    Frightening scenario of how a demented Judge can influence a case.

    I found this a fascinating book that kept my interest from the very beginning. The story was told in a way that explained the psychotic behaviour of Superior Court Judge Thomas Marconi. The story also reinforced my belief in the jury system, which can remedy the injustices that a demented Judge can try to inflict on a plaintiff perceived to be guilty, by his standards. I honestly believe that if the book was written by a well known author,it would be on the Times Best Seller list.

    A Brilliant Pageturner

    I could not put this book down. 'The Judgment of Thomas' is so many things -- courtroom drama, war epic, psychological thriller. What's amazing is that author Howard Stern is clearly a master of each genre. All of the characters are memorable, especially the title character Thomas, who is one of the most compelling creations I've read in recent fiction. Stern takes you deep inside this fascinating, maniacal character's head and you won't be able to put the book down until you see just what he is ultimately capable of. This is a completely fresh take on the legal thriller. Stern immediately proves he's worthy of comparisons to Grisham and Turow. Highly recommended.

    Exquisitely Written Shocker

    In The Judgment of Thomas we follow the life of a man described as a ¿lunatic who lives to battle sin and is incapable of love¿. Author Howard Stern brilliantly takes us on an epic journey from Thomas' tortured childhood in Italy through his years in battle and ultimately as a successful American attorney and Superior Court Judge where his secret psychotic vengeance plays out in the courtroom. When Ingrid Ponte must plead insanity in Thomas' court upon being charged with the murder of her cruel husband the strands of our judicial selection process and of Thomas' compulsion to avenge sin truly unravel. I was riveted.
