Book Review: Mistress of Justice, Jeffery Deaver

Mistress of Justice, Jeffery DeaverAccording to the author’s note, the edition that I read is his re-write of an earlier book by the same title. This is the second re-write that I’ve read recently, the other being by Nelson DeMille.

On first impressions, the book has a dull plot – a promissory note is missing, and Taylor Lockwood (the lead character) has been asked to find it somewhere in the law firm. The intrigue comes from the plotting around the firm, where competing factions are fighting over leadership. The stakes are high enough for Taylor to be at risk of physical attack – and she sees both senior figures and younger up-and-coming professionals risking everything to get ahead.
