"Inside a prestigious law firm, a rookie lawyer is pulled into a dark maze of lies and violence. An ambitious Stanford graduate, David Adams has begun a fast-track career at Austin's most prestigious law firm. It's a personal victory for the rising superstar--a satisfying reversal from his impoverished and despairing childhood. Now he has the life he's always wanted: an extravagant salary, a high-rise condo, a luxury SUV, and no limit to how far he can go in the eyes of the top partners. But after the shocking suicide of a fellow associate--one who, in his final hours, offered David an ominous warning--he feels the pull of powerful forces behind the corporation's enviable trappings. The suicide leads unexpectedly to David's discovery of a secret enclave of the city's homeless, where he can't help but feel an affinity to these outcast souls. Nor can he ignore the feeling that they hold the key to the truth behind a dark conspiracy. When one of his new street friends is murdered, David's clear doubts about his employer start shifting into a dark reality. Now torn between two worlds, David must surrender all that he's achieved to fight for a larger cause of justice--and become his firm's most dangerous acquisition."--Provided by publisher.… (mehr)

Very good start, but then I just lost interest. DNF ( )

*****

David Adams has bought into the life of a high powered lawyer. He's let someone talk him into an overpriced living space, a fancy car, etc.

An encounter with a seemingly homeless man and the camp he inhabits, as well as his dream for building a village of tiny homes on a piece of land, changes David.

I think the author perhaps tried to emulate Grisham, but this didn't seem to have the characters for that level. I enjoyed it, but felt it dragged on far too long and once I was done, I had to really think to remember what the book had been about. ( )

An Equal Justice is like the perfect recipe with all the right ingredients, but then the chef forgets to add the spices.

The story starts with several unconnected narrating characters whose stories eventually converge. It's easy to follow, but the pace is slow, meandering along as we spend way more time than necessary dwelling on David's poor childhood and his current obsession with wealth.

When we finally get to the heart of the story, it feels too contrived, too much of a plot-by-the-numbers. Something's missing. I experienced this story intellectually but not emotionally. I didn't feel anything.

The finally quarter of the book picks up, rushing us toward a dramatic conclusion.

In the end, this is short, quick read that doesn't live up to its potential. ( )
