Maxine Justice: Galactic Attorney
Things are not going well for lawyer Maxine Justice. She’s been fired, she is behind on her rent, and her new law firm is an utter failure. She determines she must take a job in the lower courts to pay some of her bills. The plan is looking like it will work until a series of events make her even more penniless than before.
Enter a potential alien client who claims that they have a miraculous drug that can cure all of the Earth’s natural flaws. She dismisses them as crazy until at her lowest point, she realizes that even if they are crazy, she should take the case and make her money troubles go away. The question is, what will it cost her and humanity?
I wanted to read this book on the recommendation of a friend. Truth be told, I never thought I would enjoy a sci-fi book about the letter of the law, lawyers, and aliens. I was wrong. This book was fun, funny, and truly showed us that humanity, no matter how flawed, is worth saving.
The thing I appreciated the most was how Maxine Justice tried to make the world a better place, even if that meant making things dicey for herself. The world was truly against her and she fought back with every part of her being, no matter the cost. When it came down to saving people who mostly hated her, she did the right thing with courage. I was so impressed with the snarky, stubborn character. I hope I get to see this character again.
