Book Review: An Officer and a Spy
Robert Harris has written a riveting historical novel about the infamous Dreyfus Affair that saw Captain Alfred Dreyfus falsely accused in 1894 of treason for sending French military secrets to the German Embassy. The discovery that someone was passing state secrets to Germany hit the French military brass hard. They had just lost a humiliating war in 1870-71 to Prussia. The war was essentially over within the first month with the Prussian capture of Napoleon III and his army well within French borders.

Book Review: Accidental Felon
Author Gloria Wolk has a commendable motivation in writing a federal criminal justice thriller, but her book is unimaginative and contains a jumble of clichéd situations.

Book Review: Beyond Freedom's Reach - A Kidnapping in the Twilight of Slavery
Lincoln freed the slaves, right? Not exactly. The Emancipation Proclamation, effective Jan. 1, 1863, only applied to those states that took up arms against the Union. It did not apply to slaveholding states that remained loyal to the Union. And, it was an Executive Order, not an Act of Congress. Lincoln issued it while the war still raged, so he dedicated Federal troops to the enforcement of the Proclamation. The Emancipation Proclamation did apply to Louisiana. This is where the story begins.

Twenty years ago as principal writer, he integrated research, data and the varied opinions of a panel of criminal justice experts to produce The Real War on Crime: The Report of the National Criminal Justice Commission, a comprehensive analysis of American crime policy and incarceration.

Book Review: Project Fatherhood - A Story of Courage and Healing in One of America’s Toughest Communities
Living in a small, conservative, mid-western town most of my adult life, the story of Project Fatherhood grabbed my attention. It is a story about a group of fathers in Watts, a small community in the eastern corner of South Los Angeles, who want to improve not only their lives, but lives of the community.

Book Reviews: Disrobed: An Inside Look at the Life and Work of a Federal Trial Judge
Most books by federal judges are dry, weighty tomes, rarely read by practicing criminal defense lawyers except perhaps by the relatively few scholars and intellectuals among us. Rather, in my experience, most criminal defense lawyers for their leisure reading prefer books that do not tax the mind, like those of John Grisham, especially if the lead character is a courageous underdog criminal defense lawyer.
