A mother in New York sneaks her young daughter out of a research hospital. A billionaire philanthropist in Texas fights to save his dying son at all costs. A young traffic-ticket lawyer in Austin named Andy Prescott runs his legal empire out of a tiny office above a tattoo parlor and dreams of being a rich lawyer. Five lives on separate paths--until Andy defends the billionaire's secretary against a speeding ticket. Their lives become fatefully intertwined, destined to intersect--in death. And Andy Prescott learns that a client can be too rich for his lawyer's own good.Best-seller lists:No. 8, South AfricaNo. 10, IrelandNo. 11, AustraliaNo. 13, UKEditorial Reviews:The Common Lawyer is about an overpowering need to right a shocking wrong, and it contains violence, romance and some heart-warmingly managed ethical dilemmas . . . The pace is perfect; the style clean and transparent; the emotional manipulation, effective; and you can see the film from here. It will entertain many people. - Times Literary Supplement (UK)Mark Gimenez writes colloquially smart dialogue but plots like an old master. - The Australian The Common Lawyer is an addictive, compulsive read. With an interesting, flawed protagonist who matures as the novel progresses, a cast of well-drawn and diverse characters, and a great plot (not to mention the unexpected twist at the end), this is a must-read novel. Highly recommended, The Common Lawyer will keep you reading into the night. - Civilian-Reader (UK)
