The Novel

Criminal Defense Attorney, Russell Babcock, has written his first full length novel, “The Blind Mule.” While this is a work of fiction, it draws heavily from his experience as a trial attorney of thirty years and one of the most preeminent defenders of blind mules, those who without their knowledge transport drugs into this country. Much of the novel takes place in the courtroom. Mr. Babcock has made all courtroom scenes and procedures very accurate.

“The Blind Mule” is a faced paced novel that takes place in San Diego, Tijuana, and Colombia. It is sure to thrill the reader with the twists and turns and suspense of who could have planted the drugs in the vehicle. Only at the end of the story does the reader finally learn the true fate of the blind mule.
