Court of lies / Spence, Gerry

New York Times bestselling author Gerry Spence is one of the greatest trial lawyers of our time. In his novel Court of Lies, Lillian Adams is going on trial for the murder of her wealthy husband before Judge John Murray. Prosecutor Haskins Sewell, however, is consumed by political ambition and sadistic hatred for the judge. Murray is everything Sewell isn't--both an honorable man and an incorruptible jurist. Sewell plans to advance his own career by framing Lillian and the judge, wrongfully convicting Lillian of murder in the first degree and then railroading the judge himself into prison. But he may have underestimated Murray. A fast-paced, up-all-night courtroom thriller, Court of Lies is also a harsh indictment of today's legal system. The country has 2.3 million people behind bars and 7.5 million more on parole or probation. A major reason for so much mass incarceration is the dominance of politically motivated prosecutors, who over-sentence defendants for the sake of winning votes in their own elections and advancing their careers.
