It was a day like any other at the West Palm Beach courthouse -- that is until the bomb went off and set the mayhem in motion. Bailiff Casey Portman arrived too late for her morning coffee, but early enough to see the beginning of a series of mishaps, mistakes, and murders that would tie the justice system in knots. At the center of it all is the trial of the decade in her judge's courtroom, a case nicknamed a "Dogicide" for the man charged with murder using his pit bull as a weapon.

Punishment: A Legal Thriller based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is a fine legal thriller, intended to be the first of a trilogy. It contains some inside perspective of court procedures given by the author, a Florida judge. There are the usual twists and turns, a few red herrings and a nice quick finish. Having spent a couple of decades in the legal system, I still enjoy a court room drama and crime investigation, and this is a good example by a new author. The chapters are short and the book a quick, easy read. Three and a half stars.This book was provided by the publisher in exchange for a review.
