Publisher's Summary

Attorney Jack Newlin comes home one evening to find his wife dead on the floor. Convinced that he knows who killed her, and determined to hide the truth, Jack decides to make it look as though he committed the felony. Before calling the police, he stages the crime, so that the evidence incriminates him. And to hammer the final nail in his own coffin, he hires Mary Di Nunzio, a reluctant rookie and the most inexperienced lawyer he can find, at a hot Philadelphia firm. However, hiring Mary is where Jack makes his mistake.
She doubts his confession and starts to investigate the murder. Mary's ethics and instincts tell her she can't defend a man who wants only one thing, which is to convict himself. But because she is intelligent, strong-minded, and courageous, she decides to stick with the case and see it through to the final verdict. And nothing is ever certain until the final moment of truth.

Not her best

While I generally enjoy this author, there were just too many unbelievable coincidences. Not very convincing.

Believe the comments about terrible narration

I could barely make it through this book not just because of the seriously terrible plot (A person who eats hummus doesn't eat meat, and a person who eats meat doesn't eat hummus? Really?! A model can't be Catholic, and her parents get brownie points for not hating black people. Many many more examples exist for why this book flat out sucks.) but the narrator is one of the worst I've ever heard. I think she'd be okay at reading children's picture books - she's so over the top ridiculous in reading dialog, she turns the already tenuously believable characters into ear-splitting caricatures. Ugh, it was an effort to not give up though I'm kicking myself now for sticking it out, the person who you think did it, did it. I think it was supposed to be a twist, but so poorly executed as to be laughable. Save yourself and your credit! Don't do it!
