Jack Hammond
Created by Reed Arvin

This shyster may be down, but he's not out.

Atlanta's JACK HAMMOND was once a big shot lawyer, until he got wrapped up in a bad piece of business with a beautiful client that left her dead and him working out of his one-man law office in a not exactly glamorous part of town, trolling for clients at the bottom of the criminal gene pool. But a good man's gotta do what a good man's gotta do, and somehow Jack's always the one to do it.

Not so much a legal thriller as a rip-snorting tale that just happens to be about a lawyer, Jack has this knight errant quality that recalls nobody so much as Spenser or perhaps a wise-cracking Travis McGee. And the PWA must have agreed -- The Last Goodbye, Jack's debut (and so far, only appearance) was nominated for a Best First P.I. Novel Shamus.
