Publisher's Summary

In The Vendetta Defense, Lisa Scottoline, New York Times best-selling author of Moment of Truth and Mistaken Identity, tells a wonderfully rich story of past sins, love, and justice.

Lawyer Judy Carrier takes the case of an elderly pigeon racer, Tony Lucia, who has been arrested for the murder of his lifelong enemy, Angelo Coluzzi. "Pigeon Tony", as he's known, confesses to Judy that he killed Coluzzi because of a vendetta begun more than 50 years ago.

Her client's guilt, however, is only the beginning of Judy's problems. The Coluzzi family wants revenge, and they are determined to finish off Pigeon Tony and Judy before the case can go to trial.

Critic Reviews

"Scottoline is wickedly funny....The outcome is Mary Higgins Clark meets Susan Isaacs meets John Grisham." (Philadelphia Magazine)
"Scottoline's writing style is sharp, intelligent, funny, and hip." (USA Today)

Love Lisa - another great one.

The combination of Lisa Scottoline and Kate Burton come together again to make a great mystery. Love the character detail and the action in this book. It kept me piqued and not wanting to even stop the car for a potty break! Another great book by a wonderful author.
