A lackluster offering. The only thing memorable was when someone drove a car up the courthouse steps. It was unintentionally funny. Sad mostly.

Only reason this is being reviewed is that I was reading this when we ruled the wastelands.

I am really loving this series about the all female law firm of Rosato and Associates even though I did get started by reading the most current book and have now gone back to read the earlier stories. Each one features either a story about Bennie Rosato or Mary DiNunzio, lawyers in Philadelphia. Of course their associate Judy Carrier is in each book (Mary's best friend). I often find Mary to be an idiot and she gets tiresome with the Catholic guilt and her cowardice.

Bennie is content and happy

The author is a lawyer, main character, Bennie, is a lawyer. She is cold and pretty unlikable. Too tough. This book is about her family, dying mother, missing father, twin sister she didn't know she had. Plot is a little hard to follow. Lots of vague references and very little detail. Bennie learns that family isn't about blood connections but about commitment, love, blah blah blah. Her real family is her boyfriend, her dog, and her staff.

This is another of Lisa Scottoline's novels about Bennie Rosato and her all-woman law firm, and is a prequel of sorts to Dead Ringer, which I had already read, inasmuch as this is the book in which Bennie finds out that she has a twin sister--who happens to be coming up for trial on a murder case and wants to hire Bennie to represent her. Part of the issue is that Bennie is not all that sure that the woman in question, Alice Connolly, really is her sister, and another part is that Bennie becomes ...more

Scottoline's books are getting stronger as I go along! The reader is reunited with Bennie, Judy and Mary, and a few other new characters (Lou!) join in on the fun.

Like her other books, there are lots of twists and turns, including possible twins, police corruption, newly discovered fathers, and grizzly deaths.

This is an interesting story about twins-the good one and the bad one. In this story, Bennie Rosato, is asked to defend a woman accused of murdering her lover. The problem is that the accused killer may be Bennie's twin. As in the past, the story centers on corrupt policemen, as Bennie and her all female law firm, rush to develop the case for Alice Connolly. The story has the ups and downs of a rollercoaster, as Bennie's mother dies, and as Bennie's father enteres her life. The huge question is ...more
All right! I admit it... I listened to an abridged version of this book, simply because there does not seem to be an unabridged audio version, and I had to listen to it so I could knit. Unlike the last book I read Kisscut by Karin Slaughter, this one was pretty light. I also liked the narrator a lot better than the one reading Kisscut if only because she just fit better. Just what I needed after Kisscut <><

A legal thriller with an interesting twist...The lawyer, Bennie Rosato, has to defend her twin sister that she did not know existed before this trial. Set in Philadelphia, PA with action spanning the court room, prison, and the streets.
I've read almost all of Lisa Scottoline's book--and loved them for the fast pacing and twists--but this one just dragged. I forced myself to get to the end (a nagging question I yearned to find the answer to) but not without skipping a few chapters.
(3.5) Awesome in the begginning, but I kind of lost focus during the end...
