Publisher's Summary

A client with delusions of a deadly conspiracy draws attorney David Adams into a darkness where only the paranoid know how to get out alive.

Former up-and-coming hotshot attorney David Adams left his glamorous corporate law firm to fight for the disenfranchised. With a caseload of petty offenses, a meager office in a crumbling building, and little in the way of compensation, David needs a real case.

When he agrees to represent Rebel, David recognizes this will be the biggest challenge of his young legal career. The mentally unstable homeless man has been accused of murder, and the evidence of his guilt seems overwhelming. But it’s the victim who shakes David’s world: a county prosecutor who just happens to be an old law school friend. Rebel’s murky defense: a paranoid insistence on a CIA plot to silence the derelict.

Aided only by a "legal team" of misfit street friends and a fellow counselor lured into this dark web, David will risk everything to defend his client...who may not be nearly as crazy as he seems.

An open and shut case - or is it?

This is an excellent legal thriller. Between the publisher’s summary and the review by Wayne (Matthews, NC) there’s not much left for me to say. But I did want to leave a review in support of this outstanding book.
Also, if you have kindle unlimited this book is free to borrow with the kindle edition.
Christopher Ryan Grant does a wonderful job narrating.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Superb legal thriller!

AN UNEQUAL DEFENSE is the second novel in the David Adams legal thriller series by attorney and author Chad Zunker. The series is set in Austin, Texas. The series novels are standalone but listening to An Equal Justice first is very helpful. The publisher's summary is excellent so I will not add to it. Narration is outstanding. I very highly recommend this series

Chad Zunker's Sam Callahan series is also excellent.

Audible: An Unequal Defense is a legal thriller, not an espionage thriller!

Can't get enough

I am loving this series. I hate that I have to wait until February for the next book. This author and narrator are both new to me and I am glad that i stumbled onto them.

Fast-Paced, Well-Developed Characters

I loved this story. It was a great continuation to the book that introduced us to the protagonist, David Adams. I won't provide any spoilers, but I will say that if Chad Zunker writes a book, I will read it. The characters are well-developed so much so that the reader is given a sense of knowing the characters personally. I have read this book and listened to the narrator, Christopher Ryan Grant and I hope that he is chosen to read all of Chad Zunker's books in the future. The pacing, change of voice for different characters and clarity of his voice make for an excellent listen. I highly recommend this book!

Chad Zunker knows how to keep you on your toes

I enjoyed this story so much. It was totally different from the run of the mill books. Intertwining. mystery, corruption ,humanity, All tied in a bow or morality and love for your fellow man
The narrative was one of the best yet. Don't pass this read up.

Another great Zunker creation

Chad Zunker is one of my favorite authors. I am hooked from the beginning of the story. This book like his previous ones has multiple twists, turns and action to keep me listening nonstop and he accomplishes it without the use of any profanity or other unnecessary lude descriptors. I'm looking forward to every book he writes.

An interesting thriller with many twists

The characters are likable, except for the vilains... The violence is kept to a reasonable level. Nothing too graphic or gratuitous. Our hero doesn’t get beaten up multiple times. No sappy romance is added to the mix. The plot revolves around corruption and coverup in Austin, Texas. It involves the mayor, the local police, the D.A. It is not very original, but the and the development and the writing are good.
The narrator is excellent.
