Publisher's Summary

David Sloane is the best wrongful death attorney in San Francisco. He's a lawyer who can make juries do anything. But despite his professional success, he's plagued by a nightmare of a childhood he cannot consciously remember. When he receives a package from a White House confidant who then turns up dead by apparent suicide, the contents reveal a history he never could have imagined. Now, in search of justice, Sloane must depend on two men he's never met: Charles Jenkins, a former CIA agent turned recluse who suffers the same nightmare; and Tom Molia, a police detective willing to take on just about anyone, including the U.S. Department of Justice. Together, these men must expose a 30-year conspiracy so insidious that it may reach as far as the Oval Office and topple a presidency, if they can stay alive.

What the Critics Say

"All of Dugoni's characters have a fresh and believable edge, and there is plenty of action in far-flung settings." (Publishers Weekly)
"The action keeps coming, so omnivorous thrill seekers who favor Martini and Grisham may want to give Dugoni a look." (Booklist)

    "Great!"

    Fast read. Not your typical lawyer novel; He is in the court room at the beginning and the end of the book. It has a lot of tist and turns. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to his next

    "Good Book, Great Reader"

    First, Robertson Dean has a fabulous voice, he could read the phone book and I would probably like it! Second the book was very engaging. It had many plot twists, good characters, and espionage right up to the president of the USA. The surprises continued right until the very last page. I recommend it for anyone who listens to a lot of mystery/thrillers.

    "Loved it"

    Fast paced, kept my interest. Ties together beautifully in the end; does NOT leave you wondering what happened. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a good suspense/mystery.

    "Too tense for me"

    Those who love cliffhangers more than I do will be happy to hear that I found this one unbearably on-edge. Skilled story tellers -- like Spielberg, Peters, Patterson -- will have moments of comfort and camaraderie, where you let your guard down, and then jump up and smack you. With Dugoni, there are no such respites. You aren't safe from the moment you start the book. And horrible things continuously happen to good people, which isn't my cup of tea.

    AUDIO: Better than most.

    "Action! Action! Action!"

    This book is certainly full of action and short chapters. I usually love a book that has both. But this one bothered me. There were so many characters and so MUCH action that I found it hard to follow. I did a lot of "rewinding". Each chapter told a different part of the plot and it got confusing.
    I also found the ending abrupt and left unanswered questions for me.

    "Finished but just Barely!"

    The story starts fine and sets the stage for a good legal thriller, but then the book rambles on and on with unoriginal characters, and with a very implausible storyline. The story slows down to a crawl at times that I nearly gave up! The author could have cut down on the length of the story and also on so much extended dialogue which would have given the story much more zip. Maybe next time, although I'm not sure I'd go for another book of his.

    "Had to remember to breathe!"
    If you could sum up Jury Master in three words, what would they be?

    Fast-paced action; compelling characters; twists and turns that kept me glued to my headphones. Glad to discover another great mystery writer!

    "Action-packed book deserved better narration"

    I found this book difficult to get into.The storyline was compelling and suspenseful, and the characters were interesting, but the narration by Robertson Dean was mind-numbing. When listening to an audio book, I find distinctive voice characterizations a necessity. They distinguish the characters and help provide clean breaks from one scene or chapter to the next, especially in novels like this one which contain a lot of action and cut-scenes.

    More than a few times, I found myself wondering who was speaking since the same voice is used for most characters, male and female alike. It also seemed as if character voices changed from time to time based on the different mix of characters in a scene.

    So, while I thoroughly enjoyed the book itself, which was literally non-stop action, I would suggest giving the sample audio a listen before adding it to your cart.

    Based on the story alone, I would definitely listen to another Robert Dugoni book providing it was read by a different narrator.
