The storylinew as good and fast paced - kept me listening to the end despite the narration
I don't know what this narrator was doing, I see others saying swallowing, sucking on a cough drop - I was trying to decide between chewing gum and licking lips or swallowing. It was distracting and gross. Will NEVER listen to another book with this narrator.
I also agree with some of the other reviewers -- I enjoyed Barbara Robsenblatt's voice in Scottoline’s “Daddy’s Girl”, so I purchased this book. Her performance was not the same -- all of her voice changes to fit the characters...and that sucking noise -- ugh.
As far as the story -- it just dragged on and on...I kept waiting for the storyline to 'grab me' and keep me interested ....never happened. The immaturity of the main character was very difficult to get past -- I don’t think I’ll be wasting any more time with this author.

so I am notuunbiased nor nuanced. I especially like the series about the law firm run by Bennie.
Wow what a difference a decade or so can make on an authors work. I defiantly enjoy the seasoned later works of Scottoline verses this mid career piece. Not a bad listen however, I was not thinking of when the next time I could press the play button as. I have on her other books.
My wife (Ruthie) and I together listen to Audible's books every evening. We have been doing this since 2005 and have never missed an evening
Enjoyed overcoming racist motives. Realistic and believable story line and narration. Likable characters and very colorful dialogue. Please continue characters in another Scottoline book,
I have to agree with a previous review that this was a refreshing break from Benny and the bumbling lawyers. Suspensful, intelligent, lots of twists and turns and covers different territory than her other books.
I listen to two audiobooks a month. My main interest is in a well-told story, so I enjoy a lot of fiction. But I like history as well
Lisa Scottolini's novels have good characters, interesting settings, and good plotlines. And they are fun. This is no exception. And the narrator is excellent.
I purchased this audio because I enjoy hearing Barbara Rosenblatt's voice. I quickly became dismayed at the immaturity of the main character Vicki. She's 28 years old, a lawyer from a prestigious school with previous work history at another prosecuter's office. She was unbelievably impulsive in tracking down the information needed to solver her partner's murder. She had no interest in following standard procedure in the DA's office and yet this is what she always wanted to be? Sorry, I'll be avoiding this writer in the future.
