A LEGAL THRILLER TO MAKE HISTORY, IN TRANSLATION IN SEVERAL COUNTRIES AND ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING LIST, BY THE WINNER OF THE OSCAR FOR BEST SCRIPT FOR DECRYPTING ENIGMA. Shoot a syringe of adrenaline into the heart of Twelve Merciless Men and you will get The Jury 272. A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window Jessica, the teenage daughter of the great Los Angeles mogul Lou Silver, disappears on her way home from school. Her teacher, Bobby Nock, a twenty-five-year-old African American, becomes the prime suspect when illicit messages that he had exchanged with the student come to light and the victim's blood is found in her car. The judicial process becomes the most mediatic of the last decade. The prosecution believes they are facing a solid and easy to win case, but Maya Seale, a young woman who is part of the popular jury, is convinced of Bobby's innocence and will begin to influence the rest of the members to find him not guilty. This controversial decision, which will change everyone's destiny forever, is questioned ten years later, when the case is reopened and the career of Maya, now a prestigious lawyer, falters. And the secretive lives of the jurors and the Silver family itself will also be shaken, while all trace of Bobby has been lost. Drawing inspiration from his own experience as a juror, Graham Moore hits us with a riotous legal thriller with clever twists and surprising flashbacks. Moore skillfully combines flawless character construction with increasingly explosive revelations in a story that seems like it was made for the big screen (Library Journal). Reviews: The essential thriller of the year. The Sunday Express An excellent novel that takes a scathing look at the American judicial system, media scrutiny, racism. Moore has invented a new canon for legal thrillers. Publishers Weekly An addictive plot and fast pace. Booklist The most gripping thriller I've read in over a decade. Sophie Hannah The unstoppable and hypnotic rhythm keeps the reader glued to the pages. Brilliant Crime Time. ... Moore's career as a screenwriter explains how well the plot is constructed and the excellent characterization of the characters. Thriller of the month. The Sunday Times Hugely entertaining. The Observer A wild court thriller with clever twists and shocking flashbacks. ... Moore expertly combines deft character construction with increasingly explosive revelations in a story that feels like it was made for the big screen. Library Journal Intricate, rhythmic and with a denouement that Agatha Christie herself would have been proud of. Shots E-Mag A tense, emotional, outstanding read that hooked me to the last page. Caroline Kepnes A spicy dish cooked with intrigue, full of hidden secrets and unexpected reasons. The New York Tomes Book Review What a tour de force.
