I heard Gianrico Carofiglio interviewed on public radio and was intrigued enough to buy my first audio version of his book. I liked it so much that I bought another one this month. The vividly depicted internal monologue of this brilliant, but damaged attorney successfully blends the story of his psychological struggles with the legal mazes he maneuvers. The "voice" of the author is well served by the narrator, Sean Barrett, whose performance is outstanding - giving the listener the sensation of being inside this lawyer/sleuth's head!

Guerrieri loves Leonard Cohen and old movies.
By no meams does a person have to have read the earlier books to enjoy this well written story, so well interpreted by Sean Barrett.
While there is implied threats of violence because of Mafia involvement in drug running, the story needs no graphic descriptions of violence. There is a lingering desire for revenge for past events that Guerrieri has to confront, he thinks, to represent his potential client.
The story walks us through a story of the city of Bare using the very personal and professional experiences of Guerrieri. At times humourous and at times visually 'poetic' this is a good story from start to finish.

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.

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.
