Annie Laird is Juror 224. A sculptor with a career going nowhere. A single mother struggling to raise a son. A good citizen who has been summoned to what looks like a rountine tour of civic duty. But the trial she is called to serve on is no ordinary trial. It is a mob trial, whose outcome has been meticulously orchestrated by a man of insidious power and deadly precision. A man who lives by the teachings of Lao Tsu...whose magnetism is irresistible...whose mind is as brilliant as it is twisted. He is know to some as the Teacher, and he's set his sights on Annie Laird.

Pulled into the most chilling depths of the criminal underworld, Annie will be seduced by double-edged promises, stalked by the spector of terror, then, finally, driven to a shocking decision by the most basic motivation a woman can know. THE JUROR is a tour de force of crime and obsession, evil and innocence -- a story that taps into fears so primal they linger long after the last page has been read.

    " This book written in 1995 is about a group of corrupt individuals who try to influence a juror to vote for acquital in a murder trail. While the premise was interesting, the end was unsatisfying and the language was terrible. I wouldn't recommend it. "

    " Read this one twice (because I needed more books to read). Enjoyed it! Perhaps the heroin is a little meek for my taste, but things turn around. Love the Teacher. Great characters. "

    " A very enthralling read. It's not just a court case, it deals with the aftermath as well. Finished in a few hours even though there were over 400 pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle Neves | 9/13/2013

    " Why do brilliant, gorgeous psychopaths always decompensate @ the end? "

    " 3 1/2 stars ... again the man writes a compelling read, but too long. I can't decide exactly what should have been cut, but the last 1/3 of the book drug. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn Wells | 3/27/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maltaise | 2/19/2013

    " This is potentially the worst book I have ever read. It was so unrealistic and pathetic. "

    " This will be going on my favorites shelf. Loved the book, I'd like to read more of his books. There was a movie made from this book already. Really kept you interested, lot of twists in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 lunaticprophet | 12/15/2012

    " ***+ Very good story, with an excellent villain. Starts a bit slow but quickly delves into an excellent thriller. Could barely put it down during the last hundred pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 10/3/2012

    " Not so great. I wanted to quit reading this book but I forced myself to persist. The storyline isn't bad (the mafia threatening a woman's son with death unless the jury that she is sitting on returns a 'not guilty' verdict) but I wasn't a fan of the sloppy writing style. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy Long | 5/20/2011

    " If you love a suspense novel this book is it. There are so many twists and turns and it really keeps you reading to try and figure out what is going to happen. If you like books dealing with the Mafia this is a good one. "
