Description

New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author Lisa Scottoline revolutionized crime fiction when she introduced her all-female law firm of Rosato & Associates, thrilling readers with her twisty, fast-paced plots and capturing their hearts with her cast of strong and relatable female characters. Now Bennie Rosato, Mary DiNunzio, Judy Carrier, and Anne Murphy are back with all cylinders firing in Accused.

Mary DiNunzio has just been promoted to partner and is about to take on her most unusual case yet, brought to the firm by a thirteen-year-old genius with a penchant for beekeeping. Allegra Gardner's sister Fiona was murdered six years ago, and it seemed like an open-and-shut case: the accused, Lonnie Stall, was seen fleeing the scene; his blood was on Fiona and her blood was on him; most damningly, Lonnie Stall pleaded guilty. But Allegra believes Lonnie is innocent and has been wrongly imprisoned. The Gardner family is one of the most powerful in the country and Allegra's parents don't believe in reopening the case, so taking it on is risky. But the Rosato & Associates firm can never resist an underdog. Was justice really served all those years ago? It will take a team of unstoppable female lawyers, plus one thirteen-year-old genius, to find out.

    I loved this one. I didn't know who did it, or why, until the end when the truth came out.

    Misspellings and misuse and redundant words. A bit saccharin-sweet but still a good story if you can look past the spelling and grammatical errors.

    I was very excited to read Lisa's new book. I fell in love with her books a long time ago. But this book seemed like it dragged on and then ended. It was not nearly as suspenseful as some of her other Rosato & Associates books. Not a horrible read, just think it could have been better. Sorry Lisa! I do love your books most of the time!

    I enjoyed it but thought it was too serious..unlike her other Mary books that have Lisa's trademark humor which I love. Overall it was good to have the girls from Bennie & Associates back.
