Criminal lawyer Marta Richter is hours away from winning an acquittal for her client, millionaire businessman Elliot Steere, on trial for the murder of a homeless man who tried to carjack him. But as the jury begins deliberations, Marta discovers the chilling truth about her client's innocence.
Taking justice into her own hands, she furiously sets out to prove the truth, with the help of two young associates. In an excruciating game of beat the clock with both the jury and the worst blizzard to hit Philadelphia in decades, Marta will learn that the search for justice isn't only rough - it can also be deadly.

Lisa!! You've written plenty without all the vulgar language! Way too much cursing! Wow!
The story was riveting and kept me on the edge of my seat as Marta went her adventure!
The reader...she was good except she needed a ricola with krrutta craaft! And the huge pauses of dead silence between chapters deserves a do over!
I struggled to get through this book and could not finish it due to the profanity used throughout. I didn't think the used of all the bad language was necessary, it ruined it for me.
It requires more than a suspension of disbelief to make it through this one. Legal premises are absurd; physical capacity of lawyers is superhero level.
I liked all the characters and suspense. I didn't like how several different things were happening all at once when changing chapters.
The last hour or so I enjoyed the most, I couldn't stop listening to it!
I do not think so. The pause between chapters really bothered me, I thought I lost connection or something! The quietness was uncomfortable to me.
Not really, except know that the truth is the best at all times! It made you think about juries in general and what really goes on!
The story would have been much better without the cuss words. They were unnecessary.
The Narrator is horrible. She sounds like she is taking breaths every few sentences or swallowing excessive amounts of saliva. I am sure the story would have been really good if it wasn't for the narrator. I need my credit back!
I am a huge fan of Lisa Scottoline, but this book was very disappointing. If I had not spent so much money on it I wouldn't have finished listening to it.
The series is based on an all women's law firm that deals with criminal cases. In this book, the defense attorney finds out that her client is guilty after the jury goes into deliberations. She sets out to prove that he is guilty before the jury renders its verdict of " not guilty" . I don't need to explain why this is ridiculous.
Secondly, the language is extremely offensive throughout.
Also there is a blizzard taking place during the story and the attorney is outside wearing heels.
I am glad this was not my first Lisa S. book because it would have been my last.
