Rosario & DiNunzio novels are the best! Mary DiNunzio has recently become a partner in Bennie Rosario's law practice. Bennie was Mary's boss, mentor & a lawyer with a national reputation. They work really well together with Bennie stronger in case law & Mary stronger in the emotional aspects. That makes this case even harder. Mary wants to represent her child hood friend, Simon, a widower with a cancer stricken daughter. Simon is sure that he was fired because of the cost of his daughter's treatments. However, the parent company is a client of Bennie's & accounts for a large number of her cases. This case is pulling their firm & the two lawyers apart.

Lisa Scottoline has a talent for writing gripping legal thrillers with plot twists used for maximum benefit. Her characters are well developed & relatable. The situations they find themselves in are current topics that engage your emotions. Once I pick up a book by this author, I can't put it down until I've hit "The End".

In this book, you have both lawyers torn apart by this case. Both sides have parties involved from each lawyers past. Mary's friend from the neighborhood, Simon & Bennie's college friend, Nate. The women are torn apart from the case, differing loyalties, ethics & more. As they get pulled further into the case, they find that things aren't as they seem & accidentally put themselves in danger. Can they solve the case? Will it destroy their firm? Will they survive the ending? ( )

A dramatic yet amusing mystery, as Mary tries to defend her friend and stay alive amidst a legal battle. Multilayered, 'Exposed' delves into friendships, family and obligations both professional and personal, and has you questioning just how well you really know someone. A few twists keep this interesting and you won't see it coming until it's on you! Great writing, detailed plot, and characters you can relate to make this a go to for your reading shelf.

Simon Pensiera, wrongfully terminated by his employer, seeks help from his long-time friend Mary DiNunzio. Mary immediately agrees to take his case, but a conflict of interest arises when she learns that her partner, Bennie Rosato, represents his firm’s parent company. With Mary and Bennie firmly entrenched in opposite corners, can their partnership survive? Where will Judy’s loyalties lie? And when Mary learns the details of Simon’s dismissal from OpenSpace, how far will she go obtain justice for her friend?

All the usual characters are present for this, the fifth in the Rosato and DiNunzio series. With a twisting plot offering surprising turns, an unexpected adversary, and the threat of lost friendships and a dissolving partnership, readers will find it difficult to set this book aside before the final unexpected mind-boggling reveal.

Highly recommended. ( )

EXPOSED (ROSATO & DINUNZIO, #5) BY LISA SCOTTOLINE

What happens when one partner decides to take a pro bono case to sue a client of the firm? Trouble, that's what happens!
Mary DiNunzio has decided to represent her friend Simon Pensiera in a lawsuit when she finds out that he has wrongfully been fired by his employer. Bennie Rosato tells her she cant because the company Mary wants to sue is a client of the firm and a conflict of interest. From there the sparks fly! Mary talks about quitting the firm, Bennie doesnt want her to go ahead with the lawsuit, and the head of the company is willing to do ANYTHING , including murder,to make this lawsuit that promises not only monetary damages, but horrible public relations in the media go away.

I seriously couldnt put this one down. Poor Mary trying to do what is best for her client is stuck in the middle of a huge mess and it may get her killed. I loved every heart pounding minute of this book.

I recieved this book free from goodreads in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Lisa Scottoline is one of those writers who is high on my go to authors when I’m in the mood for a good mystery as she has yet to disappoint.

Her latest is no exception as she offers up a new entry into her Rosato & DiNunzio series with the criminal element exposed and ready to do whatever it takes to bury those secrets before they find the light of day in yet another one of her cleverly written novels. Scottoline slowly unwinds all the elements and leaves it nearly to the end before you finally unearth the truth in this fast paced thriller that brings new meaning to the phrase “guessing to the end”.

She delves into some interesting ethical issues as you have two law partners whose clients have a complicated connection to each other and the firm. Mary, our protagonist, wants to take on a wrongful termination case but her partner in the firm represents the company she wants to use. Talk about conflict of interest! It only gets better as Scottoline throws in a major plot twist that has both partners reevaluating their respective stances as the case heads off into an unexpected direction. ( )
