    Must read!! No one does space law better than Craig Martelle. You get the problem, the nitty gritty of the problem and then you get Magistrate Rivka, who goes all out to find and deal with the perpetrator/s. Lots of fast paced action, death and space jumping that pulls the reader in, right to the very end. If you haven’t checked out any other books in the Kurtherian Universe by Craig Martelle, I suggest you do!They are all as equally good and you won’t be disappointed.

    The Art of Smuggling: (Judge, Jury, & Executioner Book 7) - a review by Rosemary Kenny Well who would have believed it? Queen Bitch Bethany Anne's Magistrate and barrister, Rivka acting as an art assessor across the Federation's colonies, in hot pursuit of a team of art thieves - one of whom is an 'inside trader' or traitor, in Craig Martelle and Michael Anderle's 7th exciting novel in the Judge, Jury and Executioner series, based in the Kurtherian Universe, the curiously named The Art of Smuggli The Art of Smuggling: (Judge, Jury, & Executioner Book 7) - a review by Rosemary Kenny Well who would have believed it? Queen Bitch Bethany Anne's Magistrate and barrister, Rivka acting as an art assessor across the Federation's colonies, in hot pursuit of a team of art thieves - one of whom is an 'inside trader' or traitor, in Craig Martelle and Michael Anderle's 7th exciting novel in the Judge, Jury and Executioner series, based in the Kurtherian Universe, the curiously named The Art of Smuggling: A Space Opera Adventure Legal Thriller. Accompanied by her Team and their various animal companions and frequently entertained by ship's AI Ankh, with his many weird and wonderful quips and epithets, Rivka has to overcome many challenges, as she hotly pursues the art smugglers who know she's coming and are quick off the mark, to keep one step ahead of the Law she'll enforce without fear or favour! A standalone novel that is the superb culmination of the series so far, The Art of Smuggling has links to the Bad Company series and similarly has plenty of action, engaging, well-developed characters, snark and sometimes conflicting attitudes and much more, all combined in an interesting and different storyline which keeps the pace going at almost break-neck speed, to a satisfying and thrilling conclusion that could blow your socks off, or make your hair curl. Try it for yourself by grabbing a copy today - if you're not already a fan of Craig Martelle and Michael Anderle you soon will be - guaranteed! I purchased this book through the Kindle Unlimited programme and am pleased to recommend it highly to fans of space-opera, strong female lead characters, team-based interaction and a 'proper' finish (ie not a cliffhanger to make you have to buy the next in series) - what's not to like!?!!

    He did it again! Love this series. It's my favorite to, Mr Martelle. I enjoy the characters and they ARE characters! Good plots. I worked as a property and claims adjuster. As far as property claims go the stated value, whether Actual cash value (depreciation applies) or replacement value...is paid in the event of a total loss. As far as art heists go, the theft of many priceless art works from the Isabella Gardner museum in Boston was the most disastrous. None of the art has ever been found and He did it again!

Lucki!y, I got to your the museum before the heist. Anyway, I love this series and it's somewhat unique concept of law and punishment.

    The rich robbing the rich? Another fantastic tale about Rivka and her friends. I’m not sure how many different races and mannerisms can be included, but it’s like a whirlwind tour of the universe! The inventiveness for each race’s idiosyncrasies is amazing, and I delight in reading about them all. So many mysteries and unanswered questions for Rivka. We see the characters evolving and it’s fascinating. They are being challenged and taken out of comfort zones. Bring on book 8!

    Rivka at her Best! I am enjoying this series every chance I get. This new installment has Rivja & the gang assessing prices on artwork; then trying to understand how the insurance company paid what it did. This investigation brings great insights; & new family members too! Rivka, The Queen's Barrister, is one of my favorite characters! Hope there will be more to read about "The Magistrate".

    Another great story. Trivia and company find themselves investigating a smuggling ring. They get the running and bleeding done early, and then follow the clues all over the Universe. Longer than most books in this series, every bit of it was fascinating.I can barely wait for the next one.

    Worth reading... Despite this being quite a long series it still manages to entertain. The main characters continue to grow, forever bouncing from n’ere-do-well to n’ere-do-well. The cases (missions) they find themselves on, inevitably require biblical amounts of applied restructuring - be that of person or property. All of which comprises a greatly entertaining opera.

    Love It I enjoyed this book and look forward to more with Rivka and her Team. I especially like when Ankh is part of the story, I think he is a cool character that gives me a good chuckle with his no nonsense personality. Jay also seems to be coming into her own, she has grown so much since her first appearance. Keep them coming, please.

    Another really great story I have no idea why I started this series, probably because I like author(s) but no matter. I know why I read this one. Rivka and her story are addicting, like the worst drug. I've been hooked since book 1. The Magistrate and her story are like her crew and her fleet - growing bigger and better every new story. Bring on the next book and hurry! Another really great story I have no idea why I started this series, probably because I like author(s) but no matter. I know why I read this one.

    Rivka swimming in the shadow The way Craig pictured Rivka and team in dealing with art robbery is uncomfortably close to reality, especially here in Bali, Indonesia. The president tried to squeeze "the shadow economy" into light using tax amnesty, but the shadow flow still as healthy as usual. Oh well....

    Rivka Rules... Or How to pickup aliens and other critters And another peaceful case. Rivka is tasked with solving a series of Art thefts and stopping the perpetrators. An inside job but who’s the insider? Search without destroying too much. Another great read.

    Love Rivka! Another great book in the series. Rivka and her growing team continue to entertain and their missions (cases :-) are interesting and enjoyable. Wombat, cat and alien dog, the antics of the pets alone keep my ongoing interest!

    A mighty fine read. Another great romp with Magistrate Rivka. Art work that could be in museums today and adjustments to the crew all combine to another mighty fine read. As usual, highly recommended.

    Fine story As always Craig spins a good tale. Rivka and her motley crew go after thieves and smugglers and an anything but simple case. Lots of twists and turns but Rivka figures it out in the end plus they gain a dog and another crew member.

    Book 7 - deserves 7 stars Each rivka tale just keeps getting better - except for (spoiler) the exploding head bit right as I was about to eat dinner. Prob could have done without that.

    Apparently smuggling artwork is something that continues no matter how much time has passed. Rivka and her group are instructed to find out just what is going on, get the artwork back if they can and bring the person or persons responsible for the thefts to justice. The seriousness is shown when the Wyatt Earp is chasing a ship that probably belongs to the thieves/smugglers and that crew decides to blow up the ship rather than be caught. Obviously something major is going on. The actual thefts th Apparently smuggling artwork is something that continues no matter how much time has passed.

The seriousness is shown when the Wyatt Earp is chasing a ship that probably belongs to the thieves/smugglers and that crew decides to blow up the ship rather than be caught. Obviously something major is going on. The actual thefts themselves seem to have been carried out in a nearly impossible way. There's also the usual being-shot-at experience for Rivka and her crew and there's an insurance adjuster they have to deal with. Part of the book deals with what is going on with Jay and what happens to her on one of the planets. It's really neat and I look forward ot how she will be in future stories. There's also yet another animal added to their group, Ankh has to run away from something and what happens to the person behind all the thefts is quite unexpected. Another really good book in this series.

    Good read Martell has really grown as a writer. He’s learned how to prep you, with a character growth, without giving it away immediately. You’re always looking through the writing to see where he’s going. And sometimes, he can really fool you. I appreciate being just confused enough that I can’t predict what’s going on. He could do a little better using pronouns at times to describe scenes and scenarios. It can be very confusing with limited pronoun use.

    Total entertainment No spoilers... That’s it really, all you need to know. Ok, well it’s funny where it needs to be and isn’t when it shouldn’t be. Aren’t my five stars enough? Well then just do the “Look inside” thingy and decide for yourself. I have the next book in the series I need to be reading.
