Suitable to review a book about a jury when the Paul Manafort jury starts deliberating today. Not knowing all the facts the jury hears, but only hearing what the media highlights, it's hard to know what to think, but it appears Paul may be leaving home for a bit.
That said, I read a good novel last week in the Caribbean. It was a great beach read.
We, the Jury is one of those books that just captures your interest from the first page and four hours later, you look up and have forgotten to give your kids dinner. Set in a California courtroom, the book highlights the jury of a murder/spousal abuse:self defense case. The personalities of the jurors and their reaction to each other and the facts of the case make this a page turner. Well written, the characters are well developed and diverse, and most are unlikable. The politics of a small county in California enter into the story, as does bias. There are twists and turns, much in the style of Grisham. It's a really good read and will be enjoyable to those readers who like courtroom thrillers and fiction. I rate this four stars and would recommend you try it. It was a great beach read for me in the Caribbean on vacation. Thanks to the publisher and #NetGalley for an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.
