Michael Ponsor

presents his new novel

The One-Eyed Judge


 Judge David  Norcross, whom we met in  Michael Ponsor's earlier novel The Hanging Judge, deals with a case of child pornography in which the defendant is someone his girlfriend knows. Norcross wonders whether to recuse himself. Meanwhile his life is further  complicated when he  becomes responsible for his  two young nieces following a family tragedy, and  his personal and professional lives become complexly intertwined.  Michael Ponsor's nuanced understanding of the judicial system and the ways in which law is actually  administered are on display in this gripping second  Installment in the Judge Norcross series.


Michael Ponsor graduated from Harvard College and Yale Law School.  In 1994, President Bill Clinton appointed him a life-tenured US district judge. From 2000 to 2001, he presided over a five-month death penalty trial, the first in Massachusetts in over fifty years. Judge Ponsor serves as a senior US district judge in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, Western Division. His first novel was The Hanging Judge .
