A smart combination of analysis, humour, and a daily chronicle of a fascinating case, Steven Skurka's new edition completes the compelling saga of Conrad Black's Chicago trial. It is a rare and informed inside look into the twists and turns of the American justice system. A must-read for anyone interested in true crime and the justice system.
Steven Skurka is the legal analyst for CTV. A practising defence attorney, he has defended such landmark cases as the Hells Angels anti-gang law case and the Maple Leaf Gardens sex abuse scandal. He is a widely regarded lawyer and frequently quoted legal analyst who attended the Conrad Black trial in Chicago. His legal blog, "The Crime Sheet," has been widely followed. He lives in Toronto.
What makes Tilted more than just a chronicle of a criminal case round and round the appeal-go-round, as Skurka calls it, are the wonderfully human details that make trials and their aftermath the compelling dramas that they are: Blacks wife fainting at his resentencing; the line of prisoners cheering Black when he was released on appellate bond; Amy St. Eve, the judge at Blacks trial, sitting in the Supreme Court during oral argument of the case; and Blacks assistant and a defense witness selling T-shirts outside the courthouse that read Conrad Will Win. - The Federal Lawyer (US) Oct/Nov 2012 issue ... kudos to Skurka for being able to breathe some life into his book. -- Regina Leader-Post
