Yale Law School graduate Justin Peacock's legal experience serves him well for this intense novel in the tradition of such genre luminaries as Scott Turow and Richard Price. A Cure for Night features Joel Deveraux, a former corporate-law hotshot whose downward slide finds him plying his trade at Brooklyn's Public Defender's office. Thrust into a high-profile case involving black-on-white crime, Joel quickly discovers he is in over his head.

"Despite being compared to the work of Scott Turow, this legal thriller is not compelling--nor is its narration. When a Yale Law School graduate loses his job at a prestigious law firm job because of a cocaine incident, he tries to redeem himself by working at the public defender's office at a fraction of his former pay. Soon he's involved with the defense of a man charged with murder. While narrator James Colby has a pleasant voice, his delivery is choppy. He frequently splits phrases meant to be read together and often provides dialogue attributions a second too late. After a short time, the listener becomes distracted from the story. A.L.H.
