Publisher's Summary

Two years ago, Darren Street made a name for himself as the man who rooted out corruption in the district attorney's office. Now the hotheaded young lawyer is in the public eye yet again - this time, accused of murder.
Jalen Jordan retained Street for what seemed to be a minor traffic violation, but when evidence turned up linking Jordan to the death of two boys, Street wanted out of the case. To ensure his lawyer's cooperation and silence, Jordan threatened to make Street's son the next victim. Shortly after, Jordan's own body turned up with a bullet hole in his chest.
Now Street is on trial for his life, and the enemy he made in the DA's office is clearly out for blood. It's one lawyer out to frame another. Can a desperate father escape punishment for a crime he didn't commit?

I Tried

What disappointed you about Justice Redeemed?

After reading "An Innocent Client", I started skimming the titles of Scott Pratt's other novels and came across this one. The premise was interesting and I had enjoyed "Client, so it was expecting another good read.

Yeah, I think I made it through the first chapter but that was hard. I just kept going 'that's not how privilege works' and considering it's the entire basis for how the protagonist finds himself in this situation, it was a hard detail to overlook. If your client threatens someone, that threat is not privileged. If your client is no longer your client because you quit the case, anything he tells you after that relationship is over is not privileged. The entire thing could have been handled with a call to the cops or FBI.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Currently listening to Adam Mitzner's newest, "The Girl from Home".

Which character – as performed by Nick Podehl – was your favorite?

The protagonist. Unfortunately, I've forgotten his name. I like Nick, though. He's narrated a few other books I've listened to.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The writing is good. I liked the protagonist well enough. I just couldn't get past the privilege issue. It just didn't make sense.

Power In The Hands of Dishonest Prosecutors

Power in the wrong hands can prove deadly! Street is a good guy that anyone and everyone will want to root for. As Jean of Santa Cruz, CA noted about the author, "Pratt does not hide the cynicism he has for the system, and how easy it is to get lost when facing the power of the government."

This legal thriller is primarily about the abuse of power in our judicial system. The protagonist is Darren Street, a criminal defense attorney who years ago had ousted an abusive district attorney from office. Now, years later, the ousted district attorney devise a plan to get even with Street.

Darren Street is plunged head-long into the criminal justice system where he has to contend with false accusation, humiliation, indignity, government sponsored isolation and torture, beatings and stab wounds until the wheels of the justice system nearly grinds him to dust. This legal thriller literally grabs you by the ears from first words and never let go. It is fast paced with excellent character development and twists and turns that propels the story forward and keep you on the edge of your seat and listening.

The narrator is really good! In the beginning I thought "oh boy!, I'm not going to like this narrator but, once again, I was wrong. Nick Podehl is really good.
