Friends this is my review of the book The Burning Man by Phillip Margolin which I have read recently. I don't believe that I have ever read any of Philips books before so was not quite sure what I would get. But I was pleasantly surprised. The characters were well crafted and believable, It was a good story.
Peter Hale is a young upshot attorney who feels frustrated in his father's law firm. When circumstances give him the opportunity to shine, he dives in without thinking and fails spectacularly. He looses a very high profile case. Then his job, then falls out with his father. The only job he can get is as a public defender in a small town legal firm. But again his ego and greed gets in the way and he nearly manages to mess up this up.
Fortunately he finally realises what he is doing, retains his job by a whisker and starts the slow process of regaining his life as he works as a public defender. But can he put things right and sort out the mess. He has to choose his priorities.
An enjoyable book and I will look out more books by Phillip. This was book 2 week 2 fiction 2 (audio books 1) non fiction 0
