THE VENDETTA DEFENSE – VG
Lisa Scottoline – Stand alone(?)
Attorney Judy Carrier, member of the Rosato law firm, is asked by her best friend's father to defend his friend, Anthony Lucia, known throughout their South Philadelphia neighborhood as 'Pigeon Tony,' who is on trial for the murder of Angelo Coluzzi. However, Judy isn't prepared for a confession that Tony did, in fact, commit the crime—the result of a generations-old family feud that has spanned two continents. Judy need to find a way that this feud can help to defend Pigeon Tony, while beginning a relationship with his grandson.

This has a bit of everything; humor, suspense, delightful characters, romance, history, pathos, and good courtroom scenes. Scottoline has had a couple misses for me, but this was not one of them. This was a definite 4-hour read.
