Some crimes are just different. Murder is the most serious crime committed on an individual, but perjury is the most dangerous to the criminal justice system. While one witness is legally sufficient to prove murder, for perjury, the two-witness rule applies. But the young prosecutor is challenged by more than this unique rule. He must prosecute a cunning lawyer who is defended by another just as crafty. He wants this dishonest attorney disbarred and put away for 10 years. With the stakes so high, Marino faces threats to both his integrity and his life as he prepares for the biggest trial of his young career.
This is the third novel by William Eleazer. All of his novels - Savannah Law, The Indictments, and now, The Two-Witness Rule - share the same locale: beautiful and quaint Savannah, Georgia.

Would you try another book from William Eleazer and/or Bob Johnson?
I would! I enjoyed the plot. I liked the characters.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Not really. I felt part of the plot moved too fast, while other aspects were a bit slow. It didn't keep me guessing, but I did the story line
What aspect of Bob Johnson’s performance would you have changed?
I had to get use to Mr. Johnson's cadence. At first, I had difficulty telling the difference between him reading the plot versus when a character was talking. Once I figured out how he spoke, it was all good & I had no issues.
Do you think The Two-Witness Rule needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I do. There were some unanswered questions. I believe this book is in a series. I did not listen to the other books first. I am going to. I will also be looking for any future books with these characters.
Any additional comments?
Overall, it was good. Not the best I've listened to, but good. I would recommend it. It was really a nice & easy book.
I was provided this auto book at no charge by the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audioboom.com.

William Eleazer is a new author for me as is the narrator, Bob Johnson. The story takes place in Savannah, Georgia. Our protagonist is Assistant District Attorney Scott Marino. He is trying a well-known defense attorney for witness tampering. They want Marino off the case. They frame him for a crime so the DA will remove him.
The book is well written. The story grabbed my attention immediately. The next thing I knew it is one a.m. I could hardly put the book down. The characters are interesting and well developed. Enjoyed the courtroom action. I understand this is Eleazer’s third book. I will go now go back and read his other two books.
The book is seven hours long. Bob Johnson does a good job narrating the book. Johnson is a voice artist and audiobook narrator.

Oh man, you are in for a trip.
Continuing the career of Scott Marino, now an Assistant District Attorney in Savannah and about to embark on the prosecution of his old nemesis, professor and still practising reference attorney, Max Gordon. Gordon stood charged with committing perjury and bribery of witnesses in an earlier case in which Scott was involved. The dislike of the other ran both ways: Scott blamed Gordon for the death of an innocent girl shot whilst having a celebratory meal with her parents, whilst Gordon will stop at nothing to get Scott removed from his case.
This is a legal thriller, with the full excitement of the preparation and execution of the trial. But, like the earlier books by William Released, explores the people surrounding it, and their day to day lives, including frequent visits to the Library Bar and Grill, and the flurry of quick jokes constantly offered up by Uri, the bartender. It is this tapestry of interaction which makes these books so special.
Once again, Bob Johnson reads at a gentle pace, fitting his narration to the pace of the story. He is calm, almost soothing, as he negotiates the problems and crises which occur and he helps bring each of the characters to life with individual voicings.
This is a completely stand alone story but is enhanced if the predecessors, Savannah Law and the Indictments, have been read as fuller acquaintance with the characters does provide a deeper understanding of their personal motivations. My deep thanks to the rights holder who, at my request, gifted me a complimentary copy of the Two Witness Rule, via Audiobook Boom. I very much enjoy these books, and the outsider's peek into the small community in which they are set. Definitely recommended for all who enjoy legal thrillers.
