Introduction

Many book clubs have written Lisa asking for questions to guide their discussion, so Lisa came up with a bunch for each book. Her goal in writing books is to entertain, so it goes without saying that Lisa wants you to have lots of fun discussing her books, and has reflected that in her questions. She provides the talking points, and you and your group shape the conversation. So go ahead, get together, chat it up with your friends, discuss books, kids, and relationships, but by all means, have fun.

Questions Anne is hot, young, and nice. Or is she? Why do women hate/compete with/not support other women? Or is Lisa just feeling cranky? This formerly chummy law firm doesn't look so chummy from the outside. How does this happen? Who is right and who's at fault? And why do some people dye their hair blue? Is Anne smart to play dead? What would it be like to have tons of men but no girlfriends? Who would like to try? Is Anne insanely reckless or is she just bold? Isn't a convertible more fun than any other car in the world? Why don't more women drive them? Should you put a baby seat in one? Why doesn't Lisa just go right out and get herself one? God knows she deserves it, and doesn't need to put a baby seat in it. Are Anne's disguises fun or just silly? Do they serve a greater purpose? Are some characters more prone to disguises and why? Let's talk about belonging and patriotism. Sooner or later somebody will get choked up. Lisa always does.

Anne Murphy is the redheaded rookie at the Philadelphia law firm of Rosato &Associates, and one morning she wakes up to front-page headlines proclaiming lawyer murdered — above her own picture. If she wants to stay alive, she's got to play dead. She'll have to trust people she barely knows — colleagues who hate her, homicide cops who want her out of the crime-fighting business, and a new love who inconveniently happens to be opposing counsel. But her knack for courting trouble makes it almost impossible for Anne to play well with others, and an unexpected event places her in lethal jeopardy and leaves her with everything to lose.
