    1 thought on “Wasted Justice”

    1. Second time reading this book.First time, bought this book April, 2014 and liked it. Judge Willa Carson is interesting characters, but she is surrounded with characters that can keep secrets. Innocent woman in prison for murder she didn't commit. Parts of story dragged on and on, got confusing in parts.

    2. "Oh, what a tangled web we weave." I enjoyed reading a story that was like riding on a roller coaster and never being sure of anything or where you might get off. A well thought out first person novel, written in a way that was not appalling from rancid descriptions or bad language. I was on the journey with her as she obligated herself to find out what no one else seemed to wonder about. Why didn't they? It was a twisted tale of young people wanting to forget publicly, but not in their hearts w [...]

    3. Secrets can kill. Diane Capri has used her skills as a writer and lawyer to create a mystery based on politics, relationships, secrets, lies and deceit. She demonstrates how these attributes can be more lethal than any weapon a killer can possibly use. The hero of Wasted Justice, Judge Wilhelmina Carson (Willa), is a cigar-smoking, no-nonsense woman not to be messed with. Put her up to a challenge and she'll take it.Billie Jo was convicted of murdering her husband, Trey, 30 years ago. Between Wi [...]

    4. I've read and enjoyed other books in this series. This one is well-written as far as structure, plotting, character development, and wording are concerned. I remained fairly interested until about 75% of the way through, when it just became tedious and too detailed to keep my interest. I just skip-read the rest of it quickly in order to start reading something more interesting.

    5. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, as well as the entire series by this author. Good characters and a well paced plot makes this book highly entertaining.

    6. Another good read from Diane Capri and her very unconventional US District judge. Some parts were a bit tedious, but it still warrants four stars.

    7. Disclosure: I received a free review copy of this novel through Story Cartel, in exchange for a review. The review did not have to be positive, simply honest.That being said, though, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It kept me engaged throughout. The first-person perspective doesn't hinder the overall view of the book, as one might think it would. You can feel the protagonist's inner struggles, as well as see the external ones.I can't quite decide if the "whodunnit?" question can be determined t [...]

    8. Willa Carson, the novel’s heroine, is a gin and tonic drinking, cigar smoking, Mercedes driving, card carrying WASP. She’s also a federal judge with a conscious, and so when she discovers that an innocent—and dying—woman has been in prison for thirty years for killing her drunkard of a husband, she knows she has to help.The hard nosed Willa succeeds, but the happy-ever-after doesn’t go as planned . The killer strikes again, and Willa has to go back to the case to find out what really h [...]

    9. Another great read by Diane Capri regarding Judge Willa Carson and her determination to free a woman wrongly accused of murder who has spent thirty years in prison. Just when you think there can be nothing left in this story, another murder takes place with many twists and turns going all the way back to the Woodstock era of free love and wonderment. The Florida scenery descriptions make one clearly visualize the areas. I recommend this book to all mystery readers and I look forward to reading m [...]


    11. Wasted Justice is a well-written story about a federal judge who becomes embroiled in a quest to free a seemingly wrongly-convicted murderer. However, the book is really about what happens after the parole hearing. I loved the characters--well-rounded and filled with both good and bad characteristics, as most people are. Because I am not a lawyer, the explanations about the legal procedures seemed a bit long and the trial that the judge is involved in seemed to interrupt the story. But my overal [...]

    12. A legal procedural murder mystery. A case spanning decades lands in Judge Willa Carson's lap when she's asked to help free an innocent woman from prison. She is exonerated, but the celebration is short-lived. Willa has her hands full trying to find the original killer and figuring out why more bodies are turning up dead. This was an excellent book, concisely and well written, with superbly mastered plots and sub-plots, well-drawn characters and a colorful backdrop in sunny Florida. It kept me gu [...]

    13. I did not think that this book was as good as the first Diane Capri--Judge Willa book that I read. I can see how the Chief Judge might fault her for spending so much time investigating. The little quirk of her smoking the occasional cigar could be lost, I think. Nowadays, people are more health conscious than they used to be, and even if she doesn't do it in public, she is still smoking. I didn't find the characters to be very sympathetic, either.

    14. This was just okay for me. It was a good story, very well-written and proofed. It kept my interest but it didn't grab me and I didn't feel a connection with the characters. There were some good twists but overall it was not all that suspenseful. It was interesting to read all the references to Tampa, FL which is near where I grew up. Clearly the author knows the area well and did her research. (I received this book free from Story Cartel in exchange for writing an honest review.)

    15. Wills finds herself persuaded to get involved in a cold case that borders on jeopardizing her judgeship and will bring down the ire of powerful movers and shakers.A story of justice thirty years past due, but with tragic results.There are lessons to be learned on accepting others choices and even a glimpse of Woodstock. Great character development, although more bad guys then good.

    16. Brilliant, as always! I can never put Diane Capri's books down once I start reading them - really must give up work to read more :)Thoroughly enjoyed reading the next installment in Judge Willa Carson's life, and following all the twists and turns in the story. Great read, and looking forward to the next one!

    17. Another great thriller by this author - so glad I discovered her! This is a Judge Willa Carson story, taking place in Tampa. Willa is asked to help get Billie Jo Steam released from prison where she has spent the last 30 years for a murder she did not commit. Many twists and turns before the final page.

    18. I commented in reviewing Secret Justice that Diane Capri had hit her stride in The Willa Carson novels. This book is the best of her Willa Carson novels so far. An even stronger storyline coupled with her usual strong characters & settings made this a can't put down read! No spoilers here, buy the book, read the book & love the book!

    19. Story immediately drew me in, feel connected to a number of the characters, sense the suspense building, multiple murders, multiple murderers, satisfactory ending. A bit slow in the middle. But it picked up again and had a great ending.Review copy from Story Cartel for honest review.

    20. The first part of this book was a quick read, then it bogged down. It became hard to stay involved with the story, as you could guess what was going on, but it took forever to get there. I think too much dialogue and added twists that didn't have any effect on the main story.

    21. Found myself aggravated that Willa's "mom" talked her into this case against her better judgement. Kate was able to do this because Willa felt she owed Kate so much. This bothered me a great deal.

    22. Somewhat pedestrian. Sometimes difficult to follow. I have read other books by this author and in this series but this novel left me flat

    23. Simply amazing. Could. Not. Put. This. Down. I really enjoy this series, and Judge Willa is one of my all time favorite characters.

    24. The Hunt is GoodThis is a good and easy read. The story brings you in and paints a detailed story while you turn each page to arrive with Willa at the conclusion.
