    One thought on “The Defense”

    1. This book, the first in the Joseph Antonelli series, starts out quite slowly However, once you get past the first couple of chapters, the pace picks up to a point where you truly can t put it down Having listened to the book as an audio recording, I especially found this to be the case.Joseph Antonelli, the main character and narrator, is a Portland defense attorney who does t lose Unfortunately, in the case that leads off this story, he should vve lost However, as we all know, in the world of f [...]

    2. Like the other Buffa books, the story line was very good and the courtroom scenes were very descriptive Buffa does a nice job of explaining the law as a part of the narration of the characters in the story and that made everything interesting.

    3. PROTAGONIST Joseph Antonelli, defense attorneySETTING Portland, OregonSERIES 1RATING 3.75WHY Defense attorney Joseph Antonelli strongly believes that it is his job to get an acquittal for his clients, regardless of their guilt or innocence or how reprehensible their crime may be He rarely loses a case When his mentor, Judge Leonard Rifkin, asks him to take on a con man named Johnny Morel who has been accused of raping his daughter, Antonelli readily agrees and does his usual magic However, there [...]

    4. Went back and read the first, since Trial by Fire was so good It is a little bogged down, but a good start to a series and it also has a great ending.

    5. The Defense His ten years as a defense attorney and his doctorate in political science have always played a major roles in all his books When reading a book by D.W Buffa you can always expect excitement with the logicality of his previous job of being a lawyer A great and relatively new book by D.W is the Defense It is about a defense attorney Joseph Antonelli and a case that involves a stepfather and his 11 year old step daughter who was supposedly raped by him Joseph, who always wins his cases [...]

    6. D W Buffa, The Defense Henry Holt, 1997 It s hard to figure out which side of me is going to win the battle over how to review this book One side of me wants to harp on the slowest beginning in history The other side of me wants to harp on the fact that once I got past those opening chapters, I ended up reading most of the rest of it in one long marathon.After reading the first two interminable chapters of this novel, I was sure that I was going to hate it I d give it the fifty page test, toss i [...]

    7. MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS.First of the Buffa books I have read, though not first in the series.Main character is defense lawyer Joseph Antonelli, who s stepped away fr the law, due to past trauma, not clearly identified at start It includes the suicide of a jdge he really liked respected.Mystery involves the wife of Antonelli s close friend, a black judge who s a Viet vet who lost a leg during combat.

    8. Joseph Antonelli is a defense attorney who has never lost a case This is the story of about 15 years of his life and cases He wins his cases but not without major challenges that test him severely It s Buffa s first novel and I sure hope it isn t the last The characters are fascinating The start is good The middle is a tad slow but when you get to the last third of the book, it s one of those you are totally sucked into.

    9. Not a bad law thriller mystery, but not good either I figured out the big twist 1 3rd of the way through, which left me reading, not with an eye towards discovery, but with an eye on how the author hid the news.Also, in a world of CSI, Law and Order, and NCIS the final court case seemed underwhelming Simple things that seem to occur in every murder investigation were just ignored in the story Interesting look at consequences of the legal system, though.

    10. Uno di quei casi in cui il consiglio altrui stato azzeccatissimo Un vero legal thriller che per non si ferma alle aule dei tribunali e ai processi pieni di colpi di scena Ma espone in modo chiaro anche le disquisizioni su legge e giustizia, accusa e difesa, senza annoiare ma facendo riflettere molto sul sistema penale Il colpo di scena finale da maestro.

    11. This is by far DW Buffa s best book Great, fast read that you can t put down Plus it explores a lot of different issues that make you think and think after you finish the book It s one of my all time favorite books for all authors in this genre Buffa has never quite matched the level of this book in his subsequent books, although some are good reads But this was his masterpiece

    12. Joseph Antonelli is a superstar criminal defense attorney who has never lost a case He s asked by his dear friend, Judge Leopold Rifkin, to defend a man accused of raping his 13 year old step daughter After the acquittal of the client that he s all but certain is guilty, a complicated plot for revenge is set in motion with a conclusion that I found predictable yet very entertaining.

    13. Not terrible as a story but not at all thrilling Lack of action to call it a thriller Did not finish the last 50 pgs b c I had to return it to the library.

    14. A Christmas present from Dermot this year A book and author I knew nothing about when I got them.A very pleasant surprise to find it such a good and unconventional read.

    15. I thoroughly enjoyed this While the ending was somewhat predictable, the details were not I look forward to reading by this author.

    16. This wasn t my favorite legal thriller but it is one in which I never saw the end coming I had figured out who did it but was still surprised.

    17. The first half of the book takes way too long to set up the story but it still held my interest The conclusion I was not expecting.

    18. I read this so long ago, I was halfway through before I realized it It s a good read now I have to see if I ever read any of the rest of this series.

    19. Is a good story but moves too fast for me Time passes too fast and the story doesn t develop quite like I wanted it to.

    20. So so legal thriller Lots of time goes by during the course of the book and sometimes things seem disjointed though they all resolve in the end.

    21. Very Good Continuing character Joe Antonelli defense lawyer sets off a 10 year series of events when he defends a man guilty of abusing his step daughter.
