    For John Grisham Fans

    Scott Douglas Gerber's debut legal thriller reads like an early John Grisham novel but with a unique voice. Gerber brings his experience as both a former law clerk to a federal judge and a law professor to the substantive themes of the novel: the shattered idealism of a young lawyer and the impact of pornography on those who participate in it. The Law Clerk is also a surprisingly touching love story. I highly recommend it.

    Educational novel

    This is a whimsical but serious story that needs to be told. It has fast action, good scenic descriptions of Boston and Rhode Island, legal background, and pornography and how it ruins lives.

    Calling all Grisham fans!

    I read an advance copy of Scott Douglas Gerber's debut legal thriller. It's fast-paced, well written, informative, and set in interesting locales. It's a must buy for legal thriller fans who enjoy exciting stories. (It's also heartbreaking.)
