This has to be one of the best "lawyer" books I have ever read. It was the first time I read this author and I will definetly be looking for more of his books. Absolutely wonderful reading!
A powerful legal thriller debut. A young Florida man is framed for murder and Johnny feels compelled to fight for him, and for his
long time childhood friend Mikey. But there are powerful people who want the truth hidden, and Johnny will have to risk everything and everyone he cares about to save the young man - and himself.
I recomend it highly if you love legal thrillers. This is great.
Author is Jack Sheehan who was a trial lawyer for 28 years. Great first book! I couldn't put it down. Will be watching for future books by this author!
From the first few chapters I thought I knew how it was going to end but I was wrong and pleasantly surprised.
Oh please. The story itself is interesting, but don't read this for the characterizations, they are wooden. Interaction between them on a personal level is downright embarassing.
A different twist on an innocent man wrongly convicted.
A lawyer book with a twist. Great story, well told. Holds your interest all the way through.
Growing up on the mean streets of New York City, Johnny and Mikey always had each other's back. Mikey was a loyal friend, but even he knew that Johnny was headed for bigger things. That's why he dubbed him the "Mayor of Lexington Avenue." The two friends were inseparable-until one fateful night set them on their different paths: Johnny to life as a high-powered lawyer in Miami, and Mikey to a shattered existence behind bars. Now, haunted by guilt over Mikey's conviction, and numbed by the excesses of a successful life, Johnny finds his one last shot at redemption: A young Florida man is framed for a murder he didn't commit, and Johnny feels compelled to fight for him-and, in a way, for Mikey. But there are powerful people who want the truth hidden, and Johnny will have to risk everything and everyone he cares about to save the young manand himself.
