Publisher's Summary

Two Hundred Jurors Completely Isolated from Society - Can Their Impartiality Lead to Justice?

Even the most incorruptible juror can be unwittingly influenced by others' opinions in the digital age, but more sinister forces are at work: Jury tampering has reached all-time highs. Unexpected verdicts are coming down more and more often, indicating that shadowy groups may be blackmailing jurors - and leaving the American justice system in shambles. Is impartiality even possible anymore?

Victoria Lewis, former governor of Virginia, thinks it is - and she has a plan to fix the broken system. Her home state is about to select 200 citizens to become full-time jurors. Those chosen will live in a refurbished prison for two years, where they'll be completely isolated from society and protected from all outside influences.

But someone always finds a way to cheat the system. And when a deadly political conspiracy reveals corruption that poisons even the highest echelons of government, everything Victoria has created stands on the brink of destruction. Can she protect the jurors, the justice system - or even herself?

    Story
    "Not the Good Listen I Had Hoped."

    This one missed the mark for me. From the beginning, it seemed poorly contrived and grossly over-written. And then things got worse. And worse. Perhaps had this been labeled sci-fi, I could have accepted things as they were: the commonwealth of Virginia allowing its Supreme Court to covertly select permanent jurors who would be paid $1m a year and required to live sequestered for that year in a converted state prison. This was ostensibly undertaken to quell jury tampering, something that had supposedly led to the imprisonment of the former governor's father when she was a child. Meanwhile, jury tampering was unabated. But the concept just never clicked. Not my cup of tea, sad to report!

    "just ok"

    The book was decent and story interesting, but the characters were difficult to follow with the narration (masculine characters were hard to differentiate). Also the story ending was a little too perfect and clean. In all entertaining but not much grabbing power as I found myself only marginally interested as the story progresses.
