Denny Martel, a young and promising public defender assigned to Los Angeles Central Division Trials, is making a name as an aggressive and unrelenting advocate for his clients. These clients, who cannot afford their own counsel, are assigned to him at random from a mix of unfortunates charged with felonies. The PD office is in the beginning stages of a huge expansion, thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Gideon v. Wainwright, and the U.S. is fully involved in the Vietnam War. This confluence of circumstances produces an influx of socially evolved and involved recent graduates of top law schools into the public law offices. These young Turks, not least among them Denny, take the times and their cases to previously unknown levels of scholarship and excellence. Denny, recently in felony trials, discovers the power of not doing things the old way and yet respecting those and what has gone before him. Combining humanism, scholarship, and fierce independence, Denny attacks his cases, his women, and his life with the same level of intensity. His interactions with the judges and his supervisors who try to ride herd on him are rife with conflict. An uncompromising moral sense, coupled with a competitive nature and training, means his cases are all handled with the same abandon and skill. The inevitable clash of his way of living and practicing law and the status quo make for a roller-coaster ride for those who share his experiences in reading this book.

Stephen King
The instant #1 New York Times bestseller! Stephen King delivers an “outstanding” (USA TODAY) collection of stories, featuring revelatory autobiographical comments on when, why, and how he came to write (or rewrite) each story.

“I’ve made some things for you, Constant Reader...Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.”

Since Nightshift, published many years ago, Stephen King has dazzled an entire generation of readers with his genius as a prominent writer of short fiction. Now in his latest collection, he once again assembles a generous array of unforgettable, tantalizing tales—including those that, until recently, have never been published in a book (such as the story “Cookie Jar,” which is exclusive to this edition). There are thrilling connections between these works—themes of mortality, the afterlife, guilt, and what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. Magnificent, eerie, and utterly compelling, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is one of Stephen King’s finest gifts to readers everywhere—a master storyteller at his very best.
