It's a good thing I didn't notice that Van Wormer also wrote "West End" or I might not have picked this out of the pile to read. While the other book was forgettable, "Jury Duty" was riveting. Van Wormer got the details of Manhattan jury service exactly right, and both the court case and personal interactions among the jurors were enthralling. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. I felt like it was gripping and I couldn't wait to find out how the jury voted and just what the heck Alex's problem was. Really a very enjoyable read. ( )

The story is told through the eyes of writer Libby Winslow, a juror in the trial of a playboy accused of murdering a model who spurned him. While lawyers argue and witnesses tell their story, the jurors experience their own little dramas, including Libby who debates which of two fellow jurors to have a fling with--Alex, the carpenter, or William, the banker.
