New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline delivers a knockout stand-alone thriller featuring a young federal prosecutor who risks her life to bring down the kingpin of a conspiracy responsible for murders in West Philly.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Vicki Allegretti goes to meet a confidential informant and finds herself facing a loaded 9 mm Glock semiautomatic weapon, wielded by a panicky teenager. Violence is the last thing this neophyte lawyer expects. The case is easy, the kind given to new ADAs to help them cut their teeth. Yet almost before she has time to react, her partner is dead, shot in the chest.

From that high-octane introduction to her job, Vicki vows to continue with the case, protect her informant, and find the shadowy figure behind the death of her partner. This decision will take her to the depths of the federal detention center’s “bowl,” to a row house on the street where she grew up, and to the posh suburbs where her parents now live. Set against the gritty backdrop of a modern American city and imbued with Lisa Scottoline’s trademark style and wit, Cater Street is the story of a determined young lawyer seeking justice.

The story was good but it was ruined for me by the REALLY bad narration.

The story line was good but the narrators representation of the African American characters in the book set my teeth on edge. I was very offended that the black female character described a bright, intelligent, and college educated was represented in a voice similar to the black butler in the old Shirley Temple movies. The only African American in the story who was well spoken was the crazy murdering police chief. I did not like the narration of this story at all. The narration hampered a very good story line and othewise enjoyable story.

I am a huge Lisa Scottoline fan and, being from eastern Pennsylvania, I enjoy her Philadelphia setting because I can relate to many of the locations. This book is a good mystery with strong female leads, which is also classic Scottoline. I could relate to Vicki, but I must admit that I miss Bennie, Judy, and Mary from the Rosato law firm. The narrator of this audio book is Barbara Rosenblatt who gives voice to Stephanie Plum, et. al., in Janet Evanovich's series. I was a bit annoyed that the men sounded like Joe and Ranger, the black female character sounded like Lula, and Vickie sounded like Stephanie. I think she could have changed it up a bit. At times I forgot what book I was listening to.

The narrator sounded like they were chewing gum or had a massive amount of saliva in her mouth. It was distracting to listen to while trying to understand the plot line .

Typical Scottoline -- an attractive young heorine in a dangerous position. A lot of highly unlikely situations and danger, but in the end, all works out. Of course, not quite the way you think it might, but at least you know you'll get a satisfactory conclusion. This one's a little more far-fetched than others but still interesting and worth a listen.
