On Brooklyn’s treacherous streets, having a conscience can be a dangerous commodity. When Andrew Giobberti, exiled from Homicide to Appeals, suddenly finds himself in demand in the prosecution of the horrific murder of a beloved neighborhood grocer, he cannot know the hornet’s nest of lies and double-dealing he will uncover. With the newspapers and the powers-that-be insisting Gio convict the supposed perp at any cost, his capacity for fair play and diligence leads him to a shocking conspiracy that reaches all the way to the top—and in a world founded on corruption and cover-ups, this fine-tuned sense of justice could just cost him his life …

Quotes & Awards

  • “There are many many lawyers-turned-novelists who seem so very well-pleased with their work. They should all read Semiautomatic, then eat a very large slice of humble pie. Semiautomatic is the real thing; Rob Reuland is a real writer.”

    James Patterson

  • “Shines with fantastic imagery, sharp dialogue, and sparkling detail. An engrossing, morally complex winner.”

    George Pelecanos, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Robert Reuland writes beautifully—about sadness and cities and injured dreams. First with Hollowpoint and now with Semiautomatic, he has renewed my faith in the health and future of the urban crime novel.”

    Dennis Lehane, New York Times bestselling author

  • “A novel-lover’s treat. It is one of those very rare books that manage to be smart, compelling, witty, and important all at once. Robert Reuland skips the by-the-numbers nonsense of generic legal thrillers and instead offers a fully detailed world of vivid characters and a troubled court system, and he reminds us why we find stories about the law so fascinating.”

    David Liss, New York Times bestselling author

  • Semiautomatic is notable not for violence but for subtle characterizations, moral ambiguities and exceptional writing…In stylistic terms it’s the best-written legal thriller…hands down.”

    Washington Post

  • “Reuland avoids by-the-numbers storytelling and die-cut morality, tracing a tortuous path through the Brooklyn underworld and tossing off impolitic remarks with a studied carelessness…There’s a redemption story thinly camouflaged under the procedural tangle, giving this noirish legal thriller grace and gravitas.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Reuland, himself a veteran of the Brooklyn DA’s Homicide Bureau, vividly brings to life this gritty morality tale and draws us deep inside the protagonist’s troubled psyche.”


  • “Reuland is a real-life ADA, and if he prosecutes as effectively as he writes, Brooklyn is a lucky borough.”

    Kirkus Reviews
