BOOK REVIEW OF THE WEEK: Solemnly Swear by Nancy Moser

Hey!  I found another legal thriller that I really enjoyed.  Solemnly Swear by Nancy Moser is about a murder trial with a bungling defense attorney, a slick prosecutor and a victim-like defendant.  The cool thing about this legal novel is that the story is told from the perspective of the 12 jurors.  You don’t know the perspective of anyone in the courtroom except the jurors.  The fun part for the reader is trying to figure out what connections the jurors have with the trial or one another.

Moser does an excellent job of unraveling a complex story, not just about the trial but about many of the key jury members.  I bet this one was fun to write.  As in all her books, Moser does a wonderful job of honestly showing the games people play with God drawing near at one moment only to draw away the next.  If you like a good legal read, you’ll like Solemnly Swear.
