I love this book. I listened to the audio book read beautifully by Sean Barrett. The book is written in a kind of world weary but gentle & sympathetic pathos. So much more human than the full on avenging angel Jack Reacher kind of an action story which I'm getting somewhat fed up with - For plot etc check out amazon. I'll be searching out more books from Gianrico Carofiglio.

Carofiglio just keeps getting better, as Reasonable Doubts, book number three in this series, proves. While this book certainly has the makings of a good mystery contained within the story, Carofiglio continues his tradition of giving his character top billing rather than the crime. The focus on the internal life of Guido Guerrieri is a hallmark of all of the books in this series, but there is also enough tension rising external to Guerrieri's thoughts so that everything comes together to make a ...more

Questo è quello che forse mi è piaciuto di più dei romanzi di C. sull'avvocato Guerrieri. Anche se non so perchè mi rimane sembra estranea la realtà italiana. Oramai mi sono troppo abituata a leggere autori stranieri e vivo da emarginata nel mio paese. Del resto se chiami la volante perchè ti stavano rompendo una finestra per entrare a mezzanotte e questi si inventano che non trovano l'indirizzo, non trovano il civico per farti annullare la chiamata.. e il giorno dopo quando vai fare la denuncia ...more

In linea con gli altri due libri che ho letto sulle vicende dell'avvocato Guerrieri. La lettura è piacevole, ti prende. A dispetto di una trama molto scarna, decisamente prevedibile ed in alcuni casi un po' traballante i romanzi di Carofiglio catturano l'attenzione e ti trascinano alla fine in un batter d'occhio. Una lettura veramente piacevole.
Sarà perchè l'ho letto per primo, non so dire, ma "ad occhi chiusi" continua ad essere il mio preferito tra i romanzi di Carofiglio
Kristine Brancolini
In Reasonable Doubts attorney Guido Guerrieri has been asked to represent a convicted drug dealer who claims he was framed and coerced into confessing. The case is a long-shot but Guerrieri decides to take it on despite his history with the defendant, Fabio Paolicelli, who doesn't remember meeting Guido when they were young, under violent circumstances. The plot revolves around Guerrieri's efforts to have Paolicelli acquitted, so it might be considered a legal thriller, but it's actually more of ...more

Lorsqu'un livre est le récit d'un procès et de tout ce qui l'entoure, on peut craindre que qu'il soit un peu ennuyeux. Eh bien non: même si la meilleure partie du roman se passe dans et autour de la prison et des tribunaux --ce qui se passe entre l'avocat et la très belle femme de l'accusé, au lit notamment, est rappelé avec la plus grande retenue-- et si le playdoyer final est rapporté preque in extenso, tout reste (comme l'expriment deux des personnages) parfaitement compréhensible même pour q ...more

This is Carofiglio's third book about lawyer Guido Guerrieri, and the second that I've read. It is a good mix of the lawyer's personal story and the criminal case that he's working on. In this instance, the two parts merge quickly and interestingly.

As in the first book, Involuntary Witness, Guerrieri initially doubts his client's innocence, and here he has good personal reasons for doing so. As the case becomes more and more personal, he undertakes an investigation, reminding us that he's no det
Si lascia leggere, è gradevole ma purtroppo la trama in tutti i romanzi del Guerrieri è sempre bene o male la stessa, i personaggi idem, il finale, idem, l'atmosfera idem.

Caro figlio [figlio caro], mi stai diludendo
E qui mi delude Guerrieri. E vabbene depresso che Margherita (che neppure mi stava simpaticissima: troppo -issima) lo ha mollato... per insomma... con la moglie di un cliente!!
E i personaggi ancora meno credibili che nel precedente.
E il cliente, che sembra David Bowie...
E la moglie, femme fatale, cuoca, ex modella, parte-nopea e parte-giapponese che sembra Lucy Liu...e si chiama Kawabata!! Che fantasia!

Guido Guerrieri's lover Margherita has left him for a job opportunity in New York. He's at loose ends, going through the motions in court, regretting his failings, wishing he had a child. Then a beautiful Japanese-Italian woman walks into his office, asking him to represent her husband who has been accused of drug smuggling.

They had been on vacation in Montenegro. The car was searched when they returned to Italy and 40 kilos of cocaine were found. The man maintains he knows nothing about the dru

Das erste Hörbuch “Reise in die Nacht” hat mir schon super gut gefallen. “Das Gesetz der Ehre”, spannend gelesen von Erich Räuker, ist ein weiteres Hörbuch, dem ich mit Vergnügen 5 von 5 Sternen gebe.

Diesmal verteidigt Avvocato Guerrieri einen des Drogenschmuggels verdächtigten Klienten, den er leider noch aus seiner Jugend als faschistischen Schläger kennt.

Gianrico Carofiglio erzählt über die Recherchen, welche für den Klienten wenig hilfreich ausfallen, die Gespräche mit seinen Informanten, de

Avvocato Guido Guerrieri ist zurück und sogleich hat er auch einen neuen Mandaten an der Angel, der wegen Drogenschmuggel verhaftet wurde. Doch hält sich Guerrieris Freude über diesen besagten Mandaten im Zaum: Denn es handelt sich bei ihm um Fabio Paolicelli, in seiner Jugend bekannt als gewaltbereiter, faschistischer Teenager, der der Führer einer Jugendgang in Bari gewesen war. Eines seiner Opfer war damals auch Guido Guerrieri gewesen.

PROTAGONIST: Guido Guerriero, defense attorney
SETTING: Southern Italy
SERIES: #3 of 3
RATING: 4.75

Most of us can recall someone from our childhood who was incredibly mean to us. Even as adults, we may harbor some fantasies about getting revenge on the evil-doer. But most of us aren't in the pickle that Defense Attorney Guide Guerrieri is. His childhood nemesis and source of much humiliation is Fabio Paolicelli, aka "Fabio "Rayban", who seems to have forgotten Guido and asked that he defend him a d

The third book featuring the lawyer Guido Guerrieri, living and working in Bari. Again, it is a well written fast read you can enjoy within one evening. Again, it's very difficult not to feel sympathy for the protagonist, as he is a smart, intellectual but also down-to-earth guy. His only problem is that he can't talk about his feelings, which brings some difficulties in the current case - for example falling in love with the wife of his client. The third book doesn't focus so much on the past a ...more

You can have all the verifiable evidence you like, but the 'truth' of the matter may still never be known. All you can do is tell a convincing story with the facts you have. As in a courtroom, so too in a novel. Carofiglio tells his stories from a first person perspective which makes his amiable lawyer, Guido Guerrieri, come to life on the page. We follow his philosophical meanderings as he wrestles with demons both past and present. With his lover away for an extended time on business, Guido fi ...more

Ragionevoli i miei dubbi?
Carofiglio ha uno splendido e originale modo di scrivere e io sono un grande fan della scrittura in prima persona. I due precedenti romanzi mi hanno appassionato. In questo ho trovato alcune forzature che non rendono merito della piacevolezza della scrittura e delle citazioni (formidabili): perchè costruire un personaggio complesso ed una relazione orginale con Margherita per foi farla scomparire in tre pagine senza nessuna analisi, senza elaborazione? Per far posto ai d

No joo. Koko ajan ootin, että vangitun miehen vaimo, päähenkilön hoito tai oikeastaan toisin päin, osoittautuisi pahisten puoleiseksi ja olisi kompuksessa vangitun tyypin kanssa, jotka siis melkein onnistuisivat vedättämään Guerrieriä, mutta ei ihan. Mutta ei. Kaikki oli vaan ihan sitä miltä näytti. Eipä häävi.

Bei diesem gut geschriebenen und auch gut übersetzten Buch war weniger der "Fall" interessant als vielmehr die herrlich ironische Selbstreflexion des Protagonisten. Ein Buch für kurzweilige Stunden, das einen zum Lachen bringt, die Spannung hingegen hält sich in Grenzen.

Credit to the translator for getting across the simple and unfussy style of writing. This is like an Italian version of 1930's crime noir. All the elements are there. A sympathetic hero with lady troubles, a fine looking dame, nasty villains, a seemingly hopeless cause. Unlike the American noir novels the plot of this book is simple and all the characters are well signposted and delineated. I was interested in how the avvocato pulls together his arguments and which ones he chooses, although some ...more

Really average. This was actually the English translation by Howard Curtis. It really lost in translation mainly because Curtis takes it for granted that a great joke in Italian will have the same effect if translated literally and will be understood by his English readers . Wrong. A good example was the character 'Signor Katso', every Italian would have found that extremely funny. Curtis doesn't even explain why Carofiglio has chosen that particular name. Infact I don't even know why Curtis bot ...more

Il libro l'ho divorato, bello. L'unico difetto è forse la troppa scontatezza, non tanto della bravura di Guerrieri nel risolvere il caso, ma delle vicissitudini della sua vita privata. Troppo telefonate.

Reasonable Doubts is an Italian legal novel that’s been translated into English. Guido Guerrieri is an attorney asked to defend a man accused of smuggling drugs. He shouldn’t take the case. The defendant, Fabio Paolicelli, is a known neo-Fascist thug who initially confessed to the smuggling. And Guido has a score to settle with him dating from an altercation when he was 14—he should recuse himself. However, Fabio’s beautiful Japanese wife persuades Guido to accept the case. This English translat ...more

Carofiglio understands the complexities and contradictions of the Italian legal system and has created a wonderful character in Avvocato Guerrieri.
Guido Guerreri is asked to take on the case of a boyhood nemesis, who has been sent to prison for smuggling 40 kilos of drugs into Italy from a family vacation in Montenegro. After overcoming his lifelong disdain, Avocatto Guererri decides to take the case and with the cooperation of his police friend Tancredi comes up with a credible appeal, which involves calling his client, his client's wife, and his client's former lawyer to testify. Like the earlier novels, much of the writing is about Guid ...more

I like Mr. Carofiglio's presentation of how arguments, methods, and procedures are worked around the law to make "it all" legal. Well, that is to say work to your advantage under the system. This has nothing to do with right or wrong, mind you, same as the US. Fortunately, the hero is honest. What I also like is his honest humanness, the character himself. In Reasonable Doubt he finds himself in a situation where anyone of us, I know me, are questioning our values, honesty and what is right or w ...more

E dunque alla tua vigliaccheria. Allora preferisci non pensarci, o pensare che hai desideri impossibili, e che è da adulti non pensare alle cose impossibili.” 2 likes
