Publisher's Summary

Abridged and Produced by Jim Brown. Cover Art copyright Daniel Deverell. Recorded and Edited by Gerry Gagnon. Original Score by Michael Creber. Additional Stings by Ross Barrett.
Arthur P. Besterman, criminal lawyer and reformed alcoholic, was the first to go. Counsel to Vancouver's assorted shifters and grifters, Besterman almost always lost his cases. But a recent victory defending a low-life client might be a clue as to why he was bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat. Then someone takes a pot shot at philandering lawyer Brian Pomeroy after he successfully defends a group of highly controversial eco-terrorists. And so the pattern begins.
All of a sudden, lawyers whose clients are less than savory start second-guessing the ethics of their profession. Going to court becomes dangerous, no one wants to be the next on the so-called "Executioner's" hit list.
In a cat-and-mouse game involving the better part of Vancouver's legal community, Pomeroy's firm (the famous Pomeroy, Macarthur, Brovak, and Sage from the best-selling Dance of Shiva) pieces together a puzzle that points to some very disturbing truths about lawyers and the law. As one sleazy lawyer after another disappears, the listener can't help but ponder the wisdom of Shakespeare's dictum, "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers."


What the Critics Say

Extremely Poor

Narration seemed to be poor, to slow paced for my liking. At first I thought, it was computer generated voice.
