Parnell Hall and Stuart Woods follow up their New York Times bestselling debut, Smooth Operator, with Barely Legal, their first Herbie Fisher thriller, featuring Stone Barrington and Dino Bachetti. It’s a wild ride as the hotshot young corporate attorney finds himself shanghaied into court on a criminal case, caught between a mob boss and a loan shark, and framed for murder. He hasn’t fired a shot in ten years, but only he can rescue his client’s sister as he straps on a gun and heads out alone.
“Woods and Hall have crafted a fast-moving tale with a light touch. . . . Crime fiction doesn’t get much more entertaining than this.”
– Booklist (starred review)
“Herbie manages to stumble his way to the exciting, satisfying climax. The courtroom scenes are convincing, and a host of inept crooks will resonate with fans of Donald Westlake’s caper novels.”
