Legal Thriller Done Right

"The Intern" by Michele Campbell is a spine-tingling, thought-provoking legal thriller that will keep you at the edge of your seat from beginning to end. If reading could be a full-time job, delving into well-crafted thrillers like this one would make it a dream come true. Michele Campbell has masterfully woven a gripping narrative that's impossible to put down, and I owe my discovery of this gem to NetGalley, which introduced me to the talented author.

My journey through this enthralling tale was made even more immersive by the outstanding narration in the audiobook version. The skillful narrator breathed life into the two main characters, making them not just voices but individuals we genuinely care about. It's a testament to the audiobook's quality that I couldn't stop listening, driven by an insatiable desire to uncover the mysteries and secrets lurking in every corner of the story.

Campbell's genius lies in her ability to balance character development and plot pacing flawlessly. The heart of the novel beats strongly through its main protagonists, Madison Rivera and Judge Kathryn Conroy. Madison, a determined Harvard Law student, lands her dream summer internship working for the esteemed Judge Conroy. However, her dreams collide with harsh reality when her brother, Danny, is arrested on federal drug charges, and Judge Conroy is assigned to his case. The weight of Madison's ambitions and familial loyalty intertwine as she endeavors to help her brother and unveil the truth behind his vehement claims of innocence. Madison's character arc is a compelling exploration of the relentless pursuit of justice and the sacrifices one must make in that pursuit.

Kathryn Conroy's perspective, on the other hand, offers readers a glimpse into her dark past, marked by poverty, adversity, and the difficult choices she made to rise to her esteemed position. It's a testament to Campbell's storytelling prowess that Kathryn's character is just as engaging and relatable as Madison's. The contrast and synergy between these two characters drive the narrative forward, creating a mesmerizing dynamic.

"The Intern" doesn't rely on implausible plot twists or senseless explanations to maintain its intrigue. Instead, it weaves a web of revelations that are both shocking and entirely plausible within the context of the story. The author ensures that every twist and turn is rooted in the characters' motivations and actions, resulting in a deeply satisfying and well-executed conclusion.

In conclusion, Michele Campbell's "The Intern" is a remarkable legal thriller that skillfully navigates the realms of ambition, justice, and family loyalty. The dual perspectives of Madison and Kathryn provide a rich and multifaceted narrative that keeps readers engaged and invested. With a well-constructed plot, believable revelations, and a satisfying resolution, this book is a must-read for anyone who enjoys a thought-provoking mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end. Many thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for the opportunity to experience this gripping tale. ( )

Just as law student Madison Rivera has the chance to land a coveted internship with a judge she has long admired, she finds out her younger brother is in a heap of trouble. He has been arrested for dealing drugs, but claims it was set-up. Madison is skeptical of what he is saying, but his mother is sure he is innocent and pleads for Madison to help, since she knows how the law operates. He also claims that the lawyer, the cop who arrested him, and the judge who heard the case are all dirty. Madison is stunned when she discovers it’s the same judge she wants to intern for. But she is astounded when, digging into her brother’s case, she finds out that he may just be right. And then, he disappears while still in custody, and there is no record of what happened. This is the beginning of this well-crafted thriller. Told from the point of Madison and the judge in both the present day and past, readers gradually learn about these two strong female protagonists, and what drove them to be the women they became. Compelled by forces beyond their control, and pursued by the mob, these two women come to trust each other, because there is no one else. Tightly written, complex in content, and intriguing throughout, once you start this suspense thriller, you won’t want to stop. ( )

I'm not generally one for legal thrillers but this one was surprisingly well done! Told from two alternating perspectives, The Intern follows Madison, a young Harvard law student, and Judge Kathryn Conroy. When Madison's younger brother is locked up for a serious crime he did not commit their mother begs her to try to find out more about his case with her connections. Conveniently, the judge who sentenced her brother is also an adjunct professor at Harvard and Madison applies for an internship with her. What she uncovers leads her to believe her brother wasn't lying and that he really was framed. Judge Conroy isn't as squeaky clean as everyone believes. She's got some big secrets to hide and wonders if Madison will be the key to getting out of the mess she's in. Fast paced and thrilling, this legal thriller has mob action, murder, and more. The ending is also very satisfying! ( )

Madison has landed the internship of a lifetime. She is going to be working with her favorite professor, Judge Kathryn Conroy. But, she has lied on her application. She just cannot tell the judge about her brother. But the deeper Madison gets into this job the more she realizes, it is not just her with secrets.

Boy! What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive! This story just keeps twisting around until you don’t know which way it will end! It is hard to describe because you just don’t want to give anything away…JUST READ IT!

I have been a fan of this author for quite a while. Her stories are always a labyrinth of turns. But don’t worry…it all comes out in the end. And this one is no different. This is a smart read…you blink, you will miss it!

Need an intricate tale of misdeeds and betrayals…THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today.

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review. ( )

Madison Rivera is at the top of her Harvard Law School class when her idol, Judge Kathryn Conroy offers her an internship. Madison accepts but is hiding a secret that she conveniently leaves off her background check. Judge Conroy has her own ulterior motive for hiring Madison, keeping her own secrets close to the vest.

This story takes us to into dark side of the legal system. Told by Madison, trying to believe in her family but trusting her mentor. In Kathryn’s turn, her younger years are exposed, carrying over to her current caseloads. Behind closed doors so many secrets are slowly brought to light. Both characters are realistic. Madison is young, idealistic, ready to make a difference. Kathryn is seasoned, hard, victim or villain? The beginning I found on the slower side, but when I got into the storyline, it moved fast. Enjoyed the character development of Kathryn, hard at first, but her edges softening. You could feel Madison’s underlying turmoil. Emotions that I didn’t expect when I started reading came out. Ending was somewhat predictable, but in no way lessened the storyline. The secondary characters are what you would expect…seedy, shady, most are unlikable. If you enjoy legal thrillers, I recommend this book. Ms. Campbell’s background and expertise comes shines thru. I’ve been a fan since It’s Always The Husband.

Thanks to NetGalley and St Martin’s Press for this ARC. This is my honest opinion. ( )
