Patterson and Gross have written a story of a grizzled and dedicated FBI agent, who has finally obtained enough evidence to bring the head of a mafia crime organization to trial after many years. The book starts with jury selection and the introduction of Andi, a single mom actress who really does not want to serve on the jury. Twists and turns in the plot line continue through the end of the book, which retains interest in the continuing search for the mafioso. The authors' styles mix beautifully between the hard-nosed detetive's narratives and the beautiful descriptions of nature, as the main characters travel from New York to Israel to Chile. Read by Joe Mantenega, he gives just the right accents, the right inflections, the right nuance throughout. Engrossing and enjoyable!

This book renewed my faith in Mr Patterson. I was not a fan of his other series but when this audio book was given to me I thought I would give him another chance. I don't know if it was Joe Mantegna reading it (I love that guy) but my interest was held throughout. I loved the Sopranos series and this book is full of Mafia bad guys. I thought the ending was a bit weak and mushy but at least I wanted to listen to the end.

Another winner from James Patterson. A powerful mobster is captured and put on trial. And, after they are selected, bad things start happening to the jurors. Even the trial judge begins acting strangely and like she's being pressured. Will they cave in and give this dispicable mobster his freedom? Or, will justice prevail? There's quite a bit of courtroom drama, but it's a good read and well worth the time spent.

Not Pattersons best, but defintiely worth your time. It takes about 100 pages for the story to really get going, but once it does, its a good thrill ride that is typical Patterson. I would recommend this to any Patterson fan, or fan of suspense novels. Good beach read.

In my opinion, not one of his best. The details were not realistic. I work in a courtroom and I guarantee you there is no way a judge would ever talk to a juror off the record in chambers without counsel present. That is a mistrial waiting to happen.

Bestsellers Patterson and Gross (Lifeguard) once again deliver what their fans expect in this slapdash revenge thriller. When mob godfather Dominic Cavello is finally brought to trial by FBI agent Nick Pellisante, his longtime nemesis, the accused is strangely unconcerned even as a parade of his former criminal associates finger him as having ordered a hit on a corrupt businessman. The gangster's plan to intimidate the decision-makers at his trial reaches its climax when he arranges for a bomb to blow up the bus transporting the jury. The sole survivor teams up with Pellisante to make Cavello pay.

My mom called it a "hum-doozy", whatever that is. I guess it describes it pretty well. Action at every turn of the page all over the world. Not much more you could ask for from a thriller, really. FBI, mobsters, courtroom drama, vigilante justice. Yep, that just about covers it.

This is, in fact, the large print edition of this novel, purchased from the Large Print Book Club -- it is certainly easy to read! PBS wouldn't accept the actual isbn on the book so I just used the one from the regular-print novel. The novel is terrific, a fast moving and exciting plot -- recommended reading!

Another WOW book for me completed by James Patterson! This book was non-stop action from start to finish. It is Law N Order meets Sopranos all rolled into one. The book had passion! Thought and perfect timing on every point! The end was even better. Just when you thought it was all over it continued that extra leap. It made me wanting more for the book to continue on yet it was the PERFECT ending to a wonderful thrill ride! Way to go James Patterson on another awesome book!

Not Patterson at his best. Reads like a made for a movie script.
Especially when the hero has the assassin in his gun sight and shoots him in the leg (instead of shooting to kill) and the assassin then chases the hero through the town with a bullet in his leg. Enough, already!
