BOOK REVIEW

EXPOSED by Lisa Scottoline
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 15, 2017

"Despite some overheated damsel-in-distress complications toward the end, a stellar demonstration of the proposition that although it can't bring back the dead, 'justice was still the best consolation prize going.' The final curtain will find you cheering, and Scottoline will have earned every hurrah."
Rosato & DiNunzio, Philadelphia's most drama-ridden law firm (Damaged, 2016, etc.), faces perhaps its most dramatic episode ever when it's threatened from both outside and in. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

LADY KILLER by Lisa Scottoline
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 12, 2008

"As usual in Scottoline's recent cases, the opening movement is the best. This time, the half-hearted mystery is upstaged by Mary's pleasantly unlikely romance."
Philadelphia's favorite all-female law firm is back with a case that poses refreshingly little danger to life, limb or professional ethics. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

DEAD RINGER by Lisa Scottoline
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 1, 2003

"Less synthetic than the last outing for Rosato & Associates, but just as fast-moving: a salute to heroines who've sworn off swearing but are 'tired of saying damn all the time. It just didn't go far enough.'"

BOOK REVIEW

MOMENT OF TRUTH by Lisa Scottoline
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: March 1, 2000

"Scottoline's women (Mistaken Identity, 1999, etc.)—well-crafted and appealing—have always been an unfailing strength. Not here, though. Mary seems mailed in, a stick figure who isn't much help in making unlikely things credible."
An unpersuasive legal thriller about a man crying mea culpa everywhere and getting the same response as Chicken Little. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

COME HOME by Lisa Scottoline
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: April 10, 2012

"Connoisseurs of mother love imperiled will prefer Save Me (2011). But it would be a mistake to count Scottoline out; she's sure to be back next year with another dose that might be even more potent."
Another stand-alone suspenser that rams home the point that there's no such thing as an ex-mother. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

BOOK REVIEW

CORRUPTED by Lisa Scottoline
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 27, 2015
