"Single mother Annie Laird makes a huge mistake when she joins the jury at the murder trial of mob boss Louie Buffano. Immediately, Annie is contacted by the "Teacher", a Buffano lackey, who makes it clear that her life, and that of her son Oliver, depend on her saying two words: "Not Guilty". And so begins Green's masterfully manipulative thriller, a gem of deft plotting given added lustre through its rich, if not wholly cohesive, characterizations. The plot, jittering from one brutal, clever twist to the next, will keep readers in a cold sweat". - Publisher's Weekly
"This novel is less a courtroom drama than a gripping psychological cat and mouse game. It should be in very high demand in public libraries". - Library Journal

Annie Laird doesn't know the horror that awaits her when she's picked to serve on the jury of accused murderer and mobster Louie Buffano. The dual readership of Davidovich and Heard functions perfectly. Heard takes on the gritty, tough voices of the mobsters while Davidovitch counter-balances with the innocent, terrified voice of Annie. I.Z. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
