" Yankee Lawyer" is still a wonderful "read." Train writes well and Tutt is as real as Perry Mason and Atticus Finch, both fictional lawyers who seem to be real people!
Tutt's view of our legal system is critical but not despairing. He is best at describing the problems of law vs. justice and how often the legal system fails the poor and powerless. The spitoons may have vanished from the modern courtroom, but vain judges, dishonest lawyers, and lazy juries have not. Fictional or not, Having served on juries myself, I agree with many of his observations.
Tutt is an avid fisherman and I can't help but wonder if this was Train's way of dropping clues as to what he was up to. It not only "smells fishy" but the whole yarn is one terrific "fish story!" Anyone interested in the law- lay people and lawyers alike will enjoy it!
