Shanghaied into jury duty and placed on a hopelessly boring civil case, Stanley Hastings swings into action when a juror is murdered, and engineers a most unusual courtroom climax. An amusing inside look at the jury selection system and a must for any prospective juror.
"This unlikely private detective operates in an exquisitely refined state of paranoia ... he manages to effect a pretty astonishing resolution to the mystery ... (the case) turns out to have a surprising kick at the end.”
—Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
"Terrific…You’re never, never, never, ever gonna guess whodunit!" —San Diego Tribune
"A great book … hilarious … you’ll become addicted to Stanley Hastings." —Mystery News
"The last scene of the tale's approximately forty in-court pages embodies a terrific stunt payoff, and, all in all, this is a hugely enjoyable novel."
—Jon L. Breen, Novel Verdicts, The Armchair Detective
