Blood on Their Hands by Bob Brink
Little does alcoholic, miserly attorney Hiram Garbuncle know the danger he’s getting into when he reluctantly defends a black man brutally beaten by police during a traffic stop. It is 2008, and Alec Monceau’s car carries an Obama bumper sticker. The cops wrongfully charge Alec with violently resisting arrest, and Garbuncle’s negligence in jury selection results in a mistrial. He then discovers incriminating evidence on the cops, and his new challenge becomes how to keep himself and his client alive pending a new trial.
BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS has everything: suspense, thrills, plot twists, comedy, a moving love story, courtroom humor and drama, unforgettable characters, sharp dialogue, intrigue, moral tension, and a message that resonates in our time.
