Purchase CRIED FOR NO ONE by Hubert Crouch here:

​​​TRIAL LAWYER AND AUTHOR HUBERT CROUCH'S NOVEL CRIED FOR NO ONE THRILLED AUDIENCES NATIONWIDE - AND NOW HIS WINNING PROTAGONIST JACE FORMAN IS BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER IN THE WORD, A RIPPED-FROM-THE-HEADLINES LEGAL THRILLER FULL OF MYSTERY, INTRIGUE AND COURTROOM SUSPENSE. (Serpentine Books, Trade Paperback, $14.99, e-book $9.99, April 28, 2015).

Ezekiel Shaw and his fanatical followers preach a gospel of hate, picketing the funerals of fallen soldiers, and praising God for sending America’s soldiers back in body bags. But when they disrupt the funeral of Second Lieutenant Lauren Hanson, a West Point graduate killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, hard-charging Fort Worth trial attorney Jace Forman becomes determined to put an end to their crazed crusade no matter the cost. 

As Jace and reporter Leah Rosen battle the odds and the clock in pursuit of justice and truth in the courts, they draw closer to uncovering a shocking conspiracy—and facing sinister forces that will stop at nothing to keep them from revealing the truth.

“Religious extremism is a very dangerous and powerful force,” said Crouch. “It threatens our First Amendment rights and has been used to suppress women’s rights throughout the world (including our own country).”

“…Crouch is a fine practitioner of the courtroom drama. He knows just how to bring a legal case to life without having to dress it up or dumb it down. His prose is precise and clear, pushing readers forward with an understated elegance. Characters—heroes, villains and those in between—are fully formed creatures with personal hungers, demons and large helpings of Texas personality… the pages all but turn themselves as each scene builds on the next, working outward in a spider web of connections, complications and coincidences... Inspired by news headlines, this timely novel illustrates how even the simplest seeming disputes are complex in the eyes of the law…A topical, lively legal thriller.”  - Kirkus Reviews
