Attorney Jack Newlin comes home one evening to find his wife, Honor, dead on the floor of their elegant dining room.Convinced that he knows who killed her - and determined to hid the truth - Jack decides to make it look as though he did it. Staging the crime scene so that the evidence incriminates him, he then calls the police. And to hammer the final nail in his coffin, he hires the most inexperienced lawyer he can find, a reluctant rookie by the name of Mary Di Nunzio, employed at the hot Philadelphia firm of Rosato and Associates.

Unfortunately for Jack, hiring Mary may turn out to be his only mistake.

Though inexperienced, Mary doubts Jack's confession and begins to investigate the crime. Her ethics and instincts tell her she can't defend a man who wants only one thing - to convict himself. Or can she? Smarter, gutsier, and more determined than she has any right to be, Mary decides to stock with the case. With help from the most unexpected sources, she sets out to prove what really happened - because as any lawyer knows, a case is never as simple as it seems.

And nothing is ever certain until the final moment of truth.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CLM | 2/19/2014

    " Mary, an earnest associate in an all women law firm in Philadelphia, gets a call from a would-be client while her boss is out of town, and nervously accepts the assignment. It turns out to be a very odd case: a very attractive man who has confessed to murdering his wife and seems to want to be convicted! It is up to Mary (and some tough policemen) to help determine whether he is guilty and avoid being killed herself... "

    " I usually enjoy books by this author, but I thought this one was a real disappointment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dennis | 2/9/2014

    " This was the first book I read by Lisa Scottoline and I am so glad I have more of her books on the shelf. Her character development was great and her twists in the ending were excellant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/2/2014

    " I kind of liked her book - lots of good twists with a surprise ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mckenna | 1/31/2014

    " I cannot believe this is #5 of a series! I always start a series with #1 but I found this book on my bookshelf and noticed it was the same author of "Look Again" which I recently read and really enjoyed. I liked this book a lot also. It was about a man who confessed to killing his wife, because he thinks that his 16 year old model daughter has killed the mother. I like how the story unfolds with it's twists and turns. The author also made me really like several of the characters. I guess I'll have to go back to #1 in the series now! Geez.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ChrisGA | 1/23/2014

    " interesting police/lawyer procedural tough but fair policemen and young female lawyers investigating the death of a wealthy, ambitious woman. Was it the husband, daughter or someone else? Lots of friendly bickering between the cop partners and also between the lawyers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Hartman | 1/14/2014

    " Good book...it really kept my interest. A lot of twists and turns. Some things were a bit cheesy in it, but for the most part it was good. It was about a man who confessed to killing his wife to cover up for someone else. The 'green' lawyer he hired didn't really buy the confession, so she was trying to find the truth. Nor did the DA buy the confession...namely the reason for the murder. Nor did the detectives buy the confession. However, they all had different theories, and they all seemed to have people doubting them. Good book. "

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

    " Another Lisa Scottoline lawyer story, I would have given it a higher rating but there was too much language. Why do authors think they need it???? I didn't like the ending as much as some of her stories and it took a little too long to get there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynda | 1/9/2014

    " Excellent suspense/thriller with Mary DiNunzio handling a murder case on her own. Lots of twist and turns as to "who dun it" as well as possibly two budding romances for teh young widowed lawyer. Great story with intriquing characters. I read one book about the Rosato and Associates law firm earlier and this one is just as good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah | 12/4/2013

    " The book appeared to drag on toward the end. She has better books out there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeannie | 11/20/2013

    " I read this for my tea and murder book club, but it wasn't great. No recommendation here. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 11/17/2013

    " Not my favorite of her books. Mildly entertaining but not riveting nor worth reading a second time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 11/8/2013

    " good. Mary DiNunzio is hired because she is inexperienced in criminal. Jack frames himself for murder because he thinks his daughter killed her mother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 11/4/2013

    " I love this series of books, stupidly simple lawyer mysteries. Always fun to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terrie | 12/3/2012

    " Good, easy read. Unique murder mystery in that the author tells you on page one who the murder is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Schwartz | 10/8/2012

    " I liked this book except for the final chapters. The ending was too drawn out and had too many twists and turns. While I like not knowing "who did it" until the end, the final chapters of this book just made me want to get to the truth and be done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 9/9/2012

    " Not my favorite of her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 2/24/2012

    " Definitely not up to par with "Save Me" and "Look Again". It was very predictable and the only reason that I gave it 3 stars is because I liked the character of Brinkley. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 1/1/2012

    " Didn't know this was part of a series. Never did it refer back to any of the other books. Was able to read this without feeling I'd missed something by not reading the other 4. Found out that it was #5 when I posted it on my good reads list. Nicely done!!! "
