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."
"Smart, fast-paced entertainment that moves toward a very satisfying conclusion. A crackling good psychological thriller." (James Patterson)
"Buffa once again produces a fast-spinning tale that jolts and veers enticingly... " (Publishers Weekly)

NOT a good whodunnit
This book is not for the serious courtroom afficionado. Too predictable. The narrator was alright, pleasant baritone.

Great story, characters and writing
Buffa is one of my favorite mystery writers and The Judgment is riveting. Buffa's handling of psychological material key to the story is fantastic.
