Publisher's Summary

Every jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him. In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark tobacco trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake begins routinely, then swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he's being watched. Soon they have to be sequestered. Then a tip from an anonymous young woman suggests she is able to predict the jurors' increasingly odd behaviour. Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more importantly, why?

It was excellent

Funny courtroom story, lots of drama and humour. There was an extremely amusing scene in court, ah dang, can't spoil it.

Interesting idea

Standard Grisham fare and that's not meant in a derogatory way. Little man against big corporation(s) but I liked the story.

I wasn't keen on Nicholas, the main character but that was probably the intention as you don't really get to know the real person, rather a series of facades he adopts to play the game. Quite like all the stories about the individual jurors as this added depth to them.

Overall a neat tidy ending which wraps everything up albeit nothing unexpected. However, I may have read the book years ago hence not being surprised by anything.

Nice story to listen to as wont tax you too much but enjoyable nevertheless. And we always like seeing the bad boys get their comeuppance.
