Jailhouse Lawyer, James Patterson & Nancy Allen

Jailhouse Lawyer opening line: I wasn’t present at the courthouse in Erva, Alabama, on that morning in June, when events unfolded that would suck me into the undertow of Douglas County.

Jailhouse Lawyer

My blurb:

Martha’s primary concern is her son. And when her company forces her hand, she finds what seems to be the ideal job. She will be the Court Appointed Defence Attorney in Erva. A job that pays well, and has great benefits. But it comes at a very high cost. When Martha finds herself on the wrong side of the court house, she realizes why.

Jailhouse Lawyer
A young lawyer takes on the judge who is destroying her hometown – and ends up behind bars…
In picture-perfect Erva, Alabama, the most serious crimes are misdemeanors. Speeding tickets. Shoplifting. Contempt of court.
Then why is the jail so crowded? And why are so few prisoners released? There’s only one place to learn the truth.
Sometimes the best education a lawyer can get is a short stretch of hard time.
My verdict:

The fact that the storyline of this book could be reality, sickens me. A great read and the book includes a bonus novel: Power of Attorney.

Power Of Attorney opening line: As the sky began to lighten over the tree line just outside the city limits of Bassville, Arkansas, Amber Lynn Travis crept across the parking lot of a convenience store.
