Justice For All

Billion-dollar comic rights battle leads to deadly conspiracies unraveling.

Daniel Pike faces Kenzi Rivera in the ultimate courtroom cage match—but death may render the final verdict.

Florida defense attorney Daniel Pike (The Last Chance Lawyer) is dragged into his first civil case to represent a comic-book writer suing to recover the rights to a character that makes billions—while he lives in poverty. Pike’s opposing lawyer is Kenzi Rivera (Splitsville), representing a former flame who claims those rights should go to her. Everyone wants control, but powerful forces are willing to do anything—absolutely anything—to get it. The first indication? A decapitated head found at an airport baggage drop, a horrifying murder pointing directly to this case.

The more Pike learns, the more he realizes that nothing is what it appears to be. He will need all his courtroom skills, every trick and tactic, to prevail. After a bloody confrontation on the courtroom steps proves just how dangerous this case is, he is drawn into a longstanding conspiracy. Can Pike uncover the secrets before he becomes the next victim?

Gripping for newcomers and fans, Justice For All pits The Last Chance Lawyer‘s Daniel Pike against Kenzi Rivera, the protagonist from the author’s Splitsville series. If you like spellbinding courtroom drama, unexpected revelations, and fast-paced action, you’ll love William Bernhardt’s thrill-packed courtroom showdown.

I love my job. Even on the worst day when I can't seem to put together a coherent sentence, I'm grateful for this magnificent opportunity to tell stories and share them with others. My mother says I was saying I wanted to be a writer when I was seven. I know that seems incredible, but she's my mom, so we have to believe her. I never missed an opportunity to visit the library, which was blissfully near my home, and the librarians there took a great interest in this nerdy, shy, bespectacled kid who kept reappearing almost every day. They encouraged me to read widely and to read the best of everything. That is exactly what I did and have continued to do all my life. I love telling stories. I'm super-excited about this new six-book series featuring lawyer Kenzi Rivera, which starts with Splitsville. I started this after I completed another six-book series with lawyer Daniel Pike. His first book is The Last Chance Lawyer and the last is Final Verdict. Several years back I wrote a series of legal thrillers featuring Ben Kincaid, then took some time off to write poetry and young adult and nonfiction books on writing (the Red Sneaker series). It's fun to be back in the fictional courtroom, with a fresh take and new characters addressing some of the contemporary issues facing our world today.

In addition, Bernhardt founded the Red Sneaker Writers Center to mentor aspiring writers. The Center hosts an annual writers conference (WriterCon), small-group writing retreats, a newsletter, and a bi-weekly podcast. More than forty of Bernhardt’s students have subsequently published with major houses. He is also the owner of Balkan Press, which publishes poetry and fiction as well as the literary journal Conclave. In 2019, Bernhardt received the Arrell Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award from the Center for the Book. In addition to his novels and poetry, Bernhardt has written plays, a musical (book and score), humor, children stories, biography, and puzzles. He has edited two anthologies (Legal Briefs and Natural Suspect) as fundraisers for The Nature Conservancy and the Children’s Legal Defense Fund. OSU named him “Oklahoma’s Renaissance Man.” In his spare time, he has enjoyed surfing, digging for dinosaurs, trekking through the Himalayas, paragliding, scuba diving, caving, zip-lining over the canopy of the Costa Rican rain forest, and jumping out of an airplane at 10,000 feet. In 2013, he became a Jeopardy! champion, winning over $20,000. In 2017, when Bernhardt delivered the keynote address at the San Francisco Writers Conference, chairman Michael Larsen noted that in addition to penning novels, Bernhardt can “write a sonnet, play a sonata, plant a garden, try a lawsuit, teach a class, cook a gourmet meal, beat you at Scrabble, and work the New York Times crossword in under five minutes.”
