Con Law by Mark Gimenez
  

Lovereading view...

Very much an American thriller, it even has some preamble regarding America’s constitutional law but then the author is a lawyer. It stars John Bookman, also a lawyer only he teaches as well. It begins a series and concerns fracking, pollution and the disposing of waste. All very topical, all very frightening.

If you like Mark Gimenez you might also like to read books by Andrew Gross, Robert Crais and James Patterson.

Synopsis

Con Law by Mark Gimenez

John Bookman - Book to his friends - is a tenured professor at the University of Texas School of Law. He's thirty-five, handsome and unmarried. He teaches Constitutional Law, reduces senators to blithering fools on talk shows, and is often mentioned as a future Supreme Court nominee. But Book is also famous for something more unusual. He likes to take on lost causes and win. Consequently, when he arrives at the law school each Monday morning, hundreds of letters await him, letters from desperate Americans around the country seeking his help. Every now and then, one letter captures his attention and Book feels compelled to act.

Reviews

There cannot be any dispute. Gimenez has taken over John Grisham's mantle. His work is now faster and fresher than Grisham, his characters are stronger, and his plot lines reek of tomorrow's headlines. Daily Mail Gimenez does law mysteries every bit as good as John Grisham, and this latest effort won't disappoint fans of that master. Weekend Sport A fracking good read. The Times (South Africa)
