The Last Plea Bargain by Randy Singer * A review and Book certificate GIVEAWAY


ABOUT THE LAST PLEA BARGAIN
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 REVIEW
  This is the first book I’ve read of Randy Singer’s and I’m so glad I found a new author. This book The Last Plea Bargain was just fantastic.
   I’ve always believed that an author who has been a doctor/nurse, police officer/detective or in this case lawyer make the best author, because they know so much more about their kind of stories than anyone else. They have so many cases they can pull information from. I just love Randy’s book because it seems so real.
  The Last Plea Bargain I couldn’t wait to read it and couldn’t get away from it, but was sad when I read the last page. Characters in books just become your friend and The Last Plea Bargain was that kind of book.
  The Last Plea Bargain is full of suspense and all kinds of twists and turns. I was so very surprised at the ending and what a climatic ending it was. I was sitting on the edge of my seat and read the pages as fast as I could.
  I really thought the concept of The Last Plea Bargain was neat. What would happen if everyone who was caught doing something wrong wanted to go to jail instead of taking a shorter or no sentence if they could provide some needed information to the police. Very interesting.
  The Last Plea Bargain is very strong in words and characters. It isn’t simple or weak, but full of very interesting action.
  This book is the most extraordinary legal thriller I  have read and will definitely read many more of Randy Singer’s books.
A five-star book and one of the best of 2012.
