What People are Saying About This

Peggy Webb

With this remarkable first novel Don Organ joins the ranks of John Grisham and Scott Turow. Full of twists and turns that will keep you turning pages, OFFICERS OF THE COURT is a must read. (Peggy Webb, Author of WHERE DOLPHINS GO)

Martin L. Needleman

Don Organ's white-collar mystery, OFFICERS OF THE COURT, is a winner. As soon as the FBI confronts Colin Briggs in his office, you know you are in for a gripping tale of how ordinary people can get caught up in the web of the criminal law. You immediately empathize with the main character and feel the same fear, anxiety and curiosity that he does when the FBI comes to call. If they are not coming to arrest, should he answer their questions or show them the door? Should he call his lawyer? If he is innocent of wrongdoing, does he have anything to fear? Thoughts like these raced across my mind. The cat and mouse game between the state and the individual will leave the reader thinking and sweating until the heart-stopping climax. This is a thinking person's book. It will interest anyone working or teaching in the area of criminal justice, as well as anyone who wants an excellent, page-turning read. (Martin L. Needleman, Ph.D., Department of Criminal Justice, Bloomsburg University)

Joan Mellen

Officers Of The Court" transports us to the world of Franz Kafka where false accusations meet guilt, and betrayal is commonplace. Don Organ's fascinating insider's view of the antique business alone is worth the price of admission. Law and justice collide in this first novel by someone who knows well and brilliantly the nuances of the legal trade. (Joan Mellen, Author of HELLMAN AND HAMMETT)
