Three out of five stars
Attorney-turned-author Lisa Scottoline brings back some of her most popular characters in “Lady Killer.”
Attorney Mary DiNunzio thought she had traded the rough and tumble South Philly neighborhood of her youth for a more stable life of practicing law in the all-female firm Rosato & Associates.
DiNunzio was the studious one in high school, mocked by the “mean girls,” who were more popular with boys. DiNunzio moved on. The mean girls did not.
Now, Trish Gambone, one of the original mean girls, appears in DiNunzio’s office in hysterics, saying her boyfriend – and DiNunzio’s secret high school crush – is going to kill her.
When Gambone’s boyfriend turns up dead, DiNunzio is once again pulled into the world she left behind – a world of violence, danger and some pretty tragic memories.
Scottoline, herself a native of Philadelphia, knows these characters inside out. She weaves a delicious and suspenseful story that will have you reading late into the night.
