A trio of cold-blooded murders and a case that must be won put morality and ethics in question. J. Bradley Crawford, a criminal attorney, is hired to defend Kenny Froemmer, charged with assault.
Curtis and Alice Waverly Froemmer are impressed with Brad; they promise most if not all of their legal business upon an acquittal. If he wins this case, Brad will net an additional six hundred thousand dollars per year with a percentage cut of the Froemmer business with totals of over a million dollars annually. To an attorney who had agonized over his monthly expenditures, the temptation prompted a fateful decision. An infantry tour of Viet Nam taught Brad Crawford to kill coldly and efficiently. To guarantee acquittal, the lawyer kills three witnesses to the assault. His client is now charged with the murders that the attorney has committed. Brad plans the murders for a Saturday night when the Froemmers host a party at their mansion. He purposely implicates the Froemmer’s son, Kenny, yet giving him an airtight alibi. The plan should leave the police with three unsolvable crimes.
Crawford faces a national media trial as a decided underdog. He appears confident in public, but the pressure is enormous.
The trial pits an attorney who must win against an unseasoned prosecutor. The trial judge is brilliant with a salty sense of humor who keeps the trial moving at a fast pace. A chilling novel.
“NT GILTY a guaranteed page-turner, the novel asks what we’ve all been pondering: How far will a defense attorney go to acquit his client and promote himself. . . talk about suspense! it’s almost impossible to put the book down, as one wonders if and how justice will be served.” The Observer, Plymouth, Michigan
“A Southfield attorney combines law and fiction to create a thrilling brew. It is chock-full of good stuff — wealth, greed, sex and fast cars . . .” The Detroit Jewish News
