Booklist Reviews

When the partners in the law firm of Rosato & DiNunzio—Bennie Rosato, Mary DiNunzio, and Judy Carrier—are served with a reverse sex-discrimination lawsuit, they're certain that the suit has been manufactured by Mary's archenemy, legal shark Nick Machiavelli. But when they stage a press conference to defend themselves, they (along with the rest of Philly) learn that their associate John Foxman has inadvertently fueled the fire by telling local attorneys that he will never make partner at Rosato & DiNunzio because he is male. Ignoring the partners' pleas, John resigns. That night, he is murdered in his apartment, and Judy, who had been secretly dating John for months, becomes the prime suspect. She, after all, was the last person to see him alive, and his neighbors report that they argued loudly all evening. Mary takes Judy's case, skillfully working her South Philly connections in an effort to uncover Machiavelli's plot and exonerate her best friend. Series fans and newcomers alike will revel in the partners' fierce loyalty, served up with an endearingly humorous slice of South Philly family life. A sure bet for legal-thriller fans. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The 400,000 announced market distribution will ensure that the latest in this wildly popular series gets quickly into the hands of a devoted readership.
