Steve Martini's usual suspense. Don't know "who-done-it" until near the end.
This was about Dr.Crone who is accused of murdering his colleague, Kalista Jordan. He is accused of murdering her because she accused him of sexual harassment. Paul Madriani is defending Crone. The trial is not going their way. Too much circumstancial against Crone. Madriani knows Crone because he asked him to help friends of his whos daughter has Huntingtons Chorea. Crone is a scientist who does genetic research. Again, as stated in other comments regarding Martinis books, I like them because he is great at explaining legal jargon in laymans terms. The book is pretty good at keeping you in the dark as to the whodunit. You can figure it out if you pay attention. I liked this one
Fairly good read. Some suspense, not all ho-hum.
The first of Paul Madrini-in-San Diego novels (Paul was previously located in Sacramento)
Great story of who did it- Keeps you guessing from the very beginning.
In THE JURY Paul Madriani takes on the case of Dr. David Crone, a respected geneticist accused of murdering his young colleague. An incriminating note left behind by a dead key witness seems to confirm Crone's innocence.....but...
Lawyer Paul Madriani is called upon to defend a brilliant research physician-who just may be a killer-in this riveting novel by the bestselling author of The Attorney...
Paul Madriani takes on the case of Dr. David Crone, a respected geneticist accused of murdering his young colleague.
The Paul Madriani series is great.
I very much enjoyed the book. Typical Martini with the twist at the end!
Loved this! It just reminded me that I haven't been keeping up with Steve Martini's books the last few years. Paul Madriani is just as interesting and human as ever, and his side-kick Harry is just as humorous. Mystery of the murder kept me in the dark until the very end.
Everything by Martini is great. This is no exception.
Madriani, still struggling to establish his law practice in San Diego, is defending Dr. David Crone, a brilliant genetic researcher accused of killing colleague Kalista Jordan: her strangled and dismembered body was found washed up on a beach. Not only does all the evidence point to Crone, but his lies and deceptions are starting to test the patience of Madriani and his partner, the quick-tempered Harry Hinds. There may be motives aplenty was Jordan stealing trade secrets about human genome research from Crone's clinic and taking them to a rival company?
My second Martini book. I like the 2 main characters, Paul and Harry. The story is not fast paced, but a good read. Martini has a way of giving surprize endings and this one follows suit.
Good courtroom drama, mystery
The SIXTH book in the series featuring Paul Madriani who is a defense attorney in California.
You will feel like you are on the jury! Exciting with lots of intrigue! Easy to read; hard to stop.
