The US Attorney's Office for the Central District of California is responsible for enforcing the federal law of the US for an area that is larger than 14 states and has a population of more than five million people. Here, follow Lizzie Scott as she untangles an excessive-force case against a cop, all while balancing agency turf battles, secret grand jury proceedings, interoffice rivalries, and on-the-make prosecutors. If she indicts the deputy, she faces death threats from the police, if she loses the case, a killer will go free, and her career will be destroyed. It's the ultimate insider's look into the nuts and bolts of a federal civil rights prosecution, with fascinating legal and moral issues.
Author is new to me and normally lawyer stories are boring. This was was exciting and believable. Great listen. And leaves you hanging for the next one.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I listen to audio books all the time. I have forced myself to get through 2 hours of this boring story. I am not sure if it is the story with the narrator or both. It is just that bad. Don't waste your time!
What was most disappointing about Jonathan Shapiro’s story?
So bad I can't listen
