Marked Man by William Lashner

Marked Man


"Bestseller Lashner's novels about the trials and tribulations of Philadelphia defense attorney Victor Carl are theoretically about crimes and criminals, but are really about the protagonist's soul-searching and deep personal involvement in the cases he takes."

-Publishers Weekly

"Lashner, who could be considered an East Coast version of Michael Connelly, fills his narrative with frenzied plot twists, lovable characters, and a sharp wit. He paints the deeply flawed Carl as a pitiable figure trying to find his role in a nihilistic world and searching for a way to change his life for the better. Highly recommended for most fiction collections."

-Library Journal

"Victor Carl, borderline shyster takes on the case of The Un-Fab Five."
