Breach Of Trust" is David Ellis' latest legal thriller and it features Jason Kolarich from "The Hidden Man". Ellis is making a career of writing about and exposing governmental corruption which comes easily from his experiences as a government prosecutor in Chicago. Jason Kolarich is an intriguing character who seems to gain more focus and determination when his family dies in a terrible auto accident. The fact that he was supposed to be driving them at the time but stayed behind to speak to a potential witness, Ernesto Ramirez, who never showed ignites his inner demons and his pursuit of justice, after a period of grief and aimless job shifting.

Jason decides to seek the killer(s) of Ernesto, who he subsequently discovered was killed the same night his family died, as a form of guilt relief both for his not being with his family that tragic night and for possibly setting Ernesto up for death by his relentless pursuit of his testimony. Complicating matters is a zealous federal prosecutor with a vendetta against Jason who forces him reluctantly to go undercover seeking damning evidence of political corruption from the Governor and his myriad underlings. Jason is soon playing dual games--find Ernesto's killer and fulfill his responsibilities as chief governmental "snitch".

How Jason handles these two overlapping assignments while preserving his true purpose and identity is skillfully handled by Ellis whose plot, while confounding and circuitous at times, is nonetheless satisfying in the end. The reader is exposed to a world of back room political crime and shenanigans filled with wiretaps, kickbacks, payoffs, power for sale, and even murder. Aside from Jason, there were few characters who were particularly likeable nor who elicited my concern for their well being. Pacing was a problem for me as the plot moved along at a numbing pace with little action, violence, or suspense to break the monotony of Jason audio-taping evidence and debriefing with the feds, except for one notable violent interrogation. Certainly "Breach Of Trust" reads as more a satisfying methodical procedural than as a suspenseful legal thriller.

For fans of political and govermental corruption novels, "Breach Of Trust" should provide compelling reading. Unfortunately, I never felt the "thriller" part of legal thriller...it was just too slow and methodical for me. There is a mystery (or two) to be solved and there is suspense entwined with Jason's need to protect his identity as a governmental spy; otherwise, I found too little suspense, too little action, and too few thrills.

I read Line of Vision many years ago and enjoyed it. Recently came upon a copy of The Last Alibi and thought it was a really great read, if over long.
So, I ordered two more of David Ellis's novels, one being Breach of Trust. I have struggled to get to Page 149, hoping that the next page will provide some action, a bit of suspense. None so far. Perhaps it is just the subject matter, government fraud. It should be intriguing, but in this novel, it isn't. Doubt I will finish it.
Giving two Stars because I realize I am not always going to enjoy every novel by an author I usually like.
Knights from Bernin
David Ellis has used his experience prosecuting government corruption in Chicago to create an entirely plausible, and highly entertaining, fictional state with a corrupt governor. Jason Kolarich, an up and rising criminal defense lawyer, has his personal life destroyed when his wife and infant daughter are killed driving in a storm. His wife was driving because he chose to work late, trying to nail down just one more witness. Buried in guilt, he effectively retires from life.

Then he learns that the witness he couldn't find was murdered the same night that Jason's wife and daughter dies. At the same time, the client whose case Jason was working on offers him a state job. Jason believes that the murder and the job are connected, so begins his own investigation. He quickly gets tied up with the feds--and the plot continues on at a good clip from there on, as Jason gets deeper and deeper into corruption, and his personal quest for justice/redemption moves forward.

This would be five stars--but I decided who did it about half way through the book--well before Jason, which kind of killed the momentum. Ellis attempts to build some drama into the closing part of the book (where we all know who "did it" with a secondary plot about an execution--but frankly it felt forced to me. Hence, four stars.

That said, I'd definitely try another Ellis book.

Pretty good read. Okay I’m the one that doesn’t like a lot of the “F” word in books and this had more than I want to read. Just put “F”. You don’t have to spell it out. I know I’m sure people talk like that all the tine but I do t keep company with them. Back to the story. Good story, I like the character, Jason and will read the next book with him in it. Kept my interest and was intriguing.

Jason Kolarich is a great character for those of us who like attorneys who are strong-minded, tough, smart and willing to mix it up with almost anyone. Jason gets a full opportunity here, dealing with all sorts of crooked and unsavory characters. This is my second David Ellis book ( really enjoyed The Last Alibi) and his writing style is excellent, with just enough humor to go along with suspense and other elements. Would have given 5 stars but thought the book was a little long and slightly convoluted, but highly recommended.

David Ellis, Edgar Award Winner, delivers yet another top-notch legal thriller. This book centers on behind-the-scenes shenanigans that play out in state government, as the main character finds himself immersed in a corrupt hive of politicians. The ethics discussions in this book are surprisingly riveting, and the legal aspects are well explained. I do wish this had a little more suspense over the last 100 pages, but the first 300 were taut and nasty.

I wish Ellis wrote faster, but then his books wouldn't be as good.
