Lawyer Paul Madriani is called on to defend a brilliant research physician - who just may be a killer - in the most daunting capital case of Madriani's career.

Paul Madriani has ample reason to suspect he's representing a guilty man. Dr. David Crone, a respected medical researcher and principal in mapping the human genome, is charged with the murder of a young colleague: Kalista Jordan, an African-American research physician whose dismembered body was found in a nearby bay.

Madriani's defense is hindered by the secrecy surrounding Crone's research - which has involved his controversial use of genetic racial profiling. The murdered woman had filed charges of sexual harassment against Crone. Paul is left to piece together a defense while Crone and his colleagues conceal parts of the puzzle.

When a key witness for the prosecution ends up dead, Crone's acquittal is all but assured. Paul's nagging doubts concerning his client are answered with a stunning revelation and a shattering climax. Download and start listening now!

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Clifford | 1/26/2014

    " I don't think I'll read another Steve Martini novel. For one thing, the author's conservative politics shine through in some of the comments made by the protagonist, attorney Paul Madriani. For another, there are plot holes that you could drive a hummer through. And for yet another, much of what is there seems decidedly implausible, especially certain elements of the ending. And all of that is without mentioning the writing, which is full of cliche. So, no more, please. "

    " Enjoyable but not great. "

    " This is the 4th book in this series I have read involving the character Paul Madriani and it was my least favorite. The suspense and court room drama was lacking "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joanne | 12/29/2013

    " Another tedious book, until suddenly near the end it picks up with a new twist, then comes the surprise ending of someone you never expect commiting the crime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 12/28/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 11/27/2013

    " Quite a good thriller but felt like he was trying to be another John Grisham and didn't quite make it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 11/21/2013

    " This is getting really good. I've got to stop reading well into the morning, rather than sleeping. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tulsi | 11/9/2013

    " keep saying to myself that this is a legal thriller and not a crime one :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lawrence | 11/4/2013

    " Can't really say why, but for courtroom thrillers, I find I like Martini better than Grisham. Page turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 D R | 10/27/2013

    " My level of expectation was high. Maybe reason why I was disappointed. But that doesn't discourage me from chasing Steve Martini's other titles, because I know he is a good story teller. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissa | 9/14/2013

    " Blew through this book fast - it an ok story, but for me it had too much back and forth in the court room "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie Stoll | 12/27/2012

    " I enjoyed this legal thriller very much. Many twists and turns to keep a reader guessing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsty (Blatant Biblioholic) | 7/31/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheldon Lehman | 10/11/2011

    " This one is a little different. Almost all of the book is about the trial. It's a good tale, but it is mis-named. It's not really about a jury at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Myken | 6/12/2011

    " It was okay. First book I've read by this author--don't know that I have any interest in reading anything else by him, unless it comes highly recommended. "

    " Figured out the killer about a third through. Just a cheap paperback I picked up but not worth the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pa | 11/23/2010

    " A better than average murder mystery/courtroom drama tale. Probably closer to a 3.5, but worth reading. This is one of several S. Martini books involving the lawyer Paul Madriani and his lawyer sidekick, Harry. Reasonably good character and plot development. "

    " Fun courtroom drama. I connected with the characters and really wanted to know what th 'trade secret' was...but what did the story have to do with a jury? Anyone? Anyone? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 2/24/2010

    " A courtroom drama with believable characters. Not a lot of tension but I enjoyed it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 8/3/2009

    " The Jury is a very poor title as "the Jury" has no relevance in this courtroom drama. "
