From Publishers Weekly
Bestsellers Patterson and Gross (Lifeguard) once again deliver what their fans expect in this slapdash revenge thriller. When mob godfather Dominic Cavello is finally brought to trial by FBI agent Nick Pellisante, his longtime nemesis, the accused is strangely unconcerned even as a parade of his former criminal associates finger him as having ordered a hit on a corrupt businessman. The gangster's plan to intimidate the decision-makers at his trial reaches its climax when he arranges for a bomb to blow up the bus transporting the jury. The sole survivor teams up with Pellisante to make Cavello pay. Numerous legal howlers that would be obvious even to those who only know about trials from watching Law and Order may annoy some readers.

Judge and Jury gets off to a slightly slow start but delivers plenty of twists and turns. FBI agent Nick Pellisante has finally done the impossible: captured Mob boss Dominic Cavello. The jury is selected and Cavello's trial progresses smoothly--it seems the conviction Pellisante is hoping for is within his reach. Several formerly loyal henchmen now sitting in jail strike deals with the prosecution and testify about the savage murders Cavello ordered, and Pellisante takes the stand to detail how Cavello shot two of his colleagues while trying to elude capture. But Cavello has hired Richard Nordeshenko, a methodical and calculating killer, to make sure the trial never concludes. Nordeshenko carries out his plan with brutal efficiency, leaving a wake of devastation in his path. Pellisante is crushed by the abrupt end of the trial and determined to make sure that the retrial isn't similarly derailed, but Cavello and Nordeshenko have an even more diabolical plan in store this time around. A compelling hero and a truly evil villain distinguish this exciting read. Kristine Huntley

FBI agent Nick Pellisante is feeling proud and satisfied - he's brought Mafia don Dominic Cavello to trail. His evidence is incontrovertible, former mobsters are willing to testify so it looks as if Cavello will get what he deserves at last.
Speaking of Cavello, who is also known as the Electrician, forget every other Mafioso you've ever read about or seen, this guy is absolutely merciless, brutality is his middle name.
Patterson is such a deft author that for a while we think all is going smoothly at the trial - not so. Just when we think we've figured out what's doing to happen next - it doesn't. Cavello calls in Richard Nordeshenko, a killer who would just as soon do you in as look at you. He creates a plan sure to put the trial on hold and underscore the power of Cavello.
Juror No. 11 is Andie DeGrasse, a sometimes actress and always single mom, who never wanted to be empaneled in the first place. But now she joins forces with Pellisante to exact their own kind of justice or is it revenge?
An outstanding legal thriller narrated by an accomplished voice performer.
- Gail Cooke
As the jury finishes deliberations, the Electrician makes a devastating move that no one could have predicted, he escapes thus shatters Andie's world. Now Pellisante and Andie form a bond and hunt the Electrician before he commits any other atrocities.
This novel has lots of action and is easy to read, chapters are short and without even realizing time passes and you have read half the book in no time. This thriller is quite entertaining and didn't let me down.
I highly recommend it, if you like exotic locales, believable villains, and heroes that will throw caution to the win to save the day!
