Jack Tobin, a Florida trial lawyer, is dedicated to ending capital punishment one prisoner at a time. Jack is convinced that doomed convict Henry Wilson is innocent, but can he delay execution and get Henry a new trial in time? Benny Avrile is a small-time crook with his eye on an oilman's big billfold. But as he makes his move, a shot rings out and the oilman falls dead; Benny blacks out. Just when his fate is all but sealed, an old friend from Jack's past reaches out... The clock is ticking, two innocent men are facing the death penalty, yet the one person who Jack most wants to save—his beloved wife, Pat—may have the least time of all.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patricia | 12/7/2013

    " I posted a review of this book on Armchair Interviews and I really liked the book. If you like legal/thrillers this is for you. I intend to buy The Mayor of Lexington Avenue the book that came before The Law of Second Chances by Jame Sheehan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 12/1/2013

    " Jack Tobin has made enough money in his career at law to be "retired" and take whatever cases appeal to him. He takes on two lost causes, death-penalty stories, one in Florida and one in New York. Great suspense and twists at the end of both stories make this my kind of book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cora | 7/7/2013

    " Good new author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin | 5/27/2013

    " Possibly better than his first book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobby B | 1/3/2013

    " So far, so good. Hoping it is as good or better than "The Mayor of Lexington Avenue." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Al Menaster | 10/14/2012

    " Better than sheehan's first book. Two really good parts, the death row exoneration and then a full murder trial. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy Swenson | 8/28/2012

    " I loved both his books. I picked up his first one by chance and couldn't wait for this one. Hope he's busy on his next novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Gullickson | 2/26/2012

    " I thought his first book was good. This book has just as many emotions & stories within one story, but they all connected. Jack is a great character! I can hardly wait for book 3. I recommend reading these books in order. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/25/2012

    " This book was a bit slow in the beginning bouncing back and forth but once the trials started in got quite interesting. It had a few twists, some expected, some not. It had likeable characters and especially Henry. It was overall a good, quick read, not to far fetched. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 10/22/2011

    " While the writing was good, the legal basis of this legal thriller was quite weak. It takes several days for an attorney who does capital punishment litigation to find Brady v. Maryland? I don't think so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracee | 4/8/2011

    " A steady read - at times predictable but didn't drag out which was good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/29/2011

    " Oh. Well...good, then! This Jack Tobin could become a crime/legal/mystery lover's habit.

    Gosh! Whatever this author has in mind for his NEXT novel is sure to be snapped up! "
