PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- William L. Myers Jr. is a Philadelphia lawyer and now a best-selling author, out with his third book, A Killers Alibi.

"All my books are set in Philadelphia. I love Philadelphia. I know the justice system here and so all the trials take place over at the Criminal Justice Center, which anyone who reads these books and is from Philadelphia will recognize,” Myers explained. “Sometimes I put restaurants in because I like certain restaurants and when you are reading the book you may say, ‘Oh, I know that restaurant, I've eaten at that restaurant.’ And streets, I am very accurate about streets.”

His books have sold over a half million copies. His first book, A Criminal Defense was a bestselling book on Kindle.

Myers says Amazon called him up to tell him about his book’s success.

“‘You are number six. Congratulations,’” he said. “My agent said, ‘To be that high on my very first book for the whole year was something she had never seen before.’”
