The Color of Law by Mark Gimenez: This is a first novel by Gimenez dated 2005. I know now that he has written more. This author is fantastic.
Big time lawyer A. Scott Fenney works for a big-time law firm in Dallas. He has it all: Mansion in the posh Highland Park, a beautiful wife, lovely daughter, a membership in several ritzy clubs, a 6 figure salary, and many other perks. He risks it all to prove a South Dallas hooker/ drug addict is innocent of murder. Does he get the job done. Go to your nearest bookseller or library and find out. I want to read more by this up and coming author.
