When Ian Wells took over his late father's law office, he wanted to move away from real estate and trust cases and start working on criminal defense cases. He also take care of his mother who suffers from Alzheimer's and is struggling to keep the law practice afloat. A client with a trust case requests his services and offers to pay a hefty fee of two hundred thousand dollars for only a week of work. Ian reluctantly accepts the job because of mounting bills but he soon learns that the case is not as easy as it seems. Why was Ian offered the trust deal? How does the client know Ian's family?
The novel was a quick read with an interesting story line. While, the novel had a few plot twists, the story was very predictable. I felt that the characters were believable and relatable which made me root for them. I also like that the novel moved at a good pace with enough action and suspense in between. A nice read on the subway for fans of legal suspense novels.
