This suspenseful legal thriller tells the story of Judge Larocca, who, to quote The Brothers Karamazov, 'lies to himself and listens to his own lies, so gets to the point where he can no longer distinguish the truth'. A man always looking to justify his evil and corrupt behaviour, he is perhaps an apposite metaphor for Italy itself. When he becomes the subject of corruption allegations, fellow judge Guerrieri goes against his better instincts and takes the case.
Eventually justice will be served, though perhaps not in the most orthodox of ways.

Quiet yet gripping
Another psychologically honest & human story
My favourite books are the ones in which the style of writing is just as enjoyable & significant as the plot. The Fine Line is one of these. For me this series of books are not first and foremost about plot but rather are about human feelings / interactions and emotional honesty.
The others in this series - especially "reasonable doubt"
I love the scenes where we "hear" what he "didn't say"
Laughed out loud a few times at the above
