Just Revenge

By Alan M. Dershowitz (Electronic Book, 2000)
One of the foremost courtroom lawyers of his generation, Alan M. Dershowitz takes controversial stands based on the principle of equal justice for all. Along the way, he has authored the #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Chutzpah; " the bestselling account of the Claus von Bulow case "Reversal of Fortune; " and the bestselling courtroom drama "The Advocate's Devil." Now Dershowitz has written a novel that is at once personal, passionate, and towering: an explosive legal thriller that pits Dershowitz's literary alter ego, attorney Abe Ringel, against the worst crime of the twentieth century -- the Holocaust.

For Max, who has discovered Prandus's identity by chance, killing him is not enough, because Prandus is already dying of cancer. How can Max make Prandus suffer exactly as Max himself did? Can Max bring himself to assassinat
