Superb courtroom action! Good characters. Comfortable writing style.
This is a rare find and a great debut novel. Intriguing plot, unusually insightful courtroom strategy. I can't wait for Teller's next Jaywalker novel. I do not envy him the task of matching his debut!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Interesting characters, nice plot twists
I've read a lot of legal thrillers, and this one is pretty original. The protagonist, Jaywalker, is one cool cat. But he definitely met his match with his latest client, Samara Moss, who just happens to be a beautiful gold digger who is accused of murdering her rich husband. The pacing of the story is great, and the characters are well written. I enjoyed this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

His last client is twenty something Samara Morsi she who allegedly killed her sexagenarian multi-billionaire spouse with a knife through his heart. The evidence overwhelming points to her having murdered her husband of eight years to inherit his money and collect on insurance. As he begins to believe she did the crime, he feels certain he will go out a loser his ninety plus acquittal rate meaningless. Still Jaywalker struggles to give his best even as his client refuses to say anything except she is innocent.---------------- THE TENTH CASE is a fabulous legal thriller starring an interesting attorney whose outlook on defending his clients is much different than the typical literature lawyer. Besides a fascinating lead, the courtroom sequences and other legal wrangling that make up much of the novel will grip the audience as both Jaywalker and ADA Burke are consummate professionals. This is must reading for sub-genre fans.------------ Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
