Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Ansel Largent has got a problem: His law firm's trust account has been embezzled to the tune of $200 million and Ansel believes his own son is responsible. So Ansel leaves with his wife for Mexico, where he believes his son has fled, in order to get the firm's money back. Problem after problem follows. 
Ansel finds himself in jail in Mexico, when who does he meet there but Thaddeus Murfee. Thaddeus is in jail for his own mess, and Ansel  hires Thaddeus to represent him. Never mind that they're both in jail--the FBI is coming to get them out.
The story follows a path to an unpredictable and surprise ending that everyone will love. 
A brief note:
Mental illness has too long been in the closet. This book presents a hero who suffers from a mental illness--or at least seems to. Or uses it to excuse his funky behaviors.
Do you know anyone like this?
As a writer and a human being I am extremely sensitive to the plight of the truly mentally ill. This book does not make fun of them and is in no manner a commentary on mental illness. Instead, it's a fun book, a book about a character who maybe does and maybe doesn't need the psychoactive medications prescribed for him.
You will have to read it to find out which it is.

About the Author

John Ellsworth was a practicing attorney who defended white collar crimes and criminal investigations and prosecutions by the federal government.  Tax crimes were a specialty and John appeared in court on these cases and in the audit pre-indictment stages nationwide.  For many years John defended criminal cases of the usual flavor too, from shoplifting to first-degree murder.   He has been lead counsel on death penalty cases and has never lost a client to the execution chamber. 

Today John believes in self-publication.  "I wrote a script for a Hollywood movie and it bounced around the studios for three years while other people talked and discussed and opined.  After three years there was still no movie, so I decided to start writing nothing but novels and to self-publish so there would be no middlemen between my writing and my readers."  The first book, a legal thriller titled The Defendants was first up to the plate.  Now John has published many more legal thrillers, with A Young Lawyer's Story now leading the Thaddeus Murfee Series.
