Summary:

In the sixth riveting thriller in #1 bestselling author Lisa Scottoline’s Rosato & Associates series, a lawyer is handed the case that could make her career—and jeopardize her life.

'Lisa Scottoline knows the simple yet magical secret at the heart of compelling suspense fiction.' — Philadelphia Inquirer

Judy Carrier takes the case of her career to defend Anthony Lucia, fondly known as 'Pigeon Tony,' who freely admits to killing his lifelong enemy in order to settle a personal vendetta. Her client's guilt, however, is only the beginning of Judy's problems. The victim's family wants revenge and is determined to finish off Pigeon Tony and Judy before the case goes to trial. Then there's Pigeon Tony's hunky grandson, who makes Judy think about everything but the law.

In a case steeped in blood and memory, it will take brains and a lot of luck to save Pigeon Tony. But if anyone will see justice done, it's this gutsy girl who will risk everything to win—including her life.

Genres:

  • Lesley Smith

    I love everything Lisa Scottoline writes! The narrator was great!!

  • Sandy S

    Wonderfully read. Your heart goes out to Pigeon Tony and at times very funny. A light read with some drama.

  • Deb D

    The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that I couldn't get the unabridged version. (please take note, SAB) This book is a prime example of L. Scottoline's best work. The characters are charming and have great heart, the antagonists induce great enmity, the twists and turns of the American legal system fascinate, and the suspense is enthralling. My only complaint is that the romance angle seemed like an afterthought. Perhaps because it was abridged.

    I like Lisa Scottoline's books. I like her all-female law firm and the crazy cases they handle. There's fashion, legal goings-on, action, a bit of romance, a tale of past wrongs, and great characterizations. The dialogue can be a little silly sometimes but generally speaking, Ms. Scottoline's lighthearted adventures are great fare for a long commute. Keep 'em coming!

  • Erica H.

    As usual, Scottoline spins a good yarn, with funny characters and amusing situations. This time, she gives us a view into Philadelphia's covey of old Italian men, from "da old country". When the murder suspect's name is "Pigeon Tony" as opposed to his friends "Tony from down the block" and "Feet", you know you're looking at some classic Scottoline humor. The book delivers what's promised - the usual murder trial with the surprise ending that makes everything OK - but not much more. Although I loved the Pigeon Tony character, this book didn't capture me as much as some of her others have somehow. So, I give it 4 stars because at her worst Scottoline's pretty darned good, just feels like this is getting awfully formulaic for her.
