Overview

The legal duo of O'Clare and Gold have just completed the successful defense of Gold's boyhood friend, Big Ben Friedman, on a murder charge. But no sooner has the trial ended than Mairead receives a mysterious phone call from Juror Number Eleven saying she must see her right away.

When Mairead arrives at Conchita Balaguer's house, all she finds is an unlocked door-and Juror Number Eleven's lifeless body. The prime suspect is none other than Big Ben Friedman. And this time, a "not guilty" verdict seems far from certain.

Jeffery Deaver called Terry Devane's first courtroom thriller "sly and brilliant." With Juror Number Eleven, Devane delivers another winner.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
No sooner are criminal defense aces Sheldon Gold and Mairead O'Clare successful at getting Boston gangster Big Ben Friedman acquitted of murder than the eponymous Juror Number Eleven is found dead in her home just after she places an urgent call for help to O'Clare. Terry Devane's sophomore legal thriller brings back O'Clare and Gold and their support staff not to mention a host of colorful witnesses and suspects, from an elderly doctor who looks like Yoda and has a penchant for 20th-century Russian composers to a once-blind hardware store owner who miraculously regained his sight for another round of sleuthing, courtroom drama, rapid-fire dialogue and wry humor. (Putnam, $24.95 320p ISBN 0-399-14886-8) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Boston attorneys Gold and O'Clare (Uncommon Justice, 2001) for the defense again, this time to help their favorite gangster client beat a murder rap. Gold's a middle-aged Jew, O'Clare a female Irish-American Catholic; their office manager is a female African-American; and their chief investigator is an Italian-American ex-homicide cop, recently out of the closet. All this diversity is crammed into the little law firm that could-could beat legal behemoths of every description, that is, because its collective heart is pure and its store of energy boundless. These are qualities that remain intact even in behalf of an unmitigated slob like Big Ben Friedman, even when the murder that this notorious racketeer stands charged with is particularly nasty, the arranged killing of a child. Gold and O'Clare get him off, all right, but their victory is tainted by what has the appearance, at least, of jury tampering. The eponymous Juror #11, hot-looking Conchita Balaguer, has spent a disproportionate amount of trial-time gazing significantly at Mairead O'Clare, who has found the attention both mystifying and unsettling. The prosecution, however, considers it a dead giveaway: Conchita's been bribed, it seems clear to ADA Jim Seagraves, hot-looking in his own way though dimwitted and bombastic as fictional prosecutors so often are. The trial ends. Mairead, in her office, prepping for her next win, is interrupted by a phone call. Conchita wants to hire her, Mairead learns to her astonishment, and there's big money in the offer. Agreeing to meet at Conchita's house, Mairead arrives to find her prospective client strung from the beam of a cathedral ceiling. Naturally, ADA Seagraves fingers bad Big Ben forthis crime, too, but after multiple plot- and sub-plot twists, not a few of them extraneous, the little law firm that could, does. Gold and O'Clare have their charm, but they tread the same old legal-thriller ground as ever, and busy readers might entertain a motion to dismiss.

    exciting realistic legal thriller

    Even a gangster deserves a proper legal defense and Shel Gold agrees with that principle when he agrees to represent his childhood friend Ben Friedman on a murder charge. Shel and his associate Mairead O¿Clare manage to convince the jury that their client is innocent but during the testimony and the reading of the verdict, JUROR NUMBER ELEVEN constantly stares at Mairead. <P> When that same Juror Conchita calls Mairead to visit her at her home on a matter unrelated to the trial, the lawyer reluctantly agrees. When she arrives at the home, she find Chita¿s lifeless body hanging from a rope. The police rule it a homicide and when they find the victim deposited $10,000 in cash into her savings account, they think that Ben tampered with a juror and then killed her to keep from talking. When Ben is charged with Chita¿s murder, Shel and his associate must find the actual killer if they hope to gain a second acquittal for their client. <P> JUROR NUMBER ELEVEN is a very realistic legal thriller starring characters it is very easy to like. Readers get to see what is involved in preparing for trial and what is involved in presenting a case. It is even effortless to like the self-admitted gangster because the reader feels the police and the district attorney¿s office are using his reputation against him, making seem loke a scapegoat. Terry Devane is a new and shining light in the legal thriller constellation. <P>Harriet Klausner
