Roundtable Reviews features little more than book reviews and book news. We don't just stick to one genre. We have varying tastes and may be after a heartwarming romance one day, a new adult novel the next, and a creepy horror the day after that. Our book reviews always take one thought into consideration -- Would I pay the asking price for this book?

are determined to see that justice is done even though they are
putting their own lives on the line.

this latest legal thriller from Robert Tanenbaum one of his more
captivating novels. One of the best known trial lawyers in the
