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.

    "Judge and Jury"

    This is a fast pace powerful book. James Patterson has done it again. It is pulled from the pages of the Godfather and Sapranos. I haven't finished it but I can't wait to get back on my bike and finish listening to it.

    "Slightly Disappointed"

    Is James Patterson spreading himself a little too thin these days? My husband and I have been a fan for years, but this book fell a little short of what we have come to expect. The ending seemed "formula" and rushed; as if needing to make a deadline. With that said, Judge and Jury is still a good mystery. I like the Pelasante character and Montengna's narration is brilliant.

    "Loved It!"

    I thought this was his best until I started reading Step On a Crack. Now I'm not sure which is his best. He just keeps getting better and better. I love the fact that most of his books are written where I grew up, Long Island and New York City. I can see all the places clearly as he describes them, and his dialogue is almost as good as Pat Conroy's.

    "slow starter"

    This book started off too slow, but picked up aboout one third of the way through. Ending was a bit of a stretch. Reader was average.

    "Just bearable ... pass on this book"

    I read Patterson for light diversion and I have never expected from him a literary tour de force, but this book was almost unbearable. Suspense and action novels sometimes call for a suspension of belief on certain matters but the good ones draw you into a world that is credible and interesting. Judge and Jury has no credibility. Every bad guy is superhuman. They can be old men and take a bullet in the shoulder, a three-story crash through a window, a fall in an icy crevice and still grapple like Hulk Hogan. The chapters are so short as to be annoying. The protagonist could be in the middle of a swing. One chapter might explain how he pulled back the arm and the next chapter begins with the punch itself. In print, this might be okay but on audio, it is as annoying as someone shutting off the TV and turing it back on every five minutes. You might still be able to make it through this book but I think you could do much better with your audible credits.

    "Not one of my favs:("
    What disappointed you about Judge & Jury?

    I didn't realize that this one was the same as the movie the Juror. I didn't like the movie either.


    What was most disappointing about James Patterson and Andrew Gross ’s story?

    I was disappointed that I already knew the story line.


    What does Joe Mantegna bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Joe Mantegna sounds like a mob boss, so he was a good pic for the book.

    "Thank You Joe Mantegna"

    This is a good story with typical Patterson energy and excitement. The award, however, goes to Joe Mantegna who narrated so effectively that after a chapter or two I forgot there was only one person reading! Characters stood out and their individual feelings and personalities became familiar. Mantegna never seemed to forget which character was speaking. It made me chuckle at the thought of him changing costumes for each one.

    All in all, Patterson seldom disappoints and in the case of Judge & Jury, Joe Mantegna makes sure of it.

    "Disappointing"

    This story was so implausible it was really hard to listen til the end. The reading of it was fine. It's just that where the authors take their characters is so darn unbelievable as to make you start laughing in disbelief at the plot fairly early on in the book. Others of Mr. Patterson's books are so much better written. I'm actually sorry I wasted points on this one.
