Martin Clark - 'The Substitution Order'
A new novel that takes on the legal system, insurance fraud and one hard-luck lawyer’s refusal to accept defeat.
Martin says, “In the last few years, there have been several media accounts—here in Virginia and elsewhere—of solid, competent attorneys and law firms losing six figures to con artists. Reading those stories set me to thinking about how vulnerable our system is.” It is those vulnerabilities that keep the plot and tricks flying.
Earlier this year Martin Clark retired from his job as a circuit court judge in Virginia, a position he held for twenty-seven years.
From Martin Clark--praised by Entertainment Weekly as "our best legal-thriller writer"--comes a wickedly clever, tenderhearted, and intricately plotted novel about a hard-luck lawyer's refusal to concede defeat, even as fate, the court system, and a gang of untouchable con artists conspire against him.
