Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Exceptionally good…Tanenbaum has infused this book with a strong collection of characters, a raunchy energy that crackles in the out-of-office lawyer talk, and a basic sense of outrage at a system that is failing miserably.” Publishers Weekly
“As it explores Karp’s private life and colorful coworkers, this fascinating, realistic novel addresses several legal issues: plea bargaining, overcrowded dockets, and the insanity defense.” Library Journal
