Welcome to Weekly Wonder. A weekly series in which we suggest books giving enough details for you to see if you would want to read it but without any spoilers.
This week’s wonder is:
THE GOOD LAWYER BY THOMAS BENIGNO
SO, WHAT’S UP WITH THE STORY?
When a young and ambitious lawyer is asked to represent the most prolific rapist of all as well as the rapist of two young boys, he must dig deep to find out the truth and uncover the secrets of his clients and his own family history. Will he have the strength to accept his Mafia legacy for justice? Read the book to find out!
A GLIMPSE BETWEEN THE PAGES
“I shook it. And it was dead calm.”
“Self-righteous, self-serving, self-pitying souls who had little excuse for their malcontent other than the selfish, unsatisfying lives they chose for themselves.”
“Like every child who returns home after a long absence, I did so, because I needed something.”
“Administrative Judge Ernie Krenwinkle was on the bench. Circus clown, stand-up comedian, traffic cop, court calendar clean-up wizard, never was there a more outrageous character to rule the Bronx Criminal Court.”
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT
- This book combines the legal genius of John Grisham and the Mafia mystery of Mario Puzo with the fast pace of Dan Brown.
- The book has four subplots all which are inter-connected.
- There are subtle feminist hints which I love.
- The ending.
I hope you like the book.
