Jury of One - Murder Mystery Book
Jury of One Murder Mystery Book, published April 4, 2023 is a legal thriller set in the South Carolina lowcountry, it deals with two of my favorite themes: moral choice and conflicted loyalties.
"Jury of One keeps readers on their toes to the very end--and then delivers an upending revelation so shocking as to demand a second reading."
—Jonathan Haupt, coeditor, Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy
"In Jury of One, John Warley takes on the ultimate moral dilemma: a judge in a small Southern town, a decent and highly respected man of honor, is torn between doing what is right and doing what is just. His decision will not only affect the lives of others but also change the kind of person he sees each time he looks into a mirror. This fast-paced, skillfully rendered courtroom drama is filled with all-too-human characters who speak to the struggles all of us face in the age-old battle between right and wrong, justice and injustice."
—Cassandra King, author of Tell Me a Story: My Life with Pat Conroy
