Thirteen-year-old Allegra Gardner is determined to bring her sister's murderer to justice. Although another man sits in jail for the crime, she is convinced of his innocence and will stop at nothing to get to the truth. His determination is what brings Allegra to Rosato & Associates, specifically to Mary DiNunzio, looking for representation. Intrigued, Mary takes the case, but she is thwarted at nearly every turn by Allegra's parents. Allegra has a trust fund and a high-profile family resolved to keep their secrets buried, even if it means sacrificing an innocent man's freedom.
VERDICT Suspense and series fans will be very pleased with Scottoline's 12th Rosato & Associates outing (after Lady Killer). [See Prepub Alert, 4/29/13.]
