The judgment by Dudley W Buffa( Book )
23 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 1,564 libraries worldwide
"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 own name. 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 knew both sides of Judge Calvin Jeffries too well to believe the murders were simply random acts of violence. Attorney Jospeh Antonelli agrees to defend the accused. What he discovers challenges everything he knows about crime and punishment ... and himself. Beneath the tidy, well-cataloged pile of evidence, 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." For the culprit it is the perfect defense ... and Antonelli is his chosen, though willing, instrument."--Jacket

Nelson St. James, one of the world's richest men, is accused of a massive fraud, stealing billions from innocent investors. Before he can be brought to justice he is murdered on his yacht. His young wife, Danielle, whose face has been on the cover of every major fashion magazine, is charged with the crime. One of the best known lawyers in the country, Andrew Morrison, agrees to defend her, but only after she reminds him of certain things she knows about him, things that had happened between them a long time before. Morrison agrees to take the case, but when she tells him what happened the night her husband died he does not believe her. So she tells him something else instead. The story keeps changing, and the more it changes, the more entangled Morrison becomes. The trial comes to a stunning conclusion, and it is only then that the real story unravels and Andrew Morrison comes face to face not just with the truth but with himself. Three people, brought together in a fatal triangle of murder and deception; three people who swindle each other, and then swindle themselves. The Swindlers will leave you guessing until the final page." --P. 4 of cover
