The story begins in a courtroom where justice can be manipulated. Annie Laird has been called for jury duty in a trial against a Mafia leader. The “Teacher” is told to make sure the jury brings a not guilty verdict. He focuses on Annie. He threatens her life and that of her young son; if she does not convince the jury to vote not guilty he will kill Oliver. She seeks help from the judge only to discover he cannot offer help. The ”Teacher” forms an obsession to Annie. No matter how the trial ends, he can never let her go. Annie has no one to turn to she must solve this problem herself.
This is one of the best audio books I’ve ever listened to, and I’ve listened to many. The story is read by both male and female. All audio books should be read this way. It adds depth and realism to the story. The plot of The Juror is riveting. The description of Annie is vivid. I could see her in front of me. My husband and I often listen to audio books while traveling. Too often we lose focus and have to listen to a disc more than once. Not so with The Juror. From the moment we began listening we were drawn into the story. My husband made me promise not to listen to the last disc without him.
