Mary DiNunzio is strong, smart, and she's got plenty of attitude. In recent years, she's become a big-time business-getter at Rosato & Associates, but the last person she expects to walk into her office is Trish Gambone, her high school rival. Trish's life has taken a horrifying turn. She's terrified of her live-in boyfriend, who's an abusive, gun-toting drug dealer for the South Philly mob. There's only one problem—Mary remembers the guy, too, and had a major crush on him.

Before Mary knows it, Trish vanishes. Then a dead body turns up in an alley, and Mary is plunged into a nightmare. She goes on a one-woman crusade to unmask the killer, and on the way, finds new love in a very unexpected place. But before the novel's shocking surprise ending, Mary is forced to confront some very uncomfortable truths about her own past, and the profound effects of lifelong love—and hate.

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

  • “Lisa Scottoline at the top of her whodunit game.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Scottoline and Rosenblat team up to bring us another suspenseful mystery featuring Philadephia lawyer Mary DiNunzio…Barbara Rosenblat could not have read this any better—her portrayals of Philadelphia Italian-Americans of all ages, a Chinese witness, Trish’s anxious friends and mother, and Mary herself, feisty and headstrong, are perfect. Special challenges include a cell phone breaking up and an Indian youngster with learning problems.”

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joni | 2/3/2014

    " A good suspense. I can honestly say it had more twists and turns that what I was expecting. Kept me guessing until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rtopping, Ray | 2/3/2014

    " Great book. Another captivating mystery by Lisa Scottoline. The Philadephia setting and the Itilain family background adds a lot of cahracter to these books. Enjoyable and intersting read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naj Lee | 1/31/2014

    " The story is very interesting and kept me awake at night just to know who the killer is. But I guess the end is just rushed and then it just ended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy Curtis | 1/28/2014

    " This was good for an audio book - just a little too long on trying to find the missing person. I am used to listening to abridged versions, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karenzielinski | 1/20/2014

    " Great to see these characters again. Well paced and showing some great character development. I would recommend the whole series - but start at the beginning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 1/16/2014

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris | 12/31/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 12/24/2013

    " I am glad I gave this book a chance. The beginning was very basic with "high-schoolish" antics of the supporting characters. Once the book moved towards the main character solving a crime mystery it got better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb Krill | 12/22/2013

    " not a lisa scottoline I liked at all, too much fluff and not enough mystery and intrique! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 12/1/2013

    " This book was a bit silly. It was fairly repetitive and just a little too "out there" for my enjoyment. However, it was a quick and easy read if you're desperate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 11/30/2013

    " Some fun twists and turns as Mary DeNunzio goes head to head with new characters that could be right out of Jersey Shore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Honor | 6/29/2013

    " While Mary DiNunzio may be getting a bit maudlin and filled with self-doubt for my taste, it -is- awfully nice to see her (and Judy Carrier and -especially- Bennie Rosato) again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margo | 2/25/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 8/16/2012

    " An urban mystery. Little suspense. Lady Killer ends up being a funny and stylish, but almost as cozy as an Agatha Christie novel. "

    " Good listening as an audio book on a car trip - entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 3/10/2012

    " This was a book club book. It's a thriller with a slightly comic twist at times. It's the first book I've read by this author and I liked it so will be reading more of her books. If you like mysteries, give it a try. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corinne | 2/29/2012

    " As enjoyable as the other Scottoline legal thrillers. Doesn't rise to the caliber of her recent non-legal fiction, but shouldn't disappoint fans of the Risotto and Associates series. "
