New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder returns with an explosive new thriller about a female judge and the one personal misstep that could lead to her—and her family's—downfall. It was nothing more than a one-night stand. Juliana Brody, a judge in the Superior Court of Massachusetts, is rumored to be in consideration for the federal circuit, maybe someday the highest court in the land. At a conference in a Chicago hotel, she meets a gentle, vulnerable man and has an unforgettable night with him—something she'd never done before. They part with an explicit understanding that this must never happen again. But back home in Boston, Juliana realizes that this was no random encounter. The man from Chicago proves to have an integral role in a case she's presiding over—a sex-discrimination case that's received national attention. Juliana discovers that she's been entrapped, her night of infidelity captured on video. Strings are being pulled in high places, a terrifying unfolding conspiracy that will turn her life upside down. But soon it becomes clear that personal humiliation, even the possible destruction of her career, are the least of her concerns, as her own life and the lives of her family are put in mortal jeopardy. In the end, turning the tables on her adversaries will require her to be as ruthless as they are.

An enjoyable read.

Almost gave up on this tale until about 1/3 of the way through when the story finally became somewhat compelling enough to finish.

I liked all Fineder's book and was happy to find this one on a shelf. Sadly it turned out to be his worst. I dare to say -a total garbage. So pity.

It starts with a 'bang' and doesn't stop. This is an exciting and taunt story about a Judge who is compromised and has to extricate herself in order to save herself and family. I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Judgment" and would highly recommend it to thriller-lovers.

As a fan of Joseph Finder, I found this to be one of his better books. A thriller that holds interest until the very end. Especially timely now during the concern of Russian interference in our government.

I've sort of like one or two of this guy's novels, but this was really abysmal. Appeared to have been written by James Comey or someone similar?!
Boring, tedious, unoriginal on all levels - - more like standard CIA propaganda [I believe the author was once with the agency, BTW].
