Description

Best-selling author Lisa Scottoline's thrillers have been used by bar associations across the country to examine legal and ethical issues in our civil and criminal justice systems. With the insight, plot, and pacing of a master, Scottoline-an Edgar Award-winner-probes the heart of the lawyer-client privilege in this riveting, ground-breaking look at the legal system. As the jury begins to deliberate, defense attorney Marta Richter's millionaire businessman client Elliot Steere lets slip that he murdered the homeless man who tried to carjack him. Betrayed and insulted, she's digging for evidence while a hired thug and the worst blizzard in decades are bearing down on her. Can Richter tip the scales of justice for her client, or will she be killed trying? Narrator Barbara Rosenblat captures with gusto Scottoline's breakneck pacing, vivid characters, and realistic dialogue. The stunning action in Rough Justice will keep you on edge and make you want to hear more from Scottoline. If you enjoy this book, then you may want to try Running From the Law.

Professional reviews

"Just as the jury begins to deliberate, defense attorney Marta Richter learns from her client that, rather than having killed a homeless drunk in self-defense, the client is actually guilty of murder. In the midst of one of the worst blizzards Philadelphia has ever seen, Marta, aided by two associates, sets out to discover the truth, putting all three in mortal danger. Rosenblat's voiced reading heightens an already exciting and dramatic story; she captures the Italian, Jewish and black dialects. While her pace matches the rapid tempo of events, her pauses between the chapters, each of which ends in a cliffhanger, seem almost too long as the listener anxiously wonders what will happen next. The infrequent flashes of humor are well delivered with a dry wit. It is unfortunate that the reader's breathing and swallowing are audible, detracting from an otherwise superb performance. S.S.R.
