The Last Plea Bargain by Randy Singer

From the Back of the Book:

Plea bargains may grease the rails of justice, but for Jamie Brock, prosecuting criminals is not about cutting deals. In her three years as assistant DA, she’s never plea-bargained a case and vows she never will. But when a powerful defense attorney is indicted for murder and devises a way to bring the entire justice system to a screeching halt, Jamie finds herself at a crossroads. One by one, prisoners begin rejecting deals. Prosecutors are overwhelmed, and felons start walking free on technicalities. To break the logjam and convict her nemesis, Jamie must violate every principle that has guided her young career. But she has little choice. To convict the devil, sometimes you have to cut a deal with one of his demons.

My Thoughts:

I've been a HUGE fan of Randy Singer's legal thrillers, but he has really written a stellar novel with "The Last Plea Bargain."  Twists and turns galore, and just when you think it's winding up...the story gets its second wind.

Be prepared for an exhausting, exhilarating reading experience!  NO ONE writes like Randy one.

I felt for Jamie from the first page, and I couldn't stand Caleb Tate from the moment I met him.  Mace kept me on my toes, and LA was a mystery that left me feeling uneasy.  It's almost like you know who to watch out for, then Randy flips the story on its head and you wonder about people you've trusted from page one...or did you really ever trust anyone?

When the truth comes out....well...buckle up, people!  You're in for a bumpy ride!  This is by far Randy Singer's best, and I've read them all.  I would love, love, LOVE for a top-notch movie producer to get a copy of this one and, as long as Randy had final say, make it into a big-screen motion picture...oh, how I'd pay to see that!

Plus, you'll find a true moral dilemma: if you had information that someone you dearly loved wasn't the person you'd always believed him/her to be...what would you sacrifice to keep the secret?  Could you?  Would you?

In the meantime, I'll settle for re-reading the book.  And yes, even though I know how it ends, the stories are that engaging...I've read many of Randy's novels more than once.

I received an advance galley via NetGalley of "The Last Plea Bargain", published by Tyndale Publishing, in exchange for an honest review.

Seriously, get your copy NOW, and get to reading!  You won't be disappointed...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, and the Golden Bookmark for Writing Excellence from me!

Happy Reading!
