The Breach of Trust is the second installment from the award-winning author, David Ellis. Just like the first book, Breach of Trust focuses on the attorney Jason Kolarich who this time around is caught between a violent thug and a vengeful adversary.

In the Breach of Trust, the author introduces the reader to Ernesto Ramirez, an ex –street gang member who has turned into a good guy. After a series of intense interrogation, Ernesto Ramirez finally caved in and gave Jason useful intel. However, the information that he gave out would come to be less than essential. Jason had already acquired all the information that he required to exonerate his client, at Chris Moody’s expense. Chris Moody was the governments lead prosecutor.
However, towards the end of the trial, something goes terribly wrong. One fine evening when he was still working in his office, waiting for a phone call from one of his informant’s, Jason’s spouse who was more than tired of waiting for him decided to pack her bags and took her daughter to visit her parents. However, the two never made it to their destination. Their car had an accident, and they both died. Not able to stand the loss, Jason was at a point in his life where he never thought he would be. He not only lost hope, but he also stopped caring at all. He stopped caring about himself and his business as well. He continued to blame himself because he believed that if he were the one who was driving the accident would never have happened. Upon learning that one of the informant’s that he had been waiting on, had killed himself the same night that his family had died, Jason is not only jolted back to life but also back into action.
Jason believed that the two deaths were not a coincidence because they all happened at the same time. As he begins the investigation, Jason soon finds himself tangled in a dark web of corruption, extortion and kickbacks, which appears to begin from the governor’s office. Caught in the midst of crocked politicians, their crocked advisors and the federal government which was looking into the corruption cases, Jason has to find the truth, since he desperately needs to move on with his life. With that said, David Ellis is not just any attorney who eventually turned into an author. Having being featured in the impeachment trial of the infamous Governor Rod Blagojevich, Ellis had an in-depth amount of knowledge on how dirty politics may get and what exactly is required to take down corrupt officials.
