Great Books Don't Promote Violence
While some of dialogue was amusing, the basic plot of Due Justice did not work for me. When federal judge Willa (mid 40s) was told by a family friend that she has information about a murder, she doesn't immediately inform the police.
Instead of a legal drama, this book was basically an amateur detective story starring a really smart lawyer who just wanted to play Columbo. Willa didn't appear to have any respect for our justice system, which seemed strange for a sitting judge.
Since I couldn't relate to the main character, I had a difficult time concentrating. When the murderer was finally revealed, I was unimpressed and relieved that it was over.
While I enjoyed the book & performance the day,date, time to the second as well as the location, at the start of each chapter, drove me nuts and made me doubt if I would listen to another book by this author
