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.

Good book. Antonelli does it again.

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.

On the surface this story appears to be about another Hollywood murder. The plot twists in the end, the story within in a story leaves the reader wondering after all: who done it? Probably should have given 5 stars but most of the story didn't deserve more than 4 in my humble opinion.
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.
Didn't use the audio version, but read the book. Buffa is the most under appreciated modern legal suspense thriller author.

This author is not as well know as Grisham, but he writes just as well. Great courtroom drama
Keeps you guessing even after you finish reading it. Good beach read.
I very much enjoyed this mystery within a mystery.
I didn't realize this was a series but it completely stands on it's own and is a very enjoyable read. I really liked all the insights and the story itself kept me reading "just one more chapter"...
Not as good as some of the other by this author... so far my least favorite.

“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
