"Kenneth Eade’s novel is much more than it seems to be at first glance: it’s not just a fast-paced story; it is a contemporary courtroom drama that raises important questions about tolerance, prejudice, and violence in American society. Readers will think about these questions and the characters’ choices long after they will have finished the book." - 3 tags
"An insightful and thought provoking look into the politics of the criminal justice system."-InD'Tale Magazine
"In 'Unreasonable Force', Kenneth Eade manages to tackle some important topics for today's American society: tolerance, prejudice, violence, self-defense. Readers will immediately relate to the main characters and try to find answers to the intriguing questions their actions raise. Yes, 'Unreasonable Force', is a fast-paced, action-packed legal thriller, but it's also much more than that. It speaks directly to the readers, drawing their attention towards what's happening in reality, around them, each day of their life."- NY Books Examiner
"Eade is not only a brilliant writer; he also calls attention to the atrocities that surround us, hiding in our own closets. He has carved his niche and thankfully is continuing this series. Once you read an Eade legal thriller you can only be eager for more. Highly recommended."- Grady Harp, Literary AficionadoWhat readers are saying
"A brilliant courtroom drama that focuses on relevant issues of racism, prejudice and police brutality and explores them in a thoughtful way."-Jane R.
"This was an excellent book, once I got started I could not put it down. I got so involved I shouted out in the heat of the courtroom battles several times. Write another book please. Gordon Cooper
" I've read from critics and readers alike that he's the next John Grisham. I happen to be a John Grisham fan myself, especially when he's on a soapbox due to one social injustice or another. What sets Eade apart from Grisham is, although his books all have a backdrop of current social issues, he doesn't get on the soapbox. Instead he lays out his case like diamonds in a jewelry case and says, have a look for yourself. In my opinion, Kenneth Eade is a better writer than most lawyers turned authors, including Grisham, and the material is meticulously covered." George S. Stone
"This was a one of a kind courtroom thriller that deals with the subject of the right of self defense as well as potential police brutality. I was eager to see what it was all about and as I started reading I liked its perspective and the attention to realism. Definitely a fun and imaginative story that has kept me excited reading it until the very end. Thumbs up."
