Synopsis

Synopsis

A thrilling account of the ins and outs of the Suffolk County Superior Court, this novel is vintage George V. Higgins.
 
The third installment in the Jerry Kennedy series finds the Boston lawyer defending his toughest client yet, Billy Ryan. But it’s a few years on and battered Boston lawyers don’t look so hot under strong white light. Seemingly not the man he was, Jerry has to dig deep to come out on top in discrediting the prosecution. He looks to the likes of Bad-eye Mulvey, Cadillac Teddy and Carlo (a heavy-hitter) for assistance. Will the drama that ensues reveal that Billy Ryan has cut one shady deal too many?
 
Jerry Kennedy leaves no source unprobed in Defending Billy Ryan, a work of stylish, racing prose.
George V. Higgins
