The judgment by Dudley W Buffa( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 1,546 WorldCat member 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

Drawing on in-depth interviews and research from the private sector, this study demonstrates how open, information-driven systems perform and can be used by government to solve our major problems, including quality education, health care, protection of the environment, and public safety. In the 1950s, when America was the world's single industrial giant, three out of four U.S. workers were engaged in manufacturing. Forty years later the industrial age is over: in 1996, almost 50 percent of the workforce relies on computers and fewer than one in six hold factory-related jobs.

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
The dark backward by Dudley W Buffa( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Darnell thought he had seen every kind of human conflict, every type of human tragedy, seen them in all their immense variety ... He had known, and defended, every kind of murderer, all of them, despite their differences, driven by the same desire, known since Cain slew Abel: the need to kill because, in their twisted imaginations, it was the only way their own lives would be worth living. But that was before he knew Adam and began the strangest case of his long career. It was impossible to explain; or rather, impossible to believe. The defendant, who did not speak English or any other language anyone could identify, had been found on an island no one knew existed, and charged with murder, rape and incest. He was given the name Adam, and Adam, as Darnell comes to learn, is more intelligent, quicker to learn, than anyone he has ever met. Adam, he learns to his astonishment, is a member of an ancient civilization that has remained undiscovered for more than three thousand years. William Darnell had promised to retire after a trial in which the captain of a luxury yacht that went down in the Atlantic is charged with murder because of what had been done to survive during the forty days they were lost at sea. He breaks that promise to take a case that rescues from the oblivion of time the lost tribe of Atlantis that has somehow managed to survive on an island in the Pacific. The Dark Backward tells a tale about both the limits, and the power, of the human imagination. It leaves you with the question whether Atlantis was nothing more than an ancient myth, or might still exist. William Darnell, to his own astonishment, discovers that what he had always believed was wrong."~back cover
