Jury duty is usually a fate worse than death for most people, but for Abby Barnes, the protagonist of this 1983 novel, it offers a welcome respite from her faltering relationship with her boyfriend. Add to that a hunky college professor serving with her, and you have the makings of a good beach read. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
