Book Review: 'Lawyer Brent Marks Legal Thriller Series Books 4-6' by Kenneth Eade

Kenneth Eade may be best known to readers as the author of BLESS THE BEES: THE PENDING EXTINCTION OF OUR POLLINATORS AND WHAT WE CAN DO TO STOP IT, and A BEE, SEE: WHO ARE OUR POLLINATORS AND WHY ARE THEY IN TROUBLE? - two superlative books about his concern for our environment, a topic he takes to the top level in his superb novels. Eade is an international business lawyer, based in Los Angeles, specializing in international law, Internet Law, appeals and complex litigation. He is a member of the Bar of California, the federal District Court for the Central District of California, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal. He holds a Juris Doctor in Law from Southwestern University School of Law, and a B.A. in Liberal Studies from California State University, Northridge. He is also an accomplished filmmaker and a freelance writer for the Los Angeles Daily Journal and an environmentalist.

And given this introduction is a surprise that he has added the crown of rising suspense thriller to his resume with in Legal Thriller Series. THE INVOLUNTARY SPY was his first, followed by PREDATORY KILL, and A PATRIOT'S ACT that moved into the world of terrorism and the military's treatment of suspects who may possibly have ties to one of the several countries with whom we are at odds in the Middle East, and in HOA WIRE the same level of legal suspense was played out in California – in the too believable realm of Home Owners Association flaws.

This very fine set of three books all deal with Kenneth’s now well known character Brent Marks (Marks is the Americanization of his true last name, Marquez, which indicates the flavor of these potentially controversial books), the lawyer who yearns for cases more interesting that those assigned to a `poor man's lawyer.' In these three novels – UNREASONABLE FORCE, KILLER.COM, and ABSOLUTE INTOLERANCE Kenneth is in top form as he uses his ‘created lawyer’ Brent Marks to demonstrate the very current controversy of police force, cyberstalkers, gay marriage and the high profile divorces, acknowledging the power of the press and the media yet in his own unique manner.

Said once and said again, Kenneth Eade is one of our strongest thriller writers on the scene and the fact that he draws his stories from the contemporary philosophical landscape is very much to his credit. Grady Harp, August 16
