    1. Armando Acosta is a judge disliked by nearly everyone-- especially the corrupt police officers who are the subject of a grand jury investigation conducted by Acosta. Acosta is arrested on a phony charge of solicitation and is suspended from the bench. However, when the decoy in the arrest turns up dead, it looks as though Acosta will be vacating the bench permanently. Acosta enlists the help of one of his least favorite attorneys, Paul Madriani, to help him beat the murder charge. In defending t [...]



    2. Even though this book was written 20 years ago, it still feels fresh and current. Paul Madriani is brought in to defend an unpopular judge accused of murdering a woman who was a witness against him in a prostitution sting. The plot also includes dirty cops and overly ambitious attorneys aspiring to public office. "The Judge" is very well-written with unforgettable characters. It's an early Madriani, who is still evolving into the crusader defense attorney we recognize from later books. You're ne [...]



    3. The JudgeLet me pleadThat my questNot enmeshWith verdictsDispensed fromThis woefulJudge's bench,For from thenceComes the stenchOf spiritMuch weakerThan the flesh.


    4. Enjoyed this book, good story, written this review twice, and it went to never never land. Lawyer Paul Madriani takes on a crooked union, a crooked police department and defends a Judge he dislikes. Along the way, the police department try and get him jailed and disbarred, and will stoop to nothing to stop him from finding out the truth. Twists and turns.


    5. Strong plot + annoying writing habits = 4 starsThe Judge is my second Martini book (the first as an audiobook) and I am almost embarrassed to say that I really liked it. I didn't realize that I was such a literary elitist (especially if you looked at the stuff I've reviewed) but deep-down inside I guess that there are just some books that I want to hate simply because everyone else likes them. Well, there's a reason why Martini's books have been perennial best-sellers - they're entertaining lega [...]


    6. Overview: Paul has gotten the kind of client that causes him to question his beliefs as a defense attorney. A judge, that he personally cannot stand, is caught up in a prostitution sting. The case mutates into a murder charge when the star witness, the decoy, is found dead of decidedly unnatural causes. Paul is willing to let his newest law partner take the reins of the case, until the prosecutor pulls a dirty trick. Now all that stands between Judge Acosta and a jail sentence is Paul Madriani a [...]


    7. Duh to me. I read this last year and forgot to enter it, I guess. That put me one book closer to reaching my goal. All I need to do is find a couple of more I forgot to enter and I get the big award for meeting my goal. Big Award. I want my big award.


    8. Another good Martini, right to the last drop. Good story, familiar characters and suspenseful right to the end.



    9. It's rare when life manages to touch the seemingly untouchable, but that's the scenario Martini describes so well in this book. One day, Armando Costa is an arrogant judge who has condescended without discrimination to lawyers who must practice in front of him. Then suddenly his life is overturned when an undercover female officer is murdered and the seemingly untouchable judge is arrested for the killing.Madriani is asked to defend the judge, and this is the tense page-turning story of that def [...]


    10. This is the first book that I have read by Steve Martini and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The plot was generally well planned out (there were a few loose ends that I would like to have had tidied up, but nothing that interfered with the story-line.) Characters were well fleshed out, in fact they were so well fleshed out, that the main female protagonist irritated me an immense amount. I have always loved court room dramas and this one did not disappoint.


    11. Loved itAs was true in Martini's previous 3 novels, this one starts out slow and a little prodding, but then it suddenly grabs you and takes you on an enjoyable ride. The story isn't really even about the judge, it's all about Madriani and his dogged pursuit of the truth. On to the next one.


    12. Attorney Paul Madriani has an adverse risk relationship with Judge Acosta. However, when Judge Acosta is accused of murder, Paul finds himself reluctantly agreeing to defend the judge.


    13. DNF. This was just another lawyer in trouble getting a big case, blah, blah, blah. I thought the story was too slow and it seemed to me that a lot of the dialogue was immature and sophomoric.





    14. This was my first Steve Martini book, I have to admit, it was a little difficult to get past the stupid name of the author. It feels too much like a gimmick. Of course, now I'm hoping that Martini is a pen name and not the author's real name.Anyway, the book is good, but not great. I was reading a Michael Connelly Lincoln Lawyer book at the same time and it was easy to see who the better author (Connelly, in case you've never read his stuff). But this book was good and although I had determined [...]


    15. THIS SUMMARY/REVIEW WAS COPIED FROM OTHER SOURCES AND IS USED ONLY AS A REMINDER OF WHAT THE BOOK WAS ABOUT FOR MY PERSONAL INTEREST. ANY PERSONAL NOTATIONS ARE FOR MY RECOLLECTION ONLYPlot synopsis: Shenanigans in the police union have attracted the attention of an abrasive judge. He is leading a grand jury investigation into the union's finances when he is arrested for prostitution and later murder. Paul Madriani is dragged into the case as the judge's defense attorney as a favor to a friend a [...]


    16. Paul Madriani doesn't lose any sleep over judge Armando Acosta until the judge finds himself arrested for prostitution and then murder. As much as he dislikes Acosta, Madriani can't believe the charges against him. In a circuitous route, Madriani ends up defending the judge. Because of the sensitivity of the issue, all judges have recused themselves and a judge from Washington state comes, with his boots & cowboy hat, to oversee. The battle of the brains becomes a chuckling dual, but truth a [...]


    17. Steve Martini is one of the best legal thriller writers. His protagonist, Paul Madriani, is in my opinion his most interesting (and certainly his most successful) character. And The Judge is (also in my opinion) the most successful novel in the series. There is a scene in The Judge (that I will describe only as the 'Cable TV Man Scene') that is so brilliantly written, so tense and beautifully unfolding, that should you not have read Martini and should you read this one scene, you will be a fan f [...]


    18. (#4 in the Paul Madriani series) Another great courtroom drama. Another surprising and slightly disappointing ending. The judge Madriani has become to hate (Acosta) has been charged with solicitation…and then murder. Paul ends up defending the judge against the same DA who fired his lover, Lenore. There are courtroom scenes that tend to drag a little but I love how the author pulls out the element of surprise when Madiani is presenting evidence. Will be interesting to see what happens next.


    19. Not as clean as a Tourot or Grisham, but still entertaining. To me, Grisham develops a story line beautifully, and you don't have to suspend reality, with the story line being carefully constructed and developed, all very believable. In the Judge, there were a few, albeit very few, times where I felt myself feeling, "well that's not very likely". But those times weren't enough to interfere with the story, and it was still an enjoyable legal thriller.


    20. I think this might have been my first Steve Martini book. In fact,this was actually the first book I read in years that started my passion for reading. I can't remember the last book I read before this (not including college). My husband picked it out for me at the library while he was there with our children. I couldn't put it down. Steve's writing is very easy to read and follow. They are all very suspenseful.


    21. A engageing courtroom and political drama with all that goes with it: sex, drugs, corruption and egos.A good read let down a bit by how it was written. The start from the plot was very slow but once it picked up it was very engageing and hard to put down. The climax of the story was great and an interesting twist however the end of the plot was very truncated and disappointing, like the author had given up.


    22. A pesar de ser el primer libro que leo de Steve Martini. La sentí un buen libro , primeramente los personajes a pesar de que Acosta y Leonore giraban en torno a las acusaciones que se les hacia. Hasta ultimas páginas del libro se encuentran pruebas concretas. Me hubiera gustado que el caso en cual se estaba investigando fuese más morboso y cruel y que el verdadero asesino fuese más perspicaz e inteligente. Buen libro
