About the Author

Carl Steinhouse, a retired lawyer, was a federal prosecutor for the United States Department of Justice for 15 years, conducting investigations and grand juries, trying criminal and civil cases, after which he went into private practice specializing in class actions, antitrust and RICO (racketeering influenced) cases, white-collar crime, and civil and criminal trials. In the early fifties, he served as an intelligence analyst in the Army Counterintelligence Corps.
Mr. Steinhouse was Vice Chairman of the Antitrust Section of the American Bar Association, and on the editorial boards of two Bureau of National Affairs publications in antitrust and RICO. He also wrote and edited books on grand jury practice, criminal trial practice, and criminal juries and was a frequent lecturer at ABA National Institutes and video courses on grand jury and criminal trial practice. He is a frequent contributor to the Naples Daily News writing about the humorous side of the law.
In the 80’s and 90’s he was active on an international level for the National Conference on Soviet Jewry, making several trips to Jerusalem and Helsinki on fact-finding missions and to the Soviet Union to aid Refusniks (those Jews the Soviets refused to let emigrate). A board member of the Cleveland Anti-Defamation League until 1999 and formerly on ADL’s National Legal Affairs and National Fact Finding Committees, he was active in ADL matters, including monitoring activities of hate groups.
Mr. Steinhouse, had lost family in German-occupied territory during World War II, and was personally affected by the Holocaust. He has published six books in his Holocaust series to rave reviews: Wallenberg is Here!, Righteous and Courageous, Improbable Heroes, Barred, We Shall Be Called Israel, and The Outfielder. The books received rave reviews from Holocaust scholars and authors. Harassment is Steinhouse’s first in his new legal thriller series, based on his experiences as both a prosecutor and defense attorney.
The author is happily married and lives in Naples, Florida, where he does his writing.

Great plot, perfect for fans of legal thrillers. Skeptics of the legal profession - who isn't included in that group? - will find plenty to confirm their ideas about the way big firm lawyers with unsavory clients operate in the shadow of the law. Two legal heroines give you attorneys to root for, as they pursue mob figures and their unscupulous lawyers in court and out. The author, a longtime Justice Department lawyer himself, brings his knowledge to bear in creating an exciting crime novel that feels rooted in the reality of the lives of prosecutors and investigators.

A thrilling ride with inside views of the justice department,RICO ,large law firms all interacting with the Mafia. At times it is brutal, sexy and always vastly entertaining. A terrific legal mystery.
