The One-eyed Judge
A NovelBook - 2017
"When FBI agents barge into Sidney Cranmer's home accusing him of a heinous crime, the respected literature professor's life becomes a nightmare. Cranmer insists the illicit material found by the agents isn't his, but the charge against him appears airtight, and his academic specialty--the life and work of controversial author Lewis Carroll, creator of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland--convinces investigators he's lying. Presiding over the case against Professor Cranmer, U.S. District Judge David Norcross fears his daily confrontation with evil has made him too jaded to become a husband and father. His girlfriend, Claire Lindemann, teaches in the same department as the defendant and is convinced of his innocence. Soon, she will take matters into her own hands. Meanwhile--with his love life in turmoil and his plans for the future on hold--a personal tragedy leaves Norcross responsible for his two young nieces. Unbeknownst to him, a vengeful child predator hovers over his new family, preparing to strike. Fast-paced, thrilling, and thought-provoking, this is legal fiction at its most realistic and compelling."--provided by publisher.
