Good characters, tense and complex plot, a resolution that "played fair" and tied up all the loose ends in some surprising ways. I definitely want to read the rest of this author's books featuring California lawyer Paul Madriani!

Attorney Paul Madriani is the unlikely defense lawyer for an old nemesis. Judge Armando "the Coconut" Acosta is arrested on charges of soliciting prostitution in a sting operation for "johns," and few, including Paul Madriani, who has a long history of enmity with the judge, are sympathetic. Abandoned by his friends on the Capital County bench, Acosta is forced, in an ironic twist, to ask Paul to save his career from impending doom. Paul initially rejects Acosta's pleas, but when Acosta's original defense lawyer is forced off the case by a zealous district attorney looking for revenge, Paul is required to step forward and defend the judge.
As the case proceeds, the young female deputy reserve officer who snared the judge is found brutally murdered, and Acosta is the prime suspect. The reason? The officer was the only person who could give evidence against the judge. With his client now charged with murder, Paul faces the most daunting, disturbing, and complex case of his career.

This is not my usual type of mystery...I usually go for the lighter cozies...but this was very good. It had wonderful court room scenes and the entire story was fast paced and never bogged you down. It was read by the actor Stanley Tucci, who did a wonderful job. Thumbs up!
