I am a fan of this character, having read several books featuring him. He is a strong and likable defense attorney who always fights for what he believes is right. In this case he believes that Tom is innocent and actually confessing to horrible events that took place in Iraq. He finds out that Kathy was killed because she found information dealing with terrorists and their money. Now he has to convince everyone else that Tom is disturbed, but he is not guilty.
I love the way Ellis builds his characters. Each new book allows me to visit old friends. He also does an amazing job on court related scenes. These scenes, which can be slow and lengthy in some books, are exciting and interesting in the hands of this talented author. This, the third book in this series, is a book that makes the reader look hard at the dilemma of homeless veterans and the horror of PTSD. If you never got around to reading this book, do yourself a favor and add it to your must read list.
