"Justice for the Black Knight" received the 2015 Beverley Hills Book Award for best legal thriller. It was awarded a prestigious star by Kirkus Reviews which called it a "...superbly crafted...intricately detailed...must read story of relationships, prejudice and bravery, a vivid paeon for justice." Red City Review wrote that it "...quite astutely tackles the topic of racism, combining the best attributes of legal thrillers like 'The Firm' with the exploratory and contemplative tone of subtle but powerful works of literature like Ralph Ellison's 'Invisible Man.'" Clarion Reviews called it "...a twentieth century law and order fable...that has the feel of a true crime mystery, coming of age novel, and high stakes courtroom drama rolled into one..."
In this explosive legal thriller, the shocking secrets of the past are brought to light when old friends Annabelle and Ruby reunite at the murder trial of Ruby's brother, Freddie. As children playing together, Freddie created an alter ego called the “Black Knight,” and vowed to fight injustice in the world. He spent his life trying to live up to that ideal. But now, he finds himself charged with the murder of an elderly man of stellar reputation, facing the death penalty, represented by an incompetent attorney and unlikely to receive the justice he believes, but isn't sure, he deserves.
Justice for the Black Knight is the dramatic story of a 1981 trial, where Annabelle and Ruby reach back into the past as they try to prove that Freddie is a hero instead of a villain. It is an inspirational tale of friendship which transcends bigotry, but is entwined with, a dark mystery hiding a trail of conscious acts of vicious cruelty, torture and death.which also takes an exciting and realistic look at the process of attempting to obtain justice through the legal system.
