To Philadelphia lawyer Grace Rossi, who's starting over after a divorce, a part-time job with a federal appeals court sounds perfect. But Grace doesn't count on being assigned to an explosive death penalty appeal. Nor does she expect ardor in the court in the form of an affair with her boss, Chief Judge Armen Gregorian. Then the truly unimaginable happens and Grace finds herself investigating a murder.

As Grace searches for the truth, she unearths a six-figure bank account kept by the judge with an alias; breaks into another judge's chambers; and follows a trail of bribery and judicial corruption that's stumped even the FBI. In no time at all, Grace under fire takes on a whole new meaning.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary | 2/11/2014

    " Second book of The First Two Novels of Lisa Scottoline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannie | 2/10/2014

    " I recently found a Lisa Scottoline book at a yard sale - loved it. I then proceeded to purchase all of her books from half.com and am working my way through them. I have found that she starts with a bang. She grabs you in the beginning and holds you throughout the entire book, this is a rarity. If your a fan of crime / lawyer / suspense you can't miss with Scottoline. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 2/9/2014

    " Too violent and depressing for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jean Perry | 2/6/2014

    " O.k.,not great, entertaining. I like her female law firm series better than this one, but I do enjoy the Philly setting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin Smeby | 1/26/2014

    " Good, summer read. I like Bernice! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 1/16/2014

    " Not as strong as other Scottoline books I've read. The death penalty issue (which promises to play a major role) fizzles out. It reads like a book cranked out to complete a contract, or to fulfill a deadline, good, not great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie Stone | 1/15/2014

    " It was a good, fast-paced lawyer suspense novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lain | 1/9/2014

    " Obviously one of Scottoline's first novels. Pretty weak in terms of plotting and character development, but still includes the wicked humor and smooth writing that are Scottoline's trademarks. Not recommended unless you're a true fan and want to see the author's early work and trace development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Evers | 1/8/2014

    " Another good read for bedtime and relaxing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 12/20/2013

    " Scottoline books are fun to read and this is one of better ones - good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 10/7/2013

    " Another good one - I'm for sure going to keep reading her novels. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 aPriL MEOWS often with scratching | 10/5/2013

    " Better than Everywhere That Mary Went. This is a cozy mystery, where some dark events occur offstage and are quickly gotten over, lots of family cuteness and possible romantic interests meet cutely as well. Bubbly stuff, not much legal or thriller. I think of books like this as suburban mom pinks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 9/21/2013

    " This was not my favorite Lisa Scottoline book. It didn't hold my interest the way most of her's do, but the story was interesting and I enjoyed the characters! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Little Ms Schull | 9/16/2013

    " Fantastic read the whole way through! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Syd Perry | 7/19/2013

    " This was another good mystery. Scottoline always has lots of threads that hang loose for awhile but get tied up in the end. DADDY'S GIRL is still my favorite Scottoline book. It's the teacher thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cora | 7/6/2013

    " Another great Lisa Scottoline book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 5/14/2013

    " One of Scottoline's early books, but it's a good one. She's got a way with words. The plot's interesting enough as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irene | 3/1/2013

    " book two in the series -- didn't realize that most of the characters don't overlap. Still, an interesting story with some good plot twists, romance, danger, lawyer jokes, a dog... Scottoline is consistently a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 12/31/2012

    " Very Good; Continuing characters: Rosato&Assoc law firm; lawyer tries to uncover murderer of her boss, who she had fallen in love with and won't believe committed suicide "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Carosella | 9/11/2012

    " It was a good fun read with a lot twists and turns that made it fun and interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary | 4/24/2012

    " Unfinished due to boredom with the story. Although I have enjoyed four of the Mary DiNunzio stories, I couldn't get into this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 4/15/2012

    " This was a good book for bedtime reading falling asleep to. I would probably read another if it was a reasonable price on Ibooks. Moving on to PD James now, still haven't finished City of Z "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee Hanson | 3/11/2012

    " Love the character Benny Rosato and her all female law office. "

    " Great beach read! Completed in three days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassandra. | 1/24/2012

    " #2 Rosato and Associates. Wonderful female characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TeriC | 12/12/2011

    " Not her best but good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Antonia | 12/8/2011

    " Pretty basic lawyer-type suspense novel. nothing too special, but not bad either "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 8/9/2011

    " I would have liked this quick law thriller so much more if the characters didn't need there mouths washed out with soap!! It was easy to skip over their explicatives, but I hate having to do so. Too bad. The story was fine and I liked that it had the feel of a Grisham story, but much shorter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 5/1/2011

    " A quick, fun suspense with a cast of quirky characters. My first book by this author but probably not my last. The storyline jumps around a bit, and some characters are developed better than others, but if you're looking to escape into an enjoyable thriller with mild bloodshed,read this! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 4/10/2011

    " Having read one of her more recent novels first and then going back and reading the first, I can see a big difference in her writing. I enjoyed the story but not as much as "Look Again." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary | 3/19/2011

    " Unfinished due to boredom with the story. Although I have enjoyed four of the Mary DiNunzio stories, I couldn't get into this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 12/10/2010

    " Other than the one sex scene, which was unnecessary, I thought this was a good book. It had suspense, likeable characters, and realistic plotline. I guessed who the murderer was, so it could have used a few more twists, but overall, it was a good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 12/7/2010

    " I read this on cd-- it moved quickly and I was rooting for the main character all the way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 12/6/2010

    " Enjoyable read. Probably not the most believable but well written and fun to read. "

    " This book is an easy read and I like trying to figure out who the murderer is before I get to the end of the story. I can tell that Grace Rossi will continue to solve murders in the future and I look forward to reading those adventures. "
