Free LAWYERS (At Least For a Little While)

Thanks to everyone who made the recent promotion for THE DEVIL'S RIGHT HAND such a resounding success. So much so, that I'm now offering another e-book, LAWYERS, GUNS AND MONEY, FREE for the next day or so.

Andy Cole has a pretty good life. Oh, sure, he's got two ex-wives to support and maybe he's a little too fond of good bourbon, but he's got a thriving law practice and he's one of the movers and shakers in the town of Blainesville.

Then local crime boss Voit Fairgreen drops a bag full of cash on Andy's desk. Voit's brother Danny's been charged with murdering a troubled young barmaid, and Voit figures Andy's the kind of inside guy that can get Danny out of the jam.

That's where things start to unravel.

Someone in this town wants the truth buried, and Danny along with it. But Andy's discovering that Danny just may be innocent. And for someone like Andy, an innocent client is the worst thing in the world...

Will Andy Cole, the insider, a guy who's always gone along to get along, risk everything, including his own life and the life of the woman he loves, to get at the truth?

I don't like to pick favorites among my books, but if I did, LAWYERS, GUNS AND MONEY would be one of mine. I drew on a lot of my own experiences as a small town trial lawyer writing it (although my life's not nearly as interesting as Andy's) and some of the best lines are things I've actually heard. This book also got one of my absolute favorite Amazon reviews of all time, from Steve Malley, a fan from New Zealand:

I'm writing this review from the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake. Long days of shoveling silt and shifting rubble are tiring as hell, but Lawyers Guns and Money still kept me up late, reading first by electric headlamp until the power was restored. I was so engrossed, I barely noticed the aftershocks!

Now THAT is a good review.

Lawyers Guns and Money is free till tomorrow night. Check it out.
