Duration: 2 hours 40 minutes
Lisa Scottoline, the national bestselling author of Mistaken Identity and Moment of Truth, delivers a taut and intriguing legal thriller where the line between lawyer and client vanishes and the search for justice turns into a fight to the death.
Benedetta "Bennie" Rosato may be tall, blonde, and built to last, but she's no sucker for a man in uniform. She's a maverick lawyer who prosecutes police misconduct and excessive-force cases, and business at her firm of Rosato & Biscardi apart. All of the evidence points to Bennie, and the cops she once prosecuted are now after her with a vengence.
To prove her innocence, Bennie probes deep into the murder. Just as she closes in on the killer, another murder takes place, and Bennie finds herself indicted for a double homicide -- a crime that is puishable by death.
Bennie runs for her life, a fugitive armed only with her wits and her courage. She'll find the real killer. Or die trying.
