Family cohesiveness! That’s what Scottoline validates in a novel that focuses on people’s willingness to dedicate their lives. A child’s upbringing – the parental affection instils his/her social interaction. The narrative commences with a litigation case relating to a client’s discriminatory dismissal. Mary DiNuncio accepts the case out of compassion for a child suffering from an interminable disease. Her acceptance results in a conflict of interest between partners; and a disciplinary action letter from Nate Lence perpetuates Mary to take a sabbatical in an attempt to resolve the problem independently.

When Simon hands Mary DiNuncio a gift in the presence of an audience, it raises suspicions from a reader's perspective. Was this really a tribute or an enticement of some sort? Also his reactions appear to be slightly an over exaggeration, his ultimate focus being primarily on the financial aspect of everything and his daughter’s illness. Are these factors an attempt to generate self-pity or an emotional tailspin? The murder of Todd Eddington also makes him a key suspect. His presence prior to the murder; and the camera validation along with the animosity between him and his boss.

In conclusion, the narrative ends on a positive note. Bennie Rosato had been brilliant in catching the real culprit. By and large, the author depicted tremendous insights on law, medicine, cancers and bone marrow transplants.

Started slowly but, quickly built momentum to a great finish. Good read.

Lisa Scottoline has another great Rosato and DiNunzio story in EXPOSED. I am a fan of hers. Have to admit though that I struggled a bit through the first 20% of this book. A lot of legal-technical stuff about conflict of interest (though somewhat interesting), but a side story as this unfolded. After that it was vintage Scottoline and, as usual, really heats up at the end for a good finish. Worth the read.

This was an OK read. Some of the writing lacked any depth. It did pick up half way through and the ending was interesting.

Sorry couldn't get past the nonsense with grown people calling each other Pigeon Tony, Tony from down the block not to mention sitting in on a meeting between lawyer & client! And the bold uppercase print everytime Mary's father spoke was terribly annoying.

It was great to be back with these characters--smart and intelligent women who aren't afraid to disagree.

One of the best Lisa Scottoline books I have read since "Everywhere That Mary Went" making me a Mary DiNunzio fan for the duration.

This book begins with a crisis in South Philly. When Mary agrees to help her cousin Simon, she finds out that Bennie represents the parent company of the business Mary's cousin needs to file a suit against. As Mary contemplates leaving the firm to remain loyal to her family and friends, a murder is committed and both Bennie and Mary jump in with both feet to help solve it.

Lots of suspense, danger, girls taking care of business and a plot twist or two follow. The end is well worth the ride. Can't wait to see what happens in installment #6.

Another fun, quick read in the DiNunzio and Rosato series. I love the colorful characters from Mary's South Philly neighborhood, painted here with affection. Now, however, there may be a problem with conflict of interest that even scholar Judy can’t completely resolve. Yet Mary has to take the case or risk alienating her client base. It all leads to the usual crazy, danger-filled investigation that this time has the added dimension of possibly turning Bennie Rosato into a real girl. The fact that you know precisely how it will end does not dull the journey. Chick lit at its finest.

'Exposed' is vintage Scottoline. Mary DiNunzio and Bennie Rosato are back and as is the case when they are the pages are rip-roaring thrillers. This time around there is a twist because Mary and Bennie may be pitted against one another. Without being a spoiler, I can say that the book starts with a wrongful dismissal case, proceeds to a defamation, and ultimately murder. As always the book is action packed and every line till the last one yes, the very last line, is important. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

This is the best of the "alphabet verb" books. Exposed is so multifacedted and ends so great, it took my breath away. It was the perfect blend of all of the characters, showed growth of the characters and had an ending that worked well. Suspense with mystery also. enjoy!
