Another Good Legal Thriller Featuring Jaywalker

  • May 2, 2010
Rating:
+3

Depraved Indifference is the third novel from Joseph Teller featuring the gritty defense attorney Harrison J. Walker, known by all as Jaywalker.

As followers of the series know, Jaywalker doesn’t mind walking an ethical tightrope to get his defendants acquitted, but he does have lines he won’t cross.  In this novel Jaywalker is brought into what a appears to be an open and shut case of manslaughter, as a drunken driver has run a bus load of kids off the road, killed them, and took off.  And there are credible witnesses.

In a rather diabolical and unbelievable turn of events, the drunk driver has an incredible excuse and his supposedly estranged wife backs him up on the story.  As the case unfolds, the reader has no idea what to believe, and what really happened we don’t discover until the very end.

Jaywalker novels are always great reads and Teller comes up with some of the most egregiously unethical characters for Jaywalker to defend, with wildly cockamamie stories that are most likely true to life.  And that makes the novels even more interesting to read.  While not my favorite of the three novels it is entertaining and well written.

About the reviewer
About this book

Wiki

An Audi sports car, speeding on the wrong side of the road, forces an oncoming van off the road. The van bursts into flames, killing all nine occupants ...eight of them children.

Criminal defense attorney Harrison J. Walker, known simply as Jaywalker, is trying to keep his nose clean while serving a three-year suspension. But when a woman seduces him into representing the Audi Assassin, a man who also happens to be her husband, things get messy.

Struggling with the moral issues surrounding this case, Jaywalker tries to stay focused on his goal limiting the damage to his client by exposing the legal system s hypocrisy regarding drunk driving. But when he rounds a blind corner in the case, he collides with a truth that could turn his entire defense into disaster.
