Marc Wilson is a new lawyer with no prospects. He was gainfully employeed as an intern when he was in law school but was not hired after graduation. No other law firm seems to want him. Desperate and running out of funds, Marc has an opportunity to break into a computer system and takes advantage to put his name on a list for an ethics committee spot.
Marc is so sure he will be found out but he suddenly gets an invite to their next meeting. At the meeting, he is approached by Bill Eckert, the head of a prominent law firm and offered a job. Marc can't believe his luck and gratefully accepts the position. It turns out that what seems too good to be true, is too good to be true. At the next ethics meeting Marc finds that the man he works for is not what he expected as well as the other members of the committee. Pretty soon Marc has to decide if he want to overlook the "craziness" of the committee, keep his mouth shut and keep his good paying job.
The story seems to get more bizare as it goes along and it seems like everybody in a position of power is involved in satanism and possible murders. Even Marc's estranged uncle seems to be somehow involved. I liked the first half of this book a great deal but then like the writers of the show Happy Days, this writer seemed to "jump the shark" and the book went on a downward spiral from there. A lot of things just seemed to happen that were insults to the reader. Also while the writer is obviously well educated as to legal processes, he somehow misses some obvious things. At some point the evildoers frame Marc and he is a very wanted man. Marc seems to blatently use his ATM card and is never tracked by law enforcement.
The end of the book feels like the author ran out of ideas and just wanted to quickly tie up the story. This book could have been a lot better and there are some really good parts in the book and Marc was a good character, so I feel that this author is capable of writing a really good book. Unfortunately this one fell short of the mark.
writings of the books I normally purchase.
