“You learn early that you don’t get to prove your case with Boy Scouts and nuns. Yes, convicted felons will say anything to get out of jail, but they also know a lot.” Plea bargains may grease the rails of justice, but for Jamie Brock, prosecuting criminals is not about cutting deals. In her three years as assistant DA, she’s never plea-bargained a case and vows she never will. But when an infamous defense attorney is indicted for murder and devises a way to bring the entire justice system to a screeching halt, Jamie finds herself at a crossroads. One by one, prisoners begin rejecting deals. Prosecutors are overwhelmed, and felons start walking free on technicalities. To break the logjam and convict her nemesis, Jamie must reevaluate every principle that has guided her young career. But she has little choice. To convict the devil, sometimes you have to cut a deal with one of his demons.

I love Randy Singer. This book was well read and entertaining. Kept me guessing to the very end.
Another great legal/christian story. The narrator was great, with emphasis & inflections appropriate when needed. I always enjoy Singer's novels & this was a truly a surprise ending!
This is a pretty good listen. Some of the story line is predictable but over all I was entertained. I would listen to another Randy Singer
Loved this book. one of Randy's best. It kept me interested all the way through to the end. It was informative and had a good ending. I kept pace and loved the audible reader. She is one of the best I have heard.
I struggled with this book. I found the narrator/main character to be a bit of a prude, someone I really didn't like. So I struggled to go with her on the story. But it did end with a bit of a twist. And overall was entertaining.
The story was extremely well-written and the plot masterfully crafted.
This is such a great audiobook that I missed exits several times while listening. Although the story line is somewhat complex it is written and presented in a fashion that lends itself to everyday readers/listeners. The best audiobook I have ever purchased.
Randy SInger's books continue to get even better over time. Can't imagine how he could improve on this one.
This was not as good as some of his previous books. It was just ok. Not as much suspense as I came to expect from Randy Singer.
A better narrator.
Aside from the narration, the story - or what I could get through - was not really pulling me in. But, it may have picked up after I stopped listening. Having said that, the setting chosen by the author - of a fictitious county in the heart of Atlanta - was unrealistic and uncreditable. Anyone who knows, or lives in the Atlanta area, would agree that politics just isn't the way the author describes it here.
Maybe the narrator is from the South, I don't know. But her version of a Southern accent was so bad, I couldn't listen anymore.
The story is predictable and the characters are poorly develop
Balance and develop the characters and make the story less predictable
She read Ok
Start from scratch
Same your money or credits for a good book
A book that has twist, turns and drama without being cliche. Randy Singer has over night become one of my favorite authors. I think Tavia Gilbert's narration is perfect for the character of Jamie and she isn't too shabby with male voices either.
A must read!
