In a courtroom, David Sloane can grab a jury and make it dance. He can read jurors' expressions, feel their emotions, know their thoughts. With this remarkable ability, Sloane gets juries to believe the unbelievable, excuse the inexcusable, and return the most astonishing verdicts. The only barrier to Sloane's professional success is his conscience --- until he gets a call from a man later found dead, and his life rockets out of control.
The call is from Joe Branick, special assistant and personal friend of the president of the United States, made just hours before Branick eats his gun. In a single moment, the death of a man Sloane has never met propels the jury master out of his successful career and into a whirlwind that is shattering lives from San Francisco to Washington, D.C. To get back his life, Sloane needs to know more. About Branick. About others who are in as much danger as he is. And about the president and his men. But in the face of a secret that spans decades and governments, and puts billions of dollars at risk, there's one thing David Sloane can't possibly envision: that this runaway conspiracy is all about him-and only he can stop it.
A whole new kind of thriller from a remarkable new writer, THE JURY MASTER hurtles through one hairpin turn and into another. As a brilliant attorney fights for his life, he gets closer and closer to an explosive truth: about who he is, how little he knows, and who is the master of his fate...
