Title: Twisted Justice (The Hunt for Justice #2)
Author: Diane Capri
Pages: 528
Year: 2016
Publisher: AugustBooks
My rating 4 out of 5 stars.
Willa Carson is the main character in this story. She is a federal judge and married to an entrepreneur who runs a 5-star restaurant in Tampa, Florida. The story is quite interesting as it deals with a Supreme Court nomination, a retired general, murder and her court caseload. The intricacies of the novel really kept me in suspense as Willa’s husband is accused

Hard, hard time finishing this book, and I only finished it because I am not a quitter, I bought the book, and I was mildly curious how it was going to end. Too much detail, way too slow, no drama, no thrill, and pretty boring. I have read far better books by Diane Capri. Not recommending this book to anyone.

Took too long to tell and so much rambling democrats versus republicans rather then plot. Very slow all filler and no content.not one of her best.

This is the second book in the Hunt for Justice Series. Judge Wilhelmina Carson lives with her husband George on Plant Key Island in Florida. As in each book of the series, Wilhelmina “Willa” Carson uses her knowledge and power as a Judge to investigate crimes. This is often against the rules, and could be considered obstruction of justice, which could impeach her from her life appointment to the bench.

Twisted Justice starts when a controversial friend of Georges is nominated by the President of

I wasn’t impressed by the first book in this series but thought I’d give the author another chance to win my interest. Sadly, she didn’t.

The event that drives the plot in this book doesn’t happen until 175 pages into this 500+ page book. That’s too late. Ninety percent of what goes before is stage setting that probably could have been done in under 100 pages because most of it merely shows us how wealthy and connected Willa and her husband are.

Many pages throughout the book are filled with Willa

The first in this series about Tampa judge Willa Carson was okay - she worked to solve a murder mystery involving her sister. In this one her husband is accused of murder. (is the next book going to be with her mother accused????) I have 2 main complaints - WAY too much repetition of basic background info from the first book - I would swear the exact same sentences were used. Then this turns into my least favorite type of book.......lots of whining and angst about a relationship. Just talk to ea ...more

Formerly George's Game - Now Twisted Justice

In Twisted Justice, a retired General is found dead just before the final vote to approve his nomination to the Supreme Court. Willa's husband, George had been campaigning hard to see that the nomination doesn't happen. When his gun is proved to be the murder weapon, George refuses to provide an alibi because he had promised to keep his meeting a secret and he is arrested for the murder. Willa hires the best lawyer around and starts to investigate on h

Usually when I go to write a review of a book, it has been rated higher than I would rank it, but this time I agree. It turned out to be better than I thought it would be. I take exception to Judge Willa smoking cigars--don't think that enhances her image any. A former General is about to be appointed as a Supreme Court Justice, but there are some objectors, and the General gets assassinated. It seems that it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Willa's husband George is accused, since it was ...more

I have read and enjoyed all of Diane Capri's Jack Reacher realated books and was happy to have a chance to read about another set of interesting characters in this book. This is not the first book in this series and I did not feel like I was missing out on anything for not having read the others that came before it. I do look forward to reading the others. The main character, Willa Carson is a tough federal judge and her husband is accused of murder in a very high stakes political scenario. Her ...more

The first thing is that the book I read was titled "Twisted Justice". The description is the same. It was not a bad book, easy to put down after a couple of chapters. I have read a couple of others by this author, but I was disappointed by the main character in the way she acted at times. I can only imagine what it would be like to have a loved one charged with murder, but to do some of the things she did and act the way she did, turned me off. I don't know how she remained a judge, except for a ...more

My first read in this series and will probably be my last. Well written and plot development was good, BUT it was actually toooo realistic about the DEALS that go down in our judicial and political arenas. Diane is a lawyer so I know she knows her "stuff", but the twists (actually a very appropriate title) as the story draws to a close reinforce my contempt for politicians in general and certain judges. No spoilers, but I was left with a very bad taste in my mouth!

Another great Judge Willa Carson mystery. Diane Capri is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. Willa and George are a well-suited couple and the way she manages to solve even tough cases (and all of the ones she solves are tough) has just the right amount of edge of your seat drama and cunning personal insight to make the story believable. I enjoyed this and will be looking for other Judge Willa Carson books to read. Not for the faint-hearted, but no graphic sex/violence either.

An interesting book about the judicial system and government workings which I found both interesting and disgusting as to how some officials handle their difficulties and disagreements. However, the story of Judge Carson and her husband's being charged with a murder was a portion of this novel which I enjoyed as she set out to find the real killer. I have read other books by this author and her writing is exceptional and would highly recommend you reading them.

Although I liked the main character, her morals, ethics and loyalty, I wasn't loving the book enough to be eager to pick it up and start reading again. Seemed to take forever to finish. Rounding off 3 1/2 stars to give it a 4.

I realize that not everyone who is guilty gets punished, but the ending didn't seem true. An anonymous phone call to the press would have possibly taken care of the guilty. and Willa's marital problems during the course of the book frustrated me to no end.

I liked this book and this character. She doesn't follow all the rules and has a quirky sense of humor. She's also very human. I think that the Tampa references helped push this book from a 3 to a near 4 for me. I will look for more books by this author. Pretty good mystery as well.

The marriage in this novel was so romanticized it was difficult to believe, but there were elements that kept this novel going. The writing, plot and movement were all compelling enough that I'll try another novel in this series. There is hope with reservations for the series.

Probably more like 3 1/2 stars. It was a good story with decent character development. I'm a little disappointed in the writing skill. Ms Capri likes to use fragmented sentences. I wouldn't complain if this was in dialogue, but I do get upset when it isn't.

I liked this book. It kept me engaged. Lots of twists and turns. It was a little disappointing that justice wasn't served.
