Lisa Scottoline, the national bestselling author of Mistaken Identity and Moment of Truth, delivers a taut and intriguing legal thriller where the line between lawyer and client vanishes and the search for justice turns into a fight to the death.

Benedetta "Bennie" Rosato may be tall, blonde, and built to last, but she's no sucker for a man in uniform. She's a maverick lawyer who prosecutes police misconduct and excessive-force cases, and business at her firm of Rosato & Biscardi apart. All of the evidence points to Bennie, and the cops she once prosecuted are now after her with a vengence.

To prove her innocence, Bennie probes deep into the murder. Just as she closes in on the killer, another murder takes place, and Bennie finds herself indicted for a double homicide -- a crime that is puishable by death.

Bennie runs for her life, a fugitive armed only with her wits and her courage. She'll find the real killer. Or die trying.

    " I like Lisa Scottoline for the insider feel of her books with little details of lawyerdom. That said, this book is terribly dated. There is a computer whiz (hidden files!) and closeted BFF (Giiirrlfriend!). Many *wince* moments. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa Currier | 10/27/2011

    " Just an okay mystery. Lot's of running around, no clear motive and a big ta-da finish. Not alot of character development, but lots of twists. Again, just an okay read. "

    " One of a series of thrillers set in Philadelphia and starring attorney Bennie Rosato. Once again, I'm reading a series all out of order. This is an early one (#2) I believe and gave me lots of background for books I've read that fall later in the series. Solidly entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 4/1/2011

    " Great writing style...not as predictable as most books in this gentre...but still too many f-words. I find the use of that word jarring in the text. "

    " This was a page-turner all the way through. Bennie got deeper and deeper in the midst of murders and you couldn't imagine how she was going to get out of all it and clear her name. Loved this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/1/2011

    well written and interesting
    good writer
    worth your time "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 11/21/2010

    " easy to read but not her best "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacia | 8/31/2010

    " I enjoyed this book. It really kept me interested. I kept reading because I couldn't wait to see what happened next. I learned quickly that the person that "did it" is usually one of the least expected in Lisa Scottoline's books so I couldn't wait to find out who it was. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jean | 8/28/2010

    " OK pool side read. May try another Scottoline book based on the reaction from the other reviews. In this story, Bennie, the lawyer-heroine, had quite the smart mouth when faced with a murder accusation- guess that's what makes her a popular read but I found her attitude rather irritating. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 AJ | 7/21/2010

    " I like Lisa Scottoline for the insider feel of her books with little details of lawyerdom. That said, this book is terribly dated. There is a computer whiz (hidden files!) and closeted BFF (Giiirrlfriend!). Many *wince* moments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 6/30/2010

    " Somehow Scottoline has me believing every action and event in this story, even as they add up to something a bit over the edge of general believability. Bennie Rosato is enough of a bigger-than-life character that it works. Scottoline is a damn good writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 5/1/2010

    " I really enjoyed this, the first book by Lisa Scottoline I've read. I liked the protagonist, the story, the suspense, and the humor. Looking forward to the next Bennie Rosato mystery, where we meet the "evil twin." "
