New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline delivers a riveting page-turner about sex and murder, which starts in the elite chambers of a sexy female judge and ends on the cold, gritty streets of Philadelphia.
Cate Fante is strong and smart, but when she gets appointed a federal judge, even she wonders if she can do the job justice. She's in her thirties, and she feels like she's joining the world's most exclusive retirement village. But Cate keeps her doubts a secret. And, as it happens, much else. For she leads a dark, double life that she hides from everyone.
Then a high-profile case in her courtroom explodes into a shocking murder-suicide, and it blasts her cover wide open. Overnight, her new career hangs in tatters. But Cate's troubles are only beginning. An enemy no one anticipated sends her running for her life -- embarking on a journey that begins in the mystery of her own childhood. She'll have to fight her way back to the truth, or die trying.
Dirty Blonde is Lisa Scottoline's most suspenseful and gripping thriller to date. Mixing poignancy with her trademark wit and wonderfully compelling characters, it questions whether law and justice are always the same thing.

Scottoline's heroine, Philly Federal Court Judge Cate Fante, is a challenging character for any actress to undertake. Kate Burton is the perfect match for this dark and emotional woman, whose ruling in a notorious case of intellectual property theft, murder, and suicide puts her own life in jeopardy. On the personal side, her secret pastime of picking up men for one-night stands threatens her career. Burton deftly controls the breathless action, including a hot-and-heavy motel encounter with a lover. Burton sounds tough when she needs to be but easily softens into a caring-sounding woman. This isn't the first time out for the Scottoline-Burton duo. We can only hope it won't be the last. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
