THE LAWYER by Albert B. Gerber


Email this review


Author Gerber (The Bashful Billionaire) is a Philadelphia trial lawyer. So is Roger Grayson, ex-Graydzhonikidze via pushcart beginnings, and from classes at the University of Pennsylvania (Gerber is one of those congenital explainers) you'll move on to his cases, with World War II military duty and several girls in between. The story, or is it the lesson, picks up a little interest when (a) the doctor-girl of one of his law partners becomes involved in a fatal abortion and (b) Roger becomes involved in defending a young woman who's been servicing senior statesmen -- not to mention how. The whole bit from tort to tart isn't very interesting and you sure miss the nice clean countenance of Owen Marshall, Counselor-at-Law.
