Discovery of a wonderful new thriller author!!

While searching for legal thrillers I ran across Adequate Counsel, the first novel by O.R. Johnson. There is a lot to like about this wonderful legal thriller. The characters are well developed, the plot is plausible, there is real humanity in the characters and the plot, the suspense is intense and sustained, and the novel is well written. She, the author, is a very talented writer. I look forward to future novels from O.R. Johnson. Narration is simply superb! The narrator is very good with accents. I VERY, VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this wonderful novel.

Legal Thriller

I enjoyed this legal mystery it held my interest as snobby nosed lawyer actually changes to help the underdogs. Michael’s father actually forced him into the situation of legal aid then wanted to go back to the elite law firm but he stuck with what he found he really enjoyed. He defends people /teens that are unprivileged and fight for them. Recommend to anyone who enjoys listening to legal mysteries (narration was great).I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you.
