In the court of public opinion, social media reigns supreme. The ability to find untainted jurors long proven to be a futile endeavor, the nation turned to the Pure Juror System.

When Eddie was taken by the system, he thought he was doing his civic duty, not being indoctrinated into a maddening isolation that would leave him fighting for his very breath.

J159.

To ensure the perfect neutrality of a juror, the Pure Juror System was developed, whereby the system would pick jurors, and provide for their needs in an isolated environment for between three and five years. Despite the system’s efforts to keep knowledge of the calendar date from the jurors, Eddie knows he must be getting near the end of his term. However, until he sees a familiar face on a courtroom camera, and a drone drops a covert note into his walled garden, he doesn’t realise that it’s be ...more

I thought, hell, jury duty never sounded so good, but ...
When Eddie was taken by the system, he thought he was doing his civic duty, not being indoctrinated into a maddening isolation that would leave him fighting for his very breath. Excellent weekend Psychological thriller.
Could you imagine having to report for jury duty? What a drag everyone says it is. Right?
Sure there are those who feel civic duty is the stand-up thing to do so they jump on it; to each their own ~ it's jury duty.

Author – Renee Logan
Genre – Suspense, Psychological Thriller

Rating 4 stars out of 5 Posted 9/5/17
No. 58 - 2017

My impressions: cruel, unusual & unwarranted punishment, progressive liberal socialism run amuck.

Main Characters:
Eddie – J159, whiney wimp, nerdy, erratic, paranoid.
Jack – Eddie’s friend and savior.

The plot of J159 is simple but frightening. To guarantee an uncontaminated pool for juries judging major crimes citizens are involuntarily isolated in solitary

The pure juror system is designed to keep any kind of bias or if the ‘trial by peers’ mentality. If selected, you’re moved to a facility and isolated for years, on the premise that you’ll be released when your allotted time is up. Corruption runs deep, however. And jurors don’t always get what they want.

J159 was written entirely from Eddie’s point of view. With that, the author challenges themselves to get the entire story across using, essentially, one person and one setting. Kind of like the

Thrilling story!

A co-worker told me about this book and I was eager to read it. It exceeded expectations! The book was fast and easy to read and I hated when I had to put it down. It was fascinating how a character could seemingly embrace and enjoy their captivity. I hope there will be a follow up book to learn more about the Pure Juror System.
