From the back cover: It’s just business—but it’s about to get personal for hard-nosed lawyer David Friedman when the housing crash of 2008 derails his shot at partnership with Southwest Florida’s most prestigious law firm. Given a year to prove he can make rain during Florida’s economic drought, David rolls up his sleeves and lands the client of his dreams—Frank O’Reilly, a real estate developer embroiled in dozens of lawsuits and hell-bent on turning a profit during the recession. Little does David know that Frank’s company is involved in a murderous plot to cover up years of mortgage fraud in the Sunshine State.
As David prepares for a trial that will make or break his career, he discovers that a secret investor in Frank’s company is responsible for murder and will continue killing to hide the truth. The only thing David can’t figure out is whether Frank is the conspiracy’s victim or its mastermind. To answer that question, David must risk far more than partnership as he unravels one dark secret after another about his client, his law firm, and, ultimately, himself.
Attorney David Friedman is not Perry Mason. David was looking to make partner in the firm he works for but he was passed over. Now, if he works miracles, he will be looked at in another year. So David turns to other work and finds real estate developer Frank O’Reilly. This is the time of the housing crash so things are not well with O’Reilly. As things progress David goes to court but O’Reilly may be involved in murder or there is someone else working for him that is. Mr. Thames has provided us with a highly complicated plot. David is a highly interesting character and you have to make a decision if he himself is a good or bad guy or both. “Foreclosure” is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Mr. Thames has provided us with a fairly exciting book and well worth the read.
