Sister Katherine Hennessy and Father Thomas Riley engage in a love affair that disintegrates into sexual exploitation, control and near suicide. Boston trial lawyer and former combat Marine, Mike Lyons, battles in the courtroom on Katherine's behalf in an effort to hold accountable the denying and deceitful priest. A dramatic piece of evidence turns the tide. Brooks Webb, wealthy Boston Brahmin, closets himself in a world of drugs, deceiving his wife and children. Danielle Webb, ignorant of her husband's covert life, seeks love and sexual attention elsewhere. When Brooks assaults Danielle, she hires Attorney Mike Lyons to seek a divorce. Head-spinning evidence emerges as Mike wrestles in his favorite arena, the courtroom, to overcome discovery of a sex sting and how his client's deceptive behavior complicates progress of the trial.
Full Courtroom Press takes the reader behind-the-scenes and into the mind of former combat Marine and current Boston civil trial lawyer, Mike Lyons, as he plans and strategizes to meet the challenges of two dramatic cases. The powerful force of shame keeps both clients from being forthright with Mike, creating tension and obstacles during each trial. Mike educates the reader about how to win in a courtroom. This book is both entertaining and enriching. Attorney Lyons meets head-on the challenge of proving a priest's metamorphosis from a paragon of the church and esteemed faculty member of a Catholic college to a controlling sexual predator of a young sister of the church. At the same time Mike litigates in family court a difficult custody case. He has to overcome his client's dalliances as she surprises her lawyer and the reader day after day. In time we learn that not only Danielle but also her husband, a Boston Brahim, are far from puritanical. Mysterious witnesses and unexpected bombshells provide evidentiary twists that impact the outcome of each trial. Intrigue carries over into Mike's own family life. While Mike's wife has a liaison with a Congressional candidate, Mike resists the sexual advances of a flirtatious client. He and his wife finally confront their wounded marriage. It's a page turner!
