Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. She is a lawyer, not a cop, and it is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct. After nine years with the Board, she knows that most problems are caused by incompetence, not corruption. But a corruption case eventually crosses her desk. A previously disbarred lawyer is back in business with a new identity. He now goes by the name Greg Myers, and he claims to know of a Florida judge who has stolen more money than all other crooked judges combined. And not just crooked judges in Florida. All judges, from all states, and throughout U.S. history. What's the source of the ill-gotten gains? It seems the judge was secretly involved with the construction of a large casino on Native American land. The Coast Mafia financed the casino and is now helping itself to a sizable skim of each month's cash. The judge is getting a cut and looking the other way. It's a sweet deal: Everyone is making money. But now Greg wants to put a stop to it. His only client is a person who knows the truth and wants to blow the whistle and collect millions under Florida law. Greg files a complaint with the Board on Judicial Conduct, and the case is assigned to Lacy Stoltz, who immediately suspects that this one could be dangerous. Dangerous is one thing. Deadly is something else.… (more)

An anonymous person comes to Lay Stoltz, a lawyer, through a middleman as he fears for his life if his identity is discovered. He claims to have evidence of a corrupt judge in Florida and wants Lacy to take the case. The case becomes extremely dangerous as Lacy works through the claims that the judge has stolen more money than all the judges in history. ( )

Pretty good story. ( )

This was a really good story of corruption, intrigue, drama and satisfaction. It was quite long for an audio book, but I prefer unabridged versions. I enjoyed Cassandra Campbell's renditions. The story moved right along and the suspense and action came to a great conclusion at the end. ( )

I thought this was interesting. It centers around two things that I haven't seen much about—investigation for judicial conduct and law matters on Native American land. In this book corrupt leaders in a Native American tribe and a dirty judge are connected in a huge scam. Lacy is not used to a case of this magnitude. She's handled cases of sexual harassment, drinking on the job, etc., but this case has murders and huge sums of money. It's a case for the FBI, but by the time she finds out how deadly matters are, she's in too deep. It has plenty of twists and turns that kept me connected to the story. ( )

I have enjoyed many John Grisham novels the last 20-30 years, but it is time to forget that because I am not enjoying much of his newer novels. This one is uninspiring, overly complicated, unlikely with characters that are barely characters and writing more like notes than a novel.
