I like a slowly developing mystery but this one is so slow that I got bored and did not care who did what to whom. It starts with Wilhelmima's (Willa) sister Carly appearing and saying that she knows the identity of a dead man and then disappears, this happens throughout the book. For some reason Willa, who is a judge, thinks that her sister's pronouncement incriminates her and would be harmful to her career. This is set against the backdrop of a number of court cases involving silicone implants which at least is topical. It is a fairly complex tale unfortunately the style of writing, short punchy sentences, does not suit this type of descriptive writing and perhaps because of this I could not feel any involvement with any of the characters. I believe this is part of a series, I will not read the rest.

The author is a high priced lawyer so their is depth to the story. The prose is well crafted and the plot lively.

I have packed this in. Usually I will persevere once I've reached 30+% but with this I gave in at 44% through....I just got totally bored with it, I'm afraid. Not a one of the characters are very likeable and all tended to keep secrets from each other and skirt around the truth.
Willa, the judge, seems to do just as she pleases which I would like to think isn't very likely in cutting court short early as it suited her, not returning phonecalls and not attending meetings. I'd like to think in her position she'd behave a lot better.
Then most peculiarly at 20% in there were suddenly mistakes !!
A firm of lawyers was Able, Barnes & Worthington and she mentioned Bennett was dead which was confusing enough but on the next page they'd morphed into Able, Bennett & Worthington. Then the annoying line "was the entire firm was populated"......which again makes no sense. Then instead of indicating the word indicting was used and born instead of borne. All this was very tiresome and coupled with the characters it was enough for me.

The story itself made me want to keep reading to see "whodunnit" but the style of writing was irritating. The legal speak was also very long winded and a little boring in places. I'm not sure whether I will try another one of her books

This is book #1 in the Hunt for Justice series, and it was enjoyable. I read it as part of the Licensed to Thrill 3 trilogy. Judge Wilhelmina “Willa” Carson lives a fabulous life on her own island in Florida, with her loving husband restaurateur George Carson. Due Justice opens with Willa’s sister Carly Austin, (they grew up together after Willa’s mom died when Willa was 16, and her step-father took off and left her with the Austin family), reveals that she may know the identity of the body that was just fished out of the water in Tampa Bay. As Willa is a local judge, and Carly is a lawyer, they are ethically obligated to report what they know to the local authorities, but they don’t. Carly’s way of handling things is to take off and hide. Willa is very curious and uses this and her power as a judge to investigate Carly’s story. The problem with this is Carly is not totally open and honest with Willa. She definitely has some secrets in her life that Willa isn’t aware of.

Willa’s social circle, and work associates all seem to be tied in to the conspiracy Carly has revealed. Carly is a lawyer for a breast implant manufacturer who is facing many lawsuits. The founders of this company are three doctors with many problems of their own, including infidelity, theft, drugs and blackmail. As Willa investigates the murder, she uncovers much drama and many secrets surrounding the victim.

The characters are believable, but not the type of people I care to associate with. They are arrogant, rich, selfish and not afraid to bend the rules, and a lot of bed hopping. There are a few twists and turns in the book, but I wasn’t on the edge of my seat to see what would come next. Murder, blackmail and suicide give Diane Capri plenty to write about.

Judge Willa Carson is an intelligent, no-nonsense woman married to George, her supportive, caring husband. Her family background is quite complicated as her mother died when she was relatively young and she was brought up by her mother's friend who had three children of her own. She regards the youngest, Carly, as her sister and has spent most of her adult life getting her out of scrapes. This time, however, the problem is much larger and involves murder and the inevitable intrigue that follows.

I loved the spare, witty writing. Not one word is wasted and the characters in their 'old money' society setting simply leap off the page. The legal side is dealt with expertly, giving a brief but clear view of the working life of a High Court judge. I was enthralled with Willa and thoroughly enjoyed the skilful writing in this book. I would have given it the full 5 stars but for the fact that, as the story progressed, it became clear that there would be no surprises. Once matters began to come to a head, wrapping up the storyline became rather routine and the supporting characters had no further role to play. Poor proof-reading also became an issue especially as at one point, a company name changed completely. Whilst for the most part, they were relatively minor typos, it did tend to detract from what was, for the most part, quality writing. Despite these minor points, this is quality thriller writing and I would definitely read more by this author.
