    You know you have a good thriller when your legs keep tapping on the ground from anxiety about what will happen next. A good combination of a courtroom procedural with escalating tension that enthralls the reader to read at a fast pace. When Judge Juliana Brody steps out of her normal ...

    I looked back at my comments on the last Finder I read, and I'd say the same this time: this might be better read--at a very fast pace--than listened to. Then there's less sighing and eye-rolling when stupid decisions are made. The book has an interesting premise: a well-respected judg...

    Finder is known for writing plots that could, at least in theory, happen to anyone. The idea being that the protagonist isn't someone of extraordinary means who does something outlandish to trigger the events of the story. In this case, it's the story of a woman's single lapse in judgm...

    The more that I read this one the more interesting it became. Juliana made a bad decision at the start of the book, but really, it shouldn't have been that bad of a decision. A decision that could potentially ruin her whole life. I loved that once Juliana realized what was going on she...

    JUDGMENT is a bit of a stretch. I will admit that judges can be bought and blackmailed--but this story seems beyond the pale. If a judge is going to be foolish enough to have a one night stand--why, pray tell, does she not have it in her own room. The conspiracies nestled within consp...

    I have been a fan of Joseph Finder for quite some time now so when I was approved for a review of Judgment I broke into the requisite approved dance and got to reading ASAP. Like other reads by this author, the suspense does not letup and before long, the last page is turned, and the l...

    Joe Finder's standalones are always good, but this one made me so tense in places I actually had to set it down and walk away for a minute or two, while I remembered it was only fiction. Juliana is an extremely believable character, and it's always fun to see how he gets the little det...

    Smart and so intriguing! Loved it! The attention to detail was fantastic. This was my first book by Joseph Finder and I can see now why he?s my husband?s favorite author. A female judge who?s being blackmailed? The author hooked from the start! Suspenseful, intelligent and very w...

    The longer this story droned on, the more I wanted it to end. This kind of soft and whiny thriller grates rather than excites. 3 of 10 stars ...

    This was not one of Joseph Finder's best books. I like books about strong & feisty women, which in many ways Judge Brody is, but in other ways she was portrayed as being really dumb. The book was unbelievable & in the end, everything was neatly tied up with a red ribbon. The fu...

    Finder?s Judgment explores how even the most sacred institutions could become susceptible to blackmail and how doing the wrong thing is like drowning in quicksand that you keep falling deeper and deeper into. The story features a career-minded Massachusetts Judge who hopped into the ...

    I?ve read that there are no new, original plots, only new ways to tell an existing plot. This book takes the dumbest, most boring, told a gazillion times plot and does nothing even remotely original or even interesting with it. You just want to slap the lead character silly for b...

    I found this a thoroughly enjoyable read with suspense that built over the entirety of the story, mostly of the psychological type, but with some dead bodies thrown in occasionally. I was always eager to find out what was going to happen next. ...

    I was amazed at both how much I enjoyed this book as well as how incredibly topical it is. It is the story of Judge Juliana Brody, a judicial star whose life was upended by the mistake of sleeping with a stranger. This proves to be the catalyst for the rest of this totally engrossing t...

    Although I like the writing style of the author, I gave this book one star because the outcome of the storyline is completely unbelievable, not realistic. No one who battles the forces of evil, such as those described in this book, comes out unscathed. It?s just not possible. ...

    Judgment has an interesting premise: an up-and-coming judge based in Boston has a one night stand while at a conference in Chicago. A marital risk? Yes, but Judge Juliana Brody decides that since it's very clear it's a onetime moment, it's a minimal risk. Obviously, her judgment is ...
