villians are menacing, with a reach so long it s a wonder that they even needed to go after Juliana at all Of course, if that hadn t happened there d be no book So overlook that thought The chapters are short, the pace is quick, and the writingwell, Judgment opens with the weather Which, okay, sets the scene but it feels forced like a start with the weather and then move on to the Big Moment kind of thing It s clunky Judgment is fast, and it throws a lot of stuff at you, but you know exactly what s going to happen and characters are so predictable that some are 90 99% clothing descriptions, as if giving them even a semblance of personality would take too much time The whole thing reads as if everything in between The Next Moment in Plot is a waste of time, as if every character is like the weather Mention, and move on And that non stop action as plot, characters, everything it isn t enough for me Fast pace Awesome But not when, as with Judgment, that s all there is to be had I need.One

long, the last page is turned, and the last sentence is read I always look back like what the hell I wasn t ready for it to end Judgment introduces us to the honorable Judge Juliana Brody who usually plays it safe until one night, against her better judgment, she has a one night stand Determined to move on and get back to walking the straight and narrow path, Juliana is blind sided when she sees the man she had the one night stand with in her courtroom as counsel for the defendants Because the case she is presiding over is a high profile Enter the requisite blackmail notice and readers might suspect Judgment will be unoriginal but everyone makes mistakes It s OK That s why we have judges to make it right.Juliana Brody proves her self to be a formidable adversary for the extremely bad powers that be Knowing that any move she makes could lead to either death or humiliation, she charges forward with her plans to tilt the scales of justice in her favor What Finder makes work here in Judgment is that he provides a heroine that you can t help rooting for Plus, the bad guys are really shitty bad guys that will hesitate at nothing to get what they want In order for Judgment to work as well as it does is to have a protagonist that has the right connections Once the antagonist is discovered, it s hard seeing how an every man has a chance.Although I objected to finally coming off this roller coaster with Joseph Finder and Judge Brody, I am excited to tell other fans of his work that Judgment is a great, fast paced thriller, that I have come to expect from Finder I find in

what they eat, and what they like to do Finder creates tension that permeates even everyday activities fear and danger hang on every page, over every mundane event, in every conversation, and around

the rotten evil core Readers keep turning pages searching for clues, and looking for options and solutions Then, there is a plan.Finder has created a complicated web of double cross, espionage, financial impropriety, and international conspiracy at the highest levels Judgement is a compelling story of corporate misdeeds, corruption, and just plain dirty work of the utmost nastiness Readers

feats that would be utterly beyond believability if someone were to try to explain them outside of the pages of the story, that they become difficult to defend once one tries to explain them to others Judge Juliana makes one epic mistake The rest of the book is about the aftermath, which of course is much convoluted than it first seemed I can accept that, we all make mistakes all the time and life has a habit of throwing curveballs What I can t quite wrap my mind around is the way she ultimately extricates herself so seamlessly with very few lasting consequences, after pulling off Herculean Feats and mind bending acts of deception that it seems like the people she was up against would have seen through every step of the way I rolled my eyes quite a bit, even while continuing to turn pages to see what magic rabbit she d pull out of her hat next Ultimately, I suppose it boils down to the fact that I did continue to turn the pages and I did want to see what would happen next I would not consider this one of my favorites by Finder though It felt a little forced and formulaic then, for example, The Switch, which I thoroughly enjoyed even though it too had some eye rolling moments Still, I suppose the average Joe wins the day trope is a trope for a reason there is an undeniable bit of glee to be found when a regular person defeats The Machine in whatever form it appears, and that s likely what keeps readers coming back for even if that is starting to lose some of its shine for meThanks to Penguin First to Read for my review copy flag Like see review Jan 29, 2019 Brei
