“A Legal Thriller”
‘An Equal Justice’
by Chad Zunker
Mailbox Monday

I seem to be on something of a mini roll of legal thrillers just recently and boy, have they been good!

I need to thank publisher Thomas & Mercer, publicist Little Bird Publicity and download specialists NetGalley, for getting this one to me.

The book doesn’t publish until November 1st 2019 and author Chad Zunker will be stopping by for a chat on Monday November 4th, which I am looking forward to.

You can pre-order from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com

AN EQUAL JUSTICE (David AdamsBook #1)

Cover Image of the book 'An Equal Justice' by author Chad ZunkerInside a prestigious law firm, a rookie lawyer is pulled into a dark maze of lies and violence.

An ambitious Stanford graduate, David Adams has begun a fast-track career at Austin’s most prestigious law firm. It’s a personal victory for the rising superstar—a satisfying reversal from his impoverished and despairing childhood. Now he has the life he’s always wanted: an extravagant salary, a high-rise condo, a luxury SUV, and no limit to how far he can go in the eyes of the top partners.

But after the shocking suicide of a fellow associate—one who, in his final hours, offered David an ominous warning—he feels the pull of powerful forces behind the corporation’s enviable trappings. The suicide leads unexpectedly to David’s discovery of a secret enclave of the city’s homeless, where he can’t help but feel an affinity to these outcast souls. Nor can he ignore the feeling that they hold the key to the truth behind a dark conspiracy.

When one of his new street friends is murdered, David’s clear doubts about his employer start shifting into a dark reality. Now torn between two worlds, David must surrender all that he’s achieved to fight for a larger cause of justice—and become his firm’s most dangerous acquisition.

CHAD ZUNKER

He has wanted to write full time since he took his first practice hit as a skinny freshman walk-on from a 6’5, 240 pound senior All-American safety — which crushed both him and his feeble NFL dreams.

Chad has worked for some of the country’s most powerful law firms and has also invented a range of baby products which are sold all over the world.

He is the author of the bestselling Sam Callahan thriller series and he is now hard at work on the next David Adams legal thriller.

He lives in Austin, Texas with his wife and children.

“The seed for AN EQUAL JUSTICE was first planted 13 years ago, when my work with an Austin nonprofit introduced me to the city’s homeless community. Much like my protagonist David Adams, I entered the woods outside an Austin subdivision and came upon a hidden homeless village with a dozen camp tents circled up around a roaring campfire. The men living in the village welcomed me with a great deal of warmth and generosity, and I have since been working to empower and uplift members of my local homeless community. I volunteer my time at Community First! Village, a 51-acre master-planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the chronically homeless in Austin.”

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • I don’t read many legal thrillers these days, though I did love John Grisham when he began publishing novels. This sounds interesting, as does the author’s background. I have a niece who moved to Austin this past year and she loves it there. I’ll have to ask her if she’s heard of “Community First! Village”.

    • Hi Kelly,

      ‘Community First’ does have its own website and some very comprehensive goals and ambitions for the site. Much of it does still seem to be at the planning stage right now, so I hope that it all comes to fruition as hoped!

      As for ‘Equal Justice’ – this is the third legal thriller I have on my list in as many weeks and they do all sound really good.

      I have read one of the books so far and got rather excited by it, so I do hope that whilst the others are equally as good, they offer a slightly different take on the genre, as there can only be so many up and coming John Grishams on the scene!

      I have received copy through of Chad’s upcoming Q&A guest post and I am really looking forward to sharing that with you.

      Have a good week and thanks for stopping by 🙂

    • Hi Martha,

      Legal thrillers isn’t a genre I have explored too closely in my recent / mid-range reading and blogging schedule, however I have been treated to a couple of really good titles and storylines very recently and have realized what I have been missing out on!

      Thanks for stopping by, I always value your visits 🙂

    • Hi Mary,

      Do I take that to mean you also work closely with Little Bird Publicity, or do you know Chad Zunker?

      I almost always tend to work from Kindle downloads, with links provided by the publicist, through NetGalley. It is very rarely that I get a physical copy of a book delivered to my door but I don’t really mind that too much!

      I hope you have some great back-up books from your TBR pile to keep you happy this week 🙂

    • Hi Kathy,

      I agree that homelessness is one of the great social issues of our times and one we should be ashamed of in the 21st Century!

      The project of which Chad is a part, sounds like an excellent idea. We have a very similar scheme operating over here in parts of the UK, using shipping containers which have been converted into small homes spaces, although it doesn’t quite have the ‘village or community’ feel of those in Texas …

      I like the way that Chad has worked both his job and an outside interest about which he is passionate, into his storyline and come up with what I very much hope is a winning combination 🙂
