Read full description of the books:
I was very confused at first. Then it occurred to me that he was trying to show what really happens inside a courtroom as opposed to what we see on a TV program or movie. And life is not all about excitement- there is a balance of boredom and details. It became more tolerable.
Then he adds a few more mysteries to be solved and the reading pace picks up. Was it really the artist who died? Or was it someone the artist killed and put in his studio? Who was the artist really? Who was his wife? Where did she come from? All her life she was told she was Vietnamese but she didn't know the language. Why wasn't she educated? Why is/was she depicted as a "black widow"?
What part does the house play with all its strange rooms and stairs going nowhere ? Does his mistress or former employers know him any better than his friends?
All these questions plus increase the drama while the trial is coming to a close and waiting for a verdict.
There are romantic interludes to also help us through the boredom. We also have relief provided by the country boy from Kansas taking on a first writing assignment with a large New York publishing House. We feel his stress as he has so little to go on: money problems from the outset and somehow he has to do an investigative search; artist's studio burnt to ground- so many guests from party contaminated the scene by trying to put out fire before they knew it was a crime scene, even the sheriff; everyone knows him and considers him a friend; yet, no-one really knows the man-where is he going to get answers??- meanwhile, funding depends on whether his writings about the trial and the man provide enough interest both to the public and the publisher because a future movie hangs in the balance.
The writer is a fully developed character. The author has given us a picture of the young man at home in Kansas. Working his dad's farm and trying to take care of his sisters and save enough money to get married to his long-time girlfriend. Things aren't going well so he looks for an outside job.
Off he goes to New York, he is naturally confused by everything. The first day of the trial he is latched onto by a predator female reporter. She brings him into their group and he has new found friends and they provide the court routine as well as expected behavior. Sitting with the press gives him an opportunity to observe the widow who has been charged with the murder, her legal team and the prosecuting attorney and his team closely.
In the end I was glad I stuck with this book to its conclusion. And I have promoted it among friends.
