This is the story of Oliver (Ollie) Olson, a law student who's finished his second year of school. Now, allow me to translate the complete meaning of this sentence for anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of attending law school. Ollie knows the law school drill now and can probably brief case opinions in his sleep. However, when it comes to dealing with the real world aspects of dealing with actual clients with genuine problems, Ollie's a nice guy, but about as clueless as they come.

This may be especially true given that Ollie comes from a working class background and he's participating as a summer associate, aka, intern, at Kohlberg & Crowley, a big deal international law firm in Los Angeles, where he fits in like a guppy in a shark tank.

However, Ollie isn't threatened by anyone at the firm. He's assigned to a case, in which the firm is trying to get a former U.S. senator James Steele released from prison, where they claim he's being wrongly held. Why? Because they say he was wrongfully convicted of killing his wife, Sharon, due to ineffective assistance of counsel. And his lawyer at the time was one of the greatest criminal defense attorneys around -- Garrett Andersen.

And when Ollie meets Steele in prison, he seems like a guy who really got screwed the hell over. So Ollie really wants to bust his ass for him and see that justice is done. Even though he sees his job as doing research to find support for "a legal technicality." But the law is the law. And lawyers uphold the law, don't they? Right!

Oh, and did I mention that the firm is paying Ollie three grand a week to do this? THREE GRAND? Every freaking week? And he's NOT. EVEN. A LAWYER!

The worst part is, I didn't have to suspend my disbelief about this part at all.

Follow the Money is an exciting tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Ollie Olsen is a second year law student who has landed a golden opportunity. He has been invited by a high profile law office to work for them as a summer associate. His first assignment has him knee deep in a twelve year old murder case. Ollie's job is to find a way to get the convicted murderer, who just happens to be a former politician, off the hook.

As Ollie begins to uncover clues about the case, he finds himself in the middle of something that he soon wishes he had never been a part of.

The suspense will keep you turning pages, and the dramatic twists in the story will keep your heart racing as the story unfolds.

Fingers Murphy did an excellent job of keeping this chick-lit reader engrossed in a story outside of her norm. I found a whole new genre of books to love.

I liked this book for the most part. I would have loved it if not for two basic flaws. First, the book constantly refers to a possible alibi for the Accused. The Accused didn't have an alibi. What he had was other suspects with motive and opportunity. That's not an alibi.

The other thing that just didn't work for me was....

SPOILER ALERT... stop reading now if you don't want me to give the ending away....

I don't see how it's possible for a property to sit empty and unknown for years. Especially in a highly populated area. Someone would have to pay property taxes on it and when those go unpaid for a number of years, the property is auctioned.

Sorry to be so picky. Otherwise, I felt it was well-written. The author just needs to have someone with more legal knowledge read his work before it's published.

Take a brutal murder, rumors of infidelity, a tainted conviction, an ambitious law student and the backdrop of Los Angeles, mix it with some seedy, noir characters and what do you get? In the best of worlds, the reincarnation of Raymond Chandler. Well, you can't always get what you want.
In "Follow the Money", Fingers Murphy tries his best to deliver the goods. Oliver Olson grew up middle class in Riverside, California and now is a second year law student with a summer job working at the prestigious LA firm of Kohlberg & Crowley. His boss assigns him to research an appeal of the twelve year old murder conviction of former US Senator James Steele. Police responding to a 911 call found Steele covered with his wife's blood, her body lifeless in a bathtub. He spun a tale of an intruder who murdered his wife as the Senator watched TV, and then cut Steele's hand before escaping. Prestigious attorney Garrett Anderson defended Steele, but lost the case. Oliver is tasked with finding legal miscues in the defense, thereby invalidating the conviction.
Oliver, already reveling in the prestige of working for K & C, takes his job seriously. He begins interviewing everyone connected with the case, beginning with the imprisoned Steele. Immediately, strange things start happening. People are following him. He finds his apartment lights on twice after coming home. The case against Steele was circumstantial and the police perhaps overlooked potential witnesses, some of whom are openly hostile to Oliver. Oliver complicates his life further by having a wild one night stand with another summer law student while his idealistic girlfriend labors at her volunteer job at the Legal Aid Society.
Well and good, thus far.
