He's created colorful characters by splicing together a motley assortment of tics and traits he's observed during his 40-plus years of litigating toxic tort, commercial, and personal injury cases." - Pursuit Magazine "Characters are well-defined to the point where the reader can begin to imagine actual public figures on which they might be based. Their intriguing relations intertwine with startling twists of events that keep the pages turning straight to a powerhouse Texas size finale. ...Well worth the read." - The Islander Magazine, Galveston, Texas "As a former state district judge, I was riveted to the book. I know Hubert as a top-of-his-class trial lawyer -- now I know him as a top-of-his-class author. Just as he could effectively present his case in a winning manner to persuade a court or jury, he has used these same accomplished skills on his reader -- he captivates, holds our attention and, with all the flair of great suspense writers, weaves a story that you can't put down. Well worth the read " - The Honorable Alvin Zimmerman, Former Texas State District Judge.
