Growing up on the mean streets of New York City, Johnny and Mikey always had each other's back. Mikey was a loyal friend, but even he knew that Johnny was headed for bigger things. That's why he dubbed him the "Mayor of Lexington Avenue." The two friends were inseparable-until one fateful night set them on their different paths: Johnny to life as a high-powered lawyer in Miami, and Mikey to a shattered existence behind bars. Now, haunted by guilt over Mikey's conviction, and numbed by the excesses of a successful life, Johnny finds his one last shot at redemption: A young Florida man is framed for a murder he didn't commit, and Johnny feels compelled to fight for him-and, in a way, for Mikey. But there are powerful people who want the truth hidden, and Johnny will have to risk everything and everyone he cares about to save the young man...and himself.

Professional reviews

"This thought-provoking legal thriller evokes high emotions and courtroom excitement--both perfect for a narrator like Dick Hill. He handles the emotional scenes and the action without missing a beat. Hill brings the listener close to tears several times as he tells the story of a mentally challenged 19-year-old framed for murder and the efforts, to no avail, to free him. You want to cheer when the real perpetrators are brought to justice. Hill performs the multiple courtroom scenes explosively, keeping the listener on the edge. This work of fiction makes a strong case against the death penalty. Kudos also to the writer--the courtroom happenings are accurate to a fault. A.L.H.
