do you think Breach of Trust needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No

Any additional comments?

The political corruption angle wasn't unique in any way and I really did not get attached to any of the characters. It was an OK story, but not over 3 stars for me. The narrator started out pretty good, but I soon found that he was going to sound the same throughout the book, regardless of the situation. His voice did not lend itself to tension, which was sorely missing. Hard to tell if that was because of the writing or if he was a little bored while reading.
