Publisher's Summary

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

Carofiglio writes deceptively quiet crime novels. There are no bullets. Most of the action is in observation, conversation & mental debate. Still, they grip and don't let go.

Even in translation, the prose is beautiful, read by the wonderful Sean Barrett.

The city of Bari comes alive in these stories. You don't need to read the full series to enjoy this one, but repeat readers are fed little tidbits they will enjoy. In this book Guido's team stay in the background more than usual but boxing, the sea, the all night bookshop, art, comics and music all have cameos.

Another psychologically honest & human story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What other book might you compare A Fine Line to, and why?

The others in this series - especially "reasonable doubt"

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I love the scenes where we "hear" what he "didn't say"

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed out loud a few times at the above

Any additional comments?
