JUDGMENT – Joseph Finder
Have you read anything by Finder? I’m taking recommendations!
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
I was reminded why I love the political and legal thrillers after finishing this one up. JUDGMENT by Joseph Finder was a page turner for me and I’ll always love when the legal system or court rooms get involved. What happens when one night changes the rest of your life?
Juliana is a Superior Court Judge and while at conference she gives in to temptation and cheats on her husband. It’s just one night, right? No one will ever know her lapse in judgment. Little does she know, this will come back to haunt her and put her career and loved ones in jeopardy. As she presides over a sexual harassment case, people are putting the pressure on her to rule in a specific way, and they will stop at nothing to ensure it.
This is more of a complex thriller – definitely one that has up completely absorbed and on your toes. I love the more complex and involved storylines because it keeps my attention the entire time. The characters were relatable and well-developed, I loved the writing style, and I still can’t believe this is my first time picking up a book by Finder.
If you’re looking for a fast legal thriller with some cat-and-mouse, then this is perfect!
