The Last DefenseBook - 2002
Mercer Early, a young litigator at the most prestigious African-American law firm on the West Coast, has everything going for him. That is, until a labyrinthine murder case drops into his lap-and threatens the pillars on which his many laurels rest. An incisive look at criminal justice and race relations, this novel will challenge your assumptions about guilt and innocence-and keep you turning pages until the very end.
