"Paul Madriani has ample reason to suspect that he's representing a guilty man. Dr. David Crone, a respected medical researcher and principal in mapping the human genome, is charged with the murder of a young colleague: twenty-six-year-old Kalista Jordan, an African American research physician whose dismembered body was found in a nearby bay. Forensic evidence links her murder with items discovered in Crone's garage. Madriani takes Crone's case, but his defense is hindered by the secrecy surrounding Crone's current research. As the trial unfolds, a scandal from Crone's past, involving his controversial use of genetic racial profiling, is revived. The murdered woman had filed charges of sexual harassment against Crone, and taken secret documents from his files. Paul is left to try to piece together a defense while Crone and his colleagues are hiding parts of the puzzle. When a key witness for the prosecution ends up dead, leaving an incriminating note behind, Crone's acquittal at trial is all but assured. Yet Paul is left with nagging questions concerning his client, doubts that are answered with a stunning revelation and a shattering climax."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

For starters, I have no clue why the book is called "The Jury" when it has nothing to do with the title. The author telegraphed the twist at the end of the plot almost since the middle of the book. Not a very good one

All trial mumbo jumbo, boring, couldn't force myself to finish it.

This was terrible. If you can make it past the prologue's first page and a half without vomiting all over yourself congrats!
