    Meh It was ok Wasn t the best plot but it did have it s twists and turns, and kept the pace action going to the end, but it felt like it was going nowhere, and the characters were a little wooden, I never really cared for them that much 3 stars, maybe 2 and a half.

    Two courthouse employees plot to conceal the fact that a judge has died At first they are simply trying to hold onto their jobs, relying on a quirky custom that dictates they will serve out the remainder of the calendar year The task begins with a sardonic jollity, but slowly grows darker until it becomes pitch noir This novel s greatest strength lies in its atmospherics, conjured with vivid descriptions of the iconic New York County courthouse...
