Harrison J. Walker - Jaywalker, to the world - is a frayed-at-the-edges defense attorney with a 90-percent acquittal rate, thanks to an obsessive streak a mile wide. But winning this case will take more than just dedication.
Seventeen-year-old Jeremy Estrada killed another boy after a fight over a girl: shot him point-blank between the eyes. No one disputes those facts. This kid is jammed up big-time, but almost unable to help himself. He's got the face of an angel but can hardly string together three words to explain what happened that day...yet he's determined to go to trial.
All they've got is a "yesbut" defense, as in: "Did you kill him?" "Yes, but..." Jaywalker is accustomed to bending the rules - this case will stretch the law to the breaking point and beyond.

The best part about the jaywalker series, in my opinion, is that it is so easy to get into. As always I was immediately captivated and I just wanted to keep listening until it was over. Though the author seems to put the main character up on a pedestal, the story always delivers and Again, I found myself almost brought to tears by the compelling and theatrical ending of the case. The jaywalker series also never seems to be overly complex, and i still never find myself bored of the story. I have listened to "Overkill", "Guilty As Sin" and have read the print version of "Bronx Justice" and this review can be applied to all of them. Now, moving on to " The Tenth Case"...very excited.
