In The Vendetta Defence, New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline delivers a wonderfully rich, vivid story of past sins, love and justice.
Philadelphia lawyer Judy Carrier couldn’t be less like Ally McBeal – Post-it size skirts and makeup are alien territory where she’s concerned. But she’s smart, feisty, and packs a mean punch. In short, just the woman to turn to if you’re charged with murdering the head of a particularly vicious family of crooks.
With the aid of a posse of octagenarian pigeon fanciers, Judy takes on the mob and proves that there is justice after all.

Lawyer Judy Carrier takes the case of her career when an
elderly pigeon racer named Anthony Lucia is arrested for the
murder of his lifelong enemy Angelo Coluzzi. "Pigeon Tony," as
he's known to all his South Philly neighbors, confesses he killed
Coluzzi because of a vendetta begun more than 50 years ago, a
blood feud that has brought great tragedy to Pigeon Tony's life.
Her client's guilt, however, is only the beginning of Judy's
problems. The Coluzzi family wants revenge, and they are
determined to finish off Pigeon Tony and Judy before the case
can go to trial. And if that isn't enough, Judy's got to contend
with Tony's magnetic grandson, Frank, a man who makes her
think about everything but the law, and her boss, the
no-nonsense Bennie Rosato.
In a case steeped in blood and memory, it will take a stroke of
brilliance to save Pigeon Tony. But if anyone just might see
justice done, it's this gutsy young attorney who'll risk everything
to winů including her life.
