Synopsis: A rallying cry for justice inside a compelling coming of age story.Set amidst the tumultuous and transformative 1960s, Gideon's Children tells the fascinating story of the idealistic young men and women who staffed the newly formed and expanded Public Defender Offices after the Supreme Court's momentous 1963 decision that mandated the right to counsel when charged with a crime. Facing virulent bias, they summoned a warrior spirit, and like Rocky in the courtroom, bravely led a revolution within the Criminal Justice System as part of the greater Civil Rights Movement. With the spotlight focused on five young Public Defenders fiercely battling prosecutors, cops, and judges within the raw environment of murder, rape, robbery, and drugs, as the intense drama unfolds, the novel weaves together the threads that form its essential lesson: That the power of the State is enormous, and that the only true protection against governmental abuse of power is the individual's supremely valuable constitutional rights! Increasingly relevant today in view of the 1984-like issues arising under the Patriot Act and highly invasive governmental spying, this lesson reminds that the more things change, the more they stay the same, as further evidenced by the disproportionate share of young black men in our prisons, and others killed for walking and driving while black.

Review: "Thriller with a unique story idea...well-captured historical mood" Kirkus Reviews
"The writer triumphs...all-too-real dialogue and exchanges...blurs the lines between fiction and nonfiction" Ms JD
"Classic in its own right...perfect end-of-summer read" Above the Law
"Want to know what really goes on down there where Justice is rightly portrayed as blind? Read this book." Michael E. Tigar, renowned litigator

"Clearly parallels Franklin's own experiences as a Deputy P.D. in L.A. County...tackles race, class, and socioeconomic issues that persist...nearly 50 years later" Lady (Legal) Writer
