Product Description

From Amazon

An Edgar Award nominee (for her first legal thriller, Everywhere That Mary Went), Lisa Scottoline actually won the Edgar for her follow-up, Final Appeal. With five legal thrillers behind her, Scottoline--a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School--has joined the league of lawyers-turned-literaries.

Her voice in Final Appeal is crisp and wry; of the law clerks in her office, the narrator declares that she's got "pantyhose with more mileage ... and better judgment."

Lawyer and single mom Grace Rossi has taken a part-time job in a federal appeals court. Her lover and boss, the chief judge, is found dead, and Rossi plays the sleuth. As her previous bestsellers, Scottoline can create feisty female characters who struggle with a variety of issues, producing a fast-paced, well-structured read.

From Publishers Weekly

This tale of corporate intrigue centers on Mary DiNunzio, a lawyer on the partner track at one of Philadelphia's top law firms, and her secret admirer/stalker. Mary, stressed by nature of her occupation, first shrugs off silent phone calls to her home and office that are eerily in sync with her comings and goings. Soon, however, when she starts getting personal notes, too, she starts to suspect her co-workers. When Brent Polk, her good friend and secretary, is killed by a car that's been following Mary around, she goads police detective Lombardo to check for similarities between his death and that of her husband a year earlier. Soon follows a chain of strange discoveries: after sleeping with friend and associate Ned Waters, she finds anti-depressants in his medicine chest; Ned's wife-beating father manages a rival law firm; a partner has been tampering with her files. An increasingly paranoid Mary cuts off relations with Ned, whom she suspects of being her stalker. But she doesn't act on her suspicions until it's nearly too late and she must fight for her life. Lawyer Scottoline's first novel is an engaging, quick read, sprinkled with corny humor and melodrama in just the right proportions.

Lisa Scottoline's first novel is quite an accomplishment. A story that is gripping and gives you clues but not in an obvious way. I was surprised until the "big revelation." The characters are not super-human. They are regular people which lends to the authentic feel.
Mary DiNuzio is a litigator on the fast track to partnership in a top lawfirm in Philly. Mary has thrown herself into her work after her husband's unexpected death. We are first endeared to Mary as she is asked to sing by a judge during a hearing. She wins the motion on her arguement but this shows her understanding of how the game is played.
She starts to get the feeling that someone is watching her. Mary starts getting notes and calls where no one speaks but is still on the phone. A suspicious car is also seen frequently as Mary goes around down. Eventually the police are called but they don't really believe her accusations.
Mary has a male secretary named Brent. He keeps her sane, safe, and on track to make partner. Mary's best friend, Judy, is also concerned about the calls, notes, and car following Mary. They work together to figure out who is sending notes to Mary and following her around in car.
There are glimpes of Mary twin sister, Angie, and her parents. A new love interest, from the lawfirm , keeps us guessing about his motives.
These characters are woven around Mary like a cocoon. The pacing of the activites are so craftly written. Watching the story unfold is like driving in traffic. Sometimes you feeling like you're moving along, the next minute you're getting cutoff, and lastly you just don't move. A wonderful mystery for those who enjoy a challange.

I was disappointed with this highly acclaimed maiden novel by Lisa Scottoline, however not so much that I won't read her sequels.
The thrill and the tension that I knew was supposed to grip me as the story developed just didn't happen. There were too many side line stories that seemed to go nowhere, as if they were there merely for padding. The main sub-plots should have concentrated on our heroine Mary's Italian immigrant parents, her male secretary, her late husband and her two or three main colleagues, associate lawyers at "Stalling & Webb" in Philadelphia. Her relationship with those key characters was well portrayed and formed a sound basis for weaving the body of the thriller around. However, the distractions of introducing so many other characters for just a page or two only seemed necessary to provide a bigger field of potential "whodunit" culprits. No, I didn't guess who did it!
The legal knowledge of author Scottoline was evident as the story unfolded and this, combined with her easy writing style, made for an enjoyable story with a surprising conclusion.

Lisa Scottoline in her debut Everywhere That Mary Went introduces feisty Mary DiNunzio of South Philadelphia. Mary is a recently widowed, soon to be made partner of a prestigious law firm. Mary is also being stalked. She is receiving prank phone calls, notes and being followed by a car. She is getting spooked and beginning to wonder if the stalker could have been the hit and run driver who killed her husband.
She has two good friends who are very interesting characters, Brent, her secretary and Judy, fellow lawyer. She also has a new love interest who she is afraid may be the stalker.
Overall the book is a well planned and paced mystery, with characters who are interesting and entertaining. Book is not deeply intellectual, but that is not why one would read a book such as this. It has good entertainment value.

someone was sure to follow. Or so it seemed to this dynamic associate attorney in a Philadelphia law firm, who suddenly starts receiving threatening notes and phone calls after the hit-and-run death of her young husband. Mary soon realizes she has a stalker - and both her life and that of her friends depends on tracking him down.
Scottoline's first book is a wonderful mystery. The characters are very vivid, especially those of Mary and her family. I also especially enjoy the way Scottoline uses the Philadelphia setting, which is very realistic and readable.
If you enjoy this book, you will also enjoy some of Scottoline's other mysteries, including Mistaken Identity and Final Appeal.

This is a terrific book and, amazingly enough, Lisa Scottoline's first novel. Ms. Scottoline has the amazing ability to write books that move at the speed of lighting and yet are filled with interesting, complicated characters.
Mary is so real that you will feel that you know her. The same is true of all the supporting characters. I've read the book twice and enjoyed it both times.
The solution to the mystery is genuinely surprising. (And I'm a seasoned mystery reader and am not often surprised.)
Be sure to read all of Ms. Scottoline's other books as well. You don't have to love mysteries to enjoy them!

While I found the book and characters well formed and entertaining, I was extremely put off by the four letter word used throughout. Most career women I have met do not talk this way. I have never used this word. I do not like to hear it much less read it. I have a very good imagination and the picture I had in my mind of this lawyer is not flattering at all. As a matter of fact, the final picture in my mind was a female with a mustache wearing a hat covering one eye, with the other eye nearly closed while smoking a cigar. There was nothing feminine about her because of her lanquage.
