THE LOCAL A Legal Thriller

by | Read by Robert Petkoff

Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Killing the judge is a fantasy that some litigants may harbor, but when one unhappy party is charged with actually doing so, the fantasy turns into a nightmare--and also a fast-moving audiobook. Delivered ably by Robert Petkoff, the novel centers on a one-judge Texas federal court in which patent lawsuits thrive, often with the aid of local lawyer James Euchre, who can charm local juries in ways out-of-town attorneys cannot. When Euchre suddenly finds himself defending a patent client who is the alleged judge killer, his idyllic existence ends. Author Joey Hartstone's book is the kind of quick listen that benefits from Petkoff's skills, particularly his nuanced delivery, which brings the Texas criminal bar and many local characters to life.
