“Scarsella spices [his tale] with saucy language when needed and street lingo where appropriate. He keeps the suspense at high level until the answers unfold.” – The Buffalo News (May 31, 2015)
Lawyers Gone Bad is the story of beleaguered attorney disciplinary counsel, Dean Alessi, and his trusty investigator, Stu Foley, in their fight against lawyers gone bad – that is, lawyers who commit ethical and criminal wrongs. In this case they’re investigating the local District Attorney, who may have committed the ultimate ethical wrong – murder.
Novelist Vincent Scarsella draws on his over 18 years of real life experience as head of the Eighth Judicial District Grievance Committee in Buffalo, New York to craft a gripping, suspenseful novel about lawyers gone bad.
But the story is more than a crime novel. It concerns friendship, loss, unrequited love, and ultimately, justice. It seeks to answer the question, does what goes around, come around? “Lawyers Gone Bad,” follows on the success of Vincent Scarsella’s debut crime novel, “The Anonymous Man”, about which The Buffalo News said: “’The Anonymous Man’ gets decent marks for creativity and intricacy…it’s a fast read that runs through familiar local settings to a satisfying conclusion. Scarsella has the makings of a good storyteller…he and [Jack] Fox could go places.”
★★★★★ I am really enjoying reading this book so far. – Krystal H. (March 7, 2016)
★★★★★ Lawyers Gone Bad Is So Good! – Gary L. Hosking (January 1, 2015)
★★★★★ Fantastic Plot! – Harry J Gawronski (April 8, 2015)
Thank you for your interest.

Lars Spencer is bad news incarnate. Too handsome for his own good, too rich to comprehend, and way too close to home. The last time I saw him, his brother was marrying my best friend. And that night, he proved that his playboy ways know no limits. He’s a pig, and I’m saving myself for a prince. I have no business crushing on him…but my silly, stubborn heart didn’t get the memo.
So when we end up on the same Spring Break booze cruise, I make myself a promise: we’ll just be friends. No matter what. Even if he makes me laugh. Even if he actually listens to me when I talk. Even if he makes my heart race and my body tingle. Because I know how he treats women, and I know I wouldn’t survive the Spencer treatment.
Then again, this trip is supposed to be about pushing my boundaries, letting go, and facing my fears. Trust me on this: loving Lars Spencer is downright terrifying.
Is he really changing his ways, or am I just cruising for trouble?

Passenger 19 is Silver Winner 2016 Florida Book Award
USA Today best-seller
Jammer Davis has spent most of his life investigating aircraft accidents. When a small regional jet disappears over the jungles of Colombia, it is a tragedy like dozens of others he has seen but for one terrible detail: his young daughter, who was en route to a semester abroad in South America, is listed on the passenger manifest.
A distraught Davis rushes to Bogota and bulls his way into the inquiry. When the wreckage is located, it becomes clear the crash was unsurvivable. As the investigation gains momentum, the facts go astray. Two pilots had been shot before the crash, along with one passenger. The possibility of a hijacking looms large as the search begins to focus on two passengers who boarded the plane, yet their remains cannot be found.
Davis uncovers an even more sinister plot behind the entire disaster one that goes to the highest levels of the United States government. But how could it possibly involve his daughter?
Nariella has a hard life. Hated and beaten by her foster father, she finds solace in the one person who has always been there for her–Rydan, her overprotective best friend. His sheltering only gets worse once Nari collides–literally–with Mycah. A boy being chased by two kinds of evil; a boy who Nari is convinced is either the devil or an angel. But she was wrong. He’s something completely different.
Then there’s Naminé. A servant who lives in fear for her family, for herself, and for the dying kingdom she lives in. But there is hope, and she’s the only one who can bring that hope home to save them all. Naminé will risk everything to make that happen, even if it means betraying her king.
People always want the truth until they have it. To be let in on secrets until they get burned by them. Nari is no different. But once she’s kidnapped, tortured, and ultimately becomes intertwined in a secret world she never could’ve imagined existed, she knows there’s no going back to blissful ignorance. And maybe she doesn’t want to.
If darkness is the absence of light, what results from the absence of truth?

After five grueling years, Robert Worth is just days away from making partner at a powerful Santa Monica law firm. When a client confides in him that senior partner Jack Pierce sexually assaulted her, Robert breaks two of his mentor’s cardinal rules: Never let yourself get emotional about clients. And never make an enemy of Jack Pierce.
Robert crosses Pierce and is fired on the spot, losing not only his job but also his reputation. Advised to go quietly, Robert vows revenge against the ruthless man who betrayed him. But his investigation uncovers a twisted shadow world of sex, infidelity, and deception, where nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted. Only one thing is clear: Pierce will go the limit to keep his secrets.
This straight shooter will need to use every angle if he hopes to win. But could victory come at too high a price?
With money and hope in short supply, newly minted attorney Brigham Theodore decides it’s time to lower his standards. He joins a seedy fly-by-night firm in Salt Lake City out of desperation. After he loses his first case—a speeding ticket—he’s convinced his career is over. But to his shock, his boss hands him a slightly more complex case: capital murder.
Brigham’s new client is Amanda Pierce, a lost, exhausted woman who gunned down the man who tortured and killed her six-year-old daughter. A jury may prove sympathetic to her unbearable pain, but the law is no fan of vigilante justice—and neither is Vince Dale, the slick and powerful prosecutor who’s never lost a murder case. There’s no question that Amanda pulled the trigger—she did it in front of five witnesses. If she pleads guilty, she will avoid a death sentence, but saving her life this way comes with an admission that what she did was wrong. However, if she refuses the “guilty” label, Brigham will have no choice but to fight for his career—and Amanda’s life.
