Publisher Description

From James Patterson, the world's #1 bestselling author: a young lawyer takes on the judge who is destroying her hometown—and ends up in jail herself.

In picture-perfect Erva, Alabama, the most serious crimes are misdemeanors. Speeding tickets. Shoplifting. Contempt of court. 
 
Then why is the jail so crowded? And why are so few prisoners released? There’s only one place to learn the truth behind these incriminating secrets. 
 
Sometimes the best education a lawyer can get is a short stretch of hard time.

Jailhouse Lawyer

Terrible waste of time.

JerryBGoode ,

Average at best

This is two books and both of the female protagonists are over- done emotional caricatrures of what it take to be a trial lawyer. I was one for 38 years. You cannot just cry all the time as things don’t go your way. The legal rulings and the whole concept of the dominant crooked Judge in the first story is beyond any sense of reality. The second story is much better and the trial aspects more true to what actually happens in court but the writing is at times sophomoric.

Difficult Topic

It’s always satisfying when the bad guy gets caught. And it’s Patterson. Always fun to read.
