We expect our judges to be honest and wise. We trust them to ensure fair trials, to protect the rights of all litigants, to punish those who do wrong, and to oversee the orderly and efficient flow of justice. But what happens when a judge bends the law or takes a bribe? Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for The Florida Board On Judicial Conduct. She is a lawyer, not a cop, and it is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct. After nine years with the Board, she knows that most problems are caused by incompetence, not corruption. But a corruption case crosses her desk eventually. A lawyer disbarred previously is back in business with a new identity. He now goes by the name Greg Myers, and he claims to know of a Florida judge who has stolen more money than all other crooked judges combined. And not just crooked judges in Florida. All judges, from all states, and throughout United States history. What is the source of the ill-gotten gains? It seems the judge was secretly involved with the construction of a large casino on Native American land. The Coast Mafia financed the casino and is now helping itself to a sizable skim of each month's cash. The judge is getting a cut and looking the other way. It is a sweet deal: Everyone is making money. But now, Greg wants to put a stop to it. His only client is a person who knows the truth and wants to blow the whistle and collect millions under Florida law. Greg files a complaint with The Board On Judicial Conduct, and the case is assigned to Lacy Stoltz, who suspects immediately that this one could be dangerous. Dangerous is one thing. Deadly is something else.

I have been reading books by Mr. Grisham for 30 years. My favorite is still "A Time to Kill". The history of this "first novel" is as follows: A Time to Kill is a 1989 legal thriller by John Grisham. It was Grisham's first novel. The novel was rejected by many publishers before Wynwood Press eventually gave it a modest 5,000-copy printing. When Doubleday published The Firm, Wynwood released a trade paperback of A Time to Kill, which became a bestseller. "A Time To Kill" was the most powerful book that Grisham ever wrote in my opinion. Second place goes to: "A Painted House". I will never say that Mr. Grisham is not a talented writer, but he took the most / first risks with A Time... Many that followed have been more formulaic to me. This book was just OK. Kristi & Abby Tabby

Good story but the last CD skipped through most of it so I couldn't hear the final ending.

As usual an engrossing audio book. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Recommend listening for John Gresham fans. Book is engaging and although fiction gives an insight into judicial corruption.
