Mary DiNunzio is strong, smart, and she's got plenty of attitude. In recent years, she's become a big-time business-getter at Rosato & Associates, but the last person she expects to walk into her office is Trish Gambone, her high school rival. Trish's life has taken a horrifying turn. She's terrified of her live-in boyfriend, who's an abusive, gun-toting drug dealer for the South Philly mob. There's only one problem—Mary remembers the guy, too, and had a major crush on him.
Before Mary knows it, Trish vanishes. Then a dead body turns up in an alley, and Mary is plunged into a nightmare. She goes on a one-woman crusade to unmask the killer, and on the way, finds new love in a very unexpected place. But before the novel's shocking surprise ending, Mary is forced to confront some very uncomfortable truths about her own past, and the profound effects of lifelong love—and hate.

Scottoline and Rosenblat team up to bring us another suspenseful mystery featuring Philadephia lawyer Mary DiNunzio. Mary's high school nemesis, Trish, hires her to deal with her abusive husband and then disappears. The husband, once Mary's lover, then turns up dead. Barbara Rosenblat could not have read this any better--her portrayals of Philadelphia Italian-Americans of all ages, a Chinese witness, Trish's anxious friends and mother, and Mary herself, feisty and headstrong, are perfect. Special challenges include a cell phone breaking up and an Indian youngster with learning problems. Scottoline usually ends her scenes with an attention-grabbing sentence. Rosenblat emphasizes these by inserting long pauses to heighten suspense. An enlightening author interview concludes this superb listening experience. J.B.G.
