Publisher's Summary

In the second thrilling novel in New York Times best-selling author Lisa Scottoline's Rosato & Associates series, a successful lawyer now finds herself on the opposite side of the bench when she's framed for murder.

Benedetta "Bennie" Rosato is a maverick lawyer who prosecutes police misconduct and excessive-force cases, and business at her firm has never been better.

Then, without warning, a savage murder tears the firm apart. All evidence points to Bennie, who has motive aplenty and an unconfirmable alibi. Her world turns upside down as the lawyer becomes the client and the cops she once prosecuted are now after her with a vengeance.

To prove her innocence, Bennie probes deep into the murder. Then another killing takes place. Running for her life, Bennie is a fugitive armed only with her wits and courage. She will find the real killer - or die trying.

Kept me going on a 7 hour drive from Ohio to MD!

Interesting turns and twists... I must have missed some books as I was unaware of Mark's partnership with Bennie, but that just gives me more to look forward to.

Lisa Scottoline never disappoints

Fast-paced and exciting, I did not want to stop listening, even when I had to for one reason or another. I strongly recommend this audible book.

Good story, narrator was rough

I like this author a lot and the story was a good one, although I had a hard time with the narrator. The narrator's tone was very intense and she kept the same tone throughout most of the book, it made it quite difficult to enjoy.

Completely hooked on this series

The Bennie Rosato books are so much fun. This one was clever, exciting, and even though it was written quite a while ago, it's still so relevant. I love her style of writing and the narrator is perfect in being Bennie. I can't wait for the next one.

Legal Tender

Always enjoyable. Legal Tender took me on and adventure. I admit I was confused between rowing and running. It was a race to keep up. If only I had Benie's energy!
