An Unequal Defense by Chad Zunker

A client with delusions of a deadly conspiracy draws attorney David Adams into a darkness where only the paranoid know how to get out alive.

Former up-and-coming hotshot attorney David Adams left his glamorous corporate law firm to fight for the disenfranchised. With a caseload of petty offenses, a meager office in a crumbling building, and little in the way of compensation, David needs a real case.

When he agrees to represent Rebel, David recognizes this will be the biggest challenge of his young legal career. The mentally unstable homeless man has been accused of murder, and the evidence of his guilt seems overwhelming. But it’s the victim who shakes David’s world: a county prosecutor who just happens to be an old law school friend. Rebel’s murky defense: a paranoid insistence on a CIA plot to silence the derelict.

Aided only by a “legal team” of misfit street friends and a fellow counselor lured into this dark web, David will risk everything to defend his client… who may not be nearly as crazy as he seems.

M/F Thriller

I didn't read the first book in the series but didn't ever feel that I was missing anything.

David once worked at a lucrative law firm. But after seeing it for what it was to him, he decided to branch out on his own and try to represent people who may not be able to afford the best. What he didn't anticipate was how difficult it would be to bring in any clients who were able to pay for the legal services they needed.

When David's law school friend is murdered, the last thing David expects is to take the case and defend the accused. However, with the first meeting, while David decides whether or not he really will take the case, Rebel speaks to a different part of David.

David and his band of misfits do their best to solve the mystery. Rebel is trusting David and David has to see the evidence for what it is.

I really enjoyed this story. While I wouldn't say this is exactly a legal thriller, it did keep you guessing and it was very fast paced.
