A stunning legal thriller, Rough Justice, by Edgar Award winner Lisa Scottoline, breaks new ground in fiction's hottest genre and launches a riveting series featuring the adventures of an all-woman law firm.

As Rough Justice opens, criminal lawyer Marta Richter is only hours away from winning an acquittal on a murder charge leveled against her client, millionaire businessman Elliot Steere. But as the jury begins to deliberate, Steere lets it slip that he sold Marta a bogus self-defense claim and that he in fact murdered the homeless man he claimed tried to carjack him. Infuriated, Marta sets out to find the evidence that will convict Steere before the jury returns with its verdict.

During the worst blizzard Philadelphia has ever seen, Marta drafts help in the form of two able-bodied young lawyers -- Mary DiNunzio and Judy Carrier -- from the all-female firm Rosato & Associates. Enter Benedetta-Bennie? Rosato, managing partner of Rosato & Associates. When she realizes that Marta is determined to convict her own client -- and ruin the law firm in the process -- Bennie acts to thwart Marta's plans and bring Steere to justice in her own way. But even from his jail cell, the businessman has the cunning and connections to kill again. The lawyers have finally met their match in Elliot Steere. Or have they?

    " One of the best books I've read in a long time! Lisa grabbed you in the first paragraph and didn't let you go until the last page. Great cast of strong, determined women who would not rest until justice was served. This will be one of my all-time favorite books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edie | 12/9/2013

    " I was so cold while reading this book! All you have to do is have fictional characters butt deep in snow and *I* freeze my tail off reading their adventures! Good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daniel Stallings | 6/19/2013

    " The characters and story line was great. The writing left a lot to be desired. The constant use of the "f" word took away from me giving any higher rating. If you took the "f" word out of this book, I bet it would cut 100 pages off the length. "

    " Meh.... Had few and far between moments. Way too much bullshit!!! Sorry no other way to say it. Way too much going on and no reason for it. It is like a soap opera playing out. Geez! Onto the next book in the series. Cross your fingers it will get better for me!!! PLEASE!!!! "
