Description

In the new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline, Mary DiNunzio’s ruthless nemesis Nick Machiavelli is back...with a vengeance.

When three men announce that they are suing the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm for reverse sex discrimination—claiming that they were not hired because they were men—Mary DiNunzio and Bennie Rosato are outraged. To make matters worse, their one male employee, John Foxman, intends to resign, claiming that there is some truth to this case.

The plaintiffs’ lawyer is Nick Machiavelli, who has already lost to Mary once and is now back with a vengeance —determined not to not only win, but destroy the firm. It soon becomes clear that Machiavelli will do anything in his power to achieve his end…even after the case turns deadly. The stakes have never been higher for Mary and her associates as they try to keep Machiavelli at bay, solve a murder, and save the law firm they love…or they could lose everything they’ve worked for. Told with Scottoline's trademark gift for twists, turns, heart, and humanity, this latest thriller asks the question: Is it better to be loved, or feared...

Feared, the sixth entry in the acclaimed Rosato & DiNunzio series, expertly explores what happens when we are tempted to give in to our own inner darkness.

    Not too impressed with Feared. It was ok but not Lisa’s best work. I was really looking forward to it and paid full price. Should have waited. Not worth it.

    FEARED. Scottoline Bennie, Mary and Judy being sued, sex discrimination, not hiring males lawyers. The one they had, is murdered, who will be accused. Add to this the legal dialog of lawyers, and the case. The fun side is Mary’s family.Good plot, with a good legal case to follow, and murder, is part of a series, it can be read alone. Given ARC by Net Galley and St. Martin’s Press. For my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
