    Maybe one should not read the book blurb here, because it contains spoilers that take away the element of surprise Or maybe that was the intended effect, after all I don t know In any case, even though there were many pages full of legal procedure references, the author was able to keep this story entertaining and captivating enough The character of Shelley Trotter was well defined and quite charismatic By that I mean, she was strong and independent and that is a trait I truly admire I app Maybe one should not read the book blurb here, because it contains spoilers that take away the element of surprise Or maybe that was the intended effect, after all I don t know In any case, even though there were many pages full of legal procedure references, the author was able to keep this story entertaining and captivating enough The character of Shelley Trotter was well defined and quite charismatic By that I mean, she was strong and independent and that is a trait I truly admire I applaud the author for portraying a realistic and genuine woman, who had not been defeated by her past, but had come out stronger What I particularly liked about Shelley was that she worked for the Law school and the Child Advocacy Project keeping children and teenagers in school, despite their small transgressions I also liked the nuance that was understood, that even though young people were forced or tempted to become delinquents, they were not all bad they had good in them and some could be helped to lead normal lives.The only thing that bothered me a bit is that the city where this story takes place, was never named I could only guess it was somewhere Northern because the winter was cold and milder temperatures only came back in May June I suppose this was intentional too, but I don t see the plus value

    If you like legal intrigue seasoned with a dash of politics, David Ellis is your guy I first discovered David Ellis when he co wrote a book with James Patterson that I particularly liked, and decided to check out his solo offerings Boy, am I glad that I did This is one of the most under rated authors of our times, and why he doesn t getnotice is anyone s guess.Jury of One centers around a female attorney named Shelley Trotter, who happens to be the daughter of the current Governor some If you like legal intrigue seasoned with a dash of politics, David Ellis is your guy I first discovered David Ellis when he co wrote a book with James Patterson that I particularly liked, and decided to check out his solo offerings Boy, am I glad that I did This is one of the most under rated authors of our times, and why he doesn t getnotice is anyone s guess.Jury of One centers around a female attorney named Shelley Trotter, who happens to be the daughter of the current Governor something that she does her best to disassociate with due to their past family history Shelley works at a law school clinic that defends indigent juveniles, typically for school related disciplinary matters, or very minor infractions One of her young clients from the law school, whom she has formed a friendship with, has been accused of murdering a police officer, and after seeking and failing to find a criminal defense attorney who will take Alex s case pro bono, Shelley reluctantly finds herself in the role of acting as Alex s counsel She has help along the way, from one of the most successful attorneys in the city, who offers her office space, legal advice, and muchThere are many twists and turns as Alex s reticence necessitates that Shelley dig and discover the facts a little at a time for herself, in the attempt to save his life, and come to terms with her own past.Great book, although I could argue that there are a lot of unrealistic coincidences, and that the teenagers in this book don t seem to speak like teens, or behave like kids from the other side of the tracks It was a thoroughly enjoyable read.I would caution those who would like to try out David Ellis books to read them in the order he wrote them, though, as characters do reappear in later books, even those outside of his 3 book so far series I read them out of order, and it wasn t that it didn t make sense, but I would rather have read them in order if I had it to do over again

    Stumbled upon this book at a shop selling second hand books Never heard of this author First time reading through the pages, I realized this is something I ve been looking for for a long Something that sweeps me off my feet The way the structure of the words and language being formed is like ice cream on a hot weather An amazing legal crime thriller plot that doesn t sound too flimsy and cliche I knew I had to get this book immediately Went buying twobooks by the same author I have Stumbled upon this book at a shop selling second hand books Never heard of this author First time reading through the pages, I realized this is something I ve been looking for for a long Something that sweeps me off my feet The way the structure of the words and language being formed is like ice cream on a hot weather An amazing legal crime thriller plot that doesn t sound too flimsy and cliche I knew I had to get this book immediately Went buying twobooks by the same author I have just finished reading jury of one As a slow reader, took me 6 days to complete it There s a lot of high court drama going on, with a little side story that will lead you to some answers towards the end of the book, as everything will be explained I feel that there were a lot of inconclusive repetition of the crime scene, playbacks that made it a little weary for the eye to follow Nevertheless, by the end of the whole thing, it still left me with Wow Brain stimulating and I m definitely going for round 2 with his other book company of liars

    Jury of One is a solid crime mystery, it begins with the murder of a police officer under cloudy circumstances, then it s turns out that perhaps it s a corrupt police officer involved in the sale of drugs and as the story unfolds it seems that everything that s gone before isn t what it initially appeared This is especially the case 60% of the way through the book when one of the main facts about a character that you are presented with and take for granted turns out to be not so factual and tha Jury of One is a solid crime mystery, it begins with the murder of a police officer under cloudy circumstances, then it s turns out that perhaps it s a corrupt police officer involved in the sale of drugs and as the story unfolds it seems that everything that s gone before isn t what it initially appeared This is especially the case 60% of the way through the book when one of the main facts about a character that you are presented with and take for granted turns out to be not so factual and that s only the beginning of the turns in the narrative that take place.All in all it s quite a riveting mystery of who is responsible for the actual shooting, and what the circumstances were that led to the shooting By the end of the story all the questions, leads false leads are resolved and wrapped up nicely
