Duration: 5 hours 28 minutes

Summary:

To Philadelphia lawyer Grace Rossi, who's starting over after a divorce, a part-time job with a federal appeals court sounds perfect. But Grace doesn't count on being assigned to an explosive death penalty appeal. Nor does she expect ardor in the court in the form of an affair with her boss, Chief Judge Armen Gregorian. Then the truly unimaginable happens and Grace finds herself investigating a murder.

As Grace searches for the truth, she unearths a six-figure bank account kept by the judge with an alias; breaks into another judge's chambers; and follows a trail of bribery and judicial corruption that's stumped even the FBI. In no time at all, Grace under fire takes on a whole new meaning.

    While the story line was good, Kate Burton, as a reader, was TERRIBLE. She read far too quickly, in a panicked monotone and made the story difficult to listen to. I don't think I'll listen to anything else she's read!

  • Deb D

    Except for a couple of colorful law clerks, I found this book by LS to be relatively shallow. Her other work, especially when it involves the Italian Amercian community, has more depth of character, which makes it a more engaging read (listen). However, it is a good light diversion.

    Let me start by saying I like Kate Burton's stuff. This isn't the usual female law firm story though and I didn't like the main character all that much. She seemed weak and gullible. And then dumb. The rest of the multitude of characters were enjoyable if a bit on the cliche side. I'd have liked this better if the main characters had some significant character flaws, but in this world only the bad guys are bad and they are very bad. The action moves right along so you won't be bored... Worth a listen.

    Lisa Scotioline once again has been able to keep you rivetted to your seat. Her writting style keeps one going back for more.

    Somewhat predictable but kept me engaged (perhaps b/c I wanted to find out if I was right.)
