The Parliament House series reminds me of Peter May's stories. There are very few wasted sidetracks and the "distance" traveled from start to end is not too great but the story is well told and the ride is always enjoyable.
I look forward to Mr. McLane's next problem and the growth of Maisie Rodgers.
In The Trust, Maisie Rodgers and Heather Morris are admitted to become Members of Faculty as Advocates. The calling means: “Justice is only served when everyone trusts their fellow Advocates and performs to the best of their abilities”. However, for one of these newly admitted advocates, this does not apply. Her loyalties are elsewhere, across countries and corporates.
The Trust is impossible to put down as disloyalty and betrayal unfold right until the end of the book. The betrayal filters into Brogan’s personal life to a dangerous extent. The betrayal could also filter into the Scottish Parliament. Brogan has to hold it all together and he needs the help of trusted friends and colleagues to do so.
Breakaway Reviewers received a copy of the book to review.
Trust is a big issue for Advocate McLane in the Supreme courts of Scotland. That is what is the driving plot behind this story. Mr. McLane witnesses a suicide and starts to investigate areas with relation to his clients. He represents a variety of people and eventually finds many areas where trust from the court system has not been accurate. The book is well worth reading from the procedural legal stand and from the humanitarian viewpoints. There are some great surprises as Mr. McLane finds himself targeted as well. Secrets galore. Great history references that I enjoyed as they refer to the 500 year history of Scotland.
The character of Brogan McLane is very evocative and compelling and when he witnesses a suicide he cannot simply walk away and forget. When the Faculty and the University are hacked McLane decides to do some digging, but who can he truly trust? And what do the two new Members of Faculty have to do with all of this?
Naturally, there are a lot of technical terms and traditions described throughout but I rather enjoyed this element of the story as it gave me an insight into a world I know nothing about. With intriguing characters, danger, and betrayal, THE TRUST by John Mayer is a solid story.
