Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

“You learn early that you don’t get to prove your case with Boy Scouts and nuns. Yes, convicted felons will say anything to get out of jail, but they also know a lot.”

Plea bargains may grease the rails of justice, but for Jamie Brock, prosecuting criminals is not about cutting deals. In her three years as assistant DA, she’s never plea-bargained a case and vows she never will.

But when an infamous defense attorney is indicted for murder and devises a way to bring the entire justice system to a screeching halt, Jamie finds herself at a crossroads. One by one, prisoners begin rejecting deals. Prosecutors are overwhelmed, and felons start walking free on technicalities.

To break the logjam and convict her nemesis, Jamie must reevaluate every principle that has guided her young career. But she has little choice. To convict the devil, sometimes you have to cut a deal with one of his demons.

What would happen to the legal system if suddenly every defendant demanded a trial by jury? With over 90% of cases settled by plea bargain agreements, if defendants were no longer willing to work out a deal, it would literally bring the legal system to a halt. This is the scenario Randy Singer presents in his latest legal thriller, The Last Plea Bargain.

Every judge and defense attorney that works in the Milton County Judicial system knows Jamie Brock (from False Witness) does not make plea bargains. She works hard to ensure her cases go to trial. A strong victim advocate, she excels at her job, but recently her personal life has taken a downward turn. Her father is in a vegetative state and Antoine Marshall, the man who murdered her mother twelve years ago, is scheduled to be executed soon. Adding to her stress is the alluring possibility of convicting Caleb Tate (the man who represented Antoine) of murdering his wife Rikki. However, with little evidence against Caleb and the possibility of corruption within the investigation, the prospect of a conviction is uncertain. With abundant twists and turns, The Last Plea Bargain is a riveting legal drama from one of the best authors in genre.

I have been anxiously waiting for this book for the last 18 months. I first heard about it during our interview with Randy for his last book, Fatal Convictions. The consequences of criminals bogging down the justice system by refusing to plea bargain sounded like an excellent premise for a novel. As it turns out, this aspect is a relatively minor, though integral portion of a much larger story, which sets the stage for a chain of events that make this book an intense, masterful legal thriller.

Jamie Brock has spent four years as an assistant DA and she's never cut a deal. Prosecuting criminals is about giving them what they deserve, not giving them a more lenient sentence just because they plead guilty. Jamie's in the minority, but that's her conviction, and so she takes on the extra work that comes with the extra trials and prosecutions.

But she soon finds herself at a crossroads. A well-known defense attorney has been accused of murdering his supermodel wife and Jamie's handed the case. The attorney, Caleb Tate, just so happens to be the man who defended her mother's killer several years before--a killer currently on death row and about to be executed.

As Brock dives into the case headlong, the DA's office soon finds itself in trouble. To logjam the system, Tate has convinced the prisoners to reject plea bargains and take all cases to trial. The result as sheer cacophony as prosecutors find themselves overwhelmed with the 90% of cases that would have been plea bargained. Felons start walking free based on technicalities. The entire justice system grinds to a halt and the prosecution has much less time to work on prosecuting Caleb Tate.

Randy Singer's legal knowledge and writing expertise shines in The Last Plea Bargain, a concoction of courtroom drama and investigative thriller that mixes in pertinent ethical issues and several unexpected twists. And the result is absolutely brilliant. Brock, who we first met during her law school days in False Witness, is a strong protagonist whose character development isn't sacrificed to the legal themes.

I have to say that I enjoyed reading Randy Singer's latest novel. Well developed characters, good plot, interesting story. Mr. Singer's books may not be as popular in the mainstream as those like Grisham, Baldacci, etc. but in my opinion the quality is just as good.

Randy Singer has consistently proven to be one of the best legal thriller writers in the market today. His books have always been full of great characters and twists, and had plots that would rival John Grisham in their legal complexity. Unfortunately, THE LAST PLEA BARGAIN failed to grab my interest. Singer has the plot going in several directions, and none of the story lines feel like the main plot of the novel, This is a book filled with subplots. No storyline stands out and lets the reader grab on. Only at the end do all of the story lines fall in line and mesh, but by then, it was too late.

Many years ago, Antoine Marshall was convicted of murdering Jamie Brock's mother. Marshall gets a last minute stay, and as a prosecuter, Jamie is furious. Caleb Tate, a famous defense attorney who defended Antoine Marshall, is accused of murdering his reformed show girl wife. Mason James, a lawyer with a felony record, will do anything to prove Marshall's innocence. Tate claims he has evidence that Jamie's father was a crooked lawyer.

Is this novel about Jamie trying to prove Tate killed his wife? Is it about Mason James saving Antoine Marshall from the electric chair? Is it about Jamie Brock finding out who really killed her mom? As I approached the end, I didn't know. Singer also throws in another subplot about the prisoners in Atlanta jails collaborating to put a halt to the court system, and this plot line deserved more than second teir status. As a reader, I was thinking that it was either outlandish and unrealistic, or incredibly unique and deserving of more from Singer.

This was my least favorite Singer novel, and I'm struggling to pinpoint why. I guess its just that for the first two thirds of the book, I really don't know what I, as a reader, should be rooting for.
