The Big Bear Paperback – January 1, 2003
"A notably different courtroom drama in which a young Mexican-American battles overwhelming odds to become a lawyer, then a good lawyer, and finally- sadly enough- a successful one... Ruiz... creates a warts-and-all protagonist for his third outing...: you may not always like Gabby, but you'll probably find yourself rooting for him." - Kirkus Review
From the Publisher
Ron Ruiz, best-selling author and former defense attorney and prosecutor, writes from bare-knuckled courtroom experience and the teeth-grinding memory of growing up the son of Mexican immigrants in rural California. His characters agonizing relationships and search for self-discovery provide an engrossing illustration of ever-present issues of success and social class in the United States. Ruiz populates this tale of passion, crime and politics with genuine and vulnerable characters, each one struggling to solve his or her own mysteries.
