Publisher's Summary

Senior FBI agent Nick Pellisante is closing in on the notorious mob boss "The Electrician", when the scheduled sting goes spectacularly awry. Two FBI agents are dead, the boss is wounded, and Pellisante vows the Electrician's next move will be from a jail cell.

Andie Echeverra, a part-time actress and a single, full-time mom, is assigned her next role as Juror #11 in the landmark trial against Mafia Don Dominic Cavello. Everybody is on edge. No one has ever crossed the man whose orders have made entire families disappear.

Though Cavello's influence extends across blue uniforms and black robes, the case should be open-and-shut. But the legal system fails with devastating results, and Nick and Andie are the only ones left to seek justice. To stop the Electrician, they must take matters into their own hands. They are the judge and jury now.

James Patterson spins an all-out heart-pounding legal thriller that pits two people against the most vicious and powerful mobster since John Gotti.

    "At last, J.P. is back."

    This book was soooo...much better than Beach Road. It was exciting, well narrated, with decent character development. The bad guys were 100% evil. You will have to suspend reality at times, but it was still a very good listen. Also, I actually liked the sound effects.

    "exciting"

    This was a great book to listen to. Patterson's last book really disappointed me, but this one change my feelings. It kept me entertained and just was so much better than his last book. If you need a good book, this one is it.

    "Sweet Sucess By All"

    An exciting, twisting, mystery spun with clarity and without confusion . Yes, it made me guess. It was at times startling then softand tender. Splendid presentation by a great actor. Grabbed hold with the first words. Difficult not to listen.
    Great, Patterson has left the beach

    "Too predictable"

    The good guys were a little too good, and the bad guys a little too bad. I agree with the earlier review comments that the bad guys were unbelievably superhuman, supposedly for effect. At one point, I found myself saying, "just shoot the guy and get this over". Why would the hero shoot the bodyguards without hesitation yet babble on and let the really bad guy get away?

    I also found the dialogue was a bit smarmy with the love interests.

    "A disappointment"

    I listen to several books each month and, with this one, I ended up fast forwarding to the end to get it over with. I like Patterson's early work, but the most recent books that I have read have been boiler plate and pretty predictable. I tend to like the characters despite the fact they are fairly one dimensional. I also agree with other reviewers that, while I enjoy Mantegna as an actor, as a narrator he tends to be a bit too over the top at times and therefore sounds inauthentic. Generally, this book was a disappointment to me, but certainly not the worst I have read/listened to!

    "Judge and Jury"

    If there is a market for such (expletive) as this, then H.L. Mencken's famous line is confirmed:

    NOBODY EVER WENT BROKE UNDERESTIMATING THE TASTES OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC
