Conflict of Interest

A propane truck falls from an overpass, killing dozens of innocent people on the freeway below. When Robert Herrick, one of Houston’s most respected trial lawyers, agrees to represent the families of the victims, a bizarre chain of events is set into motion that ultimately threatens his career, his family, even his life. Pitted against the ruthless lawyer Jimmy Coleman, partner in the mega-firm Booker & Bayne, Herrick finds himself careening between black-tie balls and opulent private jets to an underworld populated by drug pushers and topless dancers. With hundreds of millions of dollars and his own life and practice at stake, one lawyer struggles to find justice for his clients even while a psychopathic murderer lurks in the shadows.

The Holding Company

What could have driven billionaire industrialist Warburton Powers to shoot himself, his wife, and his infant son? Robert Herrick, a lawyer and close friend of the Powers family, investigates the tragedy against his better judgment and finds himself dragged deeper and deeper into the mass of tentacles that is the holding company. Opposing lawyer Jimmy Coleman is a ruthless ex street-fighter who heads an army of litigation associates at the mega-firm of Booker & Bayne. At every turn Herrick’s quest is confronted by the holding company as it exercises its world-wide powers and connections at all levels of the government to bury the terrible secret behind the death of the Powers family. Author David Crump, a professor of law at the University of Houston and author of numerous law textbooks as well as poetry, legal fiction, and a modern version of Virgil’s Aeneid, introduces realism and entertaining legal and corporate background to the genre. The novel features Switzerland, New York, Iraq, Houston, and Washington, D.C. in this intricate and absorbing courtroom drama.
