The Mayor of Lexington Avenue by James Sheehan
Jack Tobin's youth on the streets of New York likely gave him a real advantage when he made his mark (and his fortune) as a trial lawyer in Miami. Fighting for a young man he feels wrongly convicted of murder bring back the reality of the debt he owes a childhood friend--the one who dubbed him "mayor of Lexington Avenue." If you're looking for a book that goes the extra mile, weaving deftly between crime fiction and nostalgia, this fine debut novel is worth a few hours of your time. I'm looking forward to renewing my acquaintence with the world of james Sheehan!
