Publisher's Summary

We, the Jury is the dramatic story of the seven jurors who convicted Scott Peterson of murdering his wife, Laci, and their unborn son, Conner, despite a series of internal battles that brought the first major murder trial of the 21st century to the brink of a mistrial. The Peterson jurors argued and disagreed but eventually bonded to seal the fate of the icy killer who dumped his victims into the bullet-gray waters of San Francisco Bay. The seven jurors of We, the Jury were seven average Americans who never imagined the horrors they would face or the phantoms that would haunt them after they convicted the enigmatic murderer and recommended that he be put to death.This is the story of how the American jury system worked after being battered by critics for the way it functioned in the trials of O.J. Simpson and Michael Jackson. Unlike the jurors in those trials, who second guessed themselves, the Peterson jurors do not question their decisions. It wasn't one thing that condemned Scott Peterson; it was everything.

Same Ol' Same Ol'

Anyone who followed the trial on Court TV or in the media, hoping for some earth shattering information won't find it here.

The book jumps all over the place and does not follow the trial the way it happened. It is hard to follow even if you are well versed in the case. One minute they are talking about the verdict being read and then in the same chapter about jury selection.

Listeners will not learn anything new about Peterson or the jury members that hasn't been previously reported in the media. Don't waste your money on this one.

This book could have been a fascinating look into the process of jury deliberation. However, it was a disjointed mash of "everyone having their say". The narrator was quite poor in her pronunciation of common english words which was actually a welcome distraction from her droning monotone. I counted more that a dozen errors. The premise of the book was quite good, and if you can get past the repetition of facts and quotes maybe you will find it interesting.
