Library Journal Review

Mary DiNunzio's first client after she makes partner at Rosato and Associates is Allegra Gardner, a 13-year-old girl firmly convinced that the man serving time for killing her sister is wrongly imprisoned despite his guilty plea and eyewitness testimony. When Mary and Judy Carrier begin to investigate, they encounter stiff opposition from members of Allegra's powerful family who are convinced that the girl is deeply disturbed. January LaVoy gives the book a terrific read, with nuanced vocal characterizations that will be especially enjoyed by fans of the series. A bonus interview with the author adds background to the writing of the novel. Verdict This audio is highly recommended for adult collections.-Cliff Glaviano, formerly with Bowling Green State Univ.
