Publisher's Summary

Mary DiNunzio is a trademark Lisa Scottoline heroine - she's strong, she's smart, and she's got plenty of attitude. In recent years, she's become a big-time business-getter at Rosato & Associates, but the last person she expects to walk into her office one morning - in mile-high stilettos - is super sexy Trish Gambone, her high school rival. Back then, while Mary was becoming the straight-A president of the Latin Club and Most Likely to Achieve Sainthood, Trish was the head Mean Girl, who flunked religion and excelled at smoking in the bathroom. As it turns out, however, Trish's life has taken a horrifying turn. She's terrified of her live-in boyfriend, who's an abusive, gun-toting drug dealer for the South Philly mob. There's only one problem - Mary remembers the guy from high school too. Unbeknownst to Trish, Mary had a major crush on him. Then Trish vanishes, a dead body turns up in an alley, and Mary is plunged into a nightmare, one that threatens her job, her family, and even her life. She goes on a one-woman crusade to unmask the killer, and on the way, finds new love in a very unexpected place. But before the novel's shocking surprise ending, Mary is forced to confront some very uncomfortable truths about her own past, and the profound effects of lifelong love - and hate.

Reader problem

This may not be a bad book, but I am having a hard time listening to it due to the over emotional reader. I admit that I tend to like readers that deliver the material as a read, rather than acting it out, and this book may be the text book case of a reader acting out every line. I actually have to turn this off every few minutes to let the readers interpretation get out of my brain.
My request to the reader--calm down! I'll put the story together in my head without you verbally spoon feeding me the book!
Also, I'm not Italian, but if I were, I might find the italian stereotypes in the story pretty hard to take. This makes "The Sopranoes" look like a nuanced masterpiece of italian culture....

A welcome return to Rosato and Associates

I have enjoyed all of Lisa Scottoline's books but I have to admit my favorite characters are those from the Rosato and Associates so it was great to hear from them again. I am the opposite of the other reviewer - I love Barbara Rosenblat as a reader because I enjoy the theatrical performances (each to their own!) It is great to hear all the different characters in the voices I have become accustomed to. I am so intrigued by all of Lisa Scottoline's books that I tend to read or listen to them without breaks and then I'm sad when they are over. She has a great blend of characters, suspense and humor that I greatly enjoy. "Lady Killer" was no exception. Now I have to wait another year for the next book and hopefully another return to the law firm I have grown to love.
