Justice in June Review


Justice in June is the second in a series about criminal defense attorney Mary Magruder Katz following Fatal February. Mary has a lot on her plate when she finds herself defending a judge who was removed from her courtroom, accused of mishandling a number of drug cases. Judge Liz Maxwell’s stellar reputation is on the line and soon she and Mary find their own lives might be in danger.

Immediately after she picked up Judge Maxwell as a client, she added to her caseload Luis Corona of Argentina who was accused of terrorism, removed from his flight to Florida, and spirited away by the Feds. The next thing Liz knows, when she finally tracks him down, the US government is preparing to send him to Guantanamo.

Luis is the son of close friends of Liz’s boyfriend, Carlos, and his parents. The whole situation looks like it has gotten out of hand and the good relationship between the United States and Argentina is threatened. If only Liz could see her client – the Feds keep moving him around.

Then, when Carlos finds himself in a messy legal situation, Liz is not sure how well she can perform her job with one more case added to her load. After all, she takes all cases seriously and does her best to help her clients, and now she is beginning to feel like she is at the end of her rope.

Unfortunately, her personal relationships with her family and Carlos must take a backseat as she races to save her clients. With Catherine, her trusty sidekick and paralegal by her side, Liz takes on each case with humor and fortitude as she does her best for each client.

Author Barbara Levenson has written a worthy follow-up to Fatal February. Although the book is fast-paced, it is also relaxing reading and difficult to put down. The fairly short chapters and constant action keep the reader turning pages, and the light-hearted story - in spite of some heavy courtroom scenes, is a joy to read.

Her characters seem to come to life in steamy Miami which is currently experiencing its rainy season, which adds to the ambiance of the setting. The hot steamy weather is reflected in the storyline and certain relationships.

Fortunately for fans of this new series, the author is hard at work on her next Miami mystery - Outrageous October is due out soon.
