Summary

In Chapter 27, “Openings,” Barber watches as Logiudice uses the trial techniques that Barber had taught him. He argues that Jacob snapped when Ben pushed him too far as he teased him. Logiudice reasons that since Jacob’s father was a district attorney, he knew how to commit the murder so he would not get caught. Logiudice finds himself caught in a trap of his own making as he tries to argue the why of the murder since he first said that Jacob had acted out of sudden rage, then also said that the murder was planned. Barber realizes that the jury knows he can’t have it both ways. Klein, whom Barber believes is the more likeable lawyer, argues that Ben’s death was a horrible tragedy but that by finding Jacob guilty, the jury will be causing another tragedy.
