The Book

Spirit of the Law

Legal Thriller

This suspenseful novel is set in Memphis, Tennessee in 1993, at the genesis of the World Wide Web and prior to the invention of the smartphone.

Sy Marcus, a successful, hard-nosed defense attorney uncovers a dark secret within his own family. He quickly finds himself in a struggle to save his marriage and his legal reputation when he crosses the aisle to serve as the special prosecutor against the renowned defense team representing his brother-in-law and his business partner, who is charged as his co-conspirator.

In his attempt to expose the truth he discovers how far a psychopath will go to meticulously plan the perfect murder. Because the prosecution’s case is based solely on circumstantial evidence, all indications point to a possible acquittal. However, this is a game Sy Marcus is determined to keep the psychopath from winning. He sets a new legal precedent with a groundbreaking caper to try to prove the perfect murder is never perfect.

This book is dedicated to Sy (Seymour) Rosenberg, James Lockard and Wayne Emmons, three brilliant attorneys from Memphis, Tennessee, who helped Georgia write the trial in this book.

I loved this book, I was completely absorbed by the characters, the storyline, the relationships and the plot. A real page-turner, especially for someone like me who only reads memoirs and nonfiction.  I could not put it down and frankly was quite sad when I came to the last page. Great read, I highly recommend it, bravo to first-time author Georgia Zaslove.
