Juror #3
Launch Sample

A young attorney tries her first case . . . and it's Murder One in a legal thriller from the world's #1 bestselling writer.

Ruby Bozarth, a newcomer to Rosedale, Mississippi, is also fresh to the Mississippi Bar--and to the docket of Circuit Judge Baylor, who taps Ruby as defense counsel in a racially charged felony.





The murder of a woman from one of the town's oldest families has Rosedale's upper crust howling for blood, and the prosecutor is counting on Ruby's inexperience to help him deliver a swift conviction. Ruby's client is a college football star who has returned home after a career-ending injury, and she is determined to build a defense that will stick. She finds help in unexpected quarters from Suzanne, a hard-charging attorney armed to the teeth, and Shorty, a diner cook who knows more than he lets on.




Ruby never belonged to the country-club set, but once she nearly married into it. As news breaks of a second murder, Ruby's ex-fiancé, Lee Greene, shows up on her doorstep--a Southern gentleman in need of a savior. As lurid, intertwining investigations unfold, no one in Rosedale can be trusted, especially the twelve men and women impaneled on the jury. They may be hiding the most incendiary secret of all.

"I can't believe how good Patterson is . . . He's always on the mark."
Larry King, USA Today

New to both Rosedale, MS, and the Mississippi Bar, Ruby Bozarth is tasked with defending an African America college football star accused of murdering a woman from one of Rosedale's most prominent families. Because she's a newbie, the judge thinks he can ram through a conviction, but Ruby relies on tough attorney Suzanne and diner cook Shorty (who's got secrets) as she faces a jury with secrets of their own.

This is one of my favorite James Patterson novels by co-author Nancy Allen. And there are many great novels by James Patterson. Allen made the story fun, fast paced and full of action in this Mississippi legal thriller, featuring a start up young attorney thrown into a mix of fancy and rag tag characters. This was a total pleasure to enjoy. I just looked up Nancy Allen who is also the author of the Ozarks Mystery Series and can hardly wait for another Allen adventure. Looks like in that series the protagonist is a female PROSECUTOR? Wow. Meanwhile, look forward to a Juror #3 sequel because I am not complete with my longing for Ruby!
