John Martel, New York Times bestselling author of Partners, Conflict of Interest, The Alternate, and Billy Strobe, returns with his first legal thriller in five years, The American Lawyer ($26.95). This time around, a young, idealistic lawyer is handed a murder case that will either make his career--or kill him. Moving from the luxurious offices of the Bay Area to the dangerous streets of Central America, The American Lawyer is a stunning legal thriller that will thrill Martel’s many fans and earn him scores of new ones. John Martel is an ex-U.S. Air Force pilot, a lawyer in the San Francisco Firm of Farella Braun & Martel, and a veteran of more than one hundred trials (with only four losses). He has been hailed by the National Law Journal as one of the top ten trial lawyers in America.
