* some spoilers
The plot is laid out early in the book - there is a corrupt judge colluding with some thugs to skim money at an Indian casino. To expose the corruption, there are a few individuals trying to blow the whistle on the judge to collect cash under the whistle-blower statutes. The whistle-blowers submit a complaint to the agency that investigates rogue judges and an investigation begins. These facts are known early on. The problem is - that's the entire plot. There are no twists or turns it goes in a fairly straight line from corruption complaint to indictments with few surprises along the way. There is also a huge loose end as we never find out what happens to one of the characters who was falsely imprisoned for murders he did not commit. Since this character is a main focus in the prequel, the failure to tie up that loose end is irritating.
All in all - it is just an uneven effort. A disappointing novel from an author from whom we all expect better.
Too many pages describing the joy of being a single woman, no kids to care about, no meal to cook for someone else, and so on. Boring and it has nothing to do with the plot. So is the immediate family of the heroine. Still an enjoyable read, perfect for a plane trip of a few hours.
The book reminds me of reading Carl Hiaasen. It's an entertaining exposee. I'm learning a lot.
