    Everywhere That Mary Went (1993)

    [​IMG]

    Rosato & Associates Series - Book 1

    The novel is the story of an associate in a prestigious Philadelphia law firm much like the one Lisa practiced in. In Everywhere That Mary Went was nominated by the Mystery Writers of America for an Edgar Award, the equivalent of an Academy Award in the suspense business.

    In Everywhere That Mary Went Mary DiNunzio has been slaving away for the past eight years trying to make partner in her cutthroat Philadelphia law firm. She's too busy to worry about the crank phone calls that she's been getting — until they fall into a sinister pattern. The phone rings as soon as she gets to work, then as soon as she gets home. Mary can't shake the sensation that someone is watching her, following her every move. The shadowboxing turns deadly when her worst fears are realized, and she has to fight for something a lot more important than partnership — her life.

As Grace searches for the truth about her lover's death, her investigation uncovers a trail of bribery and judicial misconduct and corruption that's even stumped the FBI.

    The Vendetta Defense (2001)

    [​IMG]

    Rosato & Associates Series - Book 8

    The Vendetta Defense was voted "one of the top ten best mysteries of the year" by the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel and People magazine gave it its two-word blessing: — "Strong Defense."

    The heart of the tale is a simple idea with complex implications: Anthony Lucia, an old Italian pigeon keeper known to his South Philly neighbors as "Pigeon Tony," doesn't try to hide the fact that he killed lifelong enemy Angelo Coluzzi, nor is he sorry that he's dead. He justifies the killing because he was merely carrying out a vendetta begun more than 50 years ago in Italy, a blood feud that brought great tragedy to Pigeon Tony's life.

    But is murder ever justified? That is what ace lawyer, Judy Carrier, an associate of the Philly law firm Rosato & Associates, must decide for herself, before she can launch a defense in what becomes the most challenging case of her career. Challenging, not only because of its legal complexities, but because she must outsmart and outrun the victims sons, dangerous men who are determined to avenge their father's death, and finish off Pigeon Tony and Judy before the case goes to trial.

When Anne leaves town on Fourth of July weekend to prepare for a big case, she awakes to newspaper headlines claiming she has been murdered. She decides to play dead in order to stay alive, and must solicit the help of her not-so-chummy colleagues at Rosato & Associates in order to catch her "killer."

    Dead Ringer (2003)

    Rosato & Associates Series - Book 10

    A #5 New York Times hardcover bestseller and a #3 Los Angeles Times bestseller, Dead Ringer is fast, fun, and utterly compelling. There was lots of early buzz for Dead Ringer, and in fact, it went on to be chosen as a Costco book club pick, a Cosmopolitan Magazine "Hot Summer Pick," a Literary Guild and Mystery Guild main selection, a Doubleday Book Club, Book of the Month Club and Quality Paperback Book Club alternate selection and an Audio Book Club featured selection.

    In Dead Ringer, the tough-as-nails head of Rosato & Associates, Bennie Rosato, has had her eye focused firmly on the bottom line, and takes a professional risk, charging into a class action lawsuit that could make-or-break her career. Just when she is at her most vulnerable, strange things begin to happen. It begins with a missing wallet, but events quickly escalate. Someone is posing as the outspoken, attorney and is wreaking havoc around town, apparently determined to destroy everything Bennie loves. And Bennie knows only one person can pull off this double deception, her identical sister, Alice Connelly. It's been two years since Bennie has seen or heard from her troublesome twin, but she seems to be back with a vengeance. Bennie refuses to be anyone's victim-least of all her own blood. When a brutal murder occurs, however, Bennie realizes that the stakes have turned deadlier than she feared. And the face of evil is identical to her own.

    Killer Smile (2004)

    [​IMG]

    Rosato & Associates Series - Book 11

    Lisa's critically acclaimed eleventh novel, Killer Smile, not only received rave reviews from industry insiders, but was chosen as a BookSense "Summer Pick."

    Killer Smile became an instant New York Times hardcover bestseller and stars the young associate Mary DiNunzio whose terror over a late-night threatening phone call is only escalated by a suspicious car that seems to be tracking her every move. And, when a lawyer close to Mary turns up dead, she begins to suspect that the case she's been working on — involving the suicide of an Italian-American in an internment camp during World War II — may not be history after all. Add to that the fact that everybody around Mary has decided that she's not allowed to be a Young Widow anymore, and is fixing her up with blind dates from hell. Then a killer comes after her, and it's more than any girl can handle — but not any woman.

    Reads of Killer Smile, Lisa's eleventh novel, are earning Lisa enthusiastic, two thumbs-up reactions across the board. In fact, in addition to rave reviews from industry insiders, Killer Smile has been chosen as Main Selections by both Literary Guild and Mystery Guild. It has also been featured in Doubleday Book Club, Quality Paperback and Book of the Month Club.

    Lady Killer (2008)

    [​IMG]

    Rosato & Associates Series - Book 12

    Mary DiNunzio is a trademark Lisa Scottoline heroine—she's strong, she's smart, and she's got plenty of attitude. In recent years, she's become a big-time business-getter at Rosato & Associates, but the last person she expects to walk into her office one morning—in mile-high stilettos—is super sexy Trish Gambone, her high school rival. Back then, while Mary was becoming the straight-A president of the Latin Club and Most Likely to Achieve Sainthood, Trish was the head Mean Girl, who flunked religion and excelled at smoking in the bathroom.

    As it turns out, however, Trish's life has taken a horrifying turn. She's terrified of her live-in boyfriend, who's an abusive, gun-toting drug dealer for the South Philly mob. There's only one problem—Mary remembers the guy from high school too. Unbeknownst to Trish, Mary had a major crush on him.

    Then Trish vanishes, a dead body turns up in an alley, and Mary is plunged into a nightmare, one that threatens her job, her family, and even her life. She goes on a one-woman crusade to unmask the killer, and on the way, finds new love in a very unexpected place.

    But before the novel's shocking surprise ending, Mary is forced to confront some very uncomfortable truths about her own past, and the profound effects of lifelong love—and hate.

    [​IMG]

    Is evil born or bred? This is the question Bennie Rosato must answer after her twin sister, Alice Connolly, drugs her and leaves for dead, buried underground in a remote field.

    As Alice slips easily into Bennie's life, doing her job, interacting with her friends, seducing her boyfriend, she never counts on the fact that Bennie is tougher than she seems. And that, against all odds, Bennie will escape.

    But escaping is only the first challenge. Alice's sociopathic lies are so believable that she has everyone convinced that she is Bennie, and Bennie is her deranged twin sister Alice. As Bennie descends further into Alice's life, she starts to feel the pull of evil herself. As the clock ticks and Alice gets closer to her ultimate goal, Bennie must face the shocking truth that she is perhaps more like Alice than she ever realized.
