Publisher's Summary

Cate Fante is strong and smart, but when she gets appointed a federal judge, even she wonders if she can do the job justice. She's in her 30s, and she feels like she's joining the world's most exclusive retirement village. But Cate keeps her doubts a secret. And, as it happens, much else. For she leads a dark, double life that she hides from everyone. Then a high-profile case in her courtroom explodes into a shocking murder-suicide, and it blasts her cover wide open. Overnight, her new career hangs in tatters. But Cate's troubles are only beginning. An enemy no one anticipated sends her running for her life, embarking on a journey that begins in the mystery of her own childhood. She'll have to fight her way back to the truth, or die trying.
Dirty Blonde is Lisa Scottoline's most suspenseful and gripping thriller to date. Mixing poignancy with her trademark wit and wonderfully compelling characters, it questions whether law and justice are always the same thing.

What made the experience of listening to Dirty Blonde the most enjoyable?

Very well narrated!

What did you like best about this story?

I grew up in the area of Frackville and Centralia and enjoyed the accuracy in the description of the area. Story line was excellent and I couldn't stop the book until the end!

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

Would definitely listen a book narrated by Ms Rosenblat again.

Any additional comments?

This was the first Lisa Scottoline book I've experienced after watching her on "Murder by the Book" and I cannot wait to experience the next one!

Amateurish reading

While listening to this book, I marveled that this reader was paid for this performance. It was incredibly poorly done throughout, but reached bottom in the last 25 minutes when she tried to make the sounds of gunfire. I advise you to avoid this listen.
