Alex meets the mysterious Michael Ohlig , his fathers' best friend but unknown to Alex except as an almost legendary figure in his fathers' life. Michael asks Alex to represent him when he is about to be indicted for fraud against his Boutique brokerage firm. Alex and his co-worker Abby Sloane lead the case and are drawn into an dangerous relationship and uncover many skeletons from Michael's past and also Alex's. This is a well written first novel by Adam Mitzner, good character development, surprises and he knows the law. This would appeal to fans of "Scott Turow" and early "John Grisham".

The year is 2030 and America is broke and reeling from terrorist attacks and a mega earthquake that levels Los Angeles, to further the mess in 2014 a cure for cancer has the population living ever longer and causing a rebellion from those under 40. This satirical look at how the president and Americans deal with these not unlikely problems leads to an unusual alliance and somewhat hopeful resolution. I think this book would also appeal to all Albert Brooks fans as his humor shines through his writing.
