Scottoline's returned to her roots -- to the crisp, snappy stuff she started off, and lured me in, with. If you've been turned off lately by the Rosato & Associates saga, which was getting to sound like a bad mix of soap opera and "Cagney & Lacey," come back for this one. Bennie and the Airheads don't show up at all.

Scottoline is a master of the "humorous self realization" but cuts them back to write a gritty story of her old neighborhood which has gone from bad to pure urban blight. It is thrilling, touching, but much more serious than some of her other books which are practically light hearted with humor. There is budding romance for those who like that. The writer / narrator is always engaging to TRUE Scottoline fans. (Those who don't hate Rosenblatt's "performance" style or the few mouth noises not edited out). (People can be so prissy about such things.) This is Scottoline at her most serious and she is still fun and very entertaining.
