Set in 1976 in Mayville, Florida, in the opening pages of The Pecan Man readers are introduced to Ora Lee Beckworth, Blanche and the Pecan Man. Ora Lee is a white, recently widowed, middle-aged woman. Blanche was Ora Lee’s black maid, who raised her five children in the section of town referred to as “colored town.” Blanche worked for Ora Lee until her death. The Pecan Man (Eddie) was a black, elderly homeless man who took up residence in nearby woods and was hired by Ora Lee to care for her yard.

And yet Mona Lynch, a criminology professor at the University of California Irvine, provides fresh insights in her terrific new book, Hard Bargains: The Coercive Power of Drug Laws in Federal Court, in which she analyzes the history and current practice of federal drug prosecutions.

Book Review: Forensics - What Bugs, Burns, Prints, DNA and More Tell Us About Crime
It may be that we as defense attorneys are too quick to roll our eyes at the supposed travails of prosecutors, but one has only to Google “CSI effect” to find that many prosecutors feel like they are unfairly being asked to provide forensic evidence of a quality comparable to that shown on television in every criminal case. The concern, often voiced, is that if a juror is not presented with DNA tests, ballistics data, or at least fingerprint evidence, it appears that the police or FBI simply did not do their jobs.

Book Review: Something Is Rotten in Fettig
Book Review: Jere Krakoff was not born to write this book. Rather, he lived his professional life to write this book. Krakoff worked as a civil rights lawyer for 40 years, primarily representing clients who had no other voice and whose lives were beyond difficult. Krakoff spent much of his career working for organizations like the ACLU, National Prison Project, and Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. In those jobs, he principally litigated cases on behalf of prisoners challenging conditions that were so dreadful that they could be deemed unconstitutional. These are serious issues, but Krakoff surprises us with a hilarious, deeply satirical book.
