Publisher's Summary

Attorney Jack Newlin comes home one evening to find his wife dead on the floor. Convinced that he knows who killed her, and determined to hide the truth, Jack decides to make it look as though he committed the felony. Before calling the police, he stages the crime, so that the evidence incriminates him. And to hammer the final nail in his own coffin, he hires Mary Di Nunzio, a reluctant rookie and the most inexperienced lawyer he can find, at a hot Philadelphia firm. However, hiring Mary is where Jack makes his mistake.

She doubts his confession and starts to investigate the murder. Mary's ethics and instincts tell her she can't defend a man who wants only one thing, which is to convict himself. But because she is intelligent, strong-minded, and courageous, she decides to stick with the case and see it through to the final verdict. And nothing is ever certain until the final moment of truth.

This is NOT narrated by Kate Burton

This narrator is Barbara Rosenblat. She is extremely hard to listen to!! I love Lisa Scottoline novels but this narrator is terrible!!! Sounds like she’s eating and chewing and the swallowing noises are awful!! The breathing noises are worse! If you can get past all that lucky you! I couldn’t! Waste of a credit!

Kate burton

I tried twice to listen to this book because I have enjoyed this series in the past but Kate Burton is a horrible reader! I’m abandoning the book all together.

This is NOT, I repeat NOT narrated by Kate Burton.

Okay, where to begin!! Lisa Scottoline is an amazing writer. I have yet to read a book in which she has written that I didn’t like. I cannot fault the writer for the mistakes of the narrator.
First off please be aware that the narrator listed is NOT the person whom narrated this book. This book is narrated by Barbara Rosenblat. The actual narrator Ms. Rosenblat has an amazing array of different voices and they are very distinctive in a way that the listener can differentiate between the characters. That is where my praise for this narrator ends. While listening it would appear that this narrator is chewing gum and a lot of her words appear to have a wet sound to them, almost like her mouth is filled with saliva and she doesn’t know how to swallow. This isn’t the only book she narrates that is like this. The next book in the Rosato and Associates series is narrated by her and it’s much of the same. This series has the potential to be absolutely AMAZING if not this Ms. Rosenblat narrating. I am not sure what is going on with all of the long silent pauses at the end of each chapter before the next one begins. Audible needs to do better editing where this series is concerned.

Horrible narration

I have not placed a formal review in the past but the narration was so horrible I had to comment. The narrator sounds like she is eating and constantly makes wet sounds when she speaks. It is very distracting and gross! Not sure what was going on but I did not enjoy this narrator.

Good story ... terrible narration

Any additional comments?

The story was great but the narration was horrendous. Sounds like she is eating or drinking something the entire time. Almost made me stop listening.

Book is great!

I love all of these books. Lisa Scottoline is a terrific story teller. I've listened to Kate on another book and like that she has different voices for each character. But in this book it sounded like Kate was eating or drinking while she was reading and it was very distracting.

Narration was horrendous!

It was nearly impossible to concentrate on the story with the irritating swallowing sounds and lip smacking of the reader - sounds as if the narrator was snacking throughout the entire story - awful.

Performance

Decent book I like the series. The narrator is ok, but it is extremely distracting to hear her breathing and swallowing.

Could have been better!

I did not like the reader. She sounds like a smoker and the way she tried to change characters by speeding up was terribly annoying. The story was just ok.

Significant Ambient Noise

Storyline seemed fine but didn't get through it because the crackling/smacking/scratching noise in the background was unbearable.
