In a big law firm in San Francisco, a junior lawyer is thrown into the deep end with a complex and infuriating case concerning an inheritance. During this case, he must navigate the challenges of a complex legal system, demanding clients, and formidable adversaries. Along this journey, he’s helped by close friends and mentors and hindered by superiors and villains. As well as this, he faces personal problems and joys, including meeting the charming ex-model and cafe owner, Marybeth. Behind all these legal hurdles and personal relationships lies an intrigue that places the young lawyer and those close to him in the way of potential danger.
O’Brien’s Law by John McNellis follows the journey of hot-headed but ultimately extremely likable Michael O’Brien, a junior associate at the firm Drummond, Upton, and Isherwood. Even though it covers complicated legal matters and contains legal jargon and issues in the business world, it’s completely accessible to those with little former knowledge of these areas.
The story takes the reader through an exciting journey, covering themes such as justice, romance, and mystery. The plot is superbly well-crafted and packed full of unexpected twists and turns. Additionally, McNellis’ characters are fully fleshed out with their flaws and imperfections. The protagonist, Michael O’Brien, is a particularly well-portrayed character with whom it’s easy to empathize. The author’s writing style is engaging and integrates moments of comedic relief while becoming emotional at specific points. I would recommend this novel to those interested in a fun read that covers engaging legal issues.
O’Brien’s Law by John McNellis is an adrenaline-filled and fast-paced read that keeps the reader in the story and eager to discover what happens next. This is a romantic thriller that readers will not want to miss out on, as the suspense will have them hooked from the opening lines.
