It is true that some people are very damaged. It is not true that they are all unsalvageable. The Lifer and the Lawyer raises questions about childhood trauma, religion, race, the purpose of punishment, and a criminal justice system that requires harmless old men to die in prison. It is a true story about Michael Anderson, an aging African American man who grew up poor and abused on Chicago’s south side and became a violent and predatory criminal. Anderson has now spent the last forty-three years in prison as a result of a 1978 crime spree that took place in southeastern Washington. The book describes his spiritual and moral transformation in prison and challenges society’s assumption that he was an irredeemable monster. It also tells the story of the author’s evolving relationship with Anderson that began in 1979 when Critchlow, a young white lawyer from a privileged background, was appointed to defend Anderson on twenty-two violent felony charges. For Anderson, this is a story about overcoming childhood trauma and learning how to empathize and love through faith and self-knowledge. For Critchlow, the story also raises questions about how we become who we are—about race, culture, and opportunity. Finally, the book is a revealing commentary on our criminal justice system’s obsession with life sentences.

"Each arena has its Michael Jordan. In the courtroom, it is David Berg. And Berg has taken this natural talent and time-honed skill to a new level as he unlocks certain secrets that have catapulted him to the top of his profession. What most have considered his "magic," he explains as common sense practice. This book should be a required text at every law school. Those in the legal profession should not just read this, they should study it. The difference it will make in case results more than pays for the book, over and over again." W. Mark Lanier, The Lanier Law Firm, Houston, TX "My father made his living as a lawyer. My elder brother used to practice his cross-examination technique on me and thus rose to be Australia's attorney-general. It might be said that I grew up with the law. But I can swear on a stack of bibles that I have never read a book about the nuts and bolts of forensic skill, about how to win cases and influence judges and juries, as expert, perceptive, precise and, often, as outright funny as David Berg's. I hope that I never need the professional services to which his book is a guide, but if I do I pray my defender will have read and memorized every last word of it." Robert Hughes, Author of the Fatal Shore Former art critic of Time magazine "I think of David as a people's trial lawyer in the Clarence Darrow tradition.

A newspaper reporter struggles with unreliable sources while covering two explosive stories—the apparent murder of a priest who stood up to his church and a spate of increasingly destructive bombings. Shock waves reverberate through tight-knit Riverside, Maine, when an outspoken priest is found dead. After writing Father Patrick Doherty's obituary, Portland Daily Chronicle reporter Joe Gale learns that the good Father didn't die in the garden where his body was found—the cops say it was murder, and the killer went to great pains to cover it up. Friends and parishioners tell Joe that Patrick was sincere and selfless. But a vocal gang of rabble-rousers claim he was corrupt. Joe is nowhere near cracking the case when a second crisis threatens to tear Riverside apart: a poorly constructed bomb detonates near the local high school. On the eve of Patrick's wake, the police imply the dead priest was involved in criminal activity prior to his death. And as Joe races to sort truth from rumor, his two big stories collide, putting him in mortal danger. 83,000 words

Notorious playboy and daredevil bull rider Bowie West didn’t plan to seduce innocent Lucy, but the passion that ignited between them was too strong to resist. Can Bowie convince Lucy that a roving rodeo cowboy is ready to settle down? EXCERPT: “You’re getting to have quite a mouth on you, young lady.” “You’re just getting to know me better. You might not like me so much once all your illusions about innocent virgins have been dashed.” “Oddly enough, the more I learn about you the more I like you.” He stepped forward, pushing her hood back off her head and letting the rain pour down over the cascading tendrils of her dark hair. “You’re just full of my kind of surprises.” He slid his arms inside her raincoat and pulled her toward him. Warm rainwater ran into their mouths as they opened them to kiss. Steam rose gently from them into the damp air as they allowed their hands to roam over each other. There wasn’t anywhere she’d rather be than in Bowie West’s arms. When he held her, she felt safe. She’d been alone so long that she was used to being tough enough to take on the world by herself. Now that she was getting a taste of what it was like to share your burdens and your joys with someone else she in danger of becoming addicted. “I have an idea.” He took her hand and turned toward the barn. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a roll in real hay.” “I think you’ll find it rather scratchy,” said Lucy doubtfully.
