Known for his sharp mind, sharp suits, and bold courtroom strategies, Bronx-native Barry Slotnick is known as the best criminal lawyer in the US.
He calls himself "Liberty's Last Champion."
Slotnick mediates Bette Midler's bathhouse contract and represents John Gotti, "The Dapper Don." He defends "Subway Shooter" Bernie Goetz and negotiates future First Lady Melania Trump's pre-nup.
His unparalleled legal brilliance defines a profession, a city-and an era.

No character development. Just a long litany of law cases by this egotistical lawger. The most boring James Patterson ever!!
Hirschel S. Adler
This is a biography of Barry Slotnick, lawyer to mob bosses, mob characters and Barry Goetz, the NYC subway shooter. It is a collection of stories about his court cases with great attention to the defendent and his lawyer. There was not a single page that i found not to be fascinating.

I normally love James Patterson’s books but I prefer his fiction over non fiction. Nothing in this book surprised me… I mean I already watch ID channel and Law and Order…lol
Great bio of Barry Slotnik. Would have liked to hear about more cases. Way too much material on the Bernie Goetz trial.
