Jailhouse Lawyer

Two gripping legal thrillers

'Nobody does it better' Jeffrey Deaver

Two brand-new legal thrillers in one book - from the authors of Juror No. 3

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.
