Publisher's Description

Jack Tobin, the main character of The Mayor of Lexington Avenue returns in this non-stop novel that combines enthralling plot twists with some of the best coutroom fiction being written today.

Tobin, known as the lawyer's lawyer--the guy the best lawyer's say they'd want to represent them in a courtroom battle--undertakes the representation of a serial killer who he believes to be innocent. The Chief of Police is outraged, the citizens of Oakville where the murders occurred, erupt, and the State Attorney is out for blood as Jack challenges the criminal justice system once again.

Sheehan masterfully weaves stories of love and friendship into one man's uncompromising search for truth within the four corners of a courtroom where it is often spoken about but seldom seen. Jack is in a fight for his life and the outcome is in doubt right up to the turn of the final page.

A trial lawyer himself, James Sheehan is also a top-notch thriller writer. Once again he succeeds in translating the depth of his courtroom knowledge into an entertaining and truly fascinating read.

Editorial Reviews

"Sheehan has written another thriller with some great courtroom scenes."
"[Sheehan] is especially good whenever he takes us into a courtroom.... Sheehan brings the three-way jousting of a criminal blazing life."
"As a writer, Sheehan, a former trial lawyer, bears comparison to Scott Turow: his books are noteworthy not just for their intricate plotting but also for their literary finesse."
"THE LAWYER'S LAWYER grabbed me from the beginning, and kept me ensnared the entire time. Full of engrossing characters, touching friendships, heart shaking twists and high stakes courtroom action, THE LAWYER'S LAWYER sets the bar quite high for this year's batch of Legal Thrillers."
Sheehan's latest novel reads like a hearty, delicious stew. As you dig into each bit of this legal mystery, you come away savoring each part. The plot is well crafted, the characters are authentic, gritty and sympathetic and the story's theme is crystal clear. Combined with Sheehan's efficient storytelling, this story moves the heart.
"Sheehan...writes with bleak clarity...but there's a touch of the poet in his voice."
"This is a debut novel but it reads like it was written by a master of the genre."
"Here's a legal thriller that's so good it instantly leaves Grisham and the gang choking on its dust..."
"To Kill A Mockingbird on steroids..."
"An assured, elegant, suspenseful courtroom thriller."

"Fast moving and tightly written...boasts a gripping story and characters who will make the reader care. Al in all, a stylish and engaging novel."

    This review was written for The Lawyer's Lawyer - eBook.
    A smart and entertaining thriller, "The Lawyer's Lawyer" is a book that is sure to please fans of legal-themed suspense novels. I've never had the chance to read a book by James Sheehan before, but I certainly enjoyed his latest offering, appreciating the fast-paced nature of the plot, the action filled pages, and the complex character of Jack Tobin. The author keeps the story moving along with one twist after another, and the courtroom scenes contain the element of realism, making it clear that the author knows exactly what he's talking about. I appreciated the deeper themes the author explores, such as the ethical dilemma around whether a lawyer should take on a case of defending a serial killer who may not be innocent, if there has clearly been a procedural injustice at work in his conviction. The characters in the Lawyer's Lawyer certainly aren't perfect, but there is much to admire in Jack's drive to represent truth and to act with utter loyalty. I also enjoyed the supporting characters in this book, who demonstrate what true friendship should look like. I must say that there was a bit more swearing than I expected from this publisher (Center Street), and the spiritual themes are definitely on the light side. But if you are looking for a well-written book that will have your pulse accelerating from start to finish, then you are definitely going to love this book.

    I award it 4.5 out of 5 stars. I look forward to future books from this talented author.
