Fantastic!!!!. This book is going to go into my top 100 paperback reads of my life. I mean this is a book that has a basic plot which is kind of steered in such a manner to make it really look more complicated. The beauty of the book is the mixing of the flashbacks with the present. I mean few authors given this basic plot line could have told a story which is pushed forward by such amount of sheer relentless tension and suspense for over 500 odd pages. Mr paget is a attorney acting as defence for an alleged murderer who happens to be his divorced wife who in turn claims that she shot the man she is accused of killing in self defence in the process of avoiding getting raped. The whole book unravels chapter by chapter where Mr Paget and ourselves dont know whether to believe the story of the accused story or the evidence of the prosecutor. Evidence doesnt support the theory of the defendant and we keep hurtling through the pages as Mr paget battles it out in the courtroom trying to convince the court that there isnt full and incontrovertible evidence pointing to his clients guilt. The twists and turns, the lies and deception will thrill you and the emotional aspect of the book has been delt superbly. This book is legal drama thriller interspersed with emotional family drama. Enjoy...

Just Great !! This is one of the few court room driven books, that I have liked and not wanted to filp ahead or just put down. I just read this book, I had bought it used. It was well worth the S&H charges too. R.N.P was very detailed and tied every piece together. Excellent Book !!!!
BUT !!! The other day I saw a preview for this a Lifetime movie that combined Degree Of Guilt and another. Well, the acting was BAD, the editing WORSE.. This could have made such a great movie, why it was so poorly screen-made, it's just a shame.Advice Don't bother with the Made for tv movie.

This was a page turning legal thriller from the very beginning. Mr. Patterson manages to weave legal procedures into a gripping story that does not leave the reader neither confused nor bored. This was a first time read for me by this author and I was thrilled to find it very entertaining. This book had it all, suspense, romance (only a little and very back burner), murder...trust me pick this book up you won't be able to put it down. This will be an author that I will read again.

As I continue to read Mr. Patterson's books, I am in awe at this man's brilliance and writing skills. "Degree of Guilt" is an awesome book, filled with labrynthine plottings, excellently developed characters, and competent legal derring-do. As in all of Patterson's books, we find characters that are far from perfect, and whose personal secrets and disappointments can be both heartwrenching and disturbing. Unfortunately, I read "Eyes of a Child" which was written after this, so I knew some of what was going on with Mary and Paget and with Teresa and Richie. Patterson's development of the tension between Terri and her worthless husband is chilling; with no resolution truly in this book, one can find out what happens in "Eyes of a Child," but you would do best to read this one first.
Anyway, we know from the beginning that Mary Carelli murdered Mark Ransome, but why and what is all the intriguing things that Mary has done that she won't share with Paget? Patterson brilliantly unfolds a scenario that takes us back into Chris and Mary's past; and how Terri and Chris become the best of friends and more so. It's a great book, I don't want to go into too many plot details, but trust me, this one is a real winner!
HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Patterson is the thinking man's Grisham. His characters take on a life of their own, and Degree of Guilt doesn't disappoint. RNB is really the best of his genre, as his books are fast-paced, intelligently written, and are plausible.

RNP is one of my favourite writers and this is one of his best. It is a real courtroom thriller and really keeps you hooked. The surprises are great, especially the one towards the end of the book. A must read especially if you are a courtroom thriller lover.

Degree of Guilt's protagonist, Christopher Paget, has a difficult decision to make. His former lover, the mother of his son, has suddenly reappeared in their lives. The reason? She's accused of murdering one of America's best-known novelists.
While the courtroom dramatics are gripping, it is the out-of-court events which really propel this novel. Paget's emotional journey as the story unfolds is one that will cause the reader to feel sympathy pains.
This was my first time to read Patterson, but definitely not the last.

This was the first book from Richard North Patterson that I have read, and certainly not the last. Character are very well defined and dialogues are very good. Patterson know how to tell a good legal story...
