The Jury Has Reached A Verdict...

...and The Last Juror does not, unfortunately, change the classic John Grisham pattern. The "mystery" and "unexpected twist" are neither mysterious nor unexpected. The story doesn't just dribble to the end... thankfully, there is something close to an actual ending here. But it just isn't a very satisfying read.

For a very different kind of thriller/mystery novel experience, check out Stephen Carter's The Emperor of Ocean Park.
