Publisher's Summary

Blockbuster author Lisa Scottoline returns to the Rosato & Associates law firm with Betrayed, and maverick lawyer Judy Carrier takes the lead in a case that's more personal than ever. Judy has always championed the underdog, so when Iris, the housekeeper and best friend of Judy's beloved Aunt Barb, is found dead of an apparent heart attack, Judy begins to suspect foul play. The circumstances of the death leave Judy with more questions than answers, and never before has murder struck so close to home.

In the meantime, Judy's own life roils with emotional and professional upheaval. She doesn’t play well with her boss, Bennie Rosato, which jeopardizes her making partner at the firm. Not only that, her best friend Mary DiNunzio is planning a wedding, leaving Judy feeling left behind, as well as newly unhappy in her relationship with her live-in boyfriend Frank.

Judy sets her own drama aside and begins an investigation of Iris’s murder, then discovers a shocking truth that confounds her expectations and leads her in a completely different direction. She finds herself plunged into a shadowy world of people who are so desperate that they cannot go to the police, and where others are so ruthless that they prey on vulnerability. Judy finds strength within herself to try to get justice for Iris and her aunt -- but it comes at a terrible price.

    "Good story - awful narration."
    Would you try another book from Lisa Scottoline and/or Maria Bello?

    I enjoy Lisa Scottoline but Maria Bello's narration is not enjoyable.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It was nice getting to know Judy.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Maria Bello?

    The narrator that has read past Scottoline books - she was fabulous.


    Do you think Betrayed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Of course.

    "Bad narration spoiled the book"

    I couldn't finish this because of the narrator. I usually enjoy the author so I may buy the book on Kindle at some stage.

    "Another book in a great series ruined by narration"

    I have listened to every one of Lisa Scottoline's Rosato and Associates books in the series. I always purchase Audible versions of Scottoline's books because the narration by Barbara Rosenblatt has been outstanding and pure enjoyment. Maria Bello is simply awful as a narrator. Some words are almost mumbled, others over-enunciated to the point of annoyance, terrible attempts at Spanish accent, common words mis-pronounced, poor pacing of narration ... you name the potential problem with a narrator and it has been exemplified in this book. If Maria Bello is reading the next one, I'll be buying the book and reading instead of listening.

    "Narrator ruined the book for me."

    I struggled thru this because the story was good but the narration had me grinding my teeth. Maria Bello might be a good actress but narrating a book is not her thing! I suggest you buy the book.

    "Okay story, Less than okay narrator."
    Would you try another book from Lisa Scottoline and/or Maria Bello?

    I do like Lisa Scottoline but I do not like Maria Bello as a narrator. She puts accents on way to many words and her narration for men is SO ANNOYING.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    No Frank. He's obnoxious.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Maria Bello could have not read it.

    Story
    "A good page turner"

    In this book of the Rosato series now the Rosato and DiNunzio series, the story focus on associate attorney Judy Carrier. Judy is at odds since Mary DiNunzio became a partner in the firm. Judy is busy with the Linda Adler’s sex discrimination suit against Penn Bank. Bennie Rosato turns over 75 asbestos liability cases to her. It’s the type of work that could establish Judy as a rainmaker and pave the way to becoming a partner. But Judy doesn’t want to argue down the worth of each individual life lost to Mesothelioma.

    If this is not enough Judy’s Aunt Barb is about to have surgery for Breast Cancer. Judy is with Aunt Barb when the police tell her that Rita Lopez or as Aunt Barb knows her Iris Juarez, has been found dead behind the wheel of her car. Father Keegan the pastor of Iris’s church is killed in a hit and run accident. Judy thinks both have been murdered. How can Judy juggle the demands of the Adler case, the 75 cases she would rather not work on, her Aunt Barb’s surgery, and solve the murder of the two people connected to her aunt.

    The book is well written, there is suspense, humor done in the usual Scottoline story telling fashion. The story is told in such a way that even though there are several different story lines and characters, I was never confused. In the traditional way of a Scottoline story just as you think things have calmed down and are starting to work themselves out Scottoline throws a curve ball at you. As the story gets closer to the end the storyline speeds up I found I just could not stop reading. Maria Bello narrated the story.

    "Story was good..Reader Was Distracting"

    I didn't like the way the reader portrayed some of the characters especially the main character. Very rarely did she get the voice inflection
    Correct and seemed quite snotty and almost robotic most of the time which is not the image I got from the story or words. Sometimes the attitude was warranted, but it was largely unwarranted and distracting.

    "Not her best"
    What did you like best about Betrayed? What did you like least?

    I like the Rosato & DiNunzio series.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I love Maria Bello as an actress but she is NOT a good narrator. It was hard for me not to stop listening and reading the book instead.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I felt like I was getting a class on Immigrants from Mexico. It was too much. The story line moved to slow.
