Publisher's Summary

Mary DiNunzio gets a terrifying telephone call while she's working late, then goes home to find a shadow lurking at her front door. When a lawyer close to her turns up dead, Mary begins to suspect that the case she's been working on, involving the suicide of an Italian-American in an internment camp during World War II, may not be ancient history after all.

Audible Editor Reviews

Spunky, young lawyer Mary DeNunzio becomes passionately entwined in a dusty, old estate settlement involving an Italian-American immigrant who comes to life in Mary's imagination. When an associate is murdered, Mary is convinced it's related to her case and pursues the truth against all odds. Barbara Rosenblat deftly delivers many colorful secondary characters. Her treatment of older people is especially sensitive and credible. She presents the heroine with an almost neutral voice, underplaying Mary's South Philadelphia identity. An interview with the author at the end of the recording provides entertaining insight, especially on the topic of Italian-Americans interned during WWII.

Three Cheers for Rosenblat!

I have to defend my very favorite audio reader of all time, after reading the awful reviews of 'Killer Smile.' Perhaps the producer did fall down on the job here, but I would implore listeners to try Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody series read by Rosenblat; I usually select my audible monthly choices from Rosenblat's performances. I think she has the most incredible facility with voices and accents I have ever heard...and as a performer myself, I am a great admirer of her craft!

Great book!

I've never read Scottoline before but I was impressed. The book was exciting and full of tidbits of humor. I plan to listen to it again now that I know the ending!
