Hotheaded, brash, merciless, sharp - John Wilkes is a legendary defense attorney with a notorious reputation for unconventional tactics in the courtroom. When he first appeared on the fiction scene in Wilkes: His Life and Crimes, the New York Daily News hailed him as "the best New York character ... since Bonfire of the Vanities". Now he's back with his sidekick Winston Schoonover in Wilkes on Trial - twisting the breath out of New York City's judicial system, fighting. Drooling, black-robed vampires (a.k.a. judges), and defending clients as low as subway rats (some are even innocent). Like a graffiti-covered wall, the State v. Diderot case has Wilkes' name written all over it. The victim is pretty, blind, white, and defenseless, and her alleged attacker is anything but. Lyle Diderot has a face that would terrify his own mother, not to mention prospective jurors. He's the longtime leader of the Whiz Kids, a street gang that got its name from the obscene acts it performs on a fallen enemy. Anyone who tangles with this bunch ends up "yeller" in more ways than one - a fact that has not gone unnoticed by Judge Yulburton Abraham Knott. Judge Y. Knott would sooner give Son of Sam instant parole to a nunnery than Diderot a fair shake and Wilkes feels he's more likely to get justice from the KGB than from Knott and his reputable chamber of horrors. The hatred and contempt between the two is vocal from the start. But Judge Knott won't be getting the last word: he's soon found slumped over his desk with a knife in his back. And Wilkes is the prime suspect from a drunken night he can barely remember. Filled with all the contemptible characters readers have grown to love to hate, Wilkes on Trial has the unsinkable attorney fighting for his life amid a bevy of prosecutors, cops, court clerks, and judges who would just as soon see our hero hanging by his neck in the hallowed halls of justice
