It begins with an astonishing request from a thirteen-year-old prospective client. Allegra Gardner's sister Fiona was murdered six years ago. It seemed like an open-and-shut case: the accused, Lonnie Stall, was seen fleeing the scene; his blood was on Fiona and her blood was on him; most damningly, Lonnie Stall pleaded guilty. But Allegra believes Lonnie is innocent and has been wrongly imprisoned. Taking on the case seems foolhardy to Mary DiNunzio, because the Gardner family is one of the richest and most powerful in the country and Allegra's parents do not believe in reopening this case. But the Rosato & Associates firm can never resist an underdog. Was justice really served all those years ago? It will take a team of unstoppable female lawyers, plus one thirteen-year-old genius, to find out.

I love the Rosato and Associates series and this book doesn't disappoint. It begins with Mary DiNunzio celebrating her partnership in the firm thus embarking on a new relationship between Rosato and DiNunzio. Although the ending was moderately predictable, the story line itself was interesting and kept my attention throughout. I enjoyed the narrator and felt she did a great job with the large variety of character's voices, however I would agree that I had to turn the volume down whenever Mary's father spoke.

FIRST BOOK IN Rosato & DiNunzio SERIES.

The volume of the narrator goes up so much when the deaf father speaks or children scream that you have to turn for the volume knob. The portrayal of her Italian American family seems a generation out of date and slightly racist. Also going through Mary's thought processes in figuring out who did it is annoying. She repeats "He could of done this, he could of done that," over and over to annoying lengths. I am finished with Scottoline.

This is the first "Rosato & Associates" I have "read". (I listen to books) It was thoroughly enjoyable. The reader is extremely good and continues to be one of my favourites.

Welcome back DiNunzio and Rosato. this is a fun listen with a talented reader who brings out every nuance in each character. Highly recommended as pure entertainment, as an audio book, based, mostly, on the reader.
