Randy Singer always delivers a great legal thriller. I've exhausted his shelf at my library and have enjoyed them all. The Justice Game certainly didn't disapoint. I thought it was a tightly plotted and intricate story, with heartfelt charcters that I cared about. It's full of things i didn't expect, at all! Randy Singer kept me reading and kept pulling me into the story.This is a book you will not want to miss. You may or may not agree with the final result, but it will raise some questions and hopefully get some discussions going.Even though I did like the book I didn't quite connect to the story and characters as much as I have in his previous works. Given that, it was great, and one that a lot of readers have strong opinions about the subject. For other people though, it's been their favorite Singer book yet. It's not (in my opinion) the best Randy Singer book i've read, but it is worth reading.
This book was probably one of the most interesting law suspense novels I've ever read. It's a book that really makes you think about why you believe in certain things and how you came to have that viewpoint. In our country, the debate about gun control is highly controversial and is always a major topic during political elections. When one hears about a shooting, it's always easy to want to place the blame on someone. The immediate need is to bring someone and have justice done to make they pay for what has happened. In this case the widower of the murdered newscaster wants to bring down the gun manufacturer. The two young lawyers in this book have to face the hard questions being thrown at them about who is really at fault and who should take the ultimate blame. I really found the mock jury trials and selections very interesting. It makes one think about how controlled our judicial system really is and what goes on behind closed doors. It's also very scary to think about how lawyers can be manipulated by outside forces which can throw off an entire case. I felt that the ending seemed a bit rushed. I just felt that there was a lot of buildup in the entire book and the finale seemed a tad flat. I know however that readers chose this ending after watching video clips, so I'm not sure what to make out of that. However, my only true qualm was that Lisa was not the only victim of the fatal shooting, yet I didn't seem to recall any other family members of the other victims as part of this trial. This just struck me as very odd that no one else seemed to care except for her husband. This was my first book by Randy Singer that I've read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This book is on par with other law thrillers such as those by John Grisham . In fact, this book reminded me of "Runaway Jury" with it's premise, just minus the strong language. I'm looking forward to going back and reading the rest of Singer's books and will be on the lookout for his new ones.
Loved, loved, loved, loved this book! My husband beat me to the bookshelf to read it, but once I got it, I couldn't put it down. Singer is a master at drawing characters I care about and putting them into legal situations that pull me in. He's every bit as good as John Grisham if not better! And the twists -- even when I anticipate one, he throws in five more that I don't fully expect. I loved this book! If you like a page-turning legal thriller, buy this book today!
