This was my first experience with the author Lisa Scottoline, and I really enjoyed it. Her books take place at an all-female law firm in Philly, so it was neat to read descriptions of neighborhoods and landmarks in my own city. In this novel, young attorney Mary DiNunzio is assigned to defend Jack Newlin - a wealthy lawyer who has framed himself for the murder of his wife. Newlin has assumed that his daughter committed the murder and is lying to protect her from prison. From there, the plot takes lots of twists and turns involving the family's estate, the daughter's boyfriend, Newlin's prestigious law firm, the detectives assigned to the case, and more. My only complaint is that the plot may take a few too many twists and turns to be really believable, but I never lost interest.
