Beschreibung

No one had a more brilliant legal career than Judge Calvin Jeffries. And no one cared less about the law and more about power. That is, until Jeffries is found murdered in a courthouse parking lot. The crime shocks the community, but justice is swift. Jeffries's killer is caught, confesses, and then unexpectedly commits suicide in his jail cell. The case is closed.

Soon a second judge is stabbed to death under identical circumstances. And like the Jeffries murder, the killing appears to be an open-and-shut case, and a copycat crime as well.

Yet there's one attorney who knows both sides of Judge Calvin Jeffries too well to believe the murders were simply random acts of violence. Attorney Joseph Antonelli agrees to defend the accused. What he discovers challenges everything he knows about crime and punishment...and himself. He uncovers a twisted trail of retribution and obsession that leads to the real killer - and a plan even more chillingly flawless than the mythical "perfect crime."

Also available abridged.

Eine perfekte Mischung

American justice, love and crime - vorgetragen von einer perfekten Stimme. Ich hatte noch nie etwas von D.W. Buffa, gehört oder gelesen, wünsche mir jetzt aber unbedingt weitere Hörbücher von diesem Autor. Die Geschichte ist spannend, in der Mischung der Szenen ungewöhnlich und genau das macht sie so interessant. Buffa garniert das Ganze auch noch mit philosopischen Grundansichten der besonderen Art. Wer alles von Grisham kennt und etwas Ähnlich gutes sucht, ist damit gut bedient.

The perfect legal thriller

A legal thriller full of interesting characters, good side stories, interesting thoughts about legal questions, and some unexpected twists. Something that you will get hooked to. I just could not stop listening until I was finished. I hope to read (or listen to) more of this author.

Dennis Predovic has a very good voice that fits in perfectly with the character of the narrator of the story. Very nicely read.
