Publisher's Summary

A battle for justice pits partner against partner....
Mary DiNunzio wants to represent her old friend Simon Pensiera, a sales rep who was wrongly fired by his company, but her partner, Bennie Rosato, represents the parent company. When she confronts Mary, explaining this is a conflict of interest, an epic battle of wills and legal strategy between the two ensues - ripping the law firm apart, forcing everyone to take sides, and turning friend against friend.
Sometimes loyalty can be lethal...but the truth will inevitably be exposed.
The newest heart-stopping audiobook from Lisa Scottoline's popular series drops listeners right into the charged atmosphere of a volatile courtroom drama.

I have followed this series and the Rosato and Associate series from the beginning. The first series was about Bennie Rosato. Mary DiNunzio, Judy Carrier and Anne Murphy were hired later on; then Mary and Bennie became partners. Lately the books featured Mary, but in this book Scottoline features almost equally DiNunzio and Rosato.

Mary’s clients come primarily from South Philly amongst the Italian population and are small businesses and individuals. Bennie primarily has corporations as her clients and is mostly a constitutional lawyer. Simon Pensiara, who Mary has known all her life, comes in to hire Mary with his father, the other Tony and Mary’s father. Simon was fired from his job because his daughter needed a bone marrow transplant for leukemia. The company is self-insured and the child’s illness is costing too much. Bennie informs Mary she cannot take the case because Bennie represents the parent corporation of Simon’s company. It is a conflict of interest. Mary says she has to take the case or lose her local clients. Then Simon is accused of murdering his prior boss. Bennie and Mary join together to solve the murder. But will this be the end of the Rosato and DiNunzio law firm?

The book is well written and provides insights into the workings of a law firm. The plot twists and turns as the suspense continuously builds. The ending of the book is a surprise. The interaction between Bennie and Mary brings up issues of the nature of partnerships, loyalty and individual responsibilities. The book provides entertainment but also some interpersonal relationship issues to think about.

The book is almost nine hours long. Kate Burton does an excellent job narrating the book. Burton has narrated many of the books in both series. I enjoy listening to Burton’s great alto voice. Burton is an actress and award-winning audiobook narrator. Burton is the daughter of Richard Burton.

Great series

I like hearing about Mary and Bennie's adventures, and Lisa Scottoline never disappoints. There are plenty plot twists. Kate Burton, as always gives a wonderful performance bringing all the characters to life. I recommend this book to thriller/mystery fans.
