He is the author of Wilkes on Trial and Wilkes: His Life and Crimes and a columnist for Forum. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept.

Starting with a chapter on the defendants (one of whom, when asked his marital status, replies after a long pause, adequate ) and following with sections on lawyers, experts, witnesses, evidence, and even one called Malaprops (DA: The status of the boat has no relevance to this case at all. This is a total fishing expedition). Stories from the previous books have become viral Internet sensations, priming readers for more legal disorder, such as: Clerk: "Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you are about to given in the cause now pending before this court shall be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?" Witness: "Yes, I swear. I'll say anything but the truth, nothing but the truth."
