Illegal Motion

Genre: True Crime, Fiction; Author: Grif Stockley; Publisher: Simon & Schuster

University of Arkansas: sex between a white cheerleader and a black football star. She says it was rape; he says it was consensual. Enter Gideon Page, a defense lawyer with ambitions but with ethics, too. To defend his black client he has to deal with U. of A. politics, cowardly coaches, obsessed football fans, small-town prostitution, and allegations of child abuse. It’s a complicated mix, but from it Grif Stockley extracts a clear, gripping story. He writes with wit, irony, and a good lawyer’s intimate understanding of the daily life of the defense bar and the dynamics of trial. Illegal Motion reads like a thriller and reverberates like the news. A
