Description

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.

Performed by Kate Burton

  • (3/5)
    Lisa Scottoline seems to have one type of main character (no matter what her name) and it's growing a bit tiresome after 3 books. Her law knowing people seem to think it is okay to break the law and/or intrude on active investigations (and there are seldom consequences--though the person is usually in jeopardy at least once).

    I liked Mary's dedication to history and finding out what happened--though she never did find out what happened to Amadeo's three boats which is what she set out looking for. (She ended up finding something bigger.)

    I don't think it is realistic that her boss (also a lawyer) would let Mary spend so many pro bono hours on a case without her also generating some billable hours. Mary also seems to ignore the clients she does have. One even seems ready to leave the firm which Bennie gets wind of and tries to forestall--but even though she threatens Mary, she doesn't follow through with consequences.

    Took a long time for me to get into this book, but then it took off towards the end. Not one of her better novels in my opinion.
  • (4/5)
    It may be partially because I grew up in South Philly, but I thought Lisa Scottoline's crime thriller, Killer Smile, was a fun read. It has a decent plot, a fair amount of humor, and is a good light read, perfect for the beach.
  • (5/5)
    Mary Dinunzio gets obsessed with the old Brandilini case in which an Italian-American was sent to an internment camp during WW II and committed suicide while interred there.
  • (4/5)
    Maybe some of the action sequences don't quite work, but a terrific plot. At first I expected the "blind-date" subplot to be completely gratuitous and irrelevant, but it worked its way into the main story in a way I didn't see coming. Historical touches are lovely and the pacing is good. The surprise witness at the end trial works nicely, although the evidence is a bit far-fetched. One of my favorites of the series.
  • (2/5)
    The story revolves around the theft of an old WWII patent. The lead character was very abrasive.
  • (4/5)
    Listened to library CD. Enjoyed, a good mystery.
  • (4/5)
    Entertaining thriller with female protagonist; plot involves WWII internment camp in Missoula, Montana.
