The One-Eyed Judge: A Novel

'“Ponsor successfully explores both the inner workings of the federal court system and widower Norcross’ struggle to open himself again to the vulnerability of being a husband and father. . . . Excellent . . . Compelling . . . A great example of a small press series that could develop a strong following with word-of-mouth support.” —Booklist “I loved it. The books that keep me enthralled and entertained are few and far between, and [The One-Eyed Judge] was one of them.” —Elinor Lipman, New York Times–bestselling author of On Turpentine Lane “Here again, as in The Hanging Judge, Ponsor brings his rare combination of experience on the bench and flair for storytelling to a timely topic.” —Joseph J. Ellis, National Book Award–winning author of The Quartet “A gripping novel with a propulsive thrust. The characters live and breathe, the plot tugs you along willy-nilly, and the writing is crisp and compelling. . . . All this Judge Ponsor accomplishes with tact and aplomb, and the reader will be thankful for the breathtaking ride.” —Massachusetts Lawyers WeeklyPraise for The Hanging Judge “The Hanging Judge is that rarity; a story that grips the reader even as it teaches some fine points of criminal procedure.” —The Washington Post “[A] gripping legal thriller . . . Compelling.” —Booklist “There are plenty of surprises to keep readers turning pages. Ponsor gives readers a unique look into the workings of a courtroom.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review “That rare gem: a crackling court procedural with authentic characters and beautiful prose.” —Anita Shreve, bestselling author of The Pilot’s Wife “A page-turning mystery full of romance and humor, which takes us inside the fraught and rather secretive world of a judge’s chambers.” —Tracy Kidder, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Mountains Beyond Mountains “A compelling tale, with a cast of vividly drawn characters and a plot that twists and turns—it entertains, as a good novel should, but even better, it also informs, as only the best ones do.” —Jonathan Harr, bestselling author of A Civil Action “Novels have shown us what it’s like to be a juror, an attorney, even the defendant, but this is the first I’ve read that puts us up on the bench—a knowing, nuanced portrait of a judge and the often imperfect system he watches over.” —Joseph Kanon, bestselling author of Leaving Berlin'
