The original title of the book: Mistress of Justice


Taylor Lockwood spends her days working as a paralegal in one of New York's pre-eminent Wall Street law firms and her nights playing jazz piano anywhere she can.

But the rhythm of her life is disrupted when attorney Mitchell Reece asks her to find a stolen document that could cost him the multimillion dollar case he's defending... and his career as well.

Taylor signs on... only to find that as she delves deeper and deeper into what goes on behind closed doors at Hubbard, White & Willis, she uncovers more than she wants to know - including secrets damaging enough to smash careers and dangerous enough to kill for.

But who is capable of going to that extreme? With her life on the line, Taylor is about to learn the lethal answer...

'If you want thrills, Deaver is your man' Guardian

Taylor Lockwood, jazz-playing paralegal heroine of Mistress of Justice, is one of the smart, sassy heroines in whom Jeffery Deaver specialised before he invented the austere paralysed criminalist Lincoln Rhyme. Like Rune in Manhattan is My Beat, Taylor is clever, but not quite as good at things as she thinks she is--she trusts a few too many people and lets her preconceptions get in her way; Deaver has always done a nice line in the detective who gets things wrong quite a lot of the time. Taylor is brought in by Reece, a Wall Street hot-shot, to work out who has stolen a crucial document, and where they have hidden it. Along the way, she uncovers most of the dirty little secrets of the partners of the firm and finds herself having to exercise judgement about each of them; she has refused to follow her father into the law because of her music, but she finds herself caught up in justice all the same.

    Not a bad read but not one of Deever's best

  • By Clive on 16 June 2010

    I almost gave up with this as I spent 2 weeks on the first 200 pages. Deaver introduced alot of characters such that it was hard to follow, and the initial story about a missing piece of paper in a lawyers office, was not really enthralling. Please note that I review the revised version where Deaver stated he 'thrilled it up' from the original. The plot got going in the last third and I managed this in two days. I would give this book a miss, unless you are a die-hard Deaver fan, or are really interested in his early pieces, some of which (Blue Nowhere, Maidens Grave) are indeed excellent.

    I am an avid fan of Jeffery Deaver but this book is very disappointing. It was very slow starting and never really took off at all. The story seems to climax in the middle of the book and it has taken you so long to get there that you really don't want to carry on reading to find out the real ending.Although once at the end there is a surprising twist, but not a book I would recommend for the first time Deaver reader, he can do much better.
