Anne Murphy thought she’d put her unhappy past a continent behind her when she joined Philadelphia attorney Bennie Rosato’s all-woman law firm. Then a friend who’s housesitting for Anne is murdered in what’s clearly a case of mistaken identity, and Anne realizes that the past has caught up with her and that the only way to outrun it is to catch the killer before he realizes that she’s still alive. But how can Anne play dead with a high-profile case just days away from starting? The only way to pull it off is to let her new colleagues in on the secret, which would mean telling them her other secrets, too, including the fact that she’s in love with opposing counsel and the probability that her client may not be as innocent as she thought he was.
Action begins early in this book and hardly lets go all the way to the end. It is crime fiction at its finest because there are many twists and turns and heart stopping moments before the identity of the killer comes to light. This is my third venture into the lives of Rosato & Associates and I’m enjoying them more and more. I had the audio version and the narrator was very good.
