Review:

'Compulsive... This round to Brad Meltzer - 4 stars'

Mail on Sunday



'This law graduate author brings a dynamic new voice to a new area of legal thriller territory... A fresh, sharp narrative with engaging characters and an intelligent plot - a great fiction debut that stands out among legal thrillers'

South Wales Argus



'A firecracker of a debut novel... In a plot scattered with deception, trauma and more twists than a corkscrew, The Tenth Justice singles Brad Meltzer out as the most talented legal writer since John Grisham'

Peterborough Evening Telegraph



'Meltzer's plot is well thought out, with a particularly vivid climax'

The Sunday Times



'A well-crafted, wisecracking thriller. The characters are credible and likeable and the insight into the workings of the American legal system is intriguing. This will appeal to a more twentysomething readership than Grisham's latest offerings which have - quite frankly - gone seriously off the boil. Watch out John, Brad Meltzer has just arrived'

U Magazine



'Brad Meltzer brings a dynamic new voice to the legal thriller, the first since John Grisham, in an explosive debut that will definitely change your views of this genre. With a sharp-witted dialogue and edge-of-your-seat suspense, The Tenth Justice will keep you reading into the night'

Goldlife Magazine



'Grisham had better beware, for there's a new kid on the block. In The Tenth Justice young Brad Meltzer - all of 26 - has formulated a thriller that fairly crackles, having pace, confidence and velocity-charged story-telling'

The Irish Times



'Hugely enjoyable'

Hartlepool Mail



'Sure-footed and savvy... a densely plotted thriller oozing class and intelligence... Meltzer has it in spades. Remember his name - this guy is going to be the next John Grisham and he's going to be huge'

Examiner (Ireland)



'A cracking read up there in the realms of Grisham'

Magazine (Image?)



'Hugely enjoyable'

Sunderland Echo



'Tense and pacy'

Liverpool Echo



'Sparky legal thriller'

Lancashire Evening Post



'Incorporating the complexities of the legal system of America and the compulsion of a good thriller with wit and vitality, this is a fast, exciting read'

Portsmouth News
