Synopsis:

Project Divine Wind is a cybernetic courtroom thriller flavored with mystery and romance.

LeBaron studied in Berkeley in the mid-Sixties and came away with a law degree. But what next? After returning from a long stay under the Mexican sun to mull it over, he finds employment representing criminal defendants in the down and dirty neighborhoods of Oakland. His employer, Cedrick P. Collins, Esq., is a former longshoreman who earned his law degree from correspondence school and is now the most charismatic, elegantly dressed, and silver tongued African American criminal defense lawyer in the Bay Area. Law school never prepared LeBaron for coping with Collins’ streetwise clients. This novel contains a realistic look at the underside of the legal justice system based on the author’s own experience.
