Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling and Edgar Award-winning author Lisa Scottoline revolutionized crime fiction when she introduced her all-female law firm of Rosato & Associates, thrilling listeners with her twisty, fast-paced plots and capturing their hearts with her cast of strong and relatable female characters. Now Bennie Rosato, Mary DiNunzio, Judy Carrier, and Anne Murphy are back with all cylinders firing in Accused.
Mary Dinuzio has just been promoted to partner and is about to take on her most unusual case yet, brought to the firm by a thirteen-year-old genius with a penchant for beekeeping. Allegra Gardner's sister Fiona was murdered six years ago, and it seemed like an open-and-shut case: the accused, Lonnie Stall, was seen fleeing the scene; his blood was on Fiona and her blood was on him; most damningly, Lonnie Stall pleaded guilty.
But Allegra believes Lonnie is innocent and has been wrongly imprisoned. The Gardner family is one of the most powerful in the country and Allegra's parents don't believe in reopening the case, so taking it on is risky. But the Rosato & Associates firm can never resist an underdog. Was justice really served all those years ago? It will take a team of unstoppable female lawyers, plus one thirteen-year-old genius, to find out.

A "chick" legal thriller

Considering the degree to which Accused deals with relationships most people would likely believe women are the audience, a "chick" book. Despite being male, I enjoyed the book. The plot is about a lawyer attempting to free an innocent man convicted of murder. The relationships between the characters are thoroughly explored and are quite interesting. There are two interesting twists near the end that add to the story. RECOMMENDED!

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Narrator was poor!

I have enjoyed the Rosato and Associates series and was pleased to see a new edition out. Mary is made partner and has accepted Anthony's wedding proposal. This is one book that I think I would have enjoyed more if I had read it rather than listened to it. Although there was always humor in the series, the women were professionals and acted accordingly. This narrator has such a juvenile, excited voice for women that I was continually having to ignore her voice to get any enjoyment out of the story. The women sounded like little girls rather than the professionals they are. I come from an enthic family where half of the family is deaf so everyone speaks loudly to be heard over everyone else. However, the author shouting with two of the older Italian characters, one Mary's father and the other a long-time neighbor, I found very difficult and demeaning to them as loving, colorful individuals. Being hard of hearing myself and from a family with hearing problems, I know our voices may be louder than a soft-spoken person but we do not yell. My advise to catch up on what is happening in the Rosato law firm is to read the book rather than listen to the audible version. Audible, please find another narrator for series.
