“My initial reaction, to just the first chapter, was, “hmmm, this is interesting!” From there, it only got better. This is not your typical supernatural story. It is an intelligent take on what would happen if the “real world” were suddenly made aware of the “supernatural world” living among us… or perhaps I should say “Arcane world,” and the legal implications that could arise.” ~ MoonlitDreams, Amazon Review

“Are all zombies created equal (in the justice system)?” ~ Candy Beauchamp, Amazon Review
“Atticus for the Undead is a story about the way our legal system and society treat minorities, using a fictional class of minorities (zombies, mages, vampires) to illustrate the author’s point.” ~ t.o. Aster, Amazon Review
Book Description: The next chapter in the struggle for equal rights begins!
Hunter Gamble is an idealistic young attorney in a very special area of the practice: arcane defense. Funded by enigmatic billionaire Charles McClain and aided by shy-but-energetic research attorney Kirsten Harper, he’s making the world a better place–one vampire, zombie, or werewolf client at a time. After all, they deserve their day in court too, right? When a young zombie walks into Hunter’s office accused of murder (by brain-eating), Hunter’s idealism is tested as never before as he struggles to secure the man’s freedom. To do so, he must square off against a savvy and ambitious district attorney, contend with a judge who is deeply biased against arcanes, and stand up to a human-supremacist group which will stop at nothing–not even Hunter’s own death–to see his client convicted..… Read more on Amazon.
About the Author:
I am a long, tall Texan (very, very tall) born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. Educated at Grinnell College in the great state of Iowa, I consider Iowa my second home state, and keep on good terms with both by eating barbecue AND corn. When I’m not watching way too much sci-fi/fantasy TV or reading similar books (or working, obviously), you can usually find me reading the news or playing video games. I currently live in Austin, Texas, where I work as a lawyer and author.
Everything I really need to know about storytelling, I learned from Joss Whedon (who influences my work), but I’m also a huge fan of suspense thrillers (which also influence my work), musicals (which, if I could write a musical novel, I’d be all over that), and parentheses (of which there are way too many in this bio).
As of May 12, 2012, I will be the author of three full-length novels (Weaver, The Void, and Atticus for the Undead), as well as The Antlerbury Tales, a short story.
My next full-length novel will be “Identity Theft,” Book 2 of The Legal Fiction Series. Expect it soon.
Stay tuned for more exciting projects in the months to come!

Kind of incredible, but true: John Abramowitz has done it again, with a riveting, funny, exciting and suspenseful supernatural legal thriller. It’s so much fun, you won’t be able to stop reading. And it’s going to make you wonder when another book will be available to satisfy your craving for attorneys for the undead and other arcane supernatural clients. Two thumbs up!” ~ Doonan Ding, Amazon Reviews
