    Goodreads Giveaway You remember those old Law Order TV shows, how they d show the lawyers leveraging, debating, and cutting deals This books takes that premise and dives much deep into the process, the people, and the locations involved It s was fascinating to learn how different and distinct the Eastern and Southern districts of New York are from each other An example of this is an aphorism used in the book in reference to the cases surrounding terrorist suspects The Eastern District gets them before the bomb goes off, the Southern gets them after Each of the sections focus on a different type of criminal sector and tells an exemplary story of a case, using a variety of perspectives lawyers, judge, juror, etc for each This book doesn t spend much time dwelling on the law, but focuses on the application of the law in a courtroom and impacts this has on the defendants, litigants, the state, and society If you re a legal thriller fan, you ll like how this book provides real world perspectives And of course, if you like true crime, this is right up your alley.

    A super interesting and detailed look into the federal court system in NYC Johnny gives you an inside look at a system we all hear about everyday but most people likely know very little about It s approachable and easy to digest, since it s mostly case studies If you re curious about the justice system but get overwhelmed by the jargon, this book is right up your alley.
