Publisher's Summary

Mary DiNunzio gets a terrifying telephone call while she's working late, then goes home to find a shadow lurking at her front door. When a lawyer close to her turns up dead, Mary begins to suspect that the case she's been working on, involving the suicide of an Italian-American in an internment camp during World War II, may not be ancient history after all.

Critic Reviews

"Scottoline skillfully weaves a complicated, gripping, and fast-paced tale, at turns comical, nerve-wracking, and enlightening." (Publishers Weekly)

As well read as written

A very well written, witty and nicely read audiobook. Dan Brown should read this to reference how to structure a plot for a book and not a movie!

You'll be smiling by the end of this book!

Scottoline is best know for her medical thrillers. This book, which covers territory personally familiar to her, is much, much better and less formulaic. Not a thriller, but definitely a mystery to be solved, it is handled deftly, with humor and is thoroughly enjoyable.
