Publisher's Summary

Bennie Rosato, the founder of the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm, hides her big heart beneath her tough-as-nails exterior, and she doesn't like to fail. Now a case from her past shows her how differently things might have turned out.
Thirteen years ago, Bennie Rosato took on Jason Leftavick, a 12-year-old boy who was sent to a juvenile detention center after fighting a class bully. Bennie couldn't free Jason, and to this day it's the case that haunts her. Jason has grown up in and out of juvenile prison, and his adulthood hasn't been any easier. Bennie no longer represents those accused of murder, but when Jason is indicted for killing the same bully he fought with as a kid, she sees no choice but to represent him. She doesn't know whether or not to believe his claims of innocence, but she knows she owes him for past failures - of the law, of the juvenile justice system, and of herself. Forced to relive the darkest period of her life, Bennie will do everything in her power to get the truth - and justice.

Great book!

I found this book to be entertaining and absolutely worth the listen!! When a book grabs me at the beginning and doesn't let go, I consider it to be worthy of my time. And I was wrapped up in the characters' lives so quickly in Corrupted! The manner in which legal procedures are expounded upon in this book were so very accurate, in my opinion. It seems the criminal court rules are very similar in Pennsylvania to my home state of Tennessee. I am not an attorney, but a court stenographer for 23 years, and I was pleased that what I was hearing in this book was very close to what I have actually heard in the courtroom and understand to be the rules of criminal procedure. Sometimes courtroom scenes are so far-fetched, I often have trouble believing that those things could actually happen in a courtroom. But not in this book. It is spot on and I was greatly pleased with this book. Sometimes when I read reviews that people have written, I am amazed that so many people could feel so differently about one book. If I read 20 reviews that are good ones, there's always going to be one or two or three people who say it's terrible. So I generally don't write reviews because I am so skeptical when I read the reviews that are submitted. But I love this book, and if you like a good mystery and something beyond that -- can't put my finger on it, but just suffice to say "something beyond that" then you should listen to this book

Terrific

Would you listen to Corrupted again? Why?

Yes it was so riveting and held my attention I could not stop listening therefore I want to listen a little slower so as not to miss a thought or word.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Bennie. She was so real I thought I was there in court


What does Kate Burton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brought the words alive and real.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!


Any additional comments?

I loved Lisa's books in the beginning, being Italian, I love the family characters. Then her books lost my interest and I was very disappointed in her writings, however, with this book it like she came alive again and is back on top of my list and can't wait for her next book.
