Winston Barquist III, a former big time corporate attorney who narrowly escaped disbarment, is now a 300 pound, moped-riding lawyer, turning his life around with a new girlfriend and a re-invented career as a sole practitioner in a flea-bag office above a Dairy Mart. Mostly, his cases consist of defending small-time hoods and negotiating simple divorces, but his life takes an abrupt new direction when a svelte society matron parks her Mercedes at his front door and hires him to investigate a large fund in which she and her business-mogul husband are both trustees. Doesn’t sound too dangerous––that is, until bullets start flying and our intrepid hero finds himself in the middle of one DEADLY AUDIT.
David M. Selcer authors the Buckeye Barrister mystery series, the first of which is DEADLY AUDIT. After graduating from Northwestern University, Selcer attended Ohio State University Law School. He then had an exciting career practicing management labor law with a large national law firm for 35 years. Today, he has retired to Sarasota, Florida, where he feels his job is either to sleep or to write mysteries. Somewhere along the line, he helped raise five kids. He also still manages to make decisions on employment cases involving the Post Office as a Federal Agency Decision Writer. He is an avid OSU Buckeye fan.
