Publisher's Summary

John Bookman - Book to his friends - is a tenured professor at the University of Texas School of Law. He's 35, handsome, and unmarried. He teaches Constitutional Law, reduces senators to blithering fools on talk shows, and is often mentioned as a future Supreme Court nominee. But Book is also famous for something more unusual. He likes to take on lost causes and win.
Consequently, when he arrives at the law school each Monday morning, hundreds of letters await him, letters from desperate Americans around the country seeking his help. Every now and then, one letter captures his attention and Book feels compelled to act.
In the first of a thrilling new series from the author of international best sellers The Colour of Law and Accused, Book investigates a murder set in the high-stakes world of fracking and corruption in deepest, darkest Texas.

Seriously good listen

If you could sum up Con Law in three words, what would they be?

This is a great story, complex and interesting, read by THE BEST narrator, Jeff Harding.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

My attention did not wander for a second.

What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is the best narrator and can make dreary stories sound interesting and interesting stories compelling.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Constitutional Law meets Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Slow to get going and not that great when it does!

I had high hopes for this book as it had got good reviews from other people. However, the overly long introduction to the story which focussed significantly on points of American constitutional law became drawn out and rather boring to me - and I am a lawyer, but a British one, not American.. I normally find the legal aspects of novels by John Grisham interesting, but this just didn't grip me. Then, when the story got going, I found the character of the female intern quite whiny, rather than entertaining as described by other reviewers. I haven't finished the book yet, so am will keep going and hope that it gets better.... but I'm beginning to doubt it.

Keep listening

If reading this you would skip the first ten or so chapters which are incredibly boring unless you were studying US law. The rest is a cumbersome read with a few highlights. A very disappointing story from a good author
