Overview

The Judge (Paul Madriani Series #4) by Steve Martini

The explosive new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of Undue Influence


An unlikely defense...


Judge Armando "the Coconut" Acosta is arrested on charges of soliciting a prostitute in a sting operation for "johns," and few, including attorney Paul Madriani, who has a long history of enmity with the judge, are sympathetic. When the young female decoy who snared the judge is found brutally murdered, Acosta is the prime suspect.


Abandoned by his friends, Acosta asks Paul to save his career from impending doom. Paul is reluctant, but when Acosta's original defense lawyer is forced off the case by a zealous district attorney looking for revenge, Paul steps forward to defend the judge. With his client now charged with murder, Paul faces the most daunting, disturbing, and complex case of his career.


Packed with nonstop drama and a cast of richly drawn characters that have come to be Steve Martini's trademark, The Judge delivers a decisive thumbs-up verdict.

If you like legal thrillers/suspense, you'll love this one. This book kept my attention from the very beginning. I must say that I laughed out loud at the very end of the book (people on the subway must have thought that I was crazy)! It doesn't matter that was my honest reaction to the ending. I highly recommend it!

I seem to be the only one that does NOT like this book. I usually order books based on reviews so I quickly ordered The Judge, The Jury and The Arraignment. I can't even finish this book it is so boring. I will say that the concept is interesting yet I can't get into it. I will come back to it and give it ANOTHER chance but way down the line when I have nothing else to read.

This is Steve Martini's oldst book that I've read so far. I've read The Jury, The Attorney, The Arraignment, and now I've read the judge. I have to say I'm glad I read the arraignment first, because otherwise I would have been so disappointed after reading the judge. I loved this book, and I recommend all of his other books to everybody. If you're into the courtroom drama, definitely this and the jury. If you're into more action, mystery, read the arraignment.

A wonderful book that kept me reading each night for a week. The characters are well developed, and the story is much better than those Grisham has given us the past few years. Most of the story takes place in the court room, but the initial 50 or so pages set the story and characters up well. One of the best endings to a great novel that I have read in years. If you like Grisham, or court room drama, this is the book for you. It is so wonderful to discover a new author. I can hardly wait until I start another Martini book!

This is one of Martini's better books, unlike his newer stuff (which I do not recommend). If you've been a fan of Martini's star character, Paul Madriani, you will like this one. He now represents the judge in this novel who has been his worst enemy in court in the past. Very interesting book, and quite humorous. I highly recommend that you get it - but read his earlier books first so you can appreciate the change in the relationship between Madriani and the Judge (such as Undue Influence and/or Compelling Evidence).
