D.W. Buffa has a curious tendency to muse about human nature while talking about law, and at the same time he unfolds a story that keeps you pretty tightly wound. There is a back and forth that brings fiction back into reality by posing little questions about what you might do in the same circumstance. Gives me shivers.
ATING: 3.0
PROTAGONIST: Joseph Antonelli, defense attorney
SETTING: New York; Washington, DC

Joseph Antonelli is a defense attorney who entered into the legal field to follow his principles, not to make money. Over the course of his 30-year career, he has become very powerful and very rich. But now, in this sixth book of the series, his current case takes him back to his Harvard Law School days. One of his close friends from that time, Thomas Stern Browning, is the vice president of the U...more
I was very disappointed in this book. The author came highly recommended (so highly that despite my disappointment I will probably give him a second chance.) It seemed very over written. I'm not one to skim books, but with this one I found my eyes flashing through whole paragraphs ...and then whole pages looking for sentences that advanced the plot or significantly advanced the characters. The plot I felt was full of holes. I would have much preferred a straight forward court room "drama". Inste...more

Actually 3.5 stars. Good murder mystery eluding to things people may do to get what they want in politics. Hmmm. Fiction? I would compare Buffa's writing to that of Lee Child. Enjoyable reads but not earth shattering.

Set largely in D.C. and New York, story switches betweentwo eras -- Antonelli's law school days and the present.

But somehow, the feel of the language is, to me, as if the whole story takes place in the past.

I like Antonelli in his home setting the best (NW - as in "Prosecution," and "Defense").

Thought Buffa worked in the Chicago visit, to explore the dead woman's past, somehow to bring out his own Midwest connections.
Buffa likes to put WAY too much description in the story,,, stuff that adds nothing to the story. Plus, I kept feeling like I was in a court procedural class. Other than that, it was an okay story
Court room drama. Very well written, but excessively detailed for my taste. Author has several books out - may try one more.

I really couldn't get into a flow with this book, it's just seemed to be a bunch of run on sentences.
