In Lisa Scottoline's Corrupted, Bennie Rosato, the founder of the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm, hides her big heart beneath her tough-as-nails exterior and she doesn't like to fail. Now, a case from her past shows her how differently things might have turned out. Thirteen years ago, Bennie Rosato took on Jason Leftavick, a twelve-year-old boy who was sent to a juvenile detention center after fighting a class bully. Bennie couldn't free Jason, and to this day it's the case that haunts her. Jason has grown up in and out of juvenile prison, and his adulthood hasn't been any easier. Bennie no longer represents those accused of murder, but when Jason is indicted for killing the same bully he fought with as a kid, she sees no choice but to represent him. She doesn't know whether or not to believe his claims of innocence, but she knows she owes him for past failures-of the law, of the juvenile justice system, and of herself. Forced to relive the darkest period of her life, Bennie will do everything in her power to get the truth, and justice.

"If you think you know Lisa Scottoline's writing (and I was pretty sure I did), you will be pleasantly surprised and overwhelmed by CORRUPTED. I normally listen to audiobooks while driving, but I was so completely into this one, I took it into a hotel room to keep listening to it.
Bennie Rosato is human, and has feelings - yes, I was surprised too. She does keep secrets from her associates (well, at least one). Mix in gaming/fantasy characters and Bennie's need to right a previous wrong, and you have an excellent novel (even more exciting than we usually get from Lisa).
KATE BURTON reads this audiobook, and she is PERFECT. Daughter of Richard Burton, she is an actress known most recently for her role on ABC's Scandal. "
