    1. Great story Deeper than many legal thrillers , pretty dark, and rather depressing I really like the main character, Joe Antonelli, and his sleazy colleagues I knew the old girlfriend was going to be a pain as soon as she arrived, and I wasn t wrong Interesting portrayals of mental health institutions and patients, as well as trials, although I m not sure how realistic they all were Still, it made for a good story Through the whole book, it was obvious that everything that could go wrong would, b [...]


    2. Il finale pi triste per l avvocato Antonelli Questa volta la storia pi incentrata sulla vita privata dell avvocato Antonelli, ma l analisi dei meccanismi legali che portano a determinati giudizi sempre molto accurata e spiegata egregiamente La prosa di Buffa non mai pesante e non si perde mai in cavilli macchinosi.Il caso in questione sempre sviscerato con profonda umanit e comprensione per le persone al centro della storia non c mai solo un processo o un meccanismo legale, ma la persona, colpev [...]

    4. A decent book as far as legal thrillers goes, although not my favorite by any means At times it seems to get a bit slow and while it s not really difficult to follow, it does tend to leave me scratching my head from time to time about what kind of liberties were taken with the legal system However most of these kinds of books do that to me anyway.All in all though, it is a fun read, and while I had figured out who had been the real culprit of the story less than halfway through, I was still curi [...]


    5. This is a fictional murder mystery I was becoming discouraged wit the first 200 pages The beginning introduced Jonathan Anottelli Story dragged on By the time the story took hold it was over The long introduction to Anotelli s personal life defined the character s life, emotions and behaviors Got it, know who he is The last 150 pages which actually told the story was good Too bad it took 200 pages of character definition By the time you get to the actual story you were ready for it to be over.


    6. Another excellent mystery, especially if you like following a legal dilemma Reading about corruption in the legal system is indeed scary Being a psych nurse, I was prepared for the final outcome, almost Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong The main character, Antonelli is good at his profession, but socially a bit of a loner HIs aide,Howard Flynn, a recovering alcoholic, is a lawyer by education, but lost his license because of his drinking He truly is a fantastic side kick for Antonelli [...]


    7. The story line was very good and the courtroom scenes were very descriptive Buffa did a nice job of explaining the law as a part of the narration of the characters in the story and that made everything interesting Oddy, I found this audio tape in Tuesday Mornings on the shelf while waiting for my wife shopping We both listened to it while traveling and this encouraged me to go to the local library for of Buffa.


    8. Published in 2001, I must have read this sometime between then now didnt remember it until well in to the storyline and then kept chugging along, knowing whodunit but not remembering the filler.If only I d read the review first Self, take note The dialog ranges from high reasoning to that with required for me large chunks of suspension of disbelief Not quite 4 stars, maybe somewhere in between.


    9. It was a page turner and there was much about it that I enjoyed However, I do wish that the author was as well versed in mental health as he is in the law at least I am assuming he is well versed in the law There was a major disappointment bewilderment in the end which might have been fixed with a one or two sentence explanation.


    10. The book starts off slow with probably a lot of unnecessary character sketches and love interests, but the last half is what makes the book most interesting Definitely want to try out some other book by this author.


    11. A remarkable thing about this book Like a lot of fiction I have read, I don t remember the plot of the book even after reading the synopsis The thing is, why is the word judgement misspelled


    12. I don t give 5 stars easily This one was close Was the last sentence really necessary Buffa is a great storyteller reeling you in from beginning to end.






    13. A great page turner, and you find yourself guess the ending, but not what you might expect Good book and easy to read.




    14. This is a great book First I ve read by this author so I m going to head to the library and grab another keep your fingers crossed
