"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 an infamous 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 reevaluate 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."--Back cover.

Well written & thought provoking. Brought about a renewed empathy for our justice system. It seems most of us want justice when we have been "wronged", but plead mercy when in the "wrong". The writer masterfully demonstrates our commonality thru the script & then defines how "mercy triumphs over justice". It brings healthy discussion to the table.

Great crime fiction. Author did a great job providing enough characters to keep things very interesting right to the end. The ending was a little "cluttered" but it all worked. I will definitely look up additional titles by this author.
