The Attorney , which marked the return of Steve Martini's lawyer-sleuth Paul Madriani, was hailed for its "well-observed courtroom maneuverings" ( The Christian Science Monitor ) and "crisp dialogue and tart observations" ( Publishers Weekly ). Now Martini delivers the most daunting capital case of Madriani's career.

Paul Madriani has ample reason to suspect he's representing a guilty man. Dr. David Crone, a respected medical researcher and principal in mapping the human genome, is charged with the murder of a young colleague: twenty-six-year-old Kalista Jordan, an African-American research physician whose body washed up on a beach in San Diego Bay. Forensic evidence links her murder with material in Crone's garage. Crone had both opportunity and motive: Kalista had recently ended their affair, and may have been deserting him professionally as well, moving on to a rival genetic research facility. However, when a key witness for the prosecution dies unexpectedly, leaving an incriminating note behind, Crone's innocence seems confirmed-until Madriani hits upon a potentially damning loose end.

For starters, I have no clue why the book is called "The Jury" when it has nothing to do with the title. The author telegraphed the twist at the end of the plot almost since the middle of the book. Not a very good one

All trial mumbo jumbo, boring, couldn't force myself to finish it.

This was terrible. If you can make it past the prologue's first page and a half without vomiting all over yourself congrats!
