Jerri Blair’s Stunning New Legal Thriller Black and White

My first book, "Justice
for the Black Knight," was also about the hope for a future free of the
diseases of the past.
It was praised as a twentieth century law and
order fable and compared to a combination of the best of legal thrillers
like "The Firm" with the contemplative, but powerful, tone of works of
great literature like Ralph Ellison's "Invisible Man."

year career as a trial and appellate attorney who fought for her
clients' rights from the trial court to the U.S. Supreme Court.
