Exciting Legal Thriller

Any additional comments?

When Judge Regan St. Clair receives a letter from Jamie Gibbons asking for help exonerating her husband Andy, she sees the flimsy evidence that convicted him and agrees to look into his case. With the help of private investigator Jake Westley, they soon realize that someone doesn't want them to find the truth.

Judgment Call is a fast-paced legal thriller with a lot of action and excitement. Murder, abduction, bombs, car chases and plenty of near misses kept me riveted. I also enjoyed the romantic element of the story. With the conspiracy to keep the truth hidden, it was difficult to discern the good guys from the bad, especially when some of the characters were a little of both. I like when not all of the characters are so cut and dry and it added another layer of intrigue. This was a long book but the narrator did a great job of moving the story along. I really enjoyed Judgment Call: The Exonerated, Volume 1 and can't wait to see what happens next. I would recommend this.

The plot was very busy and a little convoluted. Lot of things happening. The resolution didn't really offer as much satisfaction as I had hoped. It was very confusing and muddied. Narration was ok. Not the best book but definitely not the worst.

A game of chess

Any additional comments?

An excellent narration by Rhett Samuel Price keeps this story vibrant and intriguing. and even gave it a feeling of possibility. Ten years after the conviction and imprisonment of Andy Gibbons for a murder he claimed not to have e committed, his wife persuades Judge Regan St.Claire to re-investigate the case. There seemed to be several irregularities but after several months nothing decisive had been discovered. Then, with a new investigator, she starts to make progress - and attract opposition, beatings and threats to her life which simply make her more determined to discover the real killer, who Framed him, and get Andy released.

There are numerous and good characters, excellently portrayed by the narrator who gives each a clear and distinct voice making this more of a play than a simple reading: the communications effect was particularly impressive. The excitement is tense, the conversation realistic and the story mysterious. Sadly, the conclusion seemed very unlikely and far fetched, but it was an interesting idea, if horrifying.

This is definitely a book to hear rather than read, carried, as previously mentioned, so well by Mr.Price. I was fortunate in having been gifted a complementary copy of Judgement Call by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. I was completely involved within it, carried along by the excellence of the narration and thrilling intrigue of the story even after my suspence of disbelief had started to fall apart. Would I recommend it? I'm not sure, but I will certainly be looking out for anything else narrated by Rhett Samuel Price.
