The Whistler

A Novel

(1)
NO. 1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • A high-stakes thrill ride through the darkest corners of Florida, from the author hailed as "the best thriller writer alive" by Ken Follett

We expect our judges to be honest and wise. Their integrity is the bedrock of the entire judicial system. We trust them to ensure fair trials, to protect the rights of all litigants, to punish those who do wrong, and to oversee the flow of justice. But what happens when a judge bends the law or takes a bribe?

Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. It is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct. After nine years with the Board, she knows that most problems are caused by incompetence, not corruption.

But a corruption case eventually crosses her desk. A previously disbarred lawyer is back in business, and he claims to know of a Florida judge who has stolen more money than all other crooked judges combined. And not just crooked judges in Florida. All judges, from all states, and throughout United States history. And now he wants to put a stop to it. His only client is a person who knows the truth and wants to blow the whistle and collect millions under Florida law. When the case is assigned to Lacy, she immediately suspects that this one could be dangerous. Dangerous is one thing. Deadly is something else.

Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Die Geschichten und Texte sind unbeschreiblich, Atem beraubend, sozialkritisch. Einfach ein Muss! Aber Achtung: die verwendete (englische) Sprache verlangt wirklich gute Englischkenntnisse. Und auch so ...
