Definitely not his best work or close to it. Maybe write less books and do a better job

One reviewer suggessed he write less. I don't think he writes at all! Authors that are trying to make a name just let him slap his name on the cover. He must be very desperate for money to lower himself to do commercials to beg for book sales. He's not getting any more money from me.

For me, too much of the story was unbelievable, especially the naivete of the 'junkyard' attorney

What a thrill this book was! It's actually two stories in one, and through both stories we learn about young Ruby, fresh into the legal world. She is one sharp cookie, but at times, I certainly wondered about her common sense. This could easily be a great series. Author Nancy Allen shines here because I do not see much of the usual, scary work of James Patterson. Well-done!

Lawyer & Author Nancy Allen clearly contributed to this incredible story--I hope Allen receives at least half of the royalties, or more!

This is one of my favorite James Patterson novels by co-author Nancy Allen. And there are many great novels by James Patterson. Allen made the story fun, fast paced and full of action in this Mississippi legal thriller, featuring a start up young attorney thrown into a mix of fancy and rag tag characters. This was a total pleasure to enjoy. I just looked up Nancy Allen who is also the author of the Ozarks Mystery Series and can hardly wait for another Allen adventure. Looks like in that series the protagonist is a female PROSECUTOR? Wow. Meanwhile, look forward to a Juror #3 sequel because I am not complete with my longing for Ruby!

Easy read, very enjoyable book. Two quick fast paced stories in one book. I enjoyed it. I had gotten away from reading the James Patterson books, but this reminded of why I used to read them. I think people will enjoy it.

3.5 stars, actually. Picture this: It's the deep south, where conventional wisdom dictates that whites and blacks don't hang around in the same social circles. Beautiful white woman and a hunky black ex-jock defy said conventional wisdom (several times, most recently in a beach cabana). White woman gets brutally murdered. Black man gets charged with said murder. Snarky judge assigns defense to newbie white female attorney. Client insists he's innocent and refuses to take a plea. Case heads to trial with odds (including the jurors) stacked against a win. Anyone hear a familiar twang? Yup, me too. The only surprise is that it's not by the author I'd have expected. Nonetheless, the plot makes this a better-than-just-tolerable read; the only other surprises, I guess, come as said newbie white female attorney, Ruby Bozarth, learns who she can trust. Otherwise, the story follows her efforts to be taken seriously by the judge, prosecuting attorney, jurors and even her client (she's already given up on her snooty rich racist ex-fiance, Lee Greene). Problems begin at the voir dire, when the prosecutor runs roughshod over Ruby's juror choices; in particular, she's suspicious about the person seated as Juror #3 (wow, that would make a great book title)! But from out of the blue comes her ex-fiance's Aunt Suzanne - an established, blustery local attorney strongly reminiscent of TV's fiesty, oversized but oddly lovable Harry Enfield, played by Kathy Bates. Then, out of the blue blood appears said ex-fiance - wearing an orange jumpsuit. It seems he's been accused of murdering a beautiful young woman. Despite his disdain over Ruby's boots-on-the-ground lower-class social background, her inexperience and his family's misgivings, he insists that as his attorney, only she will do. Right off the bat, Ruby gets Greene's trial moved from Vicksburg, Mississippi, to her tiny town of Rosedale to avoid media contamination of the jurors - a venue that seems to assure that this case somehow will intersect with that of the cabana-killer. It does, at least marginally, and after investigations make the truth hard to swallow and threaten her very life, Ruby - and the second-time-around jury - get to the truth. Conclusion: An ending that begs for more details, but overall not half bad; so if you enjoy books with a legal bent, don't hesitate to give it a go.
