In The Case Against William, a football superstar (William) is being accused of murder. He is an amazing talent with a super sized ego, and being accused of rape and murder just doesn't fit into his game plan.
Enter William's father, Frank. I am actually getting a little tired of lawyers who get lost in alcohol and/or depression, but a dad trying to reclaim his career by defending his son is a slightly different twist. Frank's downfall came when he handled a case similar to his son's, so he has many reasons to get his act together and win this case. He is a likable character, and his friends add a bit of spice to the story.
Mark Gimenez always writes books that keep us wondering. While a few points in this book seemed easier to figure out than usual, on the whole this book was still quite exciting with a typically great ending. For legal thriller fans, this is a definite win.
