Legal thriller Black Diamond

Black Diamond, a legal thriller set in Boston against the backdrop of the high-stakes horse racing world, is the third novel by Boston College Law School alumnus John F. Dobbyn ’65. It centers on two lawyers who agree to defend a jockey accused of murdering a fellow jockey during a race at Suffolk Downs, but find themselves in the middle of a violent conflict between Boston’s Irish mafia and remnants of the terrorist branch of the Irish Republican Army. New York Times best-selling author Lisa Scottoline lauds the thriller: “…Black Diamond takes you on a non-stop ride that keeps you gripping the wheel.” For more information on Dobbyn, a Boston native, and his books, visit
