Everybody around lawyer Mary DiNunzio has decided she isn't allowed to be a Young Widow anymore. They're all trying to fix her up -- her South Philly parents, her best friend, even the office security guard.

All Mary wants to do is immerse herself in a case everybody else calls "The History Channel," a pro bono representation of the Brandolini estate: At the outbreak of World War II, Amadeo Brandolini was arrested by the FBI as part of a mass internment of Italian-Americans and was sent to a camp in Montana, where he eventually committed suicide. Now, more than sixty years later, his son's estate hires Mary to sue for reparations.

Mary vows to vindicate Amadeo even though it won't be easy. Suddenly this quiet, squeaky-clean good girl is risking life and limb to finger a killer and lay a beloved ghost to rest.

9TH BOOK IN Rosato & Associates SERIES. AUDIOBOOK AVAILABLE THRU MNLINK

Vincent T Lombardo Feb 23, 2013

I found Lisa Scottoline's writing style irritating on occasion: too much detail about what the women wore; too many women "jumped" to their "pumps!". Sometimes I felt that I was reading elevated "Chick Lit". But I kept turning the pages!!!!! This is a great story. The book is very entertaining and I laughed out loud many times. Like Scottoline, I grew up in Philadelphia, and her descriptions of South Philadelphia and its Italian-American community are colorful and honest. I look forward to reading some of her other books.
