Book review #43 – The Final Judgement

The Final JudgmentThe Final Judgment by Richard North Patterson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I REALLY enjoyed this author! A very compelling story with intrigue from the start about a middle aged attorney on the cusp of receiving a Presidential nomination to a judgeship who is then thrust back unwittingly to her hometown and long estranged family. The writing is sharp, focused, not overly descriptive or bogged down with minutiae. The pace is very good flipping back to the past at just the right times to fill in pockets of history necessary to the murder mystery unfolding in the present. While I had correctly guessed rather early who the murderer is, I was pleasantly surprised at the twists and reveals that lead there. Very well done!
