“An Innocent Client” opens attorney Joe Dillard having to deal with a suspect in jail who is a scumbag that he was appointed by a judge to defend. As the book proceeds along he is hired to defend a woman for the charge of murder where he is being paid a lot of money. Throughout the work Dillard continually would like to believe there is someone he defends that is innocent. Dillard is a sympathetic character because he has a mother suffering from Alzheimer’s, a drug addict sister who gets a new chance on life by coming to live with Dillard’s family but screws up by stealing from them and cases he would rather not take trying to do the best job under the circumstances. There also is a cop who will stop at nothing to convict someone while Dillard goes before judges who can’t stand him making “An Innocent Client” a page turner that is the first of a series.
