Description

Jack Tobin, the main character of THE MAYOR OF LEXINGTON AVENUE returns in this non-stop novel that combines enthralling plot twists with some of the best coutroom fiction being written today.


Tobin, known as the lawyer's lawyer--the guy the best lawyer's say they'd want to represent them in a courtroom battle--undertakes the representation of a serial killer who he believes to be innocent. The Chief of Police is outraged, the citizens of Oakville where the murders occurred, erupt, and the State Attorney is out for blood as Jack challenges the criminal justice system once again.

Sheehan masterfully weaves stories of love and friendship into one man's uncompromising search for truth within the four corners of a courtroom where it is often spoken about but seldom seen. Jack is in a fight for his life and the outcome is in doubt right up to the turn of the final page.

A trial lawyer himself, James Sheehan is also a top-notch thriller writer. Once again he succeeds in translating the depth of his courtroom knowledge into an entertaining and truly fascinating read.

      • content:

        October 1, 2012
        In the opening of Sheehan’s exciting if clunky third legal thriller (after 2008’s The Law of Second Chances), a series of killings in the city of Oakville, Fla., in 1993 leads to the conviction of Thomas Felton for murder. Eight years later, famed Miami lawyer Jack Tobin, now living in the backwater town of Bass Creek, succeeds in getting Felton’s conviction overturned on a technicality. When Jack winds up on trial on trumped-up murder charges after the killer strikes again (a relative of a victim frames him), Jack turns to respected “lawyer’s lawyer” Tom Wylie to represent him. To complicate matters, Jack rejects Tom’s advice when it comes to his defense, because the evidence Tom wants to use will jeopardize the reputation of policewoman Danni Jansen, Jack’s former lover. Sheehan can write a mean closing statement when the courtroom showdown finally takes place, and the conflicting loyalties of Jack and Danni keep the tension high, but readers should be prepared for some wooden dialogue.

shortDescription

Celebrated Miami corporate attorney Jack Tobin was known in courtroom circles as a "lawyer's laywer", the guy the best lawyers say they'd want to represent them in a fight. Now retired from the high-powered Miami scene to the sleepy fishing town of Bass Creek, Tobin picks his high-profile pro bono cases based on their merit, and his gut. When he's brought in to fight the death row appeal for a serial killer, Tobin blows the prosecution's weak case wide open--wide enough for the convicted killer to go free. This big win turns out to be the biggest regret of Jack's career as he finds himself hunting the killer down before he strikes again.

The lawyer's lawyer then becomes the hunted when an out-of-control police chief who blames Tobin for his own destroyed life trumps up charges and arrests him for murder. Now Jack needs an attorney of his own and he turns to the only man he trusts with his life--legendary Tom Wylie. Together they present a powerful defense, but will...
