"Lawyers Gone Bad," is the story of beleaguered attorney disciplinary counsel, Dean Alessi, and his trusty investigator, Stu Foley, in their fight against lawyers gone bad - that is, lawyers who commit ethical and criminal wrongs. In this case they're investigating the local District Attorney, who may have committed the ultimate ethical wrong - murder.
Novelist Vincent Scarsella draws on his over 18 years of real life experience as head of the Eighth Judicial District Grievance Committee in Buffalo, New York to craft a gripping, suspenseful novel about lawyers gone bad.
But the story is more than a crime novel. It concerns friendship, loss, unrequited love, and ultimately, justice. It seeks to answer the question, does what goes around, come around? "Lawyers Gone Bad," follows on the success of Vincent Scarsella's debut crime novel, "The Anonymous Man", about which The Buffalo News said: "'The Anonymous Man' gets decent marks for creativity and intricacy...it's a fast read that runs through familiar local settings to a satisfying conclusion. Scarsella has the makings of a good storyteller...he and [Jack] Fox could go places."
"Scarsella spices [his tale] with saucy language when needed and street lingo where appropriate. He keeps the suspense at high level until the answers unfold." - The Buffalo News
Praise for Scarsella's debute crime novel, The Anonymous Man:"The Anonymous Man gets decent marks for creativity and intricacy... Scarsella has the makings of a good storyteller...he and [Jack] Fox could go places." - The Buffalo News
