KIRKUS REVIEW

 Fresh from his prophetic victory over the tobacco industry (Nobody Roots for Goliath, 1996), California attorney Bomber Hanson reluctantly agrees to represent millionaire megastar Steven Shag, the pop-singing phenom whose unbridled love for the young boys who visit his Magicland compound (any of this sound familiar?) makes him a natural target for child-molestation suits, even though he insists, ``I'm not a child abuser. I want to be a child amuser.'' Bomber's investigator, his son Tod, succeeds in defusing one of these suits, but when a second one goes to trial, Bomber will need all his grandstanding tactics to prevail. Unfortunately, grandstanding is practically all the usually resourceful Bomber does here, making this the slackest of his three cases. If he wants another dose of celebrity trouble, maybe he should jet to Paris, where a bunch of paparazzi could use some good representation.
