JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Could a Jackson lawyer be the next John Grisham with his newly released book hitting the shelves?

 Attorney Richard Schwartz signed copies of his first literary venture "Two Dead and Counting" Saturday afternoon.

He chatted with fans and autographed his first release at Lemuria Books in Jackson.

The story is about a detective who stumbles on a crime about a lawyer and doctor who are involved in false malpractice schemes.

The personal injury lawyer said the book took him five years to complete.

"I people will be interested in the book simply because it has a combination of legal work and also medical, but it has so many turns and twists that I don't think the reader's gonna know really what happened until three quarters of the book," said Schwartz.

The fledgling author said "Two Dead and Counting" is the first in a series of books about the detective. One thousand copies were printed.
