Reviews (Excerpts)

- "Docket No. 76,by Arita M.L. Bohannan is a story of sexual abuse, second chances, and the failure of the justice system. Set in and around New Orleans [...] The author brought to the forefront that the justice system does fail sometimes and I totally agree with her on that point. I do recommend this as a good pager turner. Enjoy!" - Lennette (Amazon)

- "I was completely enthralled with this suspenseful court drama based book from the first couple of pages until the end. The descriptions the author used were so detailed, I could envision every scene as if were enjoying a movie. This book is definitely a most read if you enjoy suspenseful, court drama and twist." -Amazon Customer

- "This is one of those books that you pick up and can't put down. I was so drawn in by the description of the characters, and the settings that I felt like I knew everyone or that I was there. This book also evoked emotions and I found myself tearing up several times. I also loved the twists and turns that I never was anticipating. I was sad for the story to end and I can't wait for the next book to see what other cases Sandy has thrown at her. It's a must read!" - Barbara Werner
