A thrilling adventure into the real world of criminal law, a rich and powerful novel that deals with murder, the morality of justice and the perils of love, Clifford Irving's novel sets a new standard for courtroom fiction.
A twisting, relentless thriller, Trial follows Texas lawyer Warren Blackburn as he defends two accused murderers in two separate cases. One of his clients is a former beauty queen and brazen owner of a topless nightclub, who shot her multimillionaire doctor lover - she claims - in self-defense; the other is a homeless illegal alien accused of killing a man for his wallet.
Without warning, the two cases merge and become one, and Warren's entire life and career are threatened. William Safire in The New York Times called this "the novel of the year."
"Terrific! Don't begin this book at bedtime or you'll be up all night ... Trial is like a birchbark canoe or a seven-layer cake. You can go crazy trying to figure out how it's made, and it's made by a master." -- Caroline See, Los Angeles Times
"The courtroom scenes are breathtaking ... gripping suspense ... riveting!"
-- Publishers Weekly
"Riveting legal edge-of-the-seater, has Texas and American justice by the tail." -- Daily Telegraph (London)
"Jet-propelled ... colorful, down-and-dirty characters ... most readers will want to read this at one sitting." -- Library Journal
