Editorial Reviews

Review

"A strong courtroom [drama] that hooks you fast - and pulls you straight through to a knotty, post-courtroom surprise ending...Neat storytelling...you'll never guess who did it." ~Kirkus Reviews
 
"Joseph Amiel's book stands head & shoulders above other popular 'legal' novels. A Question of Proof is brilliantly crafted from the opening line to the finale. It is the finest suspense novel I've read in years...entrancing. The outcome was a mystery to the last sentence. A masterpiece of suspense! ~Gregg Jarrett, Anchor Fox News Live, Court TV
 
"Joseph Amiel has another winner! A Question of Proof is a legal thriller, taut with suspense, you won't be able to put it down. ~Barry Reed, author of The Verdict and The Choice

From the Author

Introduction
It was my wife, her eReader firmly in hand, who first urged me to consider reissuing my novels, so as to reach a new audience who is reading its books in digital formats.

I had not looked inside the pages of any of my books since they were published; they sat on my office shelf as more or less part of the décor. I pulled down a copy of A Question of Proof. Quickly, recollection returned, and I remembered why the book had meant so much to me. A Question of Proof was my fifth novel, and both its writing and the end result had given me great joy. It was the book that had allowed me to marry fully my training as a lawyer with my passion to tell a compelling story. Also, the book's protagonist, Dan Lazar, contains more of me than any of my other characters.

Going back and reading the book turned out to be a gratifying experience. I found the story and the dark mystery at its heart gripping me. Apart from references to events in the book's earlier time frame, the story felt immediate, as if it was happening now, with many of the same problems facing people today that prevailed then. After much contemplation, I decided that moving the novel into the present and adding new material would provide the same immediacy experienced by my original readers. The result is the book you are about to read, which I believe is as exciting and compelling as when it was first published. I hope it gives you the pleasure that has always been my reason for writing.

a well written book, which suddenly turns from a legal mystery to a who done it! i dont understand this compulsion in writers, when they run out of legal ideas they turn to unnecessary story complications! so this turns out to be another pot pourri of love story, murder, politics and confused lawyer. still the author's writing style is good enough to keep you reading it till the end.

Uneven writing, some just plain terrible. For example, the author describes a sharp-edged blunt instrument. That's an oxymoron. Poorly constructed sentences, such as the one describing the man who found a job as a waiter and a wife.

The main character and the love interest fall into and out of love numerous times as he becomes convinced she's a murderess, then not, then yes, then no. No relationship could realistically survive this.

And the scenes in the courtroom are simply not credible. No judge would tolerate the direct address by one attorney to he other.

Very weak all around.

I bought this book after receiving a tweet and was wowed by A Question of Proof. This is an absorbing novel with superb writing. Although billed as a suspense mystery, it is much more than that. Amiel has created a fascinating story which evolves from compelling characters in an intriguing predicament. The love story of a couple in tension felt real. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading Star Time, which was excerpted at the end of this book.

Joe Amiel created a delicious cocktail of greed, betrayal, murder and, oh yes, sex. I was up until 4:00 this a.m. to finish this book because I could not stand the suspense of "who done it" any longer. In this well-crafted novel you won't find out until the very end. The michigas of the cast of fascinating characters makes for a delightful read and the social/historic background Mr. Amiel manages to add, without slowing down the action, gives them solidity and dimension. Can't wait until the Kindle release of his next novel.

I am not done with the book, and I am not sure I can finish it. It jumped from first person using the defense lawyer to first person of the jilted rich woman and back, and now we have introduced yet another first person in the form of a detective. Also, we know that Peter is dead because it tells us this in the prologue. Then the story jumps back 4 months, and as things happen during those 4 months, we don't have any clear reference of how the time passes. Suddenly a third woman is dead and we don't know if it was a week after the beginning, a month, two months, nothing clear. Also, editing-wise, at one point Cal turns to Cal. Really? How could they have missed that? The defense attorney is not likable. The rich woman seems so pathetic, even though the author's written word is saying otherwise. The angry adolescent who "hates" her mother is so overdone. There just aren't any characters to like in this story. As readers, we want to relate to somebody, and there isn't anyone. I laugh when I read the 5 star ratings. It's not anywhere near there, not even close. The writer likes to throw in historical Philly facts, and that adds a little flavor, but it doesn't add enough to compensate for the uneven, silly story. I recommend to save your money.

Dan Lazar is a lawyer with a reputation of defending Philadelphia’s more questionable criminal element, and it is during his high profile defense of a low-level pimp against charges of being a notorious serial rapist-murderer that he is introduced to Peter Boelter, the owner and publisher of the major newspaper, the Philadelphia Herald, and his beautiful socialist wife, Susan. After successfully defending his client by breaking down a key witness, Dan suddenly finds himself the target of a baseless accusation of witness tampering and bribery that threatens his career. Meanwhile, when Susan defies Peter on a stock vote regarding the paper, she is suddenly faced with a devastating divorce suit designed to strip her of any money, child custody or dignity. Susan reaches out to Dan for help and the two become lovers. But after Peter is found dead and evidence begins to point to Susan, Dan faces a conflict of interest in defending a woman he is having an affair with. For the most part, the story is well-written, deeply complex and keeps the reader’s interest in the mystery. There are some unlikely coincidences that are designed to extend the suspense, and at times, the scales of justice are pushed a little too off-balance to create more pressure than necessary, but the main characters’ conflict over truth, justice and desire are well-explored.

This was a good book. The story moved along and the characters were believable and entertaining. My guess of the murderer was right in the end but the story had so many twists and turns that I wasn't really sure until the author revealed it. What I liked best though was the author's writing. Interspersed with this fast paced murder mystery were all these gems of insight and philosophy about life and love and justice and other ponderings as the main character talked to himself about what was going on. Loved the style of writing, kept my interest throughout.
