Publisher's Summary

Guerrieri is asked to handle the appeal of Fabio Paolicelli, sentenced to 16 years for smuggling drugs. Paolicelli intially confessed to the crime, and everything seems stacked against the appeal. Guerrieri's reluctance to take on the case is intensified by the fact that he knows Paolicelli, and it is only the intervention of Paolicelli's beautiful wife, Natsu, that finally overcomes Guerrieri's reluctance.

What the Critics Say

"At one level an exciting courtroom thriller, but what places it in a superior league is the portrayal of a slice of Italian society not normally encountered in crime fiction and an immensely appealing flawed hero.'' (The Times, London)
"Hard-boiled and sun-dried in equal parts. Where Philip Marlowe would be knocking back bourbon and listening to the snap of fist on jaw, Guido Guerrieri prefers Sicilian wine and Leonard Cohen. The role of Guerrieri is to take on impossible cases that have little chance of success. His efforts to prove his client's innocence bring him into dangerous conflict with Mafia interests. Everything a legal thriller should be." (Financial Times)

Good story

I thought this was a well told crime novel, but although generally I like the main character, he is a bit depressing with his moaning and also his behaviour towards the defendant's wife left a lot to be desired.
Apart from that I thought it was an interesting book, Sean Barrett is a delightful narrator and the legal arguments were well put.

I just love this series

As with the previous 2 books in the series, I have listened to this at every possible opportunity over 48 hours. This is a lovely, thoughtful series strong on both a personal storyline and also perceptive courtroom arguments. I like Guido Guerrieri - who Sean Barrett reads to perfection - and am just about to download Book 4.
