A great concept given all the current TV judges. If you are willing to suspend belief and just enjoy the story it is a OK listen, despite a few trite plot lines.
I'm a fan of C.Buckley. Love how he uses irony to poke fun at government--both conservative and liberal. And Ann Heche was a surprise to me. I cannot imagine any other narrator so fully capturing our "heroine"'s essence. And she "GOT" Buckley's point of view to the letter. I'm thinking of "gifting" Ms. Sotomayer with the audio book. I'm sure she'd get a kick out of it. Sure, the legal constraints, rules, cases are all fictionalized, but that's the fun. That's the ART! Have fun with this book!
