Whether it’s poker or trial law, wisecracking Rita Morrone plays to win, especially when she takes on the defense of the Honorable Fiske Hamilton, a prominent federal judge accused of sexual harassment. And it’s no coincidence that the judge is her live-in lover’s father. Then the action turns deadly, and Rita finds herself at the center of a murder case. She probes deep into the murder, uncovering a secret life and suspects in shocking places. When the killer viciously ups the ante, Rita decides to end this lethal game. She lays it all on the line for the highest stakes ever—her life.

Quotes & Awards

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Sharp, intelligent, funny, and hip...[Scottoline] gives fans of legal thrillers a good, twisty plot.”

    USA Today

  • “[A] fast-paced and witty crime thriller [that] features a smart-mouthed, poker-laying attorney…Scottoline has produced a royal flush in Running from the Law.”

    San Francisco Examiner

  • “Filled with fast-paced action, tantalizing plot twists, and the unforgettable Rita, Running from the Law is a completely satisfying novel of suspense and human drama.”

    Philadelphia Inquirer

  • “Mary Higgins Clark meets Susan Isaacs meets John Grisham.”

    Philadelphia Magazine

  • “Readers of courtroom fiction will love this latest by Scottoline.”

    Library Journal

  • “The novel is more than a legal thriller. It’s also a good story about trust and relationships. The best scenes are explosive exchanges between Rita and her live-in lover, the judge’s son. Here Karen Allen’s narration is superb as she delivers each verbal blow with passion and conviction. Allen also maintains a good pace as she goes from the tension in the courtroom to the human passions outside. This is a good audio presentation, which lifts a well-crafted story to a higher level.”
