The Juror by George Dawes Green
Annie Laird is Juror 224. A sculptor with a career going nowhere. A single mother struggling to raise a son. A good citizen who has been summoned to what looks like a rountine tour of civic duty. But the trial she is called to serve on is no ordinary trial. It is a mob trial, whose outcome has been meticulously orchestrated by a man of insidious power and deadly precision. A man who lives by the teachings of Lao Tsu…whose magnetism is irresistible…whose mind is as brilliant as it is twisted. He is know to some as the Teacher, and he’s set his sights on Annie Laird.
Pulled into the most chilling depths of the criminal underworld, Annie will be seduced by double-edged promises, stalked by the spector of terror, then, finally, driven to a shocking decision by the most basic motivation a woman can know. The Juror is a tour de force of crime and obsession, evil and innocence — a story that taps into fears so primal they linger long after the last page has been read.
