Critical Praise

"Ponsor is a talent to watch.... THE HANGING JUDGE is that rarity:  a story that gripsthe reader even as it teaches some fine points of criminal procedure."
      — The Washington Post

That rare gem: a crackling court procedural with authentic characters and beautiful prose.”
Anita Shreve, author of THE PILOT'S WIFE

“There are plenty of surprises to keep readers turning pages. Ponsor gives readers a unique look into the workings of a courtroom. But more than that, he demonstrates a feel for how ordinary families are affected by the legal system. Ponsor’s debut would make a great movie.”
      — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
