Summary

This trial should be a slam-dunk. A faceless powerbroker has other ideas....

Small-town prosecutor Mara Brent must be tough as nails to succeed in her male-dominated profession. But she harbors a soft spot for the victims who rely on her courtroom skill, especially the wheelchair-bound rape survivor she’s known since her first day on the job. So when her friend’s unsolved case reopens with a DNA match and an arrest, she’s determined to finally bring a monster to justice.

Though the fiend is accused of dozens of similar assaults, only Mara’s case has the iron-clad evidence to put him away. But unexpected bombshells at trial threaten to muddy her black-and-white conviction into frightening shades of gray. She suspects there’s a sinister conspiracy out to torpedo the verdict...and her career.

Can the hard-nosed attorney uncover the truth before a serial rapist walks free to strike again?

Time of Justice is the first book in the pulse-pounding Mara Brent Legal Thriller Series. If you like strong heroines, pause-resisting twists, and dark suspense, then you’ll love Robin James’s edge-of-your-seat novel.

This one’s a WOW!!!!

This is the first book in the Mara Brent series. This is a spin-off of the Cass Leary series which I have not read but after listening to this book that will be my next series on my “to read list”.
This is an excellent legal thriller involving the prosecution of a 20 year old cold rape/attempted murder case. This book is very well written and the story kept me listening way past my normal time for bed! What starts out as one crime takes a turn and winds up being something else altogether. During the trial evidence is tampered with and the only people with access work in Mara’s own office.
Vivienne Leheny does a wonderful job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Terrific legal thriller!!

TIME OF JUSTICE, Book 1 in Mara Brent legal thriller series, is my first exposure to the works of author Robin James. I will listen to the novels of her Cass Leary series. This legal thriller is better than anything John Grisham has written in in the most recent twenty years. The narration by Vivienne Leheny is stellar. Very highly recommended!

Unnecessary bad language

I do not like when an author uses Christ”s name in vain. Totally unnecessary and offensive. Would have rated much higher without that. Took her other book off my wish list

Awful narrator

The story was fine but the narrator was really annoying. Wish someone else had read the book.

Segway from Cass Leary Legal Series

I've read/listened to all the available books in author's Cass Leary's Legal series love that some of those characters are threaded into this series.

I love that the Cass Leary series was from POV of Defense Lawyer and Mara Brent series is through the eyes of a Prosecutor.

Time of Justice (Mara Brent Legal Thriller Series Book 1) by Robin James is about a lawyer named Mara Brent who is a tough and brilliant prosecutor who tackles tough cases. Her latest case is an unsolved case involving a close friend of hers. Her friend was brutally raped and left for dead. Twenty years and no clue. Then they get lucky because the serial rapist struck again. This time Mara wasn't going to let him get away with it.

The negative aspect I saw was the book started slow. It was hard to get into it at first. I would've started with the rape and then jump to the present. It would've had a better impact on the reader.

What I loved about the novel was Robin James made her protagonist, Mara Brent, formidable. There were times when Mara had to struggle with her professional and personal life. She is trying to deal with betrayal. Someone is trying to stop the truth from coming out. There are a lot of twists and turns to keep you to the end. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Just Ok... 2.5 Stars

The author took many liberties. The storyline became convoluted with other side stories... perhaps these were to lead into future books into the series, but the various setups weren't organic.

I'm not sure if it was the narration or the author's writing, but I felt like I was listening to nails on chalkboard.

This one is going back.
