“Race to Judgment” by Frederic Block; SelectBooks, Inc., 320 pages.

In his thrilling novel, Race To Judgment, Judge Frederic Block takes us on a fast-paced ride through the underbelly of the New York State Criminal Justice System, as it is portrayed in Kings County (Brooklyn). The reader is transported through what can only be described as its tragic racial history involving myriad wrongful convictions of minority defendants that, only in recent years for the most part, have led to several spectacular, high profile exonerations.

Block’s riveting story is told through the eyes of Ken Williams, its main protagonist. Williams’ life and career is modeled on that of the late Ken Thompson, who recently passed away at the youthful age of 50, after serving as Brooklyn’s District Attorney for only two years. We quickly learn that Williams—as did the real-life Thompson—formerly served with distinction in the Private Bar, as a federal line prosecutor and as a distinguished and honorable district attorney of Kings County.
