Unconscionable: A Rich Coleman Novel by William Manchee

In Volume III of the Rich Coleman Novels, Rich’s son Ryan finally graduates from law school and is anxious to start practicing law. While in law school he met and fell in love with Amanda, a classmate who doesn’t want to practice law but has her sights set on becoming a literary agent. When Ryan hears of this, he remembers that his father had written a book about the murder of Martha Collins, his mother's aunt. He tells Amanda about the book, and she is ecstatic with the prospect of it being her first placement.

While Amanda schemes to get Rich’s book published, Matt Coleman petitions the court to overturn his conviction for bankruptcy fraud so he can get his law license back. Matt tries to help him as he wants Matt to begin a crusade against predatory mortgage lenders who are pillaging consumers all across the nation. The need to get Matt reinstated becomes more urgent when a client comes in with a great case for the firm to prosecute, and Rich recruits a mole in the loan servicers’ organization who wants to help bring Reliable Mortgage Servicing down.

During all this Matt, although convinced he’ll never fall in love again after his first wife, Lynn, is murdered, strikes up a relationship with an escort named Candy. The relationship starts off as more of a friendship than anything but just when it seems to be blossoming into a love affair, Candy is kidnaped, and Matt wonders if his second love will suffer the same fate as Lynn,

I just finished reading Unconscionable by William Manchee. This is third book in the Richard Coleman series. Now i have to read the first 2 books in the series, so reading the third is something I usually would never do, I was interested in it, and when I was given a copy to read, I thought why not. And I was not disappointed. This book is a thriller with a legal plot, added to the whole family drama. Rich Coleman is a lawyer, with 2 sons. His one son, Ryan, is a recent graduate from law school and his other son, Matt, who has some issues and was convicted of bankruptcy fraud. He has gotten the convictions over turned and is now trying to get his license reinstated. Rich wants to go after the mortgage industry and wants is son on is side. While Matt is trying to get his license back, Rich has infiltrated the mortgage company, when suddenly, Matt’s new girlfriend, Candy Kane, who runs an escort service, is kidnapped. While all of this is going on, the other son’s girlfriend, Amanda is becoming a literary agent. Once upon a time ago, Rich had written a crime story about the murder of his wife’s aunt. Amanda is determined to have to book published, despite Rich adamantly against it. There is no need to worry about being able to keep up, with not reading the other books, as this books feels like a complete novel in itself, while tying into the complete series. The author does a great job of detailing each character for people who might not be familiar with the other books. The book is thrilling grabs your attention right away. It is a wonderful read that will include a thriller, drama, with even a it of love added in.

Personally I enjoy thrillers that are as true to life as you can get. I especially enjoy those with a legal twist which is exactly what this book was about. This is the third book in the series but you will not feel like you are lost in the story line if you have not read the other two. This story is a novel in itself. The author William does a great job at really developing the characters and getting you to really know them. Regardless of your thoughts of attorney's, you see these characters as real everyday people like you and me who have similar problems. You also get a a great basic lesson in legality without loosing sight of the events. Overall a really good read that will make it hard for you to put down.

Do you like thrillers? How about thrillers with a legal twist? Well, if you do, then Unconscionable, by author William Manchee, is the book for you! This is the third installment of the Richard Coleman series of books and although I did not read the other two books, it was perfectly fine and not necessary. This book revolves around Richard Coleman (a lawyer) who has two sons; Matt has a very complicated past; His first wife Lynn was murdered and now he is in a relationship with Candy Kane (yep, you saw that right!) who owns an escort service. He is also a man on a mission to get his law license back having earlier been convicted of bankruptcy fraud. He is in a bit of a hurry to get this conviction overturned, because his dad has a case that he wants to prosecute against Reliable Mortgage Servicing who they feel are using unlawful predatory practices to get customers all over the world. While Matt fights his conviction, his dad Rich places a mole inside the mortgage lending company – which may prove to be detrimental to their family, and most especially to his new girlfriend Candy who has now been kidnapped. The other son Ryan has just graduated from law school along with his girlfriend Amanda. Amanda wants to become a literary agent and becomes very intrigued by a story that Ryan tells her. His father Rich had written a crime story at one time that was about the murder of his wifes’ aunt Martha – and Amanda sets out to get it published to help her career. However, Ryans dad Rich does not want any part of it; but this doesn’t keep Amanda from scheming to get it done! Not only is this book about intrigue and murder, but there is also a great love story mixed in there. There are many small stories going on and I found myself re-reading some chapters to make sure I kept up. Not a biggie! I still really liked the book and found it very enjoyable.

In UNCONSCIONABLE, lawyer Rich Coleman has two sons -- Ryan, who just graduated from law school and Matt, a former lawyer who was convicted of bankruptcy fraud. Matt's conviction was overturned and he is now on a mission to get his law license back. Rich hopes Matt will join his crusade against predatory mortgage lenders. Meanwhile, Ryan's girlfriend Amanda, who also graduated from law school, is seeking to become a literary agent. Ryan tells her about a true crime story written by his father about the murder of his mother's aunt. Intrigued, Amanda wants to get the story published and cement her first book deal. But, Rich does not want that to happen. Throw in the murder the Matt's first wife Lynn and his new relationship with escort service owner Candy Kane, you got one heck of a legal thriller. To me, the main story was the mortgage lenders. I could clearly envision the scenarios that were written and imagine how I would feel or what I would do in those cases. Author William Manchee did a wonderful job in making it a gripping read. Normally, I would not think of mortgage lending as an intriguing plot line, but Manchee proved me wrong. But, I LOVE legal thrillers. Manchee does an excellent job with character development and keeping the pace of the story. It never gets too dull. It also never gets too complex that you lose sight of what's going on. One thing that I was worried about is that this is the third book in the Rich Coleman novels. I was very concerned that I would not understand what was going on, but was pleasantly surprised that I did not need the first two books. One thing I will say, those first two are on my "to read" list. The bad side of this book was a large amount of grammatical errors. Words were missing, wrong words were used. That would usually send up big red flags for me, but I was able to overlook them and keep on reading. If you like legal thrillers, definitely get this book. All in all, 4 out of 5 stars.
