German court thriller, not exactly a Grisham. Neither the writing nor the story will challenge anyone. But I still enjoyed it, if only for a glimpse on the German legal system. I feel I am more familiar with the US legal system than the German one, which sounds a bit sad. The characters are fine, maybe a bit shallow. Definitely not deep. The relationship between Rocco and Jarmer seems rather forced. But overall I felt the book was OK. If I come across the next one in the library I might pick it up. I definitely won't pay money for it.
