    Force of Justice grabbed me from the very first page and I was positive I was going to be leaving a five-star review. That made it especially sad for me when things changed. One thing I reeeally dislike is when a character gets the absolute crap beat out of him/her, and then a day or two later they're fine! (view spoiler)[So, after Brad gets beaten and then the crap kicked out of him by someone wearing boots, he's picking up his new love and putting her on the bed so they can have sex. Really?

(hide spoiler)] This book also needed much better editing. On the positive side, I liked the courtroom parts, and really like the twist at the end! I guess you should take this review with a grain of salt. The book has received a lot of fabulous reviews but it just wasn't for me.

    Good Read Not horrible, but not good. At best, mediocre. Watch the movie Legal Eagles and be better entertained. I felt something for the main character when he gave up on his marriage, and when a defense witness turned hostile at trial. The grammar mechanics were good, but character and story development were weak. The book had possibilities which I hope the author develops in his next books. He has the talent to do so. Thank you, Mr. Miller, for the read.

    I rarely give 5 stars I almost never write a review. But this story held me captive from beginning to end and I read it in a day. It’s a relevant topic of discussion and the plot twist at the end was perfect.

    The kind of book you want finish in one sitting. A page turner. Crisp clear and moves fast enough, cutting all the chase to add pages.

    Good book, but... This was entertaining, my first read by this author. I'll probably buy another book by the author, J. J. Miller. Not having read "about the author" notes, I'm not certain whether he writes primarily for a British audience but, based on quite a few British english uses throughout the book, I think he does. That's probably the reason for 4 stars instead of 5. There were many instances where I had to look things up in order to understand the author's meaning. That's not a very big d Good book, but...

That's not a very big deal but the author might consider two versions of his books; one for American readers and one for British. (If the author or his editors are interested, I have a couple of pages of things I looked up for clarity.) All in all, a good read.

    Without " casting dispersions" I would suggest hiring ( or firing) an editor. This was an interesting plot, with enough balanced dynamics to keep one wondering. The minute detail of evidence at the eleventh hour, which turns the tide, seemed a bit of deus ex machina. Readers of a lot of court fiction will find the trial scenes very unrealistic, with extensive "testimony" offered by cross examining attorneys, as well as facts not in evidence, and extensive heresay in testimony that is not challenge Without " casting dispersions" I would suggest hiring ( or firing) an editor.

    Pretty impressive. I thought I'd had my fill of Hollywood whodunnits, but you gotta give a guy a chance, right? The story grabs you from the get-go. I felt for Brad right from the beginning, but didn't think it wise to jump into bed with Abby so soon. Thankfully, Brad has a partner, Jack, who I hope to see more of. He sometimes seems to be the only one thinking straight. Lots of unsavory characters, but isn't that Hollywood, after all? Lots of blaming, whining. No real character definition.

    Wow! An unexpected delight! In search of something fast yet well-written - this book was presented as one I’d be interested in based on - well you know. The story did keep me interested from the second chapter and I sort of had an idea of how it would turn out - but there were times I wasn’t AS sure. Not too much love story - a little bit heavy on cookie-cutter Hollywood personas (but perhaps it’s the nature of those types) - a very good read that leaves you feeling positive about our justice sys Wow!

    Book 1 of the Brad Madison legal thriller series by JJ Miller is among the more entertaining "Hollywood" legal thrillers that I've read. It's an easy reading page turner about a likable criminal defense attorney who is asked to represent a movie producer accused of murder. Several dramatic & very unanticipated twists make for a strong finish. There is apparently a pre-series short story that provides some background insight into the main character which I intend to check out before book 2 is pub Book 1 of the Brad Madison legal thriller series by JJ Miller is among the more entertaining "Hollywood" legal thrillers that I've read.

    Good book. Odd story. Brad is hired to defend a Hollywood producer / director who is being framed for a murder of a main actor who is a young confused boy. Brad figures out the culprit after a dark dose of sex scandals and under age Hollywood sex parties thrown by some of the elites and his competitors. Story is odd but to follow how Brad figures out the truth and nails the culprit is interesting.

    FORCE OF JUSTICE is a fairly simple whodunnit mystery with a lawyer defending his client, a mega millionaire Hollywood Producer accused of murder. It is a quick easy read but nothing that is memorable or particuarily original. It is enertaining but not anything special. The writer writes well but the plot was kind of a let down. The author is a good writer and has written better books than this one.

    Excellent Modern Day Mystery I think this book was an excellent read particularly in this time of child pornography and molestation. The story has a believability about it especially in this day and time. The mystery about the killing, and the courtroom exchanges were very believable. The surprise ending was Magnificent !!

    Pretty good. I liked the story. Some things were glossed over a bit too quickly and I found Brad's response to his marriage to be shallow and not believable. However all I all a book worth reading. I'll definitely try Book #2! Pretty good. I liked the story.

    Kept me quessing Giving a 5 star review for this book was for the following. 1. The writing was easy to follow. 2. The author kept the reader guessing as to the fate of Mr. Sullivan. Great plot.

    Plot twists kept me reading Good storyline, main character is smart and tempted by...what? Hard to feel sympathy for the accused since the swirl of movie industry characters are not good people. The ending did not let the savvy reader down, since it was a possibility earlier on.

    VG first book of a series. Brad Madison is fortunate to have an adept investigator. Great story with some plot twists that seem almost impossible to rectify. Very enjoyable read. Awaiting book 2.

    I loved this mystery finding it very difficult to put down which is why I gave it 5 stars. Thinking one has it all figured out when suddenly there is a big twist and your totally wrong. And this happens several times until the final page when one gets the final twist.

    This was an excellent book. The courtroom drama moved much faster than most of the legal thrillers I've read and the protagonist was very intelligent and likeable. I look forward to reading more in this series. This was an excellent book.
