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.

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!

This is the seventh addition to the Joseph Antonelli series. Antonelli is a middle-aged - actually it's difficult to pinpoint how old he is, he could be anywhere between his early 50's to mid-60's - well paid and well regarded defense attorney residing in San Francisco. Antonelli is so successful that he can pick and choose his clients - which of course means the author can pick and choose his topics.

Buffa's books are more than court-room dramas and legal thrillers - although there is plenty of that. This author's books are filled with complex characters and cases which are a springboard for philosophical - maybe esoteric, but still fascinating - portrayals and discussions of bigger social issues. This doesn't mean they are dull or boring, but they do make you think. So if you like your legal fiction with a little more meat on the bone, Buffa is your author.

Trial By Fire is no exception. Antonelli befriends and then represents a young and highly intelligent law professor who is accused of murdering a young woman in his home. The victim, an assistant DA, was a close friend of his client - maybe too close - and was married to an older and very powerful man - who may have a dark side. Although Antonelli's defense of his client is the plot, the real story here is the media's involvement with the case outside of the courtroom - i.e. the philosophical and contemplative twist that makes this book - and series - both entertaining and thought provoking.

The author's portrayal of the case both inside the courtroom and on Cable TV is handled extremely well, without becoming shrill and the cast of characters is well developed and thus very real. Although the ending does stretch credibility a bit - this is still a very satisfying and intelligent read. The author seems to have gone on a hiatus after this book - I hope he returns and writes more.
