About the Author

Andrew Gross was born in 1952 in New York City. He grew up in Manhattan and attended the Barnard School for Boys. Both his father and grandfather were successful clothing manufacturers; they ran the Leslie Fay Companies. Gross received a degree in English from Middlebury College in 1974. In 1982, mostrar mais he received a Masters in Business from Columbia University. He attended the Writers Program at the University of Iowa. The draft of his first book Hydra, a political thriller, was completed in 1998. After dozens of rejections from agents and ultimately publishers he received a phone call from James Patterson. Gross met with Patterson and discussed the early concepts for what ultimately became the Women's Murder Club series. Gross worked with Patterson on several books in this series, including Second Chance and Third Degree, both of which were bestsellers. Then, they branched out on different themes together, co-authoring the bestsellers, The Jester, Lifeguard, and Judge and Jury. In pursuing his solo career, Gross wrote such works as The Blue Zone, which debuted on the New York Times bestseller list in the United States. A year later, It was followed up by The Dark Tide ( 2007), which was nominated for Thriller of the Year by the International Thriller Writers Association. The Dark Tide featured the Gross fictional detective Ty Hauck of Greenwich, Connecticut, who became the lead character in his corruption and political conspiracy-based bestsellers Don't Look Twice and Reckless. His titles 12 Seconds and Everything to Lose also made the New York Times bestseller list. The One Man was published in August 2016. His latest bestseller is The Saboteur.

This novel gets high marks for one thing, the extreme tension that builds when the reader wonders which of the motley group of intended escapees is going to come through alive, if any. There are four things that are hard to believe in this plot-1. that the Germans did not know the significance of this scientist. 2. The incredulous way in which Blum finds the professor in the camp. 3. finding his sister that he thought was dead in the camp 4. the escape itself even though the Germans seemed to know all about it. At.the end, the atomic bomb build-up is treated almost as though it were insignIficant, and the genius chess player marries the sister, more out of pity than love it is implied.… (mais)

Judge & Jury is more violent than some of Patterson's other books. The plot is less believable than even some of Patterson's other thrillers. But is was a fast read and overall and ok book

Good story but heavy on Norwegian and German towns and names, making it harder to follow. My least favorite by this author
