    One Reply to “Inadmissable Evidence”

    1. Inadmissible Evidence by Philip Friedman is my surprise-favorite novel so far. It is a legal drama that is so engrossing to the point of forgetting your obligations. The book tells the story of Joseph Estrada a District Attorney in charge of the re-trial of Robert Morales. The accused is charged with the murder of his lover, Mariah Dodges. Joe has to aim towards conviction without repeating the mistakes of his earlier predecessor, Lawrence Khan. The case spirals to the point of nearly getting th [...]

    2. Surprisingly fresh and current despite the fact it was written almost 20years ago. This is a very interesting courtroom/criminal trial drama with the main character a prosecuting attorney. Nothing original about that except the story realistically reveals the technical obsticals (Inadmissable Evidence) with which the Prosecutor must copeeven when clearly the defendant is guilty. If only the jury could have access to the same information as the Police and the Prosecutors

    3. Community hero Roberto Morales, found guilty of killing his mistress, has his conviction reversed due to the judge's botched jury instructions. We follow prosecutor Joe Estrada, brought in for the retrial, as he juggles reluctant witnesses, new evidence, troubles at home, doubts about the defendants guilt, and a legal timebomb left by his predecessor.That summary sort of has the effect, at least to me, of implying that the book is cliche, schlocky, a potboiler, etc. Although there are some clich [...]

    4. This was absorbing and though dated, full of information and you-are-there about how trials work but in a story that is a page-turner. Seems this is it, though, for there is not more about Joe Estrada--yes, there is another book, but it does not attract from the reviews. Here we learn about how evidence works, and when you know what happened and need to prove it. The people are very alive and I felt like I knew them and moved among them. And a winner in the "this lawyer is a real person you'd li [...]

    5. First time that I caught this author. Equal to Grisham and Turow in the lawyer genre. The story was complex, truly did not know until the end how it was going to finish. I'll be looking for more from Friedman

    6. Little long, seems to go over some of the same stuff over & over & over . . . which I blame on the editor, for I think that's the editor's job, but enjoyed the story nonetheless. If a fan of legal thrillers, then this would be a good read!

    7. Thoroughly enjoyed this book.ting trialevidence galore, but the jury did the right thing.Good characters.ce writing although some was very over written and could have used an editor.

    8. A book only a lawyer could write, overlong, meandering and muzzy. Full of enough holes to allow all the false leads, red herrings and irrelevant inclusions to escape. Friedman's protagonist is a weakwilled and ultimately unlikable character. The conclusion is completely unacceptable.

    9. this took me forever to read, but i really enjoyed it. it reminded me of being back in college and sitting in criminal justice classes learning about law. it was written from a great law perspective with a strong police presence. thoroughly enjoyed!

    10. I would've given this book 3 1/2 stars if I had that option. Although the book was fast paced; it was too long. It seemed like I read the evidence over and over again good read but should've been cut by a couple hundred pages.

    11. Fast paced. Typical legal thriller with a big shot murdering his mistress. Good interaction between the prosecutor and the victim's sister.
