A professor of science history recounts his disturbing experience on the jury of a murder trial. His intelligent, well-observed memoir raises questions about the personalities, politics, and issues surrounding the administration of justice through the jury system. Burnett reads with a thick and awkward tongue, but with a nice sense of drama. His oral interpretation of his fellow jurors possesses the authenticity of the eyewitness. Further, as author and narrator, he superbly parses complex ideas. Altogether absorbing and thought-provoking. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
