    Book details

The explosive new thriller from the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Undue Influence"
An unlikely defense...
Judge Armando "the Coconut" Acosta is arrested on charges of soliciting a prostitute in a sting operation for "johns, " and few, including attorney Paul Madriani, who has a long history of enmity with the judge, are sympathetic. When the young female decoy who snared the judge is found brutally murdered, Acosta is the prime suspect.
Abandoned by his friends, Acosta asks Paul to save his career from impending doom. Paul is reluctant, but when Acosta's original defense lawyer is forced off the case by a zealous district attorney looking for revenge, Paul steps forward to defend the judge. With his client now charged with murder, Paul faces the most daunting, disturbing, and complex case of his career.
Packed with nonstop drama and a cast of richly drawn characters that have come to be Steve Martini's trademark, "The Judge" delivers a decisive thumbs-up verdict.

Steve Martini, a former trial attorney, lives on the US West Coast with his wife and daughter. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Review Text

  • By I Mellor on 29 October 2000

    It is increasingly difficult to determine Steve Martini's motives for writing. Undue Influence and Compelling Evidence both contain sideswipes at the social origins of much that leads to the central events of those novels, but in The Judge there is a sustained attack on the very fabric of law and its enforcement in Capital City. The judge may be innocent of the crime for which he is arraigned, but his lack of innocence in a broader context is what has made him vulnerable. The city's finest must surely be disconcerted to see themselves stained by corruption charges, which bring the judge into the dock; and even the DA and his minions are portrayed here as just as culpable as anyone else. Perhaps it is no coincidence that the presiding judge at Acosta's trial is incorruptible - he is an out-of-towner with few if any political waters to chum. Another splendid, often humorous, direct, worrying, highly readable novel from a writer who, until, The Attorney, could not fail to impress.

    The Judge is a procedural legal thriller. The action flows and the plot is just about plausible. The weakness is that the story is very unlikely. So at the end of the book you've occupied some time enjoyably but at the same time resent the time spent.

    Arrived in good time. Read it some years ago and looking forward to another good read.
