James Garrison receives national recognition through the INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD®!
By: TouchPoint Press
The competition is judged by experts from different aspects of the book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. Selected award winners and distinguished favorites are based on overall excellence.
In James Garrrison's legal crime thriller, The Safecracker, idealistic young lawyer Patricia Egan has a housemate she doesn't like and a client she doesn't want—a professional safecracker who seems far removed from the well-heeled civil clients her firm has been representing. But the safecracker and her former clients are intricately linked in their respective criminal enterprises, something they want no one to discover, certainly not Patricia or her fellow lawyer and housemate, Jack Alexander. There's a string of dead and maimed to prove it.
"The Safecracker is a somewhat tongue-in-cheek legal thriller, which sometimes slips in a little humor or a subtle (or maybe not so subtle) parody of traditional genre fiction, including the John Grisham type. Lawyers named McFee and Sharp. A villain called Fisheye. A safecracker who tries to steal a safe from a fast food restaurant rather than just open it and take the money. And the safe is encased in a block of concrete. Then there's a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of a dog named Princess," Garrison explains.
