First Rate!!! 2. Juni 2005
Von John R. Linnell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
D.W. Buffa's novels are always a read to be anticipated. His latest does not disappoint. In setting up his main character, Joseph Antonelli finds himself as a guest on one of those interminable cable news channel "talk" shows about topics of the day in which the host and some of the guests have a preordained point of view and then proceed to roast and belittle anyone who opposes it. On this show Antonelli and a young law profesor, Justin Sinclair are the roastees and their protestations that you cannot prejudge guilt or innocence based upon newspaper stories and rumors are treated like a pinata at a Mexican birthday party.

Soon thereafter, Sinclair is charged with murdering one of the other guests on the show, Daphne McMillan. McMillan is a prosecutor and she is also married to a man, who as it turns out may have murdered his first wife and is more than capable of murdering Daphne. However, the circumstances of the murder, in Sinclair's home, her blood on his hands and evidence of a romantic relationship which she was ending lead the talk show types to convict Sinclair in advance and during the trial that follows, not even the great Joseph Antonelli can save him from being convicted.

The retribution which follows the conviction is interesting and at times a bit fanciful, but Buffa never lets certain things stand in his way of telling a story and while some liberties are taken, the story suffers not at all. While the novel stands as an indictment of the cable mentality that infects this nation and much of the world, it is also first rate fiction written by an author who desrves all of the awards he has been given.

Conviction before a trial? Sure: dial a talk-show TV channel 1. Juni 2005
Von Russell A. Rohde MD - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Trial By Fire," by D. W. Buffa, New York, G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2005. ISBN 0-399-15281-4- HC, 293 pp. & 9.25" x 6.25".

The latest of 7 novels by experienced crime fiction author, DW Buffa, Esq., who writes with an assured, vigorous & winning style, expected qualities of a practicing successful courtroom defense attorney.

Buffa again makes use of San Francisco criminal defense lawyer & protagonist Joseph Antonelli, junior member of lawfirm run by Albert Craven, friend. Reluctantly steered by Craven, Antonelli joins as panel guest on the TV Bryan Allen Show along with Daphne McMillan, ADA; Julian Sinclair, Law Prof. UC; & Paula Constable, societal Trial Attorney -- for a lively discussion on hearsay evidence suggesting a husband had butchered his young wife -- a TV spectacle when even a trial date had not been set! Antonelli & Sinclair voice feverent oppostiion to the thrust of TV panel indictments & are dismayed at the jeopardizing portentous perils & media feeding-frenzy ejaculated by the Bryan Allen Show. As fate would have it, Daphne McMillan's butchered body in Julian Sinclair's home makes him a suspect & so he too is subjected to a TV Newsmedia Trial shaping public opinion on the Bryan Allen Show.

The story unfolds realistically - indeed, we are tacitly prompted to identify the machinations & frequenters with the Scott Peterson trial, Paula with Gloria Allred, Bryan with Larry King (an/or now Nancy), etc...perhaps.

The mockery of the plot, the devious stratagem of some principals & the inventive closure is affably engineered - & perhaps we are wont to a sequel...? The book is not only timely, but worse, its theme is too dreadfully true of our USA "Land of the Free". The courtroom drama is told shrewdly & the writing is succinct, no superflous words or embellishments. I was fortunate to have attended an author's book signing in Napa, CA in May '05 & Dudley Buffa discussed his Antonelli character, reading Chap. 2 so invitingly I purchased a copy of his book & look forward to reading the others.

Seeking justice in an unjust world. 9. Mai 2005
Von E. Bukowsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
D. W. Buffa's latest legal thriller, "Trial by Fire," features criminal defense attorney extraordinaire Joseph Antonelli. Julian Sinclair, a brilliant and distinguished law professor, is arrested for the murder of Daphne McMillan, an Assistant District Attorney in San Francisco. Sinclair asks Antonelli to defend him, and without hesitation, Joseph takes the case. He likes and admires Sinclair, and he is certain that his client is innocent. Unfortunately, the media and public opinion quickly turn against Sinclair, and Joseph soon realizes that his chances of winning an acquittal are slim.

Buffa's central theme is the destructive role that newspapers and television play in high profile cases. In order to boost circulation and inflate ratings, broadcast and print journalists often make inflammatory and prejudicial statements, caring little that their words and actions may influence potential jurors and make a fair trial all but impossible.

The courtroom scenes are excellent and I enjoyed the give and take of the cross examinations, as well as the eloquence of the attorneys' arguments. Joseph Antonelli is an engrossing narrator and an admirable protagonist. He is a man of integrity who is unpretentious, hard-working, and very creative and clever in the courtroom. To his credit, the author doesn't clutter his book with unnecessary gore, shallow romances, or silly chase scenes. He focuses on the law, on personalities, and how difficult it is to obtain justice in our society.

The novel has its weaknesses as well. Some of the characters in this book are a bit too one dimensional, and Buffa strains his plot to the breaking point in an effort to come up with a surprise ending. In addition, he writes quite a few passages and lines of dialogue that sound artificial. In spite of these flaws, the story of Julian Sinclair held my interest, and whenever Antonelli speaks about the law with intelligence, insight, and passion, he commands the reader's undivided attention.

Trial By Fire 10. Januar 2007
Von D. A. McPhail - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Like many of the great lone-wolf characters, Joseph Antonelli has become an individual about whom we want to learn more, and hear more. Just as we struggle with the personal charms and failings of Harry Bosch or Adam Dalgliesh or Dismas Hardy or Guido Brunetti, we come to believe in them, their fallibilities and their small victories.

D.W. Buffa has created a character that endures, and draws the reader to his next book. And like the best dramas, whether profound or merely popular, the surrounding characters are also alive and thoroughly interesting in their own right. Whether it is the inventive quirks of his judges, or the contemporary take on talk show hosts and media types, Buffa creates a compelling story.

In Trial By Fire, he adds a media mogul who deserves our concern, a love for Australia and Berkelely that comes through loud and clear, and a plot twist that makes you glad you read his well-constructed story. I can't wait to see what Antonelli is doing next!

Beautiful Symmetry 12. November 2007
Von P. Schumacher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Buffa is always good at characterization, and very good--even poetic--at description of place. He is also superb at moral ambiguity.

Here he adds swiss-watch construction.

As always, he does not just treat individual cases, but whole concepts-- global justice, retribution, the nature of relationships, media, the ability to know the truth.

I saw the ending coming long before it came, but that did not lessen my appreciation for the beautiful symmetry of this book.

Julian Sinclair expresses appreciation for "The Count of Monte Christo," and that old-fashioned sense of balance pervades the book.

Still, it is right up to date in its sharp critique of Trial by Media and rushing to judgment.

Great work.
