Publisher's Summary

Attorney Dani Rollins is bullish in the courtroom - pushing judges and prosecutors to their limits in defense of the innocent. So when she meets Teddy Thorne, a mentally challenged teen accused of selling drugs, Dani knows she’s got this in the bag. She can easily settle the case with a couple of court appearances. But when prosecutors move for an adult felony conviction, Dani suspects Teddy’s being used as a pawn in a sinister game.
As the case moves forward, Dani is certain the judge and district attorney’s office have motivations beyond the crime - a fair trial isn’t in the cards. And when she takes on guardianship of Teddy, the case becomes personal as she fights her own demons and the government. Dani will stop at nothing to protect this innocent boy - there’s no other option. Because if she loses, both she and Teddy could lose far more than just the case....

Excellent book based on the sad realities ...

OMG! This book is so good! My heart went out to this intellectually impaired (new PC term for retarded) child. There are many points of interest for me in this book and I will try not to bore anyone.
To start with the legal aspects of the story are so realistic. The protagonist Dani Rollins is the attorney, I would love to know. Her blue language in court is what I'm sure every practicing attorney truly thinks. The racial inequalities presented in this book in the justice system are horrendous. The other thing is the idea that the courts could put a juvenile on trial as an adult at their own discretion is absurd . Because of the author's notes I do believe this. I guess this book just demonstrates a portion of our legal system that is broken.
Finally, please forgive me for my soapbox rant. The "help" provided to families of disabled children/adults is pretty much nonexistent. I have 30 year old physically disabled twin daughters and I am their sole caregiver. Unless I want to PUT them in a group home that is totally inappropriate (they combine physically & intellectually disabled people) then they have to stay with me. The emotional and financial impact mentioned in this book is VERY underrated. Please also note that I did not say burden:)
Teri Schnaubelt does an excellent job narrating.

Methos' best legsl thriller since The Neon Lawyer

Utah attorney Victor Methos writes a lot of legal and police procedural thrillers many of which are not very good. Only 10 are available in audio. The Gambler's Jury stands with The Neon Lawyer as his best works. The Invisible Client is almost as good. Methos does a great job developing the characters including protagonist attorney Dani Rolling, her teenage son, her ex-husband, the defendant in this drug case, her investigator, and even the judge. There is a nice plot twist near the end of the novel which identifies the unlikely actual guilty party. If Methos wants to start a Dani Rollins series, A Gambler's Jury is a great start. Narrator Teri Schnaubeltis as the voice of Dani Rollins is simply the perfect narrator for this book.

Those listeners who object to crude/obscene/vulgar language are certain to be offended by A Gambler's Jury and most other Victor Methos novels, so they should skip this novel and this author. I recommend A Gambler's Jury to other listeners.
