Rough Justide - Days and Nights of a Young DA Author:David Heilbroner Advance Praise for Rough Justice: — "If TV or the movies have ever made you wonder what a big-city prosecutor's life is really like, this book is for you. It is an eloquent, low-key account of the horrors, tumult, and constant pressures of a life where too many have done too much that is wrong, and those who seek to enforce the laws live in a net... more »her world of their own. THe ambiguous relations between prosecutors and cops, the occasional humor of human misconduct, and the suppressed anguish of so many of the justice system's participants are all perfectly rendered. I read Rough Justice in a single sitting, impressed by its sane tone, its limpid prose, and its overall wisdom. It's a fine achievement." - Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent
"Rough Justice is a riveting and sensitive first-person account of life in the turnstile of inner-city justice. It is more interesting than 'People's Court,' and more realistic than 'L.A. Law.' Heilborner is that rare former prosecutor who understands all aspects of the system. Rough Justice lacks the self-righteousness of many prosecutorial accounts of the justice system. It is a must read for all law students, especially those intending to become prosecutors, and all citizens interested in our criminal justice mess." - Alan Dershowitz, Professor of Law, Harvard Law School« less
