Reviewed in Australia on 7 April 2019
A torturous and torrid tale of abuse, physical and of privilege delving into the seedier sides of political manoeuvring and marital relations. When all options seem to be exhausted, when no alternative seems obvious, Dismas Hardy pulls a veritable ace out of his sleeve to forestall the inevitable outcome. Great pace, surprising ending.

Yet another courtroom drama with little courtroom drama. Thin plot worth about 60 pages puffed up with relentless pandering to bogus psychological theory. That it was critically acclaimed tells you everything you need to know about critical acclaim.

Never disappointedReviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 August 2009
I am never disappointed by any books from John T Lescroart. He develops characters and storylines like no other author I have read.

DisappointingReviewed in Canada on 24 September 2018
I'm a big fan of John Lescroat's books, but I just couldn't get into this one. I found it boring and never finished it, the first time that has ever happened to me with a Lescroat book. I am now reading a later book of his and having trouble putting it down, so he hasn't lost his touch. I just couldn't get interested in The 13th Juror.

Expectations Sadly Belied.Reviewed in India on 8 November 2015
An intriguing beginning but the narrative somehow gets befuddled quite early. I am no legal expert (esp. on US law) but I can scarce believe that the earlier cold-blooded murder could so easily have been overlooked despite the extreme provocation; I plodded on with Hardy, chasing a variety of "red herrings", only to arrive at a conveniently contrived ending that meant "happy ever after" for all!! No mention of the older lawyer ( the know-it-all who seems to know little) after the final denouement. Odd! A forgettable read, so many, many miles short of the likes of "Presumed Innocent" & such eminently memorable courtroom classics.
