Publisher Description

Blockbuster author Lisa Scottoline returns to the Rosato & Associates law firm with the New York Times bestseller, Betrayed, and maverick lawyer Judy Carrier takes the lead in a case that's more personal than ever.

Judy has always championed the underdog, so when Iris, the housekeeper and best friend of Judy's beloved Aunt Barb, is found dead of an apparent heart attack, Judy begins to suspect foul play. The circumstances of the death leave Judy with more questions than answers, and never before has murder struck so close to home.
In the meantime, Judy's own life roils with emotional and professional upheaval. She doesn't play well with her boss, Bennie Rosato, which jeopardizes her making partner at the firm. Not only that, her best friend Mary DiNunzio is planning a wedding, leaving Judy feeling left behind, as well as newly unhappy in her relationship with her live-in boyfriend Frank.

Judy sets her own drama aside and begins an investigation of Iris's murder, then discovers a shocking truth that confounds her expectations and leads her in a completely different direction. She finds herself plunged into a shadowy world of people who are so desperate that they cannot go to the police, and where others are so ruthless that they prey on vulnerability. Judy finds strength within herself to try to get justice for Iris and her aunt -- but it comes at a terrible price.

Not as good as Think Twice but still a good read.

Betrayed..needed more humor

I am a Scottoline fan forever, and parts of this novel didn't disappoint but the combative relationship between Judy Carrier and her "mother" Delia became so annoying half way through the book I had to skim to move on. I always love Lisa's balance of breathless action with humor, but this story focused too much on a secondary relationship rather than the legal thrillers we are used to. I did like it, but it took 4 months to read since I had to put it down from boredom. I look forward to the next legal thriller with the male lawyer addition. I miss the books like Mistaken Identity and Think Twice. Funny, Smart, heart-pounding legal thrillers
