Yale Law School graduate Justin Peacock's legal experience serves him well for this intense novel in the tradition of such genre luminaries as Scott Turow and Richard Price.

A Cure for Night features Joel Deveraux, a former corporate-law hotshot whose downward slide finds him plying his trade at Brooklyn's Public Defender's office. Thrust into a high-profile case involving black-on-white crime, Joel quickly discovers he is in over his head. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 2/13/2014

    " An adequate but not particularly remarkable book. It's a decent first novel, I guess, but fairly predictable. The advance reviews are totally overselling it. I've read worse, but I've read a lot better as well. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gitgirl66 | 2/2/2014

    " I stopped at chapter 5. If he got an award for this; I'm going to get the Pulitzer Price! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Woo | 1/7/2014

    " A strong debut, this legal procedural is impressive in its authenticity with the characters and their development in the context of a trial. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff | 1/4/2014

    " Mildly entertaining. A page turner . . . but the characters lack dimension, the plotting is straight our of "Law and Order" (all comparisons to "The Wire" must immediately cease), and the dialogue verges on minstrelsy. Another lawyer writes a novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jon | 11/15/2013

    " Pretty standard courtroom drama. Reads like an episode of The Practice or some other courtroom show. A magazine compared it to The Wire. It's more like a book written by someone who watches the Wire. Key mystery is pretty easy to figure out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 10/10/2013

    " Good book about a young lawyer in Brooklyn, and a murder trial. Entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tatiana | 8/12/2013

    " writing & plot moves you along at a fairly good clip, perhaps a little too much legal stuff in the middle. i was entertained. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 6/22/2013

    " Not a great legal thriller, but the author has an ear for the snappy dialogue demanded by noir. He is an author to watch, for those of us who like this form. I hope that in his second book, he spent more time developing the steps of his plot. I felt there were bit chunks missing out of this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 6/11/2013

    " A superbly written book with a compelling plot. One of the best books I have read this year. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dawn | 12/22/2012

    " A well written court thriller that never really caught my attention. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 12/15/2012

    " A great law procedural/mystery about drug life in Brooklyn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 6/4/2012

    " Public defenders make for interesting heroes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nina | 5/17/2012

    " This is a well-written, well thought out legal thriller. I enjoyed the switches back and forth from the lawyers' conversations to the manner in which the perps speak. Just a plain old-fashioned good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theresa Sivelle | 2/3/2012

    " This was okay, don't know if I would have enjoyed the book more or not. The ending wasn't a big surprise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Viccy | 7/23/2011

    " Excellent debut novel. The protagonist throws away his glittering career for dope and suffers the consequences. In the end, he redeems himself. I read mysteries for the good guys to win and this one worked well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 11/12/2010

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mom | 6/23/2010

    " I like books by lawyers. Here, I could identify with the main character, an everyguy who is not a hero just trying to figure out what's going on. Drugs and murder in the projects from a public defender's point of view. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 11/22/2009

    " Public defenders make for interesting heroes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edowney | 7/17/2009

    " A corporate lawyer brought low by his former drug use is now a public defender . He's trying to juggle staying clean with defending recurring criminals and a client up for murder who may be innocent...or not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonnie | 6/22/2009

    " this was a really good read that read like a legal drama...so good "
