Texas Attorney’s Latest Thriller Casts Light on Dangers Faced by Judges
Courtroom legend Louis E. McCarter pens fourth thriller that pits U.S. District court judge against sex traffickers.
The Judge makes you think about the safety of judges or attorneys who handle dangerous cases with little or no protection from the government.
Louis E. McCarter’s fourth legal action thriller “The Judge” starts with Matthew Tucker, the protagonist, finding an envelope tucked under the windshield wiper of his car, containing a note bearing a death threat. It’s the first for Tucker, whose court handles a case involving a person arrested for sex trafficking, money laundering, and harbouring illegal immigrants. He is to preside over a bail hearing, but despite the note, there’s no way he’ll grant bail to the accused.
Fans of legal and action thrillers will surely reflect over that part of the novel. Violence against judges, prosecutors, and district attorneys is on the rise, especially in Mexico, where local judges admit to feeling intimidated by criminal groups. Just last year, a federal judge was killed while jogging. He happened to preside over more than one potentially dangerous case yet he received no protection. He’s the sixth federal judge murdered over the last 16 years in Mexico. And in Texas, a federal judge was assassinated in his front yard and a state court judge and his wife murdered on a Sunday morning getting ready for church.
For denying bail to a dangerous defendant, Tucker does his part for society: protecting them from felons. However, it is no secret that political correctness has driven many governments to lower sentences for felons and also forced courts to hand out soft jail terms to potentially dangerous individuals.
But readers need to leave that matter to the powers in government. They should keep reading “The Judge,” where Lucy, daughter of Tucker’s live-in housekeeper, got victimized by a sex slavery ring that operates near the border. Tucker travels to Mexico to rescue Lucy with the help of Carmen Reyes, a fellow district judge.
To know what drives Tucker to risk his life just to save his housekeeper’s daughter, readers will have to buy their copy of “The Judge.”
