OrangeReviewStarBennie Rosato, founder of a Philadelphia law firm, takes on a case that threatens to unravel her tough-as-nails exterior as it brings her past sharply into focus. Jason Leftavick has asked her to represent him, for the second time. The first time was 13 years ago, when he was 12, and the events that led to her dismissal from the case still hurt deeply. Now Jason is a grown man and has been convicted of first-degree murder. Determined to right the wrongs of the past, Bennie dives into the case, trying desperately to prove Jason's innocence. She also discovers that time doesn't always heal old wounds. Corruption and lies tainted her relationship with her client the first time, and history might be repeating itself. Despite her misgivings, and the arrival of an old flame, Bennie is determined to do right by Jason, even if it destroys her in the process.
VERDICT : Scottoline's third entry (after Betrayed) in her "Rosato & DiNunzio" series does not disappoint. Fans will be on the edge of their seats eager to discover what happens next. [See Prepub Alert, 5/15/15.]
