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.

I loved Savannah Law and did not know about the follow up book “The Indictments” I would have loved to read it before reading the “Two Witness Rule “. This book however can be read as a standalone and has continued the story line of assistant DA Scott Marino. Scott prosecutes defense lawyer Max Gordon, whom he had gone up against in “Savanah Law” Max is charged with paying off witnesses to commit perjury and influencing witnesses.
The Two-Witness Rule is once again set Savannah Georgia. I listened to the audio book version and once again enjoyed the narration and story line.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

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.
