“The Lawyer’s Lawyer” is the story
of Jack Tobin, whom we first met in “The Mayor
of Lexington Avenue.” Tobin is a successful attorney
that has been called the lawyer’s lawyer. The
book begins when a young man attempts to murder a female
university student in Florida. She knew Tai Kwan Do,
and she managed to escape his attack unharmed. She was
the only one of the serial killer’s victims to
survive. She was also the only one who could identify
him, so for her safety, her parents took her out of
school and took her home. But she was stabbed to death
at a party after she got home. The police arrested the
young man they believed responsible for the crimes,
but he was only charged with the last two. He was convicted
of the crime and put on death row.
Then, ten years later, just before the man was to be
executed, Jack Tobin was called into the office of Exonerations,
the nonprofit organization that looked at those death
row convictions. Tobin was asked to look at the serial
killer’s files in case something was amiss. The
killer was set free and promptly killed.
