Review: Conflicts with Interest by Michael Ruddy

In Conflicts with Interest, the underdogs, T.R. Morgan and his son, Ryan, of Morgan Homes, Inc. find themselves unfairly targeted by big business and entangled in a builder's worst nightmare when they are served papers concerning Defect Litigation. Confronted by the Bay Area's shrewdest attorney they quickly find themselves in over their heads with insurance companies, lawsuits and the secrets behind closed doors. Having worked in the construction industry for over forty years, Ruddy weaves an ample amount of realism into the story as it gathers speed and rounds the bend to an ending that no one would have expected, least of all T. R. and Ryan.

Received from the publicist for review.

This one gets three stars. It had an interesting premise, but wasn't really engaging. I didn't really connect with or care about the characters and their problems. The rather dense language also included lots of legal terminology which was a bit overwhelming at times. This felt like more of a "guy" type book to me, but fans of legal thrillers should enjoy it.

★★☆☆ = Liked It

Wow, this one does sound interesting! There seems to be a lot going on here. I'm sad to hear it wasn't engaging.
