    "I felt like this thriller got too dark and gritty for my tastes. I did find the central mystery pretty engaging but there is violence in this book that was little too visceral for me."

    "This is a fictional tale about Washington politics. The storyline of this book is excellent. One of the best novels by Patterson. The physical book I received was quite imposing, at over 600 pages this thing is a chunk. It involves a story from the top of US politics and the Supreme Court and follows the characters. I was highly engaged while reading and recommend it."

    "I thought this was an interesting idea for a story, until I read it. The concept is someone who is honest and wants only to do the right thing, to be a good leader who helps his people. But there's a ton of right wing politics mixed in here, and the "bad guys" aren't just terrorists, but the story makes sure to cast anyone who isn't on the right as just as bad. Maybe the non-right people don't use guns, but they're still portrayed as doing things that hurt people, that lead others to untimely ends. The only true answer, according to the author, is to embrace conservatism. When I saw that was where the book was going, I started skimming. Then I returned it. Tell a story, don't preach."

    "Degree of Guilt by Richard North Patterson is a good beach read. It's not Grisham or Turow, but Patterson does capture a fascinating court drama. Inside the court the plot and characters are absorbing, it's when you're outside the courtroom that the things get out of hand. The basketball game at the end is stretching it. If you're in the mood for a some good court action, Patterson's book should satisfy you. Just don't expect too much. "
