Maybe I'm using the wrong search terms, but I'm having a lot of trouble finding books written by criminal trial jurors. The ones I do find are not getting good reviews. I know that most jurors are not writers, so maybe I'm asking too much, but I'd like to read a well-written, engaging account of what it's like to be a juror and what a trial looks like from that perspective.
I don't need any more academic books about the trial process or about the role of the juror in the system; I've read a lot of those. I also don't want fiction, unless it's by someone who has actually been a criminal trial juror and is basing the book on that experience.
So, any recommendations?
