Book 1, A Rosato & DiNunzio Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 12, 2013 – Mary DiNunzio faces two daunting changes in bestseller Scottoline s intriguing 12th novel featuring the all-woman Philadelphia law firm of Rosato & Associates (after 2010 s Think Twice): she has become a partner in the firm, which affects her relationships with former fellow associates; and boyfriend Anthony Rotunno gets a lot more serious. Mary s first client as a partner is 13-year-old Allegra Gardner, who wants to retain the firm to prove that Lonnie Stall, imprisoned for the murder of Allegra s older sister, Fiona, six years earlier, is innocent and to find the real killer. Allegra may be precocious, and she has her own funds, but her wealthy parents oppose her actions directly and forcibly. Myriad legal and ethical problems complicate the case, including Stall s own confession, as does the help, wanted and unwanted, of the DiNunzio and Rotunno families. Mary follows her heart and gut into danger in this welcome series return after three stand-alones. First printing of 400,000.

Terrific Plot - One Problem with the Writing

As usual, the author has spun an "I'm on the edge of my seat" story. I really couldn't put the book down. The characters are "characters" as well. I am glad she has continued this series.

The one problem has to do with the writing. While I love the original metaphors and similes, the misuse and overuse of the conjunction and in her writing drives me crazy. Almost every page has at least one sentence where and is used instead of a more logical word (or, so ,yet, while, etc.) or where no conjunction should be used at all. A small thing, I know, but it does mar the writing.

Page turner

what a great book. I could not keep it down till I finished . The ending came rather briskly. Enjoyed it.

Great story

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