Description

A near-future legal thriller from the bestselling author of The Devil’s Advocate, “an expert weaver of suspense” (Fresh Fiction).
 
In this dizzying novel of speculative fiction, the legal system is picked apart for all the fault lines upon which justice quakes. Imagine a system wherein a pool of professional jurors is trained to judge evidence objectively. It’s clean, it’s fair, it’s infallible. But when the jury foreman goes missing, the FBI puts agents Holland Byron and new recruit Wyatt Ert on the case.
 
Soon other jurors go missing and turn up dead—as do their wives and husbands. Is the entire program under attack or is it just guilty defendants exacting their revenge? The shocking discoveries Byron and Ert make about the new legal system turn a sci-fi detective story into a challenge on the nature of man and the pursuit of good and evil in an increasingly impersonal world.
 
“Neiderman’s forte has always been his intricate, suspenseful stories.” —Booklist
 
“Neiderman never lets his audience down.” —West Coast Review of Books
