    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A high-stakes thrill ride through the darkest corners of the Sunshine State, from the author hailed as “the best thriller writer alive” by Ken Follett

    We expect our judges to be honest and wise. Their integrity is the bedrock of the entire judicial system. We trust them to ensure fair trials, to protect the rights of all litigants, to punish those who do wrong, and to oversee the flow of justice. But what happens when a judge bends the law or takes a bribe?
       
    Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. It is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct. After nine years with the Board, she knows that most problems are caused by incompetence, not corruption.

    But a corruption case eventually crosses her desk. A previously disbarred lawyer is back in business, and he claims to know of a Florida judge who has stolen more money than all other crooked judges combined. And not just crooked judges in Florida. All judges, from all states, and throughout United States history. And now he wants to put a stop to it. His only client is a person who knows the truth and wants to blow the whistle and collect millions under Florida law. When the case is assigned to Lacy, she immediately suspects that this one could be dangerous. Dangerous is one thing. Deadly is something else.

      I enjoyed the story but was looking for more. It felt a bit unfinished almost rushed... guess he was trying to meet that deadline.

      This book was well constructed, almost too well built. The main characters and overall plot were intricately described for about 80% of the book and moved very slowly. The conclusion, in the last part of the book, moved very quickly to a fairly obvious conclusion. Overall the book was enjoyable, but lacked drama and excitement.

      It was good enough to kill time but it was very bland. The story started to build then good overcame and it was over. It was almost like he got tired of writing. This is one of those books you keep by the toilet at home. It'll pass the time but don't expect much more than that.
