The Tenth Justice was very good. I like the title and learned a lot about the Supreme Court even though this is a fictitious book.
I enjoy listening to this author!
A meandering story that built to almost nothing. Outside the small thriller component, probably an accurate look at the workaday Supreme Court.
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
In the top 20. It was a great listen. I highly recommend this book.
How I could never figure out the ending. Just when I did, the ruthless one changed.
As stated above I recommend this book. This is Meltzer's best one so far.
Great story line but took unnecessary and stupid plot tangents and the relationships among the mail characters were entirely unrealistic.
No, this is one of my favorite genres, I will give Meltzer one more try before being turned off of him.
Scott Brick is the only thing that saves this from being unbearable.
The initial story idea was fantastic and captivating, I just felt like it could have been told much better.
I could only listen to the first 3 chapters of this book before I deleted it. The behavior of the main characters was incredibly rude, sexist, and ultra-frat-boy. Their emotional development must have been arrested sometime during high school. In fact, they were so obnoxious it made me hope that bad things WOULD happen to them.
I also found the decisions made by the main character were totally unbelievable for a young man whose accomplishments were so outstanding he was selected among thousands to work for a Supreme Court Justice.
I'm willing to overlook a lot of inconsistencies in a suspense book, but The Tenth Justice went way past my tolerance level.
The narration was overly dramatic and irritating. The story was often also filled with non-sensical interactions between the characters. None of the characters were like-able. If you like smart aleck friends being sarcastic with each other, this is your book. Barely made it through.
