Andie DeGrasse, an aspiring actress and single mom, is not your typical juror. Hoping to get dismissed from the pool, she tells the judge that most of her legal knowledge comes from a bit part curling around a stripper’s pole in The Sopranos. But she still ends up as juror #11 in a landmark trial against a notorious mob boss.

The case quickly becomes the new Trial of the Century. Mafia don Dominic Cavello, known as the Electrician, is linked to hundreds of gruesome, unspeakable crimes. Senior FBI agent Nick Pellisante has been tracking him for years. He knows Cavello’s power reaches far beyond the courtroom, but the FBI’s evidence against the ruthless killer is iron-clad. Conviction is a sure thing.

As the jury is about to reach a verdict, the Electrician makes a devastating move that no one could have predicted. With the entire nation reeling, Andie’s world is shattered. The hunt for the Electrician becomes personal, and she and Pellisante come together in an unbreakable bond: they will exact justice at any cost.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Bestsellers Patterson and Gross once again deliver what their fans expect.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Delivers plenty of twists and turns…A compelling hero and a truly evil villain distinguish this exciting read.”

    Booklist

  • “Perfecting the mobster’s attitude, as well as that of the FBI agent tracking him, could be difficult for some, but innuendo, accent, and timing are Joe Mantegna’s trademarks in narrating, and he does a superb job here. Nick Pellisante comes alive as the emotionally burdened agent, as does Andie DeGrasse, the not-so-willing juror, as their lives become entangled while the Mafia don laughs in the face of the law. Using wise-guy accents for the mobsters and a sincere tone for the agent, Mantegna weaves this story flawlessly, bringing the listener into a gritty world in which the villains get the upper hand, but only for a short while.”

    AudioFile

  • “Replete with intrigue, irony, colorful characters, and a spot of romance, [Judge & Jury] is exceptionally suspenseful and engaging. I have long been a fan of Patterson’s ability as a storyteller but until now have not seen him develop a plot so craftily.”

Listener Opinions

    " Quick read, same old James Patterson "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 2/12/2014

    " Mafia don Cavello is used to getting his way in everything, and when he goes on trial for murder, he expects to get what he wants by terrorizing the jury. FBI agent Nick Pellisante has spent years trying to put him away, and just when he thinks he has finally cornered him, things take a drastic turn. The story is great, and this is a good read, but there is some language. "

    " Who doesn't like James Patterson? Duh. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gail | 1/21/2014

    " Hmmm - easy to read, story will keep you occupied, but once read, it will just blend in to all the others. My copy bills itself as his 'Latest Legal Thriller'. Bit light on the legal I thought. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dignan107 | 1/19/2014

    " The worst James Patterson book I have read. Quite predictable with an unrealistic plot. Started well but did end very predictabley. Usual structure of quick chapters that flow well, a real shame the story kind of tailed off as the first half of the book was very enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 1/19/2014

    " typical Patterson - a lot of unexpected twists and turns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 1/9/2014

    " A quick read, although not one of Patterson's (Gross') best. There was no mystery and the characters weren't all that well thought-out. If it wasn't such a quick read, I probably would have put it down before finishing it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 1/4/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kyle | 12/12/2013

    " Upon leaving China, I wanted an easy, mindless read for the plane. This fit the bill perfectly. It was my first, and will be my only, Patterson read. But if you've been away for a while and want to slip back into the mindset of America, you can do worse. "

    " Another great one! THis time we are not in the Hamptons, which is a nice break from a lot of Patterson books (not including the Cross series). This one takes you all over the world and back. Very terrifying and suspenseful, and sad at times too. The ending was great as well. "
