The Good Lawyer ~ by Thomas Benigno

Taking place in 1982,  Nick Mannino is just out of law school and working in legal aid for low income clients when he gets a case where he truly believes the client is innocent of sexually molesting the young boys as he’s accused of doing.

NIck is young,  ambitious and wants to prove he can be a successful lawyer – getting away from his family’s involvement with a Long Island based crime syndicate.   He’s in love, too.

The story has some twists and turns,  interesting although graphic in places.  It’s pretty good but not great at all.  I may be getting burned out on legal thrillers.

    They’re all written to be made into movies, aren’t they?

    • I think so – I don’t go though. I think I see the impact in more action-packed books with great visuals. You can just see the movie in your head, or you wonder how they’d do that.
