Summary, etc.:
From New York's foremost bail bondsman with "over $30 million on the street" comes the story of a modern-day "fixer" who walks a fine line between hustler and humanitarian, with clients ranging from the rich and famous to the gangs of New York. The Fixer is a rollicking narrative that follows Ira Judelson as he learns the ins and outs of the down-and-dirty world of bail bonds. As the late great Johnnie Cochran once told him, "A lawyer can't get you out of jail; only a bondsman can." With from-the-gut prose, Judelson proves those words as he grows from process server to inside man. And he might just be the only thing standing between you and the injustice system, as only he knows which judge might let you slide, which lawyers will do pro bono for the right case, and which cops and DAs are open to second chances. But he also has many unwritten laws to share, including what to do and what not to do if you ever get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.--From publisher description.
