    One thought on “Breach of Trust

    1. Michael

      Jason Kolarich performed well as second chair of the defense in the trial of Senator Hector Almundo. Almundo allegedly dealt the the Cannibals street gang. They were shaking down businessmen for money for the senators election and then splitting the money. When one businessman didn't want to donate. He was murdered. Almundo is charged with conspiracy.One night, Kolarich is waiting for a call from a confidential informant, Ernesto Ramirez. The call is important so Kolarich's wife takes their infa [...]

      Tough to write a good story about corruption and a snitch, but Ellis does a pretty good job, considering. 6 of 10 stars

    3. Armin Hennig

      Deutliche SteigerungDie gute Nachricht zuerst: endlich mal ein Krimi aus neuerer Zeitrechnung, der ohne das übliche Schreckensarsenal von Kinderschändern, Neonazis, Terroristen, Serienmördern oder Psychopathen auskommt. Auch die zuletzt ziemlich überbeschäftigten Forensiker und das zugehörige Team von hochqualifizierten mit jedem nur erdenklichen ethnischen Hintergrund versehenen Laborratten haben nicht mal ein noch so kurzes Gastspiel in diesem legal Thriller. Denn es geht um Korruption i [...]

      Political corruption plots aren't generally my cup of tea, but David Ellis’ “Breach of Trust” has all the elements of a very compelling read. Furthermore, you can't help but like Jason Kolarich, whom we first met in “The Hidden Man”. Here, we follow this young lawyer’s struggle to uncover the truth behind the killing of a potential witness. The unveiling of this murder is of the most vital importance to Kolarich as he was waiting for a call from this witness the night his wife and ba [...]

      Another excellent book by David Ellis. In Breach of Trust we are once again introduced to Jason Kolarich. I believe the storyline for this book actually takes place before that of The Hidden Man his previous book (which I read and absolutely loved). In this book Jason has recently joined a private firm and is working to defend a politician of questionable integrity when the investigation leads to the murder of a potential witness and on the same night an accident in which Jason's wife and baby d [...]

      Jason Kolarich was once an up-and-coming young defense attorney at one of Chicago’s highest profile private law firms. Following a case in which his strategy was the key in securing the acquittal of a State Senator from federal murder charges it seemed as if the sky was the limit for his future. Except something went terribly wrong at the end of the trial.While he was in his office late one winter night waiting for a phone call from an informant, Jason’s wife, tired of waiting for him to com [...]

      At some point as I was reading this I was reminded of "The Firm," but this book is to "The Firm" what major league baseball is to a t-ball game. Written by a true subject matter expert, it tells a very deep and tangled story of political corruption. The level of corruption seemed so believable that I got discouraged, thinking that this sort of thing probably does go on without our knowledge.The author is a great writer. I especially like how, when mentioning a character the reader might have for [...]

    8. Linda

      As I began this book, I was disheartened to realize that this was a prequel to the first Jason Kolarich book, and I would have to suffer through the details of his personal tragedy that we learned of in that book. Knowing how it turns out was excruciating as I read about the details of how it happened.But, this is part of the reason I enjoyed the book. The characters feel real to me and I'm right along with them for the ride. Politics and corruption usually don't hold my interest, but I was comp [...]

      First I will say this my first time reading a book by this author and not what I would normaly read.I found that I really enjoyed this author and book. The book was an excellent and exciting read.This a action packed book. Centering around potlitical corruption. The character's are well developed and the story was really excellently writen. Now if you like a good action packed thriller this is the one to read.I going to check some of his other stories. I think I found a new author that I like

    10. Doug

      Jason Kolarich is a defense lawyer at a prestigious firm who successfully helps the senior partner acquit a city councilman of a murder charge. The acquittal comes at a high price to Jason and he leaves the firm and is offered a job in the city as an attorney for a procurement board. The FBI quickly approaches and blackmails him to take action that he had no intentions of doing. Not as good as others by this author, but still better than most.

    11. Monica

      A better than average legal/political thriller that makes great use of the author's experience as legal counsel to the Illinois House of Representatives. The echoes of the Blagojevich are everywhere and the seamy corruption described is all too familiar.

    12. William

      I think Ellis needs to stick with Patterson Corporate Book Writing Cabal.Story was just unbelievable, even by someone like me who studied Democratic political corruption since the 1960 election.

    13. Becka

      Not as good as The Hidden Man, the start of the Kolarich series. I don't like spy novels. And this felt very much like a spy/espionage novel. Also, the tricky timing in this (some of it travels back to before the previous book) is unnerving. Still, excellent writing and fast characters. I read it in one day.

    14. Rita Chapman

      A suspenseful fast-paced crime mystery involving politics, gangs, murder and one man's ability to do what he knows is right.

    15. LORI CASWELL

      Jason has lost his wife and baby daughter. He should have been in the car with them. He was more familiar with road. Instead he was waiting for a call that never came. He was waiting for an informant to call with vital information, but the informant was murdered before he could place the call. Jason carries the guilt of not only losing his family but the informant had a wife and kids too.Jason now has the opportunity to find the killer and bring him to justice. But the FBI is on to his plan as i [...]

      David Ellis takes another shot at a compelling character (Jason Kolarich from The Hidden Man) and the results are solid. Breach of Trust actually begins before the events of its predecessor, but the main action takes place after, so we see our protagonist in the months surrounding the events of Hidden (although it's not essential that you read the first to enjoy Breach). What it does for those who've read both is showcase a character under fire and ripe for change and Ellis definitely delivers t [...]

    17. Bill

      Breach of Trust is David Ellis' best book to date. He is a terrific writer, understands plotting and character development, and keeps the storyline moving. Ellis brings back Jason Kolarich, former college football player (who was kicked off the team for knocking out a star teammate) and former up-and-coming criminal defense attorney, has spent the last year struggling to recover from the untimely death of his wife and baby daughter in a car accident. Kolarich--who kept telling his wife he would [...]

      I went back and forth on this book. In the beginning it felt comfortable and fun and interesting and why-can't-more-legal-thrillers-be-written-like-this and then we get somewhere to the middle and it started to feel like every other legal thriller I've read. I still enjoyed it and would read more by David Ellis - probably because I attended one of his book signings and he seemed so personable and interesting. In this book, our hero Jason Kolarich (and thankfully the author makes a point about ho [...]

      I was thrilled to win this book from the First Reads giveaway. I enjoyed the plot and kept wanting to read what Kolarich would find out next. The way the story was told and the narrator's voice kept reminding me of other novels in the legal thriller genre and of older detective stories in general. I attribute this to the fact that Kolarich kept repeating the facts he had learning and speculating about who he needed to talk to next to find out more. I had this recurring image in my head of Kolari [...]

      I'm excited to read my copy of Breach of Trust! Firstreads win.I'll start off by saying Breach of Trust by David B. Ellis is an excellent read. It was my first book by this author and I definitely will read more of his books.I loved the main character, Jason, because of his integrity, intelligence and grit. His actions and reactions to the events in the story were not always the ones I would have had or expected. The secondary characters added depth. I often have trouble keeping track if there a [...]

    21. Nicole

      Breach of Trust is an action-packed thriller focusing on political corruption (who would have thought that every happened? Politicians? Corrupt? NEVER). The whole book takes place from a lawyer's point-of-view as he tries to solve the puzzle of who murdered one of his anonymous informants. His quest for the truth and closure, ultimately leads to him infiltrating a corrupt political ring. We get to be there with him as he lies his way into their inner circle and ultimately screws them all over in [...]

    22. Lynn

      I liked Breach of Trust much better than the first book in the series. For one thing, Ellis didn't jump back and forth between the past and the present within the same chapter, which he did in the first book - making it very confusing to follow. The characters in this book were also more fully-developed and the suspense kicked up a notch.In Breach of Trust, Jason Kolarich finds himself forced to act as a confidential informant for the Feds. He goes undercover to expose corruption within the Gove [...]

    23. Elian

      I really enjoyed this book! It was my first time reading something by this author. So enjoyed his style of writing. I found the writing almost like watching a movie - the scene was unfurled as you "watched", and it was easy to picture everything, with just a few words.I loved the characterization, as well. The main character was one I could really get behind. I was just discovering House M.D. when reading this, and it was interesting, because they have some of the same sarcasm bent to them, with [...]

      I won an advance copy of this book on LibraryThing, and I was thrilled at yet another chance to be introduced to a previously unknown author (unknown to me, anyway). This book had a solid plot that was quite easy to follow, despite the multitude of characters involved and the intertwining levels of corruption going on. There were only a couple parts that had me shaking my head at the antics of the main character (it involved intimate encounters with someone the guy had just met moments before), [...]
