Not Pattersons best, but defintiely worth your time. It takes about 100 pages for the story to really get going, but once it does, its a good thrill ride that is typical Patterson. I would recommend this to any Patterson fan, or fan of suspense novels. Good beach read.

Another winner from James Patterson. A powerful mobster is captured and put on trial. And, after they are selected, bad things start happening to the jurors. Even the trial judge begins acting strangely and like she's being pressured. Will they cave in and give this dispicable mobster his freedom? Or, will justice prevail? There's quite a bit of courtroom drama, but it's a good read and well worth the time spent.

Bestsellers Patterson and Gross (Lifeguard) once again deliver what their fans expect in this slapdash revenge thriller. When mob godfather Dominic Cavello is finally brought to trial by FBI agent Nick Pellisante, his longtime nemesis, the accused is strangely unconcerned even as a parade of his former criminal associates finger him as having ordered a hit on a corrupt businessman. The gangster's plan to intimidate the decision-makers at his trial reaches its climax when he arranges for a bomb to blow up the bus transporting the jury. The sole survivor teams up with Pellisante to make Cavello pay.

FBI agent Nick Pellisante has made it his life's work to nab Dominic Cavello, a viscious mobster known as "The Electrician". But when he finally arrests him at a Cavello family wedding, two of Nick's closest colleagues are killed during the sting. Nick vows that Cavello will spend the rest of his life behind bars, but at the trial, Cavello's strong arm tactics make it impossible for the jury to speak out and convict him. Then a professional assassin with a talent for explosives makes sure they keep silent for good. Juror#11, single mom Andie DeGrasse, is the only survivor and now has a very personal reason to get Cavello. She and Nick will stop at nothing to bring the ruthless mobster to justice, even if it means taking the law into their own hands.

For fans of James Patterson, this is another thriller guaranteed to keep you guessing until the last page is turned.
reviewed Judge & Jury on
While this book was a page-turner and an easy read, I found almost all of it to be unbelievable - including the antagonist, Domenic Cavello. A mafia boss has a wife and children, Mr. Cavello does not. And since I don't want to give away anything that happens in the book, I will just say that he would NEVER divulge his whereabouts...

But still an enjoyable read!

A great Patterson read. Compelling, interesting and full of twists but not so complicated that you can't put it down and pick it up again quickly. Great new characters.
Nellie avatar reviewed Judge & Jury on + 12 more book reviews
In my opinion, not one of his best. The details were not realistic. I work in a courtroom and I guarantee you there is no way a judge would ever talk to a juror off the record in chambers without counsel present. That is a mistrial waiting to happen.

My mom called it a "hum-doozy", whatever that is. I guess it describes it pretty well. Action at every turn of the page all over the world. Not much more you could ask for from a thriller, really. FBI, mobsters, courtroom drama, vigilante justice. Yep, that just about covers it.

Not Patterson at his best. Reads like a made for a movie script.
Especially when the hero has the assassin in his gun sight and shoots him in the leg (instead of shooting to kill) and the assassin then chases the hero through the town with a bullet in his leg. Enough, already!

Another WOW book for me completed by James Patterson! This book was non-stop action from start to finish. It is Law N Order meets Sopranos all rolled into one. The book had passion! Thought and perfect timing on every point! The end was even better. Just when you thought it was all over it continued that extra leap. It made me wanting more for the book to continue on yet it was the PERFECT ending to a wonderful thrill ride! Way to go James Patterson on another awesome book!

This is, in fact, the large print edition of this novel, purchased from the Large Print Book Club -- it is certainly easy to read! PBS wouldn't accept the actual isbn on the book so I just used the one from the regular-print novel. The novel is terrific, a fast moving and exciting plot -- recommended reading!
