When you put your hands on ROUGH JUSTICE and start reading it, you'll never be able to put it away. Why? Cause you just don't think you're reading a book, but watching the best Law movie you've ever watched. The book is full of twists, action, wonderful characters that seem to be someone from your own family, and Lisa Scottoline goes beyond: she makes you laugh by the way she describe things and put sentences into people's mouth. SHE'S AN AMAZING AUTHOR! Remember the guy who you think is the best author of the genre? Forget him. Buy this book and see why I'm so in love with Lisa's books. Just don't start reading it if you have to work the next day.

This is the book that hooked me on Scottoline. Not to mention DiNuzzio and Associates :) This book is going to make you think twice about the person who pleads self defense, especially when it seems to real. Wait till you see what Mr. "Rich" thought he could do to a "nobody". You'll be irate at him and thrilled to find out the truth! Not to mention when justice is served!!!!!

Good legal mystery. In the first 2 pages a client tells his attorney that he's really guilty. the rest of the book is how she deals with it, and who proves what, and how they find the evidence.

All women lawyers at Benny Rosato's Law Office. Benny has to keep reminding her lawyers that they are paid to defend their clients. This is one of my favorite series.

During the biggest snowstorm in the history of Philadelphia, the jury is out. The defense is confident of a verdict of not guilty, but then client Elliot Steere admits to his council that he is a murderer. Marta Richter does not take this revelation happily. In fact, she's so outraged that she wants her client's secret revealed no matter what it does to her career. Steere isn't about to let her blow his chances, and with powerful connections, money, and muscle, he works from his jail cell to silence Marta and her colleagues before the sequestered jury makes a decision. If readers like soap opera?type cliffhangers at the end of each chapter, a plot that reads like a TV script, and a little gory violence here and there, they will like this book. The characters are well thought out, but most often sequences of the story unfold implausibly, as when Marta hunts for clues in her client's house and boat. Attorney Bennie Rosato, the feisty character from a previous Scottoline novel (Legal Tender, LJ 7/96), makes an appearance here but is not very involved in the plot except for a "save-the-day" routine in the last few chapters. This is essential for readers already hooked on Scottoline, but don't start with this one when introducing her to readers.

If you check out my other postings you'll see I love Lisa Scottoline's ability to plot a good mystery thriller without resorting to the blood, guts and gore genre.
