How to Try a Murder

I am reading a book with this title, by Michael Kurland, who has written many fiction and nonfiction books. It is subtitled "The handbook for armchair lawyers". I found it in the last-chance sale table at Barnes & Noble, thought it might be interesting. And interesting it is. It follows a fictitious case through the process from discovery of the murder, to indictment of the suspect, the lawyers on both sides, the process all the way through. Interspersed with the story of the case is information about the legal process at each step. Love it!!

I think it's particularly appropriate that today I am on call for jury duty. I was put on telephone standby last night, have to check in again between 11:30 and 12:00 today, in case they need a jury for this afternoon. Not very likely.
