BREACH OF TRUST
BREACH OF TRUST is a continuation of the story begun in THE HIDDEN MAN. Jason Kolarich is remarried with a new family having recovered the the deaths of his first wife and daughter in a tragic accident. Previously a prosecutor, Jason finds himself embroiled in the affairs of the same Chicago politicos, but this time as a defense attorney.
One of his contacts in THE HIDDEN MAN was murdered and Jason feels responsible. While doing his own investigation, he is quickly coerced by U.S. Attorney Chris Moody and the FBI to work undercover to expose local government corruption. Kolarich finally agrees, but only on his own terms and is soon running from the same people he's trying to ensnare.
BREACH OF TRUST is a stand-alone book; you don't need to have read THE HIDDEN MAN first but you might like to. David Ellis has written another good, solid legal thriller.
