In the crosshairs of two warring mobs

Michael Knight and Lex Devlin agree to defend a jockey accused of murdering a fellow jockey during a race at Boston's Suffolk Downs. Michael's expertise in the machinations of the horse racing game is expected to serve them well. But a personal attachment to the murdered jockey thrusts Michael and Lex into the midst of conflict between Boston's Irish mafia and remnants of the terrorist branch of the Irish Republican Army. Now they are in the crosshairs of both, and the brutality of these combatants knows no bounds. As Michael and Lex uncover layer after layer of deceptions involved in the seamier side of horse racing, they become more dangerous to the gangs. In action that shuttles between Ireland and Boston, the lives of the lawyers as well as those close to them are in the gravest danger and the criminals show no mercy in their quest to put an end to this threat. As their investigation hurtles forward, it could end a wonderful law partnership due to the absence of living partners.

About the Author:

John F. Dobbyn is a professor of law at Villanova Law School. He is a frequent contributor to Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, and he is the author of five legal thrillers featuring Michael Knight and Lex Devlin.

Dobbyn is a Boston native and now resides in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, with his wife Lois.

Review:

“Knight has a sharp wit and a gift of gab that he uses to exploit the enmity between and within the rival gangs...it’s difficult to believe that anything terrible could happen to a clever lad flashing so much good old Irish blarney.” ―Publishers Weekly

“From its characters who go straight to the heart, to its intriguing settings, to its plot with more jolting twists than a Boston Street, Black Diamond takes you on a non-stop ride that keeps you gripping the wheel.” ―Lisa Scottoline, New York Times best-selling author

"...the Boston setting; a self-effacing hero with more nerve than muscle; carefully drawn, three-dimensional secondary characters; and the way the seemingly simple plot mushrooms into full-blown chaos. A very entertaining entry in what one hopes will be a long-running series." ―Booklist
