Exciting news!  "GONE AGAIN" is the 2017 WINNER of the HARPER LEE PRIZE for excellence in legal fiction.  The Harper Lee Prize is awarded by the ABA Journal and the University of Alabama School of Law. Lee commissioned the Prize to mark the 50th anniversary of  the publication of "To Kill a Mockingbird" publication in 1960.

More exciting news ... MOST DANGEROUS PLACE,  Jack Swyteck #13, IS NOW AVAILABLE  And yes, you can call this one a milestone.  It's NOVEL NO. 25 for me.  How many have you read?   


All the Best,



"One of his best .... Grippando gets underway with a bang and never lets up, springing a series of carefully calibrated surprises in and out of the courtroom guaranteed to catch even the canniest readers unaware."
