Street Judge

From the author of his truly candid memoir, Inner City Miracle, comes the fast-paced thriller—now available in paperback—about a judge who is caught up in a gritty case involving a brutal murder that no one else seems to care about.

Detroit was once considered the murder capital of the nation, and as fresh-to-the-bench Judge Mathis discovers, it may be living up to its name. In one of the city’s most horrific crimes ever, a black female has been discovered decapitated in an alleyway, with her head located several blocks away. The police are stumped until the arrest of a drug dealer promises to reveal vital information about the case. The only problem? The drug dealer won’t talk to anyone but Judge Mathis. The dealer demands privileges and assurances of safety from Mathis, who refuses to bend his moral code and give in to the conditions, setting the investigation back to square one. But Mathis isn’t about to give up and finds himself unable to stop thinking about the case. So he sets out on the streets, using his savvy and connections to uncover the motives and means that led to the woman’s death.
