"No one had a more brilliant legal mind than Judge Calvin Jeffries. And no one cared less about the law and more about power. That is, until Jeffries is found murdered in a courthouse parking lot. The crime shocks the community, but justice is swift. Jeffries's killer is caught, confesses, and then unexpectedly commits suicide in his jail cell. The case is closed. Soon a second judge is stabbed to death under identical circumstances. This time the suspect is a homeless derelict who doesn't even know his wn name. Like the Jeffries murder, the killing appears to be an open-and-shut case, and a copycat crime as well." - from Goodreads.

This is the third book in Buffa's Joseph Antonelli series. I didn't think it would be better than the first two, but it is. I couldn't put it down. I love the courtroom scenes, Antonelli draws the jury in, is so quick witted and such a great strategist as well as a superb judge of people. His character demonstrates the ability to use psychology during a legal argument and excels in the art of persuasion. Some of the social issues he covers in this book: homelessness, corruption, mental illness, the idea of what exactly is "normal" and more. It's another must read for D.W. Buffa fans. Excellent book!
