From AudioFile:

Twenty-two courtroom and law-related stories compiled by noted mystery writer Linda Fairstein feature some of the best mystery writers in this country. Some of the works have more twists than a pretzel. The featured writers include Fairstein herself, James Grippando, Barbara Parker, Kate Gallison, Phyllis Cohen, and many more. From the Salem Witch trials to the slick scenes of today, the listener is propelled through a selection of varied courtroom drama and suspense. Cassandra Campbell is the more appealing of the two narrators. Her voice is crisp, friendly, and engaging. Furthermore, she has a broad range of vocal intonations. Paul Boehmer has a light but gruff voice that tends toward monotony. Just when one is about to give up on him, he produces a redeeming bellow or chuckle that keeps one engaged. Despite these few negatives, this compilation will satisfy mystery lovers and fans of legal drama. A.L.H. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
