The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

David is the star of the 3 newly hired rookie lawyer at the most prestigious law firm in Austin. Money, more money than he even dreamed, women, praise, gifts, opportunities and the fast track to partner; everything is aces. Then the wheels begin to fall off the Land Rover...David sees things he shouldn’t have. People are dying and others are a little too convenient. There are a lot of questions and not many answers until the very end of this well controlled mystery.
Chad Zunker has introduced us to a new hero in “An Equal Justice”. The writing is comfortable with one annoying exception - using prepositional phrases as sentences. I find it distracting. The first 25% of the book is filled with character introductions and not a lot of development. It’s a bit like LeCarre’ - eventually the main characters get filled in but it’s hard fought. Usually, I’d get frustrated at this but the pacing of the book is so good I was patient rather than frantic. A nice change of pace.
Another nice change of pace is that this book is absolutely clean! The language, the violence the romance - your 16 year old and your grandmother could both read this book and be thoroughly entertained and not blush for a single second. Thank you, Chad Zunker! Good literature does not have to be crude.
The mystery itself is tightly guarded, in fact, you won’t even be sure WHAT is being solved until close to the end of the story. The characters are wonderful especially the brotherhood of homeless guys. Zunker treats them with kindness and respect that goes beyond the literary experience and is obviously part of his avocation. You’ll be blessed for the experience of reading this book I’m looking forward to volume 2 in the spring of 2020📚
