#1 Amazon Bestselling Author

Join Thaddeus Murfee in his new career in Flagstaff, where he is called on to defend the wife of the District Attorney. She has shot her husband to death and admitted it—but what about the mysterious bite marks in all the wrong places?

Watch as sixteen-year-old Turquoise Begay comes on the scene, the beautiful, abandoned Navajo girl living reservation style—with all the wrong people.

An adventure into the real world of criminal law, setting a new standard for legal thrillers, DEFENDING TURQUOISE is the riveting story of one lawyer’s attempt to redeem himself, one wife’s attempt to free herself, and one young girl’s hope of a new life after years of unspeakable abuse.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I always enjoy books by John Ellsworth, this one was no exception. I love the trial portions best. Accurate, smart and page turning!


I am a new reader of John Ellsworth’s books and I can’t get enough. The stories, although fiction, comes to life throughout the chapters, and it’s as if you know the characters personally. There are many “Turquoises” in this world, thank you for bringing it to light.


I look forward to reading every book in this series. They can stand alone or be read in order. The story lines are that strong. The characters are very well developed and believable. I like how carefully the author uses any form of bad language and sexual scenes. This book was great from beginning to the end.


I absolutely love his writing, so full of twists and turns. His characters are so colorful and truly interesting. I look forward to his next book while I am still reading the current one. He takes us to new areas of the country and introduces us to new ways of life. His sensitivity is on point. Hope he keeps writing for a long time.


John Ellsworth is such a talented writer. He writes awesome novels. I look for him to soon become one of the ten bestselling authors!!!! Once you read the first few pages, it is hard to put the book down. That is why I gave the book fives stars.

About The Author

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? I, LAWYER is John’s first Christine Susmann book and was published in May 2015. It is the story of a college fraternity party and its aftermath.

“I love writing these books.They are the kinds of books I love to read, full of information about a wide spectrum of characters, lots of dialogue, and, as always, plenty of action and traps for the young attorney. The books represent the kind of learning experience I went through when I was Thaddeus’ age and learning how to patty-cake when it came to doing the right thing for clients.”

Now…back to the work-in-progress: Where was Christine again? Oh, yes, she was….
