When Peck O’Brien sets off for the office one morning, he is not prepared for the hailstorm that greets him. Peck O’Brien must apply the perfect salve for the terrible wrong for which he feels he is responsible. With client Scott Quiggly fighting for his life, Peck’s moral sense kicks in and he makes a seemingly ridiculous settlement offer. After announcing a sizable settlement to Quiggly’s family, Peck isn’t finished with his goal for compensation. His personal health-related project will definitely settle his conscience. He just needs support: financial and moral. Unfortunately there are forces, nasty forces, working against Peck’s intentions and plotting to keep him involved. With the loyalty of Nicole, his office assistant, Peck is faced with a difficult, if not frightening, situation. What can he do that doesn’t risk his own life?
Out of Air by S. Edward Lawrence is a fast paced, contemporary corporate thriller that deserves to stand on the shelf among the likes of John Grisham. Lawrence encompasses the standards of high quality fiction in this thought provoking tale full of entertaining dialogue and relatable characters. Although the main character attempts to represent admirable moral fiber, the reality of his situation is not lost on readers. The legal world too often attempts to overlook the innocent victims of work ethics in today’s world, while Peck focuses on the moral issues that plague the working class. I recommend this novel for both “beach” read and late evening by fire entertainment.
