If you are a fan of "who done it", a current or former Philadelphia resident, and/or an attorney - especially a female, you will love this and everything written by Lisa Scottoline.
As a former resident of the City of Brotherly Love, I admire the accuracy of her descriptions of each suburb, each street in town and the attractiveness and the disrepair Ms Scottoline makes Philadelphia appear.

Scottoline has been compared to John Grisham and I can see why, because she tells a great story. However, the language is terrible. I managed to make it through this one and also tried reading "Mistaken Identify," which was so full of foul language that I decided not to finish it. Sadly I won't be reading any more of Scottoline's books.

Moment of Truth begins with what appears to be an open-and-shut case. Jack Newlin, a wealthy attorney with one of the most influential law firms in Philadelphia, killed his wife in a moment of drunken passion, stabbing her repeatedly when she announced she wanted a divorce. Or at least that is what he is claiming to the police.

The fact is, Jack is framing himself because he fears his wife's murder was his daughter's crime of passion. Sixteen-year-old Paige Newlin is a successful model whose relationship with her manager-mother had been famously rocky. To make sure that he's convicted, Jack hires rookie lawyer Mary DiNunzio to defend him. But Mary doesn't buy Jack's story, and neither does the senior detective on the case. In a fascinating turn on the usual courtroom tale, then, Jack struggles to maintain his false story of guilt while his lawyer and the police struggle to prove him innocent. Meanwhile, Mary wrestles with both her uncertainty as a lawyer and with her attraction for her client.

I thought I knew how it would end up, then I changed my mind and thought someone else did the deed, then I got lost entirely. A really good who-dun-it!

From back cover: Moment of Truth is the story of a man who frames himself for murder. When attorney Jack Newin discovers his wife dead in their elegant home, he's convinced he knows who killed her-- and is equally determined to hide the truth. He decides to take the rap, and to seal his fate he hires the most inexperienced lawyer he can find, a reluctant rookie by the name of Mary DiNunzio from the hot Philadelphia firm of Rosato & Associates.
But hiring Mary may turn out to be his biggest mistake. Mary doubts Jack's confession, and her ethics and instincts tell her she can't defend a man who wants to convict himself. Smarter, gutsier, and more persistent than she has any right to be, Mary sets out to prove what really happened--because as any lawyer knows, a case is never as simple as it seems. And nothing is ever certain until the final moment of truth.

Very good story, well written hard to put down, yet without a lot of violence. I am looking for more of Ms. Scottoline's work

A twisted tale of an attorney who framed himself for the murder of his difficult wife in order to protect his daughter. There are lots of characters who might have murdered the unpleasant woman, but the police didn't look beyond the husband's confession.
