Nothing like Scottoline's other works that feature the lawyers Benny Rosato and Mary Nunzio. This book is very good, but not as funny as those previously mentioned. More gritty, if you will. Great storyline. Offers a thread of romance with a happy ending (in that regard, Gives some of the main character's back story-a great read!

If you like Lisa Scottoline, you will like this book. I found it a bit too cutesy for my tastes, but that's just me. I've read another one by her that was better. However, if you're a Scottoline addict, I would definitely read this, as the construction of the mystery is very good with a surprise ending.

Excellent! Fast-paced and exciting as usual for Lisa Scottoline, who has been called the female John Grisham.

An interesting look at the ATF from the inside. Scottoline always has great, strong female characters, and there's a bit of romance in this as well.

I'm not real sure that any law enforcement officer or attorney would do the things that Vicki does, so it puts this into the wild imagination category. That said, it reads well.
