Rice, Craig: Trial By Fury. v1. 20 Nov 08
This is a John J. Malone novel by the famous Craig Rice, author of screwball comedy mysteries with a twist.
I have not read this particular novel and do not have a plot synopsis on it. However, I do have this information below:
"JOHN J. MALONE, her ne'er-do-well bibulous attorney. Despite being billed as 'Chicago's noisiest and most noted criminal lawyer,' Malone acts more like a private eye than a member of the court. And a particularly hard-drinking private eye, at that. Despite a rep for courtroom pyrotechniques, he's far more likely to be found at Joe the Angel's City Hall Bar than in any court.
"Along with his boozing buddies, Jake and Helene Justus, an affable young couple, he drank his way through a whole slew of novels and short stories, not to mention later film, radio and television appearances. Seemingly inept and irresponsible, he nevertheless somehow (luck of the Irish?) managed to crack the case everytime."
I have indeed read some of the other Malone novels and they are great fun.
Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.
I hope you enjoy it.
