Format: Paperback
I haven't enjoyed a book this much in ages. And it's NOT just a technical thriller, whatever some people may say. It's got a really deep human element. The hero is a three-dimensional human being tormented by guilt and self-doubt. but at the same time, he's clever and determined.
What I liked was the way the author gradually built up the romance between the very unconventional hero and the girl on the jury that he initially intends to kill. Kessler handles the transition with masterful skill, really getting inside both characters.
And the showdown with the villain is a psychological tour-de-force!

Format: Paperback
I like the legal thrillers of John Grisham and the Techno-thillers of Tom Clancy, but David Kessler seems to have found a magical way of combining the two genres.
This is a brilliant thriller telling a story of injustice, arrogance, revenge and guilt. The story describes the efforts of a man to exact revenge from the jurors who convicted his brother of rape and murder. This is a somewhat savage motive, but the jurors are not quite as innocent as one might think, and the vengeance-driven hero is not quite as heartless as he might at first appear.
But as he starts killing off the jurors, he also starts to confront the question of who did commit the crime that his brother was accused - and this starts him on a second quest.
I don't want to give away the ending, but all I will say is that it was quite a surprise - not to mention that proverbial "roller-coast ride" in getting there. It's a cliche I know, but when you read it you'll see what I mean.

I don't usually rave over thrillers. (I did enjoy all four Dan Brown books - but so did practically everyone!) But this book really took my breath away. I won;t try to summarize it, but I did find it full of clever twists and turns. Every time I tried to guess what was going to happen next, the author threw a curve ball that caught me by surprise.
I can't wait to read some of his other books - I just hope they liveup to this one.

Format: Paperback
The most pretentious, patronising amateurish crime book published for years. Pages and pages of incomprehensible computer-nerd jargon and a plot so full of holes that it would make a sieve depressed.I only finished it out of fascination to see if it could get any worse. It did.
