A committee of creditors hires 3J, one of whom is the leader of a White Nationalist organization on the government’s domestic terrorist list. When the member realizes he will not get paid back everything he is owed, he blames 3J, a black attorney, and opposing counsel, a Jewish attorney. How far will the hater go to get paid back and what steps will he take to do so in the name of White Nationalism?




“All the books in the series read well on their own as each book features a distinct standalone case, but I highly recommend readers also pick up the first book, Fresh Start and the second book, Automatic Stay to experience the full scope of this amazing series. As with the first two books, Mark Shaiken has set the gold standard for modern legal thrillers with his propulsive five-star work in Unfair Discrimination.”

Reader Views

“There are plenty of twists throughout the narrative, and the cat-and-mouse game . .  keeps the pages flying. . . . Your next-must-read legal thriller.”

Prairies Review

“[B]lack history is blended smoothly into this intriguing storyline. Unfair Discrimination is a richly blended and enjoyable reading experience. Kudos to Shaiken for this impressive work.”

Reader Views

“Shaiken uses each book’s plot to highlight different societal, technological, and professional challenges – challenges that vary greatly but are equally fascinating, occurring in real time, and even more than a bit scary. . . Shaiken’s writing on this thorny-but-captivating topic keeps the reader turning the pages and guessing, ensuring that his latest entry in the 3J series lives up to the bar set by books one and two.”

Cindi W., Amazon

“Shaiken deftly paints in interesting, lovable, and even hateful characters, builds the excitement, then hits a satisfying and enthralling climax. It’s a great book.”

P. Logan, Amazon

“The novel has a mixture of mystery, justice and drama that I really liked. It was difficult to know what was going to happen next because there were many twists and turns that were unpredictable.”

Mia C., Amazon

“Shaiken weaves an intriguing plot that draws its heartbeat from a tale of vengeance, deceit, love, sacrifices, blackmail, threats, spicy romance, legal battles, money, greed, and cunning strategies… The masterfully crafted cast was authentic in every way.”

Readers’ Favorite

“Mark creates fascinating characters who, simply by being, create forceful dramas that incorporate law, history, the Midwest (Kansas City, Missouri) atmosphere and influence on jazz, and the dark internet media influences. . . . At a time when all media forms are focusing on racism and political vagaries and nepotism, . . . Shaiken offers a demonstrative story that captures those aspects. He has found his niche and we are the winners! Very highly recommended.”
