Hugh Anthony Levine

Author Hugh Anthony Levineabout this book: Most crime fiction features a protagonist criminal defense lawyer or prosecutor on a quest to achieve justice. Not so, Misguided, whose protagonist -- a former prosecutor turned criminal defense lawyer -- steps over one ethical boundary after another until miring himself in abject treachery. And Misguided's central characters, who intersect in a highly-publicized drug trafficking trial in Manhattan federal court, suffer fates they have inherited from their fathers, whose sins and shortcomings are revealed in retro mini-chapters as the novel's circuitous plot unfolds.

As a former prosecutor turned criminal defense lawyer myself, I know first-hand and have tried to bring up in full color the ethical challenges facing those who labor in the vineyards of the criminal justice system. These challenges ground as much in psychology as in morality, and thus Misguided delves considerably more into the psychology of its characters than do mainstream crime novels. Hopefully Misguided's readers will be reminded of novels by Sinclair Lewis and Philip Roth more than of crime fiction thrillers.
