High Stakes

The excitement never diminishes! After two years of research and writing, John F. Dobbyn published his sixth legal thriller in the Michael Knight/Lex Devlin series, High Stakes. An authentic Stradivarius violin turns up in Romania that holds the code disclosing the location of a treasure hidden by Vlad Dracula in the fifteenth century. Russian, Chinese, and Romanian gangs centered in Boston want the code and all of them are hot on the trail. Violence is their language―brutality, their technique. Michael Knight, with a little help from his senior law partner Lex Devlin and his crony, Billy Coyne, Boston’s deputy district attorney, is hired to see that the treasure lands in the rightful place.

Best-selling author John F. Dobbyn, a graduate of Harvard College, Boston College Law School, and Harvard Law School, is a former professor of law at Villanova Law School where he taught criminal, constitutional, and corporate law. Prior to his teaching career, Dobbyn practiced criminal and civil trial work. He is frequent contributor to Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine, and he is the author of six award-winning legal thrillers featuring Michael Knight and Lex Devlin. Dobbyn is a Boston native and now resides in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Lois.
