Grace Rossi is a part-time lawyer/law clerk for a chief judge in Philadelphia. She is also a bit in love with her boss. The other 3 law clerks in the office are an eclectic group. Ben wants to clerk for a Supreme Court justice. Artie is in love with Sarah, and Sarah leads Artie on while she also has a major crush on their boss, the judge. Grace and Armen, the judge, consummate their desire for each other, and Armen states his love for Grace.
Shockingly, the next day, everything changes. Grace must now dig deeply into the judge's life, determine whether he is owned by the mob, and who is the sinister presence in their lives? A solid legal thriller. ( )

I read this for the Just For Fun Challenge which encourages reading one book that has been on the TBR shelf for a long time and without doing a review. I still rated this book though and I enjoyed it. ( )

A typical Lisa Scottoline book, who done it. Not sure why I keep reading her books, I guess because she keeps me reading and the books hold my interest. She needs to switch up her writing and have a little more suspense in her books. ( )
