Death By Grand Jury And Other D.C. Stories features protagonists who are players in Washington, D.C.’s version of the American criminal justice system. Whether they are defense attorneys, defendants, detectives, witnesses, or student investigators, they are all struggling not so much to seek or provide justice as to make their way through each day with their integrity intact, and without failing those they are responsible for. The stakes are always high: coping with failure, avoiding burnout, conquering an addiction, staying alive, keeping others alive. The stories are set during a spectacularly violent era in D.C.’s history -– the 1980’s through the early 21st century –- yet these characters spend as much time on the streets and in the prisons of their suffering city as they do in the courtroom. They face capable adversaries, work in a landscape littered with pain, and labor in system that often seems indifferent to their efforts. Please note: All stories in this book are works of fiction. They are not accounts of or based upon actual cases.
