Thaddeus Murfee stars in this series of legal thrillers that is written by John Ellsworth. John Ellsworth was once a trial lawyer (which he did for thirty years), but made the jump to being a writer. He did this after feeling very tired of working in the legal field. He writes legal thrillers, and uses his knowledge of the law to help him write the books in the series. The series began in the year 2014 when the novel “The Defendants” was released.

When he gets out of college (he went to law school at Georgetown), he had just two hundred dollars to his name. He had to borrow a suit from his roommate for his first job interview. The first job that he gets, there is no description; it is not even advertised anywhere. In this job, he does not know exactly what he will be doing for his new employers. He works undercover for an agency to take the US Attorney down. This attorney is supposed to be selling secrets. Thaddeus just thinks that the guy is a great boss that sends gifts his way, and even wants to introduce Thaddeus to his daughter. It does not seem to jive, that this guy is actually selling secrets. There is no proof that he is. The more he works for them, the more questions he has about the whole thing.So is he, or not? Do they even have proof of this accusation that they are making about him?

“The Defendants” is the first novel in the “Thaddeus Murfee Legal Thriller” series and was released in the year 2014. A man carved his name into Ermeline Ransom’s chest. Later, he was murdered. A new attorney named Thaddeus Murfee is hired to defend her. Ermeline’s persecutors are the Chicago Mob, the governor of Illinois, and the District Attorney. The novel is set in a small town in the state of Illinois, the governor of the state accepts payoff from different contractors in the state for construction jobs. The governor is at the bedrock of the scheme to get Ermeline locked up for this crime that she did not commit. Thaddeus is told that no one can beat the Mob. Thaddeus needs the help of the FBI in the case, but is unsure if they will come after his client as well. The FBI now knows about the players involved. For Thaddeus gets her off for murder, he must outwit the Mob and the governor, and not get killed himself. And then, he must also prove that she is innocent. The trial begins, and then a show down takes place between Murfee and a Mob hitman.

Fans of the novel found that this read does a great job depicting lawyers and the ins and outs of defending someone. This is for anyone that enjoys courtroom drama and legal thrillers. John Ellsworth nails the atmosphere of a small town, not to mention the quirky characters that are often found in small towns. And even the sketchy side of corruption and big city politics. Some readers were unable to put the book down to do their chores and could not wait to get more installments from the series.

“Beyond A Reasonable Death” is the second novel in the “Thaddeus Murfee Legal Thriller” series and was released in the year 2014.

Hopefully, he can be safe here, while pursuing the case against a godfather. Thaddeus would like to take the godfather’s toys away so that it will end the struggle they are having. The story goes from Chicago, to Vegas, to Arizona, and then Colorado; all places that Thaddeus is hunted. He does not want to tell the FBI where he is because he is afraid of what will happen to him. They know about the plot the Mob has put together against him and he needs their help. He goes up against the well funded lawyers that want to protect the mobsters. Thaddeus takes the case to court and gets astounding results.

Fans of the novel felt hooked to this story right from the get go.

Some found that they cannot wait to start the next book, and that they read the novel until they have finished it. Fans found that they had found a great new legal thriller author.
