Editorial Reviews


"A thriller with a unique story idea and a well-captured historical mood" - Kirkus Reviews
"The writer triumphs in managing to complement the grounded, all-too-real dialogue and exchanges between characters with a touch of imaginative language that blurs the lines between fiction and nonfiction. The addition of commentary about historical facts provides an additional trajectory with which the reader is able to grasp a snippet of what it was like to live and work in the midst of riots and violence - a parallel we can easily draw to today's upheavals and social discontent." - Ani Torossian, Ms JD
"A classic in its own right. For readers looking for a new moral compass in the legal profession or for those disturbed by recent police brutality, misconduct, and shootings, this book may be the perfect end-of-summer read. For anyone interested in a compelling novel about public service, the justice system, and the historical events that have influenced our situation today, I highly recommend this book." - Renwei Chung, Above the Law
"Want to know what really goes on down there where Justice is rightly portrayed as blind? Read this book. You won't get this kind of a picture on television or in the movies. Howard Franklin has been there." - Michael E. Tigar, renowned litigator and legal scholar
"Gideon's Children is fiction but clearly parallels Franklin's own experiences as a Deputy Public Defender in Los Angeles County in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He tackles race, class, and socioeconomic issues that persist today, nearly 50 years later. And Gideon's Children reminds us of the continued struggles of public defenders, who ... still face justice systems that seem stacked against them." - Megan E. Boyd, Lady (Legal) Writer
