Audible Editor Reviews

Natalie Greco, a law professor, is teaching a class at a local prison when a riot breaks out. Trying to rescue a dying guard, she's witness to his last words: "Tell my wife it's under the floor." Suddenly she's suspected of murder, chased by cops and killers, not to mention a colleague with romance in mind. Barbara Rosenblat is a perfect match for Scottoline's dramatic story. Scottoline writes with breakneck speed, and Rosenblat reads breathlessly. Scottoline injects humor, and Rosenblat inserts wry tones to relieve the intensity. Scottoline's characters are fully dimensional; Rosenblat breathes life into them. The author's cast is large; Rosenblat invents a huge range of voices to enliven the exciting story.

Publisher's Summary

Law professor Natalie Greco has an ordered life. She feels a passion for teaching, especially her arcane History of Justice seminar, even though the course is pathetically undersubscribed in the high-powered law school. She has an attentive boyfriend and a protective family, although her testosterone-fueled big brothers and very successful parents tend to overlook the quiet Nat.

Then, one terrible day, everything changes. Nat accompanies her colleague Angus to a prison in Chester County, where he's a guest lecturer. They are hardly inside before the speaker system announces a "disturbance" and the warden orders a lockdown. They're smack in the middle of a riot. In front of a horrified Nat, a prison guard is fatally injured. Nat rushes to help him, only to hear his last words: "Tell my wife. It's under the floor. The money."

At that moment, reinforcements arrive, the riot is quelled, and Nat and Angus are escorted out of the building by U.S. marshals. Remembering the dying guard's words, Nat feels she must find his widow. But this is no simple quest, and along the way, Nat is framed for murder and the retiring scholar finds herself in a desperate fight to save her own life.

    "Enjoyable"

    Daddy's Girl is a fun read and just when you think the mystery is solved you get another treat. Performance is, as usual, excellent. Book is not as good as the regular series with Bernie and gang but the Nat Grego is the typical gutsy heroine and most LS fans should enjoy this book.

    "Great Book"

    This was a great book to listen to and the narrator was excellent, I really enjoyed all the twists and turns in the story. This book was put together very well with the exception of why the book was titled "Daddy's Girl", I thought the title should have been something different.
    I still give this 5 stars and look forward to listen to more of Lisa's books and hopefully with the same narrator.

    "Daddy's Girl"

    Lisa Scottoline has once again written a book that keeps you entertained and guessing. With a very unexpected twist at the end, this book will keep you entertained.

    "Zero Stars"

    This was THE worst book I have ever "read"! As much as I enjoy description and find it neccessary for reading, this book was maximum overkill. I found myself eye-rolling and sighing every few minutes. But, after donning boots and a shovel, I dug my way to the storyline. The story of a meek, frail, spoiled adult female who still allows her father, brothers and boyfriend to control her life. I was insulted and disgusted with the portrayal of this "lead female heroin". When she finally decides to stand up for herself, she decides to run away from the law!? I don't find that to be very brave. I admit that she experienced her fair share of tragedy, and I can't say how I would react in her shoes. But, dumping my boyfriend, screwing my colleague and becoming a fugitive of the law wouldn't be at the top of my list. I think the author concentrated too much on portraying her research material rather than creating an edge of your seat storyline. And the "big twist" at the end? About as twisty as a strait line. Please, if you are a strong willed, independant female with strong convictions, do not torture yourself with this lousy book. "Daddy's Girl" will make you want to reach into your listening device and strangle her.

    "daddy's girl"

    This was the first and last Lisa Scottoline novel to which I've listened; in a nutshell, banal, boring, redundant language, and predictable.
    Would not recommend for anyone wanting an intelligent listen.

    "Solid Mystery"

    Natalie Greco is a solid Scottoline heroine - she's got a core of iron in there somewhere, but is a Legal Prof at a university where she's not taken very seriously, and the only daughter of a very masculine family of loud men who don't tend to hear her when she speaks.

    A colleague asks Natalie to come with him to a local prison, to teach a course to some convicts, and she agrees. While there, a riot breaks out, and a dying police officer whispers something to Natalie that might be a clue to a greater corruption.

    Soon, attempts are being made on her life, and Natalie is trying to figure out if there can be Justice in the world or not - and whether she can keep herself alive in the process.

    Read wonderfully, this audio was a thrill ride, steeped with some historical content that I'm really starting to respect Scottoline for including in many of her stories.

    "A Thriller Through and Through"

    A real "page turner" and hard to turn off. Kudos to Barbara Rosenblat - she did an awesome job narrating.
