The Four-Night Run
By William Lashner
“Opens with a blistering trial scene…After the razzle-dazzle opening, Lashner slips into a thoughtful reflection on the failings of the legal system…there is also lively action, great steamy sex, and witty dialogue. The phrasemaking is dazzling.”
~Booklist on The Four-Night Run
“Lashner melds a nightmarish vision of a city driven by greed and poverty with serious discussions of criminal law and its practice and its corruption.”
~Publishers Weekly on The Four-Night Run
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
J.D. Scrbacek is young, talented, and the best criminal lawyer money can buy. But after winning the biggest trial of his career, his victory ends in violence. At first, Scrbacek assumes the bomb that killed his assistant was meant for his monster-mobster client. But with a second attempt on his life, he comes to realize he’s a marked man.
On his own and on the run, Scrbacek seeks safety in Crapstown, the forgotten, run-down slum of the city. But when he gets there, he’s forced to face his past… if he ever wants to see his future. Scrbacek must argue for his life to a jury that would rather see him dead. Is he lawyer enough to save himself?
