Crown Jewels by Field Ruwe
Salvaged from the death chamber seconds before potassium chloride is pumped into his veins to stop his heart, African refugee Fisha Bayu inherits millions of dollars from an American volunteer and opens a law firm.
Within a comparatively short time he becomes a human rights advocate of great renown in the lawyer’s pantheon.
When he sues the Queen of England for reparations, he entangles himself in curses and fury and becomes a target of his former cell mate, a neo-Nazi and pro-monarchist British fugitive who is the leader of the Houston Komodo Dragons, a track-hunt-kill biking gang. If he does not give in to their demands, he risks being butchered.
In this standalone suspenseful story of murder and courtroom justice, several assassination attempts are made on Fisha’s life both in the US and The Hague (Netherlands). But it is what takes place inside the International Court of Justice that makes Crown Jewels a classic. When the courtroom drama kicks off, the Queen’s Counsels string Fisha up and display his body for the world to see. They portray him as a hypocrite and con artist. Is Fisha lawyer enough to correct a fatal error of judgment that threatens to destroy his personal and professional life? Irresistibly readable, is this perhaps the most audacious story ever told by an African?
