Publisher's Summary

When Terry Flynt gets the chance to defend a millionaire accused of murder, he knows the case could make his career - but the accused man is Flynt's greatest enemy. Can he defend a man who ruined his life?
Terry Flynt is a struggling legal clerk desperately trying to get promoted when he is given the biggest opportunity of his career: to help defend a millionaire accused of murdering a woman in his hotel suite. The only problem is that the accused man, Vernon James, is not only someone he knows but someone he loathes. This case could potentially make Terry's career, but how can he defend a former friend who betrayed him?
With the trial date looming, Terry delves deeper into Vernon's life and is forced to confront secrets from their shared past that could have devastating consequences for them both. For years, he has wanted to witness Vernon's downfall, but with so much at stake, how can Terry be sure he is guilty? And what choices must he make to ensure that justice is done?


What the Critics Say

"David Thorpe dazzles with his performance.... [T]he characters run the gamut from upper-crust Brits to African immigrants, and Thorpe can do it all.... This production is jet-propelled and marvelously entertaining." (AudioFile)

One of THE best audiobooks ever!

It's very long but really just the right length. I hope Audible gets more titles by this author IN ENGLISH! And David Thorpe is a brilliant narrator!

A great saga of a British legal case which centers on the personal evolution of the character telling the story. If you like Grisham and Connelly you should love this book. That it's set in London is an added bonus IMO. I wish I had saved it to listen to on an up coming road trip - which crossed my mind when I started listening and saw how good it was, but once I started I couldn't stop.

7 STARS!!!!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This will forever be one of the best books I've ever listened to. Superb reading (would hv thought there were many different readers his voice was so good), story had me on the edge of everywhere I was, dying to get to the end but not wanting it to end. I am an audible aholic...I listen to hundreds of books a year. This one is at the top. They should make a movie from it. Can not say enough great things about it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Verdict?

The WHOLE THING! TOO many to count and don't want to give away anything.

Which scene was your favorite?

The writer is very descriptive. Many of the scenes made me feel as if I was there. Sometimes I laughed out loud and many times ( in the court room) I was holding my breath.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Please take my advice. I'm just a lover of books and especially audio books. This one should make the best of 2016 list!!
