    I didn't think this book was a bad book for a debut novel. It was actually pretty good. I enjoyed the pacing of it. It is very quick paced and you didn't know what was going to happen next. Does it have some holes? Yes, Mr. Teller needed a little better editor as some of the final plot...

    If you are a fan of the legal system, especially court cases, then The Tenth Case, by Joseph Teller will be a must-read for you! ?It had long been Jaywalker?s belief that if you were to pull any ten criminal cases out of a hat, one of those ten could be won by the very worst of...

    Joseph Teller's 'The Tenth Case' is a wonderful example of a legal thriller. Jaywalker is a quirky lawyer who has just been suspended from practicing law for three years. The lewd act he and a hooker were caught on tape engaging in--in the courthouse stairwell of all places--was th...

    This book is very entertaining, witty, fast paced, often down-right funny, and also seriously grim in places. I recommend this read to anyone who likes a mix of comedy and drama in easy doses. Diane Davis White Author, Moon of the Falling Leaves ...

    In my humble opinion The Tenth Case by Joseph Teller is not a suspense thriller nor is it a true mystery. It is more a legal drama with various portions of the story written in the form of a trial transcript that reads like the dialog in the courtroom portion of a Law and Order episode...

    Manhattan lawyer Harrison J. Walker has, for the length of his twenty-plus year career, been known simply as Jaywalker. In court, the judge usually calls him Mr. Jaywalker. He is that rare criminal defense attorney who believes that a defendant deserves at least one person in his corne...

    Wow! I absolutely love this book and can't wait to read more from this author. I guess this is a series about the same lawyer. I really enjoyed the character and his inability to follow the rules. I related to him!!!! The storytelling is great, and the plot's twists and turns are so mu...

    Unlike Bronx Justice which was more or less autobiographical, this novel has more humor and less of a sense of doom. It has some funny lines, related to the way things work, like cop-speak. The cop writes in his report: " 'did knowlingly and voluntarily grant them consent to affect e...

    I wanted to like this book far better than I actually did. Teller draws upon his background as a DEA agent and criminal defense attorney to craft a courtroom and police procedural that is fast-paced, but stereotypical. From the portrayal of the ill-spoken New York detective to the trai...

    Can't remember how I got turned onto this book, but I'm glad I was. I really enjoyed this. The characters are strongly written and humanly flawed, and the ending didn't disappoint as they so often do. The author really knows his procedures for murder trials (not surprising since he's a...

    When I was asked to review this book, it sounded interesting. Truly it did. The premise is that a renegade lawyer, threatened with disbarment, tries his last case: a young, beautiful wife accused of murdering her elderly, billionaire husband. The main character, Jaywalker, has poten...

    Think Perry Mason. But in this case, the defense attorney is Harrison J. Walker, aka Jaywalker. He's about to be suspended for misconduct but is allowed to complete ten of his current cases. This is the tenth case, a young trophy wife arrested for the murder of her forty-years-older bi...

    If you're going to be in Skynyrd, you've gotta play Freebird, right? I mean, what choice do you have? So it occurs to me that writing in a genre must pose quite a challenge because, on one hand you've got to find a way to make it fresh and interesting and different from all the othe...

    Not a boring read, but not great either..., I will offer openly that I'm not a big fan of legal thrillers or court-room dramas, but this book still caught my eye because of the uncommon protagonist. I kind of had the feeling, about halfway through this book, that the ending was goi...

    Nero Award 2008. The novel takes you through a trial from the beginning to the end. The characters are likeable enough to have kept my interest. It is an easy enough book to follow the plot and keep track of most of the characters. Some points of the novel are repetitive and some of th...

    I would like to start by saying I thought the idea of having "ten final cases" before suspension for a lawyer was a pretty good idea. Actually, almost every aspect of this book was pretty good- just pretty good. The writing was pretty good, during the serious and the humorous parts. Hi...

    "Truth could be a slippery thing, far more elusive and hard to get your hands around than a simple black-or-white, up-or-down concept like guilty or not guilty." The tenth case - Josepth Teller. A very well-constructed story with an open ending. Though it is full of legal terms, the...
