“I am young. I am sexy. I wear Ellen Tracy and the requisite double pair of shoulder pads.” These are words the narrator uses to present the protagonist, a court reporter. In an ebullient tone, she tells the story of sixteen-year-old Justin Castle who shoots his beautiful girlfriend in a moment of despair. But then the pre-trial hearing is almost marred by the poor handling of the gun at the crime scene. One woman can save the case and she is Charley Savage, the court reporter, a woman whose attention to detail gets more than the information available to the jury. She will lead the reader to places they never expected to be and allow them to judge the characters from a fresh viewpoint. Writing Wrongs, CERTIFIED by Kristine Johnson is the first book in The Court Reporter Tell-All Series, a gripping story with a fascinating plot and a captivating setting.
It’s a story of the quest for truth, love, compassion, and justice. Told in an absorbing first person narrative, the reader is immediately pulled in by the quirky descriptions of the characters and the setting. The story is set against the backdrop of pre-digital Nevada, when the World Wide Web was just making its way into society and cellphones were still huge, cumbersome devices with limited functionalities. The tone is light and humorous and the reader finds the narrative voice intriguing and irresistible; it teases readers and leaves them delighted as they follow the story. Kristine Johnson develops the themes of marriage, love, murder, and justice with mastery. The reader has no doubt that the author has done a great deal of research for this mesmerizing story, taking readers into the workings of the court, allowing them to feel the atmosphere, and to see things from the perspective of a court reporter. Writing Wrongs, CERTIFIED will grab the reader’s interest and hold it until the very last page.
