Miami Mystery First Novel Published by ABA

The American Bar Association has just published The Shadow of Justice by Milton Hirsh, a Miami criminal defense lawyer, the first work of fiction published by the ABA in its 126-year history. According to the press release, the work, written by Hirsh “in the wee hours before work each day, . . . unveils a realistic, unvarnished glimpse of a Miami murder and drug case.” With The Shadow of Justice, ABA Publishing begins a new series, Great Stories by Great Lawyers, that will “feature new novels by those who know the legal system the best: practicing lawyers and judges. Part of the ABA’s mission in establishing the series is to educate the public about the criminal justice system by illustrating the way it really works.”
