The 24-hour news cycle is abuzz when the police arrest homeless Iraq war veteran Mike Stoller for the murder of a young paralegal on her way home from night-school class. Stoller doesn't deny killing the woman, but his post-traumatic stress disorder is so bad that he has no real memory of that night. Jason Kolarich agrees to take the case only weeks before trial, and realizes that, unlikely as it seems, his client is probably innocent. The murdered paralegal had been tracing a money trail leading to a conspiracy of terrorists who come from the last place you'd expect: corporate America. Her murder was no random crime, and the wrong man was charged - leaving Jason Kolarich racing to save Stoller while simultaneously preventing a terrorist's bomb from detonating in his city.

Read the publisher's summary, I try not to write spoilers.
From a calm beginning to a frantic rush to sort out seemingly unrelated threads, this book kept me entertained from beginning to end. The background for the mysteries is well done; I didn't ever get bored. The characters range from tragic veteran to home grown terrorists to mob hit persons. All is wrapped up in a satisfactory manner. My one disappointment was the somewhat obvious ending. I am not sure it should have been done differently, but it seemed like an afterthought to a well paced book.
This is the first of David Ellis' books I have read, and I read it in Audible format. All I can say is that it is a first class thriller!
I almost always have two books in progress: One on my Kindle, the other in Audio format, and I read from 3 to 4 total per week. If a book does not hold my interest, I put it aside, and try it again later - sometimes years later - and then maybe I find it to be interesting enough to finish. I say that merely to lend credence to my evaluation. Many of the best, I will read several times over the years, much like Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series. David Ellis' books will be on that re-read list!
This book, The Wrong Man, is OUTSTANDING! It held my attention from the very first page. I won't repeat the plot descriptions that others have written, as that is unnecessary. My goal is for my reviews to be credible so that people have trust that I will not highly recommend a book that does not keep my interest.
The Wrong Man definitely kept my interest! Ellis has a way of drawing the reader in with a well written narrative, with every word on every page having meaning to the story at hand. He makes you feel as if you, the reader, are actually his protagonist, Jason Kolarich - facing the same forces that he faces in his quest to see justice done. I have since obtained every one of Ellis' novels, and will be putting them at the top of my reading list over the next few weeks and months!
And, I won't wait for his books to hit the discount list. As he writes new novels, I will be among the first to purchase them, as his are on my same priority list as are Lee Child, David Baldacci, Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly, John Sandford's Virgil Flowers series, Nelson DeMille, John Gilstrap's Jonathan Grave series, and a few others. For awhile there, just a few years ago, all my favorite authors had died; but, now I have many more favorites that, as I further age toward my declining years, I'll have these friends to accompany me along that trip, giving me comfort and satisfaction along the way!
