Descripción del producto
Jason Hunter's dwindling bank account is a daily reminder that Jason never should have left his job at a prestigious law firm to start his own practice, a solo shop located in uncomfortable proximity to a strip club. Hope arrives in the form of Maggie Moxley, a legal assistant who tearfully claims that Robert Spelkin III--her boss, and the office's most profitable partner--sexually assaulted her at work. Looking to transform Moxley's misfortune into profits, Jason takes on Spelkin and his powerhouse firm, Levitt, Bennett & Taylor, LLP. Spelkin, a man of unbridled ambition and aggression, demands not only victory but Jason's legal dismemberment. Levitt engages Rebecca Trent, widely regarded as the city's best employment litigator, to embark on a campaign that will annihilate Jason, his little firm, and his client.
Jason's only weapon is the truth of what happened that night. But the more he gathers evidence, the more he questions whether Moxley has told him the whole story. Meanwhile, Moxley's accusations initiate a series of events whose consequences extend far beyond accuser and accused, creating chaos for everybody in their orbit.

The Prick. I have to say, I really like the play on words in the title. Is it talking about how one person can burst another's bubble? Or is it referring to the term used to describe a person who does horrible things? In reality, both apply here. So, well done on the title. The narrative dives right in and does not slow down at all. The opening chapter is a tense situation between Jason and Maggie along with her slightly crazy husband. It sets the stage for everything that will come after. The novel also does a good job of not getting too bogged down in legal jargon and allows the reader to easily understand the actions taking place. I really liked the characters, even the ones that I hated, because I was able to understand their perspectives on what was happening. Very nicely written.
are all ‘mistruth’. But for a man who is willing to sacrifice everything for a new
opportunity to recover his former glory, Jason Hunter must ask himself, who is
innocent and who is the real responsible to blame?
This is a really intense story, there are a lot of perspectives here, on one side
there is Jason whose life’s been unfair to him after he regret to move on of his
boring, but comfortable life, he is somehow looking for a redemption here and is
presented by Maggie who came up with a case oddly predictable at first, but as
with everything, there is more in this than what it seems. I really love it, the
twists here fed the story to make something richer and far more intriguing than
just a legal dispute, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys stories like this
that deals in interesting and refreshing new ways to modern day problems.
The Prick is his first novel, written over the course of years in time not devoured by the ever-demanding practice of law. The Prick covers a series of events set in motion by one (alleged) egregious and cataclysmic action, set in the battleground of Atlanta employment litigation, a venue Wales knows and loves. The self-inflicted catastrophe, denial, wrath, retaliation and redemption–attempted at least– that play out in the novel have all been present in these cases for decades, and with stunning regularity. Wales lives outside of Atlanta with his wife and son.
A legal thriller around The Law Offices of Jason Hunter, Esq, yet colourful descriptions, with a focus on surroundings and detail stimulating your senses. The reader senses the disorder and tension and scare of the prosecuted. But Jason Hunter was smiling. This case was real.He loved Maggie Moxley his client (defendant) as much as he had ever loved anyone. This case could put him on the map in the legal circles of Atlanta, Georgia. A case of humiliation, terror and monetary demands.
Fast-paced, interesting, compelling so real that you see the scenes pass by like a film. Very clear that the author is well- read and immersed into the realities of everyday life were interests clash, and the competitive social and financial status that drive our thoughts and actions in a world where flaws and failings from infidelity accusations and sexual harassment can lead to trial . We see how the legal machine works: intimidation, litigation, legal fire power.
Ned, the defence attorney tried not to wince. The denial had been planned. The swearing, overly hostile tone, extortion accusations, and unbridled aggression had not. In fact, he recalled actively discouraging same. Egotistica accused had no self-control.
Spelkin, the accused, "would take the lead. He would tell Jason Hunter without a hint of anger or perturbation, that while he understood that, as a young, solo litigator, the temptation was to take any case that came in the door— and believe any allegation that was made— this case had no factual support whatsoever. He would look Hunter squarely in the eye and explain that all of the disgusting and insulting allegations in Hunter’s demand letter were ridiculous and completely fallacious and that it would be a tremendous waste of Hunter’s time, money, and reputation to go any further with this farce. Above all, his emotional range would be limited to indignation."
But the defense, Ned says: “Put yourself in my shoes. I need the firm to make this go away.”
“When nature calls,” Jason said. “He had an irresistible urge to point it in someone’s direction. Sexual harassment will always be around unless we’re all neutered. Men have been trying to compel female contact with their junks for thousands of years and will continue to do so long after we’re gone.”
Had he misread the situation? Was Spelkin really innocent? Was Mr Moxley pathological? He couldn’t go back on his word and counter the $ 25,000 now. He would look weak. But then he receives a settlement offer...... but then there is another role-player : ” He hung up. “Prick,” Jason said into the dial tone. Wife gets sexually molested and he thinks it’s his lottery ticket. And that he’s somehow in charge. "
A very applicable cover image on the front cover page and name of the novel: A prick of a needle to deflate a balloon ! Who is the ' Prick ?'
Enjoy the book.
