Read full description of the books:
Circuit Breaker is a sequel to Circuit. I haven't read Circuit and while the events in Circuit Breaker follow on from the earlier book and some characters carry over, Circuit Breaker is effectively a stand alone story. This space opera is set in the near future, in an American colony on Mars - the story is a legal/political thriller with a strong hint of the 1770s. Who gets to decide the future of Mars? The plot seems inspired by the conflict between Americans and their colonial masters in London, though played out in a non-military way.
Cabot Huntingdon is the judge appointed to the new 15th Circuit Court (in space) which is the battleground for conflict between the space colonists and Earthside interests. This is a battle between movers and shakers, people used to getting their own way, for whom the law is both an irritating obstacle and a useful tool as dictated by circumstance. The characters are very clearly drawn, almost to the point of characture, and there is no difficulty in following the large cast. There is a balanced mix of law, politics, action and personal dramas, that would qualify the author as a script writer for Scandal or similar TV series.
On one hand this book can be seen as a retelling of history in a new setting and on the other it can be seen as a cynical view of the current state of American politics. But the main focus is on the judge and his clerk / lover. Think of this as a pot-boiler in a slightly exotic setting.
(I notice that there is a third book in this series Final Circuit)
