Objection!: How High-Priced Defense Attorneys, Celebrity Defendants, and a 24/7 Media Have Hijacked Our Criminal Justice System
by Nancy Grace
Read: Dec. 31, 2007 – Jan. 3, 2008
Challenge: No challenge; personal read
First Line: ” ‘I was just doing my job.’ That’s the tired excuse offered up by every defense attorney whenever they’re asked how they do what they do — how they pull the wool over jurors’ eyes to make sure the repeat offender they’re defending walks free.”
Nancy Grace … you either love her or hate her. The same will go for her book; you will either love or hate it. Personally, I could have done without reading it. She spent a lot of time going over the same thing, really pounding it into the reader. Anyone who has seen her on television knows that she is very opinionated, her book is very much the same as her show. Although I usually watch her show when a big case is going on (Scott Peterson, Michael Jackson, Natalee Holloway, etc.) I probably could have skipped the book because it was slightly disappointing. I only recommend this book if you are a die hard Grace fan.
