Publisher's Summary

Whether it's poker or trial law, wisecracking Rita Morrone plays to win, especially when she takes on the defense of the Honorable Fiske Hamilton, a prominent federal judge accused of sexual harassment. And it's no coincidence that the judge is her live-in lover's father. Then the action turns deadly, and Rita finds herself at the center of a murder case. She probes deep into the murder, uncovering a secret life and suspects in shocking places. When the killer viciously ups the ante, Rita decides to end this lethal game. She lays it all on the line for the highest stakes ever: her life.

Critic Reviews

"Running From the Law is quick, witty, flavorful and absorbing. Ms. Scottoline's distinctive voice makes this book a pleasure to read, and I did so at warp speed." (Richard North Patterson, author of Degree of Guilt)
"Readers of courtroom fiction will love this latest by Scottoline." (Library Journal)

A decent mystery

I wasn't sure I would like this because I generally prefer unabridged but it was pretty good. I enjoy the author and thought this one of her better efforts. Plot twists and interesting characters make for a good story.

Not the best from Scottoline

I love Lisa Scottoline books so I was very disappointed with this one. I am drawn to her books for the excellent story line, plot twists, humor and LACK of foul language. This book didn’t meet any of those criteria. It’s the only book that I have read of hers (and I’ve read many) that I did not like at all.
