The Jury Master Audiobook

The Jury Master

Author: Robert Dugoni Narrator: Robertson Dean Release Date: March 2006

"Thriller of the first order, delivered in high-octane prose. Robert Dugoni is a bona fide new talent." –John Lescroart In a courtroom, David Sloane can grab a jury and make it dance. He can read jurors' expressions, feel their emotions, know their thoughts. With this remarkable ability, Sloane gets juries to believe the unbelievable, excuse the inexcusable, and return the most astonishing verdicts. The only barrier to Sloane's professional success is his conscience–until he gets a call from a man later found dead, and his life rockets out of control. The call is from Joe Branick, special assistant and personal friend of the President of the United States, made just hours before Branick swallows his own gun. In a single moment, the death of a man Sloane has never met propels the jury master out of his successful life and into a whirlwind that is shattering lives from San Francisco to Washington, D.C. To get back his life, Sloane needs to know more. About Branick. About others who are in as much danger as he is. And about the president and his men. But in the face of a secret that spans decades and governments, and puts millions of dollars at risk, there's one thing David Sloane can't possibly envision: that this runaway conspiracy is all about him–and only he can stop it. A whole new kind of thriller from a remarkable new writer, THE JURY MASTER hurtles through one hairpin turn into another. As a brilliant attorney fights for his life, he gets closer and closer to an explosive truth: about who he is, how little he knows, and who is the master of his fate…

The Inside Ring: A Novel

Author: Michael Lawson, Mike Lawson Narrator: Pete Bradbury, Peter Bradbury Release Date: May 2005

"The video begins with the President walking toward a marine helicopter . . ." From a bluff overlooking Georgia's untamed Chattooga River, an assassin fires three shots. The President of the United States is wounded; his best friend and a Secret Service agent are killed. Two days later, a man in Landover, Maryland, commits suicide and in the man's home is overwhelming evidence that he was responsible for the assassination attempt. General Andy Banks, the Secretary of Homeland Security, is nursing a guilty conscience. Only days before the assassination attempt on the President, Banks had received a note with a dire warning: "Eagle One is in danger. Cancel Chattooga River. The inside ring has been compromised. This is not a joke." The message-on Secret Service stationery-was signed "An agent in the wrong place." Banks immediately passed the note on to Secret Service Director Patrick Donnelly, who proceeded to ignore it. Even after the assassin is found dead, Banks is determined to dig a little deeper. He turns to Speaker of the House John Fitzgerald Mahoney. The Speaker has a guy-an under-the-radar, go-to guy he uses for things like this-things he can't afford to have connected to his office. The guy is Joe DeMarco, an honest lawyer with a sordid family history. After one meeting with Banks, DeMarco realizes he's in way over his head. But Mahoney finds the prospect of taking down Donnelly irresistible and sets DeMarco on a trail that twists through the Secret Service, the FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security and snakes all the way back to one of the more enduring mysteries of the twentieth century. Brimming with suspense, authenticity, and wit, The Inside Ring marks the debut of a major new talent and introduces a cast of intriguing characters with many more cases ahead.
