    In The 13th Juror, Dismas Hardy, lawyer/investigator, undertakes the defense of Jennifer Witt, accused of murdering her husband and their eight-year-old son as well as her first husband, who had died nine years earlier from an apparent drug overdose. While preparing his case, Hardy learns that both of Jennifer's husbands had physically abused her. But Jennifer refuses to allow a defense that presumes her guilt. She is not guilty, she claims. Hardy is now driven to seek an alternative truth a jury can believe.

    Jane says: "Another first rate author-reader collaboration"

    When I originally downloaded this book, I didn't get it all. This time I did. Well, it was long, but it kept going and really picked up to a fast pace at the end. Unexpected twist at the end. Great read.

    Nestled among Seattle's skyscrapers, The Zephyr Holdings Building is a bleak rectangle topped by an orange-and-black logo that gives no hint of Zephyr's business. Lack of clarity, it turns out, is Zephyr's defining characteristic. The floors are numbered in reverse. No one has ever seen the CEO or glimpsed his office on the first (i.e., top) floor. Yet every day people clip on their ID tags, file into the building, sit at their desks, and hope that they're not about to be outsourced.

    Overall

    I like my books to be entertaining, interesting, exciting, funny, or thrilling. This book was none of those. I like to give books a chance to get going, so 4 or 5 hours into the book the hero finally escaped from the rat race and did something exciting. Unfortunately that only lasted 20 min or so and then it went back to the same old thing. If you like reading about workers acting like rats in a cage while the company execs manipulate them to see how they will react, this book may be something you would like, otherwise don't waste your time. I gave it a fair chance, 7 hours, but psychological manipulation just isn't something I enjoy.

    Pender Associates is a shadowy organization that specializes in managing seemingly impossible situations for its clients. Sometimes, those services extend to managing - and creating - armed conflict.

    "Great book!"
    Overall

    I have now listened to about 10 of audible's books in the last few months. This one was one of the best. I still remember what happened even though I've listened to 4 books since then. I usually can't remember them, but this one was so good, it's hard to forget. Lots of action, twists and turns, and a very unusual plot.
