Courting Trouble

by Lisa Scottoline (read Feb 2005)
Newly hired to the Philladelphia law firm of Rasato & Associates, Anne Murphy decides to spend the 4th of July weekend in New Jersey getting ready for her first big trial. She will be defending a big-money client on sexual harrassment charges. On Monday morning when she reads about her own 'death' in the newspaper, she immediately realizes that the girl watching her cat was shot in the face and the media had a case of mistaken identity. She decides to remain dead in order to catch the killer.

This is the first Scottoline book I read. I'm definitely going to be reading more. I enjoyed meeting the ladies of the Firm: Bennie Rosato, Mary DiNunzio, Judy Carrie and, of course, Anne Murphy. A great mix of characters.
