Product description

Product Description

Ah, summer. Dallas Henry's favorite time of year—except for this week when the State Bar Association holds its annual convention in Dallas' beach town, and hundreds of his former legal brethren arrive like a red tide of litigating menace.

Dallas has been giving away free rooms at his one-star motel to keep any lawyers from checking in, but suddenly he has bigger problems.

Cranky Judge Crenshaw calls Dallas in the middle of the night and claims someone's trying to kill him, but won't say who he thinks it might be, or why.

Convinced the judge is pulling another of his infamous practical jokes, Dallas plays along, only the next day Crenshaw turns up dead and doughy prosecutor Brent Bannister claims Dallas' car was the murder weapon.

Then Dallas' old law school girlfriend shows up, followed by a TV advertising lawyer with bad hair plugs, a felon with bad aim, a bag of steamed crabs, someone digging holes in the judge's back yard, piles of deer pooh, the dead judge's reclusive ex-partner, a former courthouse worker who gets three pension checks, a real estate tycoon hell bent on building a new golf course, and a convention center full of lawyers who want to make Dallas "Attorney of The Year" for running over Judge Crenshaw.

Dallas' helpers, meanwhile, aren't helping. Francophile Herbie's massive origami creation is taking over the motel's front desk. Misdemeanant Dash is stealing limos from foreign diplomats. And Susan still isn't the love of Dallas' life.

Who would have thought one dead judge could cause such a commotion?

A satiric whodunit from the sunny beaches of Ocean City, Maryland.

This Ebook version of One Dead Judge contains extensive revisions from the hardback edition of the same title—so much so, in fact, as to be an almost completely new book.
