The Sharkfish Man

Paul A. Kazakov

The Sharkfish Man follows The Narcissus Touch in which a defence lawyer is accused of murdering his own client in the middle of a civil fraud trial in Calgary, Alberta. The crown prosecutor, Lloyd Nagano, whose nickname is 'Sharkfish', is satisfied with the guilt of the accused, but proving it becomes uncertain when an intermeddling judge attempts to tip the scales of justice. In the interim, Michael Bolta and Jacobus (Jake) Barton, the plaintiff's counsel in the fraud litigation, have to not only defend themselves from becoming implicated, but deal with their own personal issues involving two strong-willed women.

Paul A. Kazakov graduated from law school in 1978 and was initially employed as a sessional instructor in law for two years. After forty years of practicing civil litigation, he retired in 2020 and finally returned to his initial interest: creative writing.

He quickly realized that composing fiction was not the same as drafting a legal factum or a legal brief, though the fundamentals remained the same. The Narcissus Touch is his first effort, and it is the first instalment of a legal trilogy. The Sharkfish Man and Prodigal Passion are to follow.

The author resides in Calgary, Alberta with his partner and muse, Nancy Brager. He has one son, Mark, who holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and is actively engaged in musical theater.
