Review: The Hanging Judge

The Hanging Judge The Hanging Judge by Michael Ponsor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story, written by a real life judge, has enough court room drama to satisfy John Grisham fans and enough story for the rest of us.

Two people were killed in a drive by shooting in Massachusetts, one a Hispanic drug dealer and the other a nurse at a nearby clinic. The state of Massachusetts doesn't have the death penalty and since they want to pursue this line, the trial is shifted into the federal court.

The story has a very authentic feel and you find yourself turning pages quickly and hanging onto every word. As an aside throughout, we hear the story of two men who were executed in the early 1800's and in 1984 were exonerated. This really does make you think and wonder how many innocent people have been executed.

An excellent read and I am looking forward to another book from this author.
