"The book is drawing note for its use of fiction to illustrate how state statutes apply to real-life situations. Call it Criminal Statutes for Dummies. ... George Thomas, a professor at Rutgers Law School in Newark, said the book fills a void. 'No other book,' he said, 'attempts to show how the statutes are used in practice. To be honest,' he added, 'I'm jealous that I didn't come up with the idea myself.'" - New York Times, July 18, 2004
