LINDA JORDAN, LAWYER by Jean Libman Block


Email this review


Although the amount of crook capturing and county cleaning Linda and her fellow law student, Joe, accomplish is rather amazing, this is a career story with cohesion and substance. Druggist's daughter Linda's last two years of law school at a midwestern university are a stage for many phases. She gets studying blues and finds she must knuckle down to more boring things like contracts in spite of her fascination for criminal law; she falls for attractive, but corrupt Wilson Cameron whose law practice shields the racketeers she and Joe later expose; she gets inspiration from a famous woman lawyer Hilda Lessing and in the end can envision a solid future. An intelligent young novel in which sidelights as well as highlights are examined.
