Born in New York City, Philip Friedman is a lawyer who writes in his spare time. He obtained his A.B. from Princeton University and his law degree from New York University School of Law. It was during his law school years that he first got the chance to write, by collaborating with a film school student, Dan Kleinman, on a short film. He later worked with Kleinman on a movie called Rage, which Friedman adapted as a novel the same year the film came out, 1972. It tells the story of a sheep rancher who is poisoned by nerve gas as a result of secret U.S. Army tests. Friedman wrote a fictional account of the assasination of John F. Kennedy in Act of Love, Act of War. More than a decade later, this book was followed by Reasonable Doubt, in 1990, and Inadmissable Evidence, in 1992, both about murder trials. He has also written a television series, The Story of Billy Clay.
