Publisher's Summary

When Paul Forte is indicted by a federal grand jury, everyone suspects prosecutor Bernard (don’t call him “Bernie”) Kilroy has more on his mind than justice. Then the FBI agent in charge of Paul’s case gives him a clue to the mystery: Kilroy is bent on settling an old family score, and he’s not above breaking the law to do it.

My review posted to Audible and other sites:

Diary of a Small Fish by Pete Morin is a riveting political thriller. Set in Boston, MA. Pete has pulled out all the punches in this novel about how those behind the scenes seem to always be the ones pulling the strings to get what they want. Lobbyist and other concerned parties. Found that this novel kept my attention from start to finish. The characters were all well written into a suspenseful drama of cat and mouse. But, it actually ended up with the mouse trapping the cat. I actually listened to it in 2 days. 

The main character Paul Forte finds himself in trouble. He is counsel of Boston’s MBTA and representative. He is subpoenaed to give testimony against another representative. Only to find himself days later being in the same shoes. Why? For playing too much golf? All Paul could think of was “Are they for real!” His wife of 10 years leaves him and now he meets this beguiling woman who/becomes his girlfriend. She has a past that Paul just wants some answers to since she is not ready to leave him in her bed. 

Then there is Bernard Kilroy from his father’s past. He is now his enemy. Why? How does his part play into this indictment that ends up dragging on for a year? Paul’s attorney plays his part but, Paul wants to dig deeper. Why would golfing get him landed into the slammer. So he went golfing with lobbyist and others. Is that a crime? This all plays out well for a time for the prosecution. However, Paul is not taking this sitting down by his lawyer’s rules. He is going to find out who is behind this and that is where an FBI agent in the investigation slips some suggestions to Paul. 

This book will leave you routing for Paul all the way thru. How he finally finds out the truth behind his girlfriend and how their relationship grows. How Paul’s ex-wife reenters the picture due to cancer. How this helps build the bound between his girlfriend and Paul. Their love for his ex-wife thru her medical care. I felt myself welling up inside.

So whether you read this book or listen to it you will find yourself not wanting to put the book down. Narrator, Keith Sellon-Wright was dead on with the New England accents. He played thru each part seamless with a first rate performance. I know he is on my list of narrators to watch for in other books. As the author for I will be putting his books on my wish list.
