The Hanging Judge

Book 1, The Judge Norcross Novels - A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

From the author of The One-Eyed Judge: A New York Times–bestselling novel about a federal death penalty trial from the perspective of the presiding judge.

When a drive-by shooting in Holyoke, Massachusetts, claims the lives of a drug dealer and a hockey mom volunteering at an inner-city clinic, the police arrest a rival gang member. With no death penalty in Massachusetts, the US attorney shifts the double homicide out of state jurisdiction into federal court so he can seek a death sentence.

The Honorable David S. Norcross, a federal judge with only two years on the bench, now presides over the first death penalty case in the state in decades. He must referee the clash between an ambitious female prosecutor and a brilliant veteran defense attorney in a high-stress environment of community outrage, media pressure, vengeful gang members, and a romantic entanglement that threatens to capsize his trial—not to mention the most dangerous force of all: the unexpected.

Written by judge Michael Ponsor, who presided over Massachusetts’s first capital case in over fifty years, The Hanging Judge explores the controversial issue of capital punishment in a dramatic and thought-provoking way that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is “a crackling court procedural” (Anita Shreve) and “gripping legal thriller” (Booklist) perfect for fans of Scott Turow. 

Customer Reviews

The hanging judge

Very good. Glad the author did not drag out the story line.

Excellent Captivating Legal Novel

I take issue with the 1 star review by Allen. He takes pot shots a Ponsor but does not claim to have any legal experience to back up his bashing. I have been a practicing defense lawyer in State and Federal Courts for 26 years. Ponsor’s novel was absolutely realistic about tactics by the government and antics by attorneys. I could not put it down.

The way I see it,

Loved your book! Intelligently written and certainly an eyeopener in many ways.
I will recommend this book to my friends,and I sincerely hope you will continue to write. I, for one, am looking forward to your next book!
Thank you, for sharing.
My kindest regards,
Judith Quinn
