Publisher's Summary

An American lawyer in Paris jail...

A bright young Texas lawyer determined to make it on his own leaves the DA's office to pursue a career as a criminal defense attorney. Just months later, he finds himself at the center of an international ecstasy drug trafficking ring. As a charismatic negotiator, Lawyer X ignores danger and resurrects a deal gone bad. Caught red-handed in Paris, France, he lands in prison indefinitely.

Isolated from his culture and marked as l'Americain, he is focused on staying alive at a time when Anglo-Franco relations are at an all-time low. Facing years in French prison and multiple life terms in the United States, Lawyer X must protect his best friend's innocence and salvage his own dignity. His mentor, a legendary Dallas attorney, fights to keep him from becoming a casualty in the war on drugs.

Awesome listen!

Thanks for sharing your story. I was a young, successful businessman who became addicted to pain pills after two back surgeries. Never experimented with drugs at all but dr’s Prescribed me pills and before I knew it I was a junkie. From there I made very bad decisions that cost me my marriage and life at home with my children. I’m 6 1/2 years clean but it’s something you never get over. I don’t agree with our judicial system bc it’s big business. Again, thank for the great book!!

Drug Dealing Lawyer's Pity Party

Narration: Well done. Clear and accents are credible.

Content: Disturbing how cavalierly author describes his incarceration for drug dealing, then being rescued via his well connected family attorneys and money. Why disturbing? Because although much is described about the author's discomfort and coping strategies, absolutely nothing is referenced about the harm caused by abuse of the drugs he smuggled. One can easily get the impression that Ecstasy is completely safe and it is an imposition to be busted for smuggling it. Really?
