Watch out Jim Grippando -- Sacher Zelman litigator Alan Rolnick is nipping at your heels.
Alan's new book, Landmark Status, just hit the streets and it promises to be a very interesting read. From Amazon's page on the book comes this blurb:
Landmark Status careens madly through a subtropical tangle of legal actions, spirits, spells, kung fu, car wrecks, football, phobias, fetishes, wooden flutes, pet rabbits and vintage aircraft, while the fate of Miami's famed Century Club hangs in the balance. Once a notorious nightspot, the Club just awoke from decades of slumbering decay-thanks to a local building boom. Now everybody's scrambling to bury it under a fabulous high-rise.Alan's been busy lately. He is also the Executive Producer of a new indie film coming out in October, Canvas.
Lawyer Benjy Bluestone couldn't care less, but a client owns the Club and seeks his help. It gets easier to say yes when he learns that beautiful broker Delia Torres is involved, even though she represents a developer who's furious to find the Club's been optioned to a rival. Benjy and Delia soon discover her client will stop at nothing to turn that option into "something so ugly the tide won't take it out." Racing the clock, they join forces on the road to Opa-locka, where a violent confrontation threatens to blow the deal sky high.
"Move over, Carl Hiaasen! This brilliantly funny romp through the 'real' Miami will have you howling with laughter and booking your trip to South Beach. You're gonna love it!"
-Michael Levin, author of Soft Target
About the Author
Alan H. Rolnick grew up in a sleepy river town playing baseball and Beatles songs, wishing he lived someplace different. Twenty years of law practice in Miami, whose heart-stopping beauty and self-absorbed chaos challenged him daily to figure out where on earth he was, left no doubt he’d gotten his wish.
Congratulations Alan -- we wish you much success with the book and the film!
