Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Courting Trouble, New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline is back with another fast-paced thriller, which sends a young woman lawyer racing to find out who's trying to kill her — after she's wrongly been reported murdered.

Anne Murphy is smart, gorgeous, and young, the redheaded rookie at the Philadelphia law firm of Rosato & Associates. She leaves town for the Fourth of July weekend to prepare for a high-profile trial, but when she buys her morning newspaper, her own photo is plastered all over the front page. And the headline- — LAWYER MURDERED — supposedly refers to her. Anne sets out to find her killer, playing dead in order to stay alive.

She tries to go it alone but quickly realizes that she'll have to trust people she barely knows — colleagues who hate her guts, a homicide squad that wants her out of the crime-fighting business, and a new love who inconveniently happens to be opposing counsel. The investigation takes all of Anne's boldness and ingenuity — plus a pair of red satin hot pants. But her knack for courting trouble makes it almost impossible for Anne to play well with others, defend the lawsuit, and fight her urge to sleep with the enemy. Then an unexpected event places her in lethal jeopardy and leaves her with everything to lose — including her life.

Review:

"A glamorpuss lawyer whose behavior defies belief; gay bars and hooker disguises; a little detection, a little courtroom drama, and one noisy finale: it's all as fleet and breathless as it is synthetic." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"The best-selling Scottoline has a knack for writing catchy whodunits with wit, charm, and mischief, and she doesn't disappoint here." Mary Frances Wilkens, Booklist

Review:

"Lisa Scottoline's legal suspense novels are a law unto themselves — biting humor, social satire, snappy dialogue, and surprising plot twists. Best of all, Scottoline's characters command your attention and draw you into their lives and their world. Courting Trouble is a great work of contemporary writing: smary, edgy, witty and perfectly paced, not to mention great fun." Nelson Demille, author of The General's Daughter
