Mary is happily going along with the flow, she helps out people from the neighborhood with various civil suits and helping wherever she can. Her clients pay and she's moving her way up. Then Trish Gambone from Mary's high school days shows up. Trish, was one of the mean girls that made Mary's high school years difficult and not to mention that they have a boyfriend in common (Mary's from the past and Trish's current). However Trish's boyfriend has been threating her and Trish has come in seeking help.
Next thing you know Trish disappears, the neighborhood turns on Mary and Mary is on the run seeking Trish, the truth and herself.
A great novel of suspense, and also one of self-realization, it's fun to watch Mary try and solve the crime and also learn about herself. There is great character development in this and I loved learning about the various people from the neighborhood.
The reader on the unabriged cd set was excellent, with differing voices and accents for the characters, they really came to life for me.
An overall wonderful book that I didn't want to end. This is the latest installment in the Rosato and Associates books, but I haven't read any of the others and this one was easy to follow. I do plan on going back and starting with the beginning now though.
I became a fan of Lisa Scottoline with Dirty Blonde and Daddy's Girl and now it looks like I will get to enjoy all the Rosato and Associates books too.
