April 5, 2013 – University of Houston Law Center Professor David Crump has published his third novel, drawing upon his experience as a Harris County trial lawyer to write a legal thriller, Murder in Sugar Land.
"Most people get most of their information about our system of justice from fiction, but most lawyer fiction doesn't inform them very well," said Crump who teaches Civil Procedure, Criminal Law, and Evidence among other courses at the Law Center. "That's why I got started with writing my novels: to give an authentic picture of how our system works."
Advance reviews praised the writing and realism of the book:
Murder in Sugar Land is published by Quid Pro Books of New Orleans and is available in paperback and Kindle from Amazon and Nook format from Barnes & Noble.
Crump's previous novels are Conflict of Interest, 1997, and The Holding Company, 1999.
