#MMBBR #Review #FirstLine #Judgement by @joefinder via #partner @DuttonBooks @penguinrandom who provided a #free #reviewcopy ( #mystery #thriller )

New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder returns with an explosive new thriller about a female judge and the one personal misstep that could lead to her--and her family's--undoing.

It was nothing more than a one-night stand. Juliana Brody, a judge in the Superior Court of Massachusetts, is rumored to be in consideration for the federal circuit, maybe someday the highest court in the land. At a conference in a Chicago hotel, she meets a gentle, vulnerable man and in a moment of weakness has an unforgettable night with him. They part with an explicit understanding that this must never happen again.

But back home in Boston, it becomes clear that this was no random encounter. The man from Chicago proves to have an integral role in a case she's presiding over--a sex-discrimination case that's received national attention. Juliana discovers that she's been entrapped, her night of infidelity captured on video. Strings are being pulled in high places, a terrifying unfolding conspiracy that will turn her life upside down. But soon it becomes clear that personal humiliation, even the possible destruction of her career, are the least of her concerns, as her own life and the lives of her family are put in mortal jeopardy.

In the end, turning the tables on her adversaries will require her to be as ruthless as they are.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

#FirstLine ~A perfect May night in Chicago, warm but not quite balmy.

Wow! This book is quite the read. It is action packed and thrilling. It is a fast paced ripped from the headlines roller-coaster of a ride. It will keep you burning through the pages and will keep you up WAY past your bedtime! A book that had my heart pounding and my mind attempting to figure how it would end. The characters felt so real and the story was so twisty and turny! A total package!
