Did career criminal Alonzo Barnett, in and out of prison since age 15, commit the latest drug deal he's accused of? Yup, he's guilty as charged. But is he guilty as sin? That's the question criminal defense attorney Harrison J. Walker, the maverick known as Jaywalker, has to answer as he takes the court-appointed case. As Jaywalker is well aware, one wrong move, even for the right reason, can derail your life - and land an otherwise redeemed ex-con back in the slammer for years.
"We need way more jaywalker on audible."
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.
"Was this book good - Yes but........"
It is the late 1970s and criminal defense attorney Harrison J. Walker, better known as Jaywalker for his rebellious tactics, is struggling to build his own practice when he receives a call from a desperate mother. Her son, Darren Kingston, has been arrested for raping five white women in Castle Hill, an area of the Bronx long forgotten by the city. A young, good-looking black man, Darren is positively identified by four of the victims as the fifth prepares to do the same.
"Not as good as the first Jaywalker book."
Criminal defense attorney Harrison J. Walker, better known as Jaywalker, has just been suspended for using "creative" tactics and receiving "gratitude" in the courtroom stairwell from a client charged with prostitution. Convincing the judge that his other clients are counting on him, Jaywalker is allowed to complete 10 cases. But it's the last case that truly tests his abilities - and his acquittal record. Samara Moss - young, petite, and sexy as hell - stabbed her husband in the heart. Or so everyone believes. Having married the elderly billionaire when she was an 18-year-old former prostitute, Samara appears to be the clichéd gold digger.
