New Novel - The 37th Amendment "Fascinating."________ ------Midwest Book Review

"Thrilling and chilling." 

Ted Braden is just trying to collect on a basketball bet when he telephones a fellow Lakers fan one night.  That phone call makes him a witness in a sensational murder trial and launches him into a dangerous battle with the California criminal justice system.

The year is 2056, forty years after the 37th Amendment has removed "due process of law" from the United States Constitution.

Meet Ted Braden, die-hard Lakers fan, whose calm world is about to be rocked by an angry girlfriend, a beautiful prosecutor, and an eminent defense attorney who has had enough of a legal system tilted against defendants.  Then meet someone who has a different view.

A wild ride through a surprising future, The 37th Amendment is a startling look at what our society has given up to crime, what we might do about it, and what the next generation might think of our choices.

This remarkable novel includes an appendix that tells the true story of "How the First Amendment Came to Protect Topless Dancing." You'll never look at the U.S. Supreme Court the same way again.

"The due process clauses ought to go."
--Felix Frankfurter, 1924
