Synopsis

Synopsis: A legal thriller...
A superstar defense attorney, Joseph Antonelli has made his reputation by winning at any cost, watching the wheels of justice turn, outguessing every turn and every lurch. Now he's come out of retirement to win again. Only this time his job is not to defend, it is to prosecute-to send a deputy district attorney to death row for the crime of murder for hire. But in a torrid case of violence, adultery, and betrayal, lies compound lies, truths defy belief, and finally, one murder leads to another. Suddenly Antonelli knows that in this case the wheels of justice are warped by money and power. And putting the right person away isn't just a matter of law, it's a matter of survival. . . .

Accolades:
"A great, and I mean great, read; what a book! Dudley W. Buffa, who gave us The Defense, now brings us The Prosecution. I won't give away the plot, but let's say this: You'll love this book. If you don't, you're at the morgue." - Larry King

"Buffa’s spare observation, crackling dialogue, and shadowy circle of criminals, lawyers, and lovers keep you riveted."
-Entertainment Weekly

"An excellent legal thriller with a well thought-out plot and believable characters. But it also scores as a novel of cold, calculating revenge perpetrated by an intelligence so formidable it goes unrecognized until too late."
-USA Today

"EXPLOSIVE . . . D. W. BUFFA IS ONE OF A KIND."
–San Jose Mercury News
