A Tale of Two Lawyers is a novel that chronicles the professional and personal lives of two Chicago attorneys - Mel Foster and Jerry Sloan - as they follow divergent pathways, beginning as law school roommates and continuing through their colorful, contrasting legal careers. Love and marriages come and go in the progression of their lives, but one woman becomes of key importance in the final confrontation that ends their careers - successfully and happily for one, and ignominiously for the other.About the author: Barry J. Freeman has been a Chicago litigator for over 47 years (now retired). He writes from his experience as a participant and observer, exposing the practice of law as it has changed from noble profession to a dog-eat-dog, money-grubbing business, driven by a widespread, flagrant, unethical lawyer/client conflict of interest - hourly billing. 1.

Scarsella spices [his tale] with saucy language when needed and street lingo where appropriate. He keeps the suspense at high level until the answers unfold. - The Buffalo News (May 31, 2015) Lawyers Gone Bad is the story of beleaguered attorney and disciplinary counsel, Dean Alessi, and his trusty investigator, Stu Foley, in their fight against lawyers who have gone bad; that is, lawyers who commit ethical and criminal wrongs. They are investigating the case of the local district attorney who may have committed the ultimate ethical crime of murder. Vincent Scarsella draws on his over 18 years of real-life experience as head of the Eighth Judicial District Grievance Committee in Buffalo, New York, to craft a gripping, suspenseful tale about lawyers who have gone bad. More than a crime story, this tale concerns friendship, loss, unrequited love, and ultimately, justice. It seeks to answer the question: Does what goes around, come around? Lawyers Gone Bad follows on the success of Vincent Scarsella’s debut crime novel, The Anonymous Man. "The Anonymous Man gets decent marks for creativity and intricacy...it's a fast read that runs through familiar local settings to a satisfying conclusion. Scarsella has the makings of a good storyteller...he and [Jack] Fox could go places." - The Buffalo News "I am really enjoying reading this book so far." - Krystal H. (March 7, 2016) "Lawyers Gone Bad is so good!" - Gary L. Hosking (January 1, 2015) "Fantastic plot!" - Harry J Gawronski (April 8, 2015) Thank you for your interest.

Moneyball reveals a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of Major League teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors. In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win.... How can we not cheer for David? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Brick.

Hapless criminal John Dortmunder returns in another rollicking tale of disorganized crime from Grand Master of Mystery Donald E. Westlake. It's the score of a lifetime: easy access to a lavish New York City apartment, hordes of valuables, and an absentee owner avoiding the lawyers of his unhappy ex-wives. But before they pull the job, Dortmunder's crew is startled to find their beloved gin joint, the OJ, in the clutches of the Mafia - who consider it perfect for a little fraud, courtesy of a nice big fire. For tactical and highly superstitious reasons, the fate of the OJ is even more important to the crew than the enormous score. Now, Dortmunder and his gang are determined to split their time, fighting the mob, and robbing the rich simultaneously. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dufris.

On an ordinary January afternoon, a disturbing revelation about his wife hurls one man into a maelstrom of public humiliation and heartbreak, and eventually on a spree of run-ins with lawyers, judges, therapists, and law enforcement. Land of July tells the true story of a teacher/student sex scandal that not only shocked an entire school and small suburban community, but made national news. It’s a story filled with countless anecdotes about marriage, trust, infidelity, grief, and the desperate search for hope and family in the face of ruin. Practically ripped from the daily headlines, Land of July is as salacious as it is sobering. At its best, it’s a cautionary tale that might just inspire an awakening of morality; at its worst, it’s one man’s tumultuous journey to hell...and possibly back. 1. Language: English.
