A startling ending has readers everywhere discussing this timely thriller.
If you’re a fan of sweeping sagas and legal fireworks, here’s one you won’t want to miss. Unspeakable Prayers is a book you will never forget.
John Ellsworth is from Arizona and practiced law nationwide. For thirty years he defended criminal clients across the United States. His first book, “The Defendants,” was published by Amazon and Subjudica House Press on January 20, 2014.
What’s next? THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER is John’s seventh Thaddeus book and will be published by Amazon in April 2015. It is the story of a skyjacking of an airliner carrying Thaddeus and Christine, his paralegal. Beside Thaddeus is Angelina Sosa, a recent journalism grad who’s out to make her mark. She decides the skyjacking might be a good enough story to win a Pulitzer Prize or write a New York Times Bestseller, so she tracks Thaddeus down after he rushes off the plane to help Christine when Russian Intelligence takes her off the plane when it sets down in Moscow. Does Angelina get her New York Times best seller? You’ll have to be the judge of that, but portions of her story are actually included as a book-within-a-book.
