There's a new lawyer/writer on the scene. An early reader of Andy Seigel's Suzy's Case noted that 'the novel is everything your next book written by a lawyer is not: unapologetically profane, sexually twisted and yet humble in its showcasing of investigation, argumentation and negotiation in the hotbed arena of medical malpractice law.'

Couldn't have said it better myself. Who am I kidding? Couldn't have said it so succinctly or with such perfect wording. But, this sums up a very good book written by a novice in this field of writing, but not a novice in defending malpractice cases.

Suzy is a young girl, who at six years old had been given a treatment for critical sickle cell anemia. She ends up paralyzed and able to say only sch-weet and vegas. Six years later, her mother June is still trying to find an answer as to how this could have happened. How she could enter a hospital a sick little girl and exit paralyzed.

The hero of this tale is Tug Wyler, who practices medical malpractice law (in real life, so does Andy Siegel). Tug will stop at nothing to obtain justice for his clients. He takes Suzy and her mother June to heart and finds himself enmeshed in a conspiratorial cover-up.

At times a little bit raw, Tug comes across as an individual with strong will and a heart of gold. His sense of humor carries him through bad spots and his healing powers must excel. Believe me, he needs this.

I heartily recommend that you place Suzy's Case as the next book on your to-read list. You'll thank me. I can already feel the 'You were right!' flying through the ether.
