Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615572286, Paperback)Set in the courtrooms of our nation’s Capitol, D.A. Diaries explores the explosive combat zone of urban trial law through the eyes of Clay Franklin, an experienced homicide prosecutor. This story begins with the shooting of a popular and legendary Washington, D.C., teacher. The high-profile trial is assigned to Clay, who is equally dedicated to chasing women as bringing murderers to justice. As Clay confronts his new assignment, he reconnects with the woman of his dreams and struggles unsuccessfully to keep his demons at bay. The euphoria of Clay’s relationship is overwhelmed by a progression of devastating events as witnesses go silent and a corrupt clan of police officers seeks to protect the prime suspect. Clay’s indiscretion with a witness at trial threatens both his personal life and his career, sending the superstar of the homicide unit into an abyss. Clay is a passionate individual who is revealed through his observations and conversations with his cynical pals at the D.A.’s Office, crooked cops, drug-addled witnesses, and his burned-out psychiatrist. He sees the legal system, his dysfunctional family, and our nation’s Capitol with a unique wit that is at once comedic, troubling, and honest. The author has worked as a prosecutor and defense attorney for the past 30 years. Of course, D.A. Diaries is a work of fiction. Names and characters are the product of the author’s imagination. Any resemblance to actual events or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental. Although some real D.C. and Prince George’s County institutions are mentioned, all are used fictitiously.
