9780007100330: Moment of Truth

Heart-stopping legal thriller from the woman who leaves John Grisham and Scott Turow in the shade with her fast-paced storytelling and witty dialogue.

When Jack Newlin comes home to find his wife dead on the floor of their elegant dining room, he’s convinced he knows who killed her – and determined that the murderer should escape detection. Making a split-second decision, he sets about doctoring the evidence in order to frame himself for the crime. And to hammer the final nail in his coffin, he hires the most inexperienced lawyer he can find: Mary DiNunzio of Philadelphia law firm Rosato and Associates.

Unfortunately for Jack, hiring Mary could turn out to be a big mistake. Inexperienced she may be, but Mary soon discovers that instead of defending the usual guilty client who claims to be innocent, she has an innocent client falsely proclaiming his guilt.

Review:

‘Lisa Scottoline has been added to my short list for must-read-authors. Her stories are filled with teeth-gnashing suspense, her characters are compelling, and her humor cuts to the heart of the issue with laser-like accuracy.’
Janet Evanovich

‘Quick, witty, flavorful, and absorbing. Ms. Scottoline’s distinctive voice makes this book [Running from the Law] a pleasure to read, and I did so at warp speed.’
Richard North Patterson

From the Back Cover:

When Jack Newlin comes home to find his wife dead on the floor of their elegant dining room, he's convinced he knows who killed her. Determined to shield the murderer from justice, Jack stages the crime scene so that the evidence points to him, then he calls the police to confess. And to hammer the final nail in his own coffin, he hires the most inexperienced lawyer he can find, a reluctant rookie by the name of Mary DiNunzio, employed by Philadelphia law firm Rosato & Associates.

Unfortunately for Jack, hiring Mary could turn out to be a huge mistake. Though inexperienced, Mary senses something amiss and begins to investigate the crimes. She soon discovers that instead of defending a guilty client who claims to be innocent, she has an innocent client who is falsely proclaiming his guilt. Her ethics and instincts tell her she can't defend a man who wants only one thing – to convict himself. Or can she? Smart, gutsy, and dogged to the last, Mary decides to stick with the case. With help form the most unexpected sources, she sets out to prove what really happened. Because, as any lawyer knows, a case is never as simple as it seems. And nothing is ever certain until the final moment of truth.
