In James Sheehan's “The Lawyer's Lawyer” (Center Street, $22.99), well-known corporate attorney Jack Tobin has retired and is living in Bass Creek, a small Florida town.

But Tobin, whom some call the lawyer's lawyer because they'd choose him to defend them, still takes a few pro bono cases. He accepts the case of a serial killer convicted of a series of homicides in Oakville, Fla., about 10 years earlier. He gets the conviction overturned on a technicality. This makes the police chief and state attorney furious, because they made their reputations on the case.

Now there's another murder, and Tobin becomes the defendant on a setup charge. He calls on another retired friend, Tom Wylie, to represent him, but with two professionals, there are bound to be a few clashes.

Sheehan has written another thriller with some great courtroom scenes.
