This is a good thriller because it keeps you guessing until virtually the last page. David Sloane is a no-nonsense attorney who 'plays' a jury to get clients cleared of negligence suits. One day he gets a call from a guy named Joe Branick. This call it important because it is the last call Branick made before 'supposedly' committing suicide. Sloane is haunted by recurring dreams of helplessly trying to save the same woman from an unruly mob. The call from Branick stirs up more memories. Meanwhile, Branick's death is being investigated by a detective Molia who is also concerned about the death of police officer Cooperman who responded to a call to the scene of Branick's 'suicide.' Molia is told by some Feds to stop investigating and turn everything over to them. Of course, curiousity gets the best of Molia and a sense of seeking justice for Cooperman so he continues to investigate anyway. Meanwhile the call to Sloane and a package from Branick that arrived by mail set off calls to military type assasins to get the package from Sloane and take care of him. Eventually, Sloane and Molia will meet up and make on odd pairing to go after the bad guys. There is a lot of good action with vivid descriptions and the author does a good job of keeping the suspense going. A good read.

    Smooth plot, unbelievable story

    The jacket makes a big deal out of David Sloane's almost supernatural ability to sway juries to verdicts they might otherwise not have arrived at. And the first dozen or so pages of the novel describe that ability. But no mention of it is made again until just before the end of this rather unbelievable tale, and then not in anything close to a legal context. <BR/><BR/>There are no holes in the storyline; you can follow it without any difficulty. But the coincidences and conspiracies keep on coming, one after the other, without any letup. This book makes David Baldacci's "The Camel Club" look like a piece of classic literature. The only reason it gets three stars is because of the seamless storyline and the action sequences.

    Jury Master

    This is a ho hum thriller that is made possibility by a wonderful cast who seem kinda real especially the attorney and former FBI on the loose and their relentless adversaries. The story line is battle-packed from the moment that Sloane prevails his latest case and only slows down once in the final chapter, when he gets together in Seattle with a Bird poster and Sam the dog. A must read.
