The Last Plea Bargain Review and Giveaway!!

About the Book:

Plea bargains may grease the rails of justice, but for Jamie Brock, prosecuting criminals is not about cutting deals. In her three years as assistant DA, she's never plea-bargained a case and vows she never will. But when a powerful defense attorney is indicted for murder and devises a way to bring the entire justice system to a screeching halt, Jamie finds herself at a crossroads. One by one, prisoners begin rejecting deals. Prosecutors are overwhelmed, and felons start walking free on technicalities. To break the logjam and convict her nemesis, Jamie must violate every principle that has guided her young career. But she has little choice. To convict the devil, sometimes you have to cut a deal with one of his demons.

My Thoughts:

Wow Wow wow! This is such an excellent book! In The Last Plea Bargain, Jamie Brock is an Assistant District Attorney.
Years ago, Her mother was murdered and her Father, who also was an Attorney, was shot in their own home. Jamie is determined to make sure justice prevails and that the man, Antoine Marshall, who has been sentenced to the death penalty for these crimes, receives his set punishment. Antoine claims he is innocent, but he has been chosen and identified in a line up by Jamie's father. Did her dad make a mistake and choose the wrong man? Just before the date of the execution Jamie's and her brother make a very painful decision to turn off the life support that has been keeping their father alive. Even though Jamie knew her Father could not respond in any way, she had so hoped to be able to tell him that the man who killed his wife and her mother had finally received his punishment.

Caleb Tate is an attorney who defended Antoine 12 years ago. Now Caleb is wanted for murder. He has been accused of murdering his wife. Of course, he also claims his innocence and will be representing himself. Jamie wants nothing more than to make sure this man is found GUILTY! Caleb is a mastermind and helps create total chaos in just about every area of this story.

Mace James is Antoine's attorney and is working on overturning his conviction and death penalty. He believes wholeheartedly in Antoine's innocence. Mace is willing to do whatever it takes to keep Antoine from taking that final walk to his death. But how far is too far?

When reading The Last Plea Bargain, I had such a difficult time putting it down. I just had to know what was going to happen next. As Randy Singer plays out this story, he does an excellent job keeping you on the edge of your seat ~ or couch, or swing, or wherever it is you might choose to read. :) I connected with each person and had such emotions for all of them. I would root Mace on in his plight to save Antoine, or hurt for Jamie as she went through the highs and lows of this trial. Losing your parent is one of the most difficult things to experience, but when they are murdered, I can only imagine the stress of waiting for that day when justice is served! I would have to say it was Caleb Tate who brought out the not so nice side of me.
