Law of Second Chances by Professor James Sheehan
Book DescriptionA rich man parks his expensive car in downtown New York. As he gets out of the car, he is surprised to see a young man in front of him, holding a gun. No need to panic. He's been in this situation before. It's surely about money, and therefore negotiable - isn't it? There's a sharp crack of a gun and then silence. A week later a small time crook has been arrested for murder. Two eye witnesses have put him at the scene of the crime, but did he pull the trigger? He's facing death row and if there's to be a law of second chances, he needs a good lawyer fast.

The Law of Second Chances is a masterfully written legal thriller and an exciting successor to the critically acclaimed The Mayor of Lexington Avenue.
US Kirkus Review » A tense second round of legal maneuvers and courtroom spectacle from Florida attorney Sheehan (The Mayor of Lexington Avenue, 2005).Sheehan brings back his charitable protagonist Jack Tobin, a lawyer who made his fortune defending insurance companies. Tobin has since committed himself strictly to defending men sentenced to Florida's death row. The conscientious objector to the death penalty now has his hands full: He must help free a black convict, Henry Wilson, convicted of murdering a drug dealer 17 years ago. In the midst of proving Wilson's innocence, Tobin must also face the possibility of losing his beloved wife, Pat, to a life-threatening illness. Along the way, Tobin also takes on the seemingly unwinnable case of small-time lowlife Benny Avrile, thought to have shot oil tycoon Carl Robertson. Sheehan has an assured and elegant narrative voice that elevates this nontraditional legal thriller. While some elements, like Jack's frequent flashbacks to his rose-colored adolescence, feel like holdovers from the first novel, the smart balance between Tobin's unpretentious courtroom presence and his contemplative reflections gives the book a certain dignity. A suspenseful, respectable courtroom thriller. (Kirkus Reviews)
