Attorney’s Run is the fifth book in the Nick Teffinger series by R.J.Jagger. The protagonist is Nick Teffinger, a detective in the Denver P.D., who in this series heads the unit. While investigating a grisly murder of an airline pilot, he comes across a stunning female with whom he gets involved with. As it turns out that his new found love interest is connected to the murder that he is investigating and leads to another parallel story involving a human trafficking racket. The other lead character in the book is London Vaughn, a rookie lawyer, who is working as Teffinger’s love interest’s lawyer and takes the biggest law firm in the city head-on in a legal battle.
This book will not require you to write down the plot of the book on a piece of paper or rack your grey cells to keep track of the developments in the plot. The ending is rather abrupt and the last two chapters are not so intriguing as the beginning of the book. There are a few anti-climaxes in the book and overall the book does keep your interest level piqued to make this a fast-paced read. The chapters are short and keep jumping between different characters which makes for a unique writing style and a page turner!
The book is definitely good for passing time when you are travelling. This was the first R.J.Jagger book that I read and this was definitely a good way of killing time while being interested in the plot.
This is the latest thriller by David Baldacci is a page turner for sure. The book is a testament on how the greed can present itself as a motivator for the country men to turn traitors. The story is set in the post 9/11 world where John Puller (the male protagonist), an army investigator, is sent to Drake, West Virginia, to investigate the brutal murder of an army colonel and his family. What meets the eye is not reality here and the little town which seems almost dead apart from a coal mining company turns out to giving Puller more work than he bargained. He is flying solo on this investigation and being assisted by Sam Cole (the female protagonist), the Sergeant, at the local Sheriff’s office. Together they unravel a mystery which has far reaching consequences and all the while they have dead bodies piling up all round them!
Throughout the book, you will be amazed by the amount of detailing that the author provides you with the procedures of the various professions and organizations that he has touched in this book be it forensics or the United States Army or nuclear physics!
A page turner to say the least and one of the best works of David Baldacci! A definite must read!
