Attorneys' silence keeps innocent man in prison for 26 years—in real life.

Every once in a while, there’s a news story that grabs me. And when it touches upon the very issue that’s at center of SILENT COUNSEL—attorney/client confidentiality—it’s of particular interest.



This past Sunday, 60 Minutes aired a segment about a 26-year secret that kept an innocent man in prison—because two lawyers who knew that his claim of innocence was true considered themselves legally bound to remain silent. They knew that the convicted man, Alton Logan, was innocent because… Continue

SILENT COUNSEL nominated for Arty Award

I’ve been looking forward to attending the Left Coast Crime convention in Denver (March 6 – 9), for the opportunity to hook up with old friends—especially the great group of people I met in Anchorage at Bouchercon—and to make new ones.

This week, I found out that I have another reason to anticipate the event: SILENT COUNSEL has been…

SILENT COUNSEL vs. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD? I've gotta crow!

I never thought I'd be quoting Peter Pan, but in view of what I learned last night, I've gotta crow!

SILENT COUNSEL is now the No. 3 bestselling legal thriller on Amazon, behind only John Grisham's THE APPEAL, and Harper Lee's TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD.

What awesome company!

I want to thank each and every one of you that's helped make this possible....

Borders

Paramus, NJ

The day started on Long Beach Island, where Sylvia and I usually enjoy a nice, quiet, post-season week by the ocean. That’s the secret, of course. Do it after Labor Day. LBI summers, for sure, have their good points, but they have the crowds, too. Late September, though, is just…

Borders

Scarsdale, NY

Let’s face it. Summer’s almost gone. There aren’t too many beautiful, sunny days left in the season, so the magnificent weather on Wednesday afternoon made the drive out to Scarsdale a treat. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to be on my motorcycle—but…

Barnes & Noble #2609

Freehold, NJ

Today brought me to Barnes & Noble in Freehold, NJ, just outside the Freehold Raceway Mall—and next door to the famed Jersey Freeze, a notable hot spot (uh, cool spot?) for great sundaes.…

Mendham Books

Mendham, NJ

A little closer to home, Mendham Books is a pleasant independent bookstore in Morris County. Sylvia and I have visited there numerous times when Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark have been there signing, so it was a bit of a rush to be sitting behind the table I’ve…

SILENT COUNSEL tour is taking shape!

With the release of SILENT COUNSEL just two months away, the calendar is filling up pretty quickly with signings. I'll be starting here in the New York/New Jersey area, and then heading out west to Bouchercon at the end of September. What a great opportunity to then stop in at places in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and California (with the possibility of adding stops in Nevada and Arizona) before heading back home.

Here's what the schedule looks like so far. Hope you'll be able to make…
