    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!
    If you like this genre, do not miss The Tenth Case!

    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.

    The starred review in Publisher's Weekly drew me in

    and they sure had it right.<BR/><BR/>What a great character, Harrison Jay Walker, Esq., better known as<BR/>JAYWALKER. If I ever got in trouble, he's the guy I'd want.<BR/><BR/>The characters are great, the courtroom scenes are terrific and I<BR/>defy anyone to figure out the ending.<BR/><BR/>I look forward to BRONX JUSTICE, Teller's next book.

    a fabulous legal thriller

    The Judicial Panel informs Harrison J. ¿Jaywalker¿ Walker that he will be suspended from practicing law for three years. He pleads with the members to give him time to finish his cases. They tell him to pick 5 a do-gooder he offers 17 that is trimmed back to 10.--------------- Over the next nine months he completes nine of his cases. 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 Klausner
