When soccer mom Liz Barone is attacked in her kitchen and left with a life-threatening injury, Fina Ludlow is hired by Liz's mother to identify her attacker. It's unusual for Fina to take a case that isn't connected to the family firm, Ludlow and Associates, but Liz was in the process of suing her alma mater, New England University - a suit that could be a legal gold mine.
Twenty years earlier, Liz was an NEU soccer star known for her physical toughness; however, a serious cognitive decline has soured her soccer memories. She's convinced that her aggressive style of play - and the university's willingness to ignore head injuries in favor of a win - has put her health and her future in jeopardy, and someone needs to be held responsible.
Was Liz attacked to stop her lawsuit, or were there other secrets in the seemingly innocent woman's life? Fina convinces her father and boss, Carl, to take the case and discovers that wading into the financially lucrative and emotionally charged world of collegiate sports requires nerves of steel. As the list of suspects grows and hidden agendas are revealed, Fina wonders if any game is worth the price.

Great addition to the series
I have now read all three books in the series and have enjoyed them all immensely. This is the first one I have listened to on audiobooks and I thought the narrator did a pretty good job capturing both voices and personalities of all the characters.
The story is fast paced and kept me interested throughout. If you are interested In these books I would definitely recommend reading the first two books before reading this one.

Listening was Brutal
I liked 90% of Brutality, unfortunately the other 10% was too annoying for words.
Private Investigator Fina Ludlow was smart, funny, relentless and devoted to her clients & most of her extended family. The mystery was well written & creative.
Sadly, Fina eats the worst diet imaginable (described in great detail) and takes too much crap from her parents and 1 brother. It's painful and detracts from the rest of the book.
