This latest in the series of Michael Gresham novels finds this criminal defense attorney representing an assistant DA on a murder charge. The defendant, who is also running for the job of district attorney, has the tables turned on her and is being prosecuted by her ex-boss who supports another candidate in the race. Gresham gets caught up in a corrupt police department and legal system in the city of Chicago and falls prey to colluding forces.
We are also introduced to a new character in Harley Sturgis, who joins forces with Michael, first in his defense, and then finally on the defense team for his client.
This is a thrilling legal adventure made even more so by Ellsworth's long career as a lawyer having experienced similar courtroom situations. "The Law Partners" serves exceptionally well as a standalone novel, but I'd like to encourage any new readers to consider reading the Michael Gresham series from the beginning. If you like realistic legal drama at a more granular level but not lacking in mystery, action, and compelling stories then these books are for you.
