Runaway Justice by Chad Zunker

Street Kid. Street Law. Runaway Justice by Chad Zunker.

Attorney David Adams is the last hope for an adolescent runaway being targeted by an assassin and sought by the FBI in a breath-catching novel by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of An Unequal Defense.

Having abandoned corporate law, David Adams is now the voice of justice for the city of Austin’s vulnerable outcasts. His new client is Parker Barnes, a trembling twelve-year-old runaway and foster-care poster boy arrested for petty theft. Dealt a rough hand in life, he reminds David of his own childhood. This should be a simple, if heartbreakingly familiar, case. Until the FBI muscles in.

Parker is also a suspect in the murder of a federal witness. No matter how desperate Parker’s denial, David fears there’s so much more to the kid’s hard-luck story than he’s letting on. Especially when a hit man sends the boy running to the only safe place he knows: the streets.

With both the feds and a killer on Parker’s trail, the hunt is on. Teaming up with a pro bono investigator and utilizing his reliable band of street-savvy friends, David must find Parker first if he’s to save the boy from an undeserved fate. And maybe even save himself.

I have not read the first book in this series but never felt that I was missing information.

David is an attorney who fights for the little guy. He loves what he does, but it sometimes is hard to pay the bills. When he gets a strange call to go down to juvenile detention and help a boy he’s never met, David hops in his car and goes to see what he can do. What he doesn’t know is his life is about to change forever.

Jess is not at all upset about the community service she has to do. Working with a defense attorney as their investigator is just up her alley. She’s an amazingly strong woman who gets the job done.

Parker is just trying to survive into his adulthood. When he witnesses something he knows he shouldn’t, he doesn’t have anyone he can turn to. Parker knows the only person he can count on is himself.

Racing against the clock and bad guys, everyone is trying to figure out why Parker is running, who wants him dead, and what it has to do with, because the pieces just aren’t fitting well together. This will keep you on your toes and keep you engaged. While it’s not a complex story, it is one that is fun and exciting to read. I truly enjoyed these characters and how they came together.
