Long estranged from her blue-blooded New England family, attorney Caroline Masters is summoned home to defend her niece against charges of murder. Police found 22-year-old Brett Allen blood-splattered and incoherent near the scene of the crime; the weapon covered with her fingerprints.

Caroline has doubts of her own about Brett's innocence. But as the sensational trial heats up, she'll find disturbing inconsistencies in the testimony of the prosecution's star witness, and find herself facing some of the toughest challenges of her life and career--from trusting her former lover, state prosecutor Jackson Watts, to risking the federal judgeship she's worked her whole life for, to exposing a dark family secret that could save her niece, or destroy them both . . .

From the Paperback edition.

About Richard North Patterson

Richard North Patterson - Final Judgment

RICHARD NORTH PATTERSON’s thirteen novels include eight consecutive international bestsellers, all greeted by critical acclaim–for example, comparing his Protect and Defend to such novels as Allen Drury’s Advise and Consent and Gore Vidal’s Lincoln. Formerly a trial lawyer, Patterson served as the SEC’s liaison to the Watergate special prosecutor and is now on the boards of several Washington-based advocacy groups dealing with gun violence, political reform, and reproductive rights. He lives on Martha’s Vineyard.


"Dazzling . . .the pages almost seem to turn themselves. . . . The plot culminates in a classic courtroom confrontation."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"The novel builds to several breathtaking surprises."

"Absorbing . . . A wrenching thriller . . . Patterson brings us slowly and with consummate skill into a story that winds this way, then that, before coming to a fully satisfying halt . . . One of those books you race to finish even though you don't want it to end . . . A great read."
--New York Daily News
