MIPTC occasionally gets advance copies of books to read, and one showed up in my inbox through the comments to this blog. It's Solomon v. Lord, available September 2005. I started laughing on page two; I'm halfway through the book and haven't stopped yet. Author Paul Levine is a lawyer who's written the book for general consumption, but lawyers won't be able to put it down. It's a startlingly accurate portrayal of criminal trial lawyers and the judicial system, and a compelling read. You won't go wrong if it's the only book you take on vacation.
You'll get an inside book on the law and enjoy every page. Levine is a cross between Grisham and Leno, and the book shows it.
