Michael AggerA Cure for Night is the first novel from Justin Peacock, a young lawyer turned writer. That's a fine tradition, and Peacock makes a discerning choice of mentor. He forgoes the flashier precincts of John Grisham, where all is conspiracy and the legalese is leavened with bombs and gunplay, and heads toward Scott Turow country, where characters get enmeshed in the murky, moral corners of the actual law…you're not hiring Justin Peacock to be Bret Easton Ellis or Richard Price. He's all about the law, and based on his work here, he's got a good chance to make partner.
