This fifth book in the series finds Joseph Antonelli defending Stanley Roth, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, who has been accused of murdering his movie star wife, Mary Margaret Flanders (nee Marian Walsh). There were only 3 people at their home when Mary Margaret was killed: Mary Margaret, Stanley and a maid. The security system had not been breached. When the police find Mary Margaret's blood on some clothing in Stanley's laundry hamper, he is charged with murder.

This is a difficult book to review due to the author’s use of two dramatically different writing styles.

Usually books I read about Hollywood are only ok. This books was great. I loved the courtroom scenes. When I first picked it up I didnt expect much from it. But when i started reading it I loved it. I liked the characters and the dialogue. I definitely recommend this book especially if you like courtroom books.

Didn't use the audio version, but read the book. Buffa is the most under appreciated modern legal suspense thriller author.

I love this series, and I love the protagonist, Joseph Antonelli. This was was about Hollywood, probably not my favorite, but he is just a great storyteller.

“Walsh was too full of his own—how shall I put it?—posthumous importance; too convinced that he should be seen almost as much a victim as his daughter, to confine himself to the truth. He would embellish things to put himself in the best possible light.” 0 likes
