unique structure, which I love, purely as a shake-up technique. backstories of all twelve jurors, some longer than others, all of them compelling. I've just gotten to the changeover to the next large Section, giving me the "Case" the jurors are there to decide. some shocking stuff in some jurors' lives that seems ahead of its time for a 1940 British Crime novel. let's see if this can be my first 4 or 5 star novel of the new year! leaning that way, so far.
