Critic reviews

"Full of thrills and tension - but smart and human too." (Lee Child, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Jack Reacher Thrillers)
"In a time when our own justice system often blurs the lines between right and wrong, Judge Willa Carson is a heroine we can all salute. [Twisted Justice] is a taut and thought-provoking mystery that leaves readers both satisfied and looking forward to the next Willa Carson adventure." (P. J. Nunn, The Charlotte Austin Review)

Disappointing

I had high hopes for this novel, having read Diane Capri's take on the season for Lee Child's character, Jack Reacher. However, I was disappointed to find that, in this instance, she can't really tell a tale.

The main character is a judge, a former lawyer, who takes on an independent, private investigation to clear her husbands' name of a crime that she's convinced he didn't commit. Given that her professional aptitude should enable her to ask searching, pressing and probing questions, she does a really poor job of it. She makes silly mistakes and shows poor judgment. Not at all worthy of the character of a judge or a lawyer.

If this had been a physical book, I feel sure that I would have skipped past a few pages, to get back into the meat of the story, because several parts of the tale just seemed incredulous or unnecessary! In this day & age of mobile technology (2000), why carry around a portable recorder if you do not prepare yourself to use it to confirm your discoveries?

Finally, the whole tale is resolved, unsatisfactorily, in the epilogue. Nothing conclusive is gained and, I find it doubtful that, that lack of credibility would have been acceptable in a real world scenario! But, what do I know?

In the end, the concept of the story was a good one, I just feel that it could have been told in a more engaging, enjoyable, plausible way.

I am not tempted to read anymore of Ms Capri's own work.

Way too long

And gets really tiresome at points. Would be a lot better if it was 30 to 40% shorter
