Publisher's Summary

Attorney David Adams is the last hope for an adolescent runaway being targeted by an assassin and sought by the FBI in a breath-catching novel by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of An Unequal Defense.

Having abandoned corporate law, David Adams is now the voice of justice for the city of Austin’s vulnerable outcasts. His new client is Parker Barnes, a trembling twelve-year-old runaway and foster-care poster boy arrested for petty theft. Dealt a rough hand in life, he reminds David of his own childhood. This should be a simple, if heartbreakingly familiar, case. Until the FBI muscles in. 

Parker is also a suspect in the murder of a federal witness. No matter how desperate Parker’s denial, David fears there’s so much more to the kid’s hard-luck story than he’s letting on. Especially when a hit man sends the boy running to the only safe place he knows: the streets.

With both the feds and a killer on Parker’s trail, the hunt is on. Teaming up with a pro bono investigator and utilizing his reliable band of street-savvy friends, David must find Parker first if he’s to save the boy from an undeserved fate. And maybe even save himself.

Heartwarming Story and Great Writing

Another great book by Chad Zunker. In my former job, I was fortunate enough to work with the homeless and those individuals who were formerly homeless. Mr. Zunker's stories helps us really see these persons for the great human beings they are. We as a society just need to give them a chance.

Best of the Bunch... So Far!

I really like the David Adams character. He's a great balance of intelligence, drive, and heart. He's smart but lets his heart rule him sometimes, making him personable and entertaining. He's an overcomer, having worked hard to wrestle free from the struggles of a childhood no one should suffer through. Perhaps my favorite thing about him is that he's able to reevaluate his motives and desires, enabling him to push the "reset" button on his life when his goals and actions are not aligned.

This tightly written thriller has everything I look for in an audiobook. The characters are richly developed, the pacing is superb, and the storyline is rocket-fueled perfection. Narration by Christopher Ryan Grant provides the final spark needed for this story to completely engage the listener. I'm ready for more of David Adams and his band of outcast brothers. This series just gets better with each new addition.

Brilliant!

Just when I begin to think I’m never going to find another captivating audio book I discover this had been released.
A thoroughly enjoyable fast paced, well written book that kept me enthralled to the very end.
I look forward to the next book in the series.
Excellent narration too - I hope Mr Grant will continue to narrate this series.
