Grace Rossi is starting over after a divorce, and a part-time job with a federal appeals court sounds perfect. But she doesn’t count on being assigned to an explosive death penalty appeal. Nor does she expect ardor in the court in the form of an affair with the chief judge. Then Grace finds herself investigating a murder, unearthing a secret bank account and following a trail of bribery and judicial corruption that’s stumped even the FBI. In no time at all, Grace under fire takes on a whole new meaning.
Another great book from Lisa Scottoline about the judical system from a women’s view-point. I had the audio version and the narrator, Kate Burton, did a fantastic job. This book involves the murder of a chief judge with whom Grace just had sex, dealing with coming to grips with parents who are far from perfect, the love of a child, friendships and relationships, and betrayal. It’s a murder mystery with a twist and so much more.
I loved it.
