Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Philadelphia attorney Mary DiNunzio, last seen in Killer Smile (2004), agrees to help her high school nemesis, Trish Gambone, at the start of this less than convincing thriller from bestseller Scottoline. Trish, whom Mary used to regard as the quintessential Mean Girl, has turned in desperation to the lawyer, the all-around Most Likely to Achieve Sainthood at St. Maria Goretti High School, because she wants to escape from her abusive, and possibly Mafia-connected boyfriend, Bobby Mancuso. Trish rejects Mary's practical suggestions for dealing with Bobby, but once Trish disappears, Mary finds herself under pressure from other high school classmates as well as people from her old neighborhood who blame her for not doing enough. Mary unwisely hides a connection with Bobby from the Feds, who then shut her out of the search for Trish when they learn of it. Scottoline fans will cheer Mary as she stumbles toward the solution, but others may have trouble suspending disbelief. (Feb.)

Product Description

Mary DiNunzio has 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 when 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.

These days, however, Trish needs help. She is terrified of her live-in boyfriend, an abusive, gun-toting drug dealer for the South Philly mob. Mary remembers the guy from high school, too. She had a major crush on him.

Then Trish vanishes, a dead body turns up in an alley, and Mary is plunged into a nightmare 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.

Format: Hardcover
Don't miss this book!

Mary DiNunzio is my favorite Lisa Scottoline heroine. I was thrilled to find that she was back as the narrator of Lady Killer . . . and was even happier when I found what a wonderful story Ms. Scottoline had crafted around this delightful character.

Lady Killer is a term that usually refers to a man who wows women . . . even against their better judgment. As the book opens, there's a different meaning. Heart-throb Bobby Mancuso has been hooked up with Trish Gambone since high school, but he's turned into a drug-dealing, connected villain who continually threatens Trish's health and safety. Now he's threatening to kill Trish.

Based on being acquainted in high school, Trish comes to see Mary seeking safety from being killed. Mary proposes legal alternatives . . . none of which appeal to Trish. That's where matters would have ended, except that Trish and Bobby go missing that night. Mary gets the blame from Trish's friends and family, and Mary digs in to see what she can do. The cops aren't very interested and Mary finds herself turning detective.

Life is more complicated than this sounds. Mary's legal practice is booming, and she has to ignore the rest of her clients to help Trish. This annoys virtually everyone else.

In addition, Mary used to tutor Bobby in high school . . . and the two dated for awhile.

Can Mary save Trish? Can we ever escape high school? Can Mary find happiness as a lawyer for the angry people in South Philly? Can Mary get a life?

Lisa Scottoline's interesting story races along all these tracks at the same time. It's good story telling . . . and even better reading.

In the process, you'll get to know Mary as you've never known her before. I think you'll like what you learn about her.
