The Big Cut

A Novel

Aaron Richard Golub

St. Martin's Press

Seduced by peril--and cold, hard cash--street-smart Johnny Ocean has earned himself an Upper East Side townhouse, a faithful Sikh butler, and a reputation for taking cases other lawyers won't touch. Enter his latest client, the shadowy Pandora Markham, an upper-crust temptress so shrouded in mystery that she has yet to come face-to-face with her own attorney...

On the surface, the case appears to be nothing more than a catfight between a pair of sisters-in-law over a $170 million inheritance. Johnny is isn't fooled by its seeming simplicity. Nor, as the inevitable grim reality snares him in an ominous underworld web, is he frightened--not at first. But Pandora Markham hasn't told him everything--and what Johnny doesn't know can kill him...

REVIEWS

Praise for The Big Cut

"A tough and taut legal thriller...kept me riveted to my seat."--Dominick Dunne

"A noir-ish romp filled with fiery courtroom antics and...biting humor that provides for a superbly entertaining yet disturbingly real view of corruption in the New York City judiciary."--Gear

"Offers a shock or a surprise on almost every page...Golub's fast-moving story echoes the work of Scott Turow and Carl Hiaasen, but with a darker, shaper edge. An read for a cold winter evening."--Nicholas Gage, author of Eleni

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

  • Aaron Richard Golub

  • Aaron Richard Golub grew up in Worchester, MA. He attended Clark University for his undergraduate degree and received his law degree at the University of North Carolina. After a brief career as a stock broker and rock band manager, Golub started his own law practice a mere five years out of law school after passing the New York Bar in 1972.

    Golub is now one of the most powerful trial lawyers in New York, recently featured in GQ's "12 Guys You Should Know" section (May 1999), for his high-profile cases. Among the more famous of his cases were his defense of Donald Trump in the 100 Central Park South case, and of the photographer who took nude pictures of an underage Brooke Shields (and getting Shields to admit she "liked" the defendant on the witness stand). On the other side of the equation, Golub has been the prosecuting attorney in equally high-profile cases, including his ground-breaking common-law marriage suit against actor William Hurt, and suits against Bob Guccione and Rex Reed.

    Golub has been featured on the cover of NEW YORK magazine (and referred to as a "Ninja lawyer"). THE BIG CUT is his first book.
