The only surprise is how her grandmother died. The rest is standard corruption, take out the whistle blowers, get to court before they kill you. It is an interesting time-passer, but nothing new or different.
Story errors: 1) police do not put out an APB on an adult because you miss an appointment. They always say that adults are allowed to do what they want, and you must wait at least 24 hours before they will act. 2) Los Angeles temperatures are not 80 degrees in the day and then frosty breath in the morning.
The only redeeming thing from the story is the empathy the main character develops towards street people, and towards her uncle.
The narrator is quite good 80% of the time. The other 20% is hair-pulling annoying emphasis on the wrong words. You are supposed to stress the important words in a sentence; she might hit one and then slide down the rest of the sentence, or not hit the right word at all. For example, her intonation went down from "LEANING against the doorframe" (with "doorframe" so inconsequential as to be unnecessary) instead of "LEANING against the DOORframe."
I probably wouldn't bother with other books by author or narrator.

Proof is book 2 in the attorney Caroline Auden legal thriller series by C.E. Tobisman. When Caroline's grandmother dies a recent handwritten will is discovered leaving her entire estate including family keepsakes to a "charitable organization" for whom her most recent caregiver worked. When Caroline investigates she finds that the organization is all about making money for its owner by encouraging the elderly to leave their estates to them. The persons who hand write their wills seem to always die soon after. There is not a lot of action in Proof but there is suspense. The story itself has interesting characters and is very well told. Narration is excellent.
