Mary DiNunzio has just been promoted to partner and is about to take on her most unusual case yet, brought to the firm by a thirteen-year-old genius with a penchant for beekeeping.

Allegra Gardner's sister Fiona was murdered six years ago, and it seemed like an open-and-shut case: the accused, Lonnie Stall, was seen fleeing the scene; his blood was on Fiona and her blood was on him; most damningly, Lonnie Stall pleaded guilty. But Allegra believes Lonnie is innocent and has been wrongly imprisoned. The Gardner family is one of the most powerful in the country and Allegra's parents don't believe in reopening the case, so taking it on is risky.

Was justice really served all those years ago? It will take a team of unstoppable female lawyers, plus one thirteen-year-old genius, to find out. Get A Copy. Hardcoverpages. More Details Original Title.

Liked it, but it the accused review have been better, the accused review. Maybe it was too much of Mary's life, I was intrigued abou the case and I had to read a lot about Mary going around and then find out a little something more about the case.

It is billed as a Rosato and Associates book, but beware Scottoline attempts to incorporate humor with the family dynamics of Mary and Anthony's families, as well as the Tonys.

It falls flat, and quite frankly ruins the storyline. Mary, who now must be in her 30's, has survived the the accused review of her first husband and is now a partner in the firm.

One This has to be my least favorite Scottoline book. One would expect maturity from this character. Instead it read like she was an immature young woman, fresh out of law school, who treats her boyfriend quite horribly! I find her to be very selfish, the accused review. I am weary of reading about her "guilt" and other issues. The accused review, who has always been a vibrant character, was a fly on the wall - a flat fly on the wall.

Quite frankly Mary's whole family should stay out of the story and let it be a story about the Rosato and Associates characters. Note: Have Mary get married in Vegas or at City Hall before the next book so I don't have to read any more about this situation.

Her mother worries for her. Novena this and novena that over and over. We have so many Tony's that you the accused review keep track and they are a huge distraction, the accused review. We have a lawyer - Mary - who really does So you want to read a one star review? We have a the accused review - Mary - who really doesn't understand the the accused review regardless of what kind of law it is. And she spends little time as a lawyer. Her boyfriend puts up with way too much of her crap.

No wonder her best friend and fellow lawyer at the firm is having issues with her on this case. We have an african american in jail after being convicted of a crime. We have his mother and her church and another lengthy chapter filled with religion. I don't have anything against religion, but it was a hinder and not necessary. That is DEAD???? We got bees, the accused review got fractured families, we got ziti, the accused review. I couldn't wait to finish this book. It was awful.

It was all over the place. It is contrived. It is painful. We couldn't infer anything at anytime. And the the accused review she considers the REAL suspect. Oh please. If you buy that, I have some land in Florida you might like to see.

This first book in the 'Rosato and DiNunzio' series is a spin-off of the author's popular 'Rosato and Associates' books, the accused review.

Allegra is convinced that Ronnie is innocent and - having come into a trust fund - decides to hire a lawyer to help him, the accused review. Allegra's parents are adamantly opposed to re-opening the case, insisting that Allegra has a destructive and misplaced obsession about justice.

Nevertheless Mary forges ahead. There's a big problem however: Ronnie actually pleaded guilty to the crime. Mary talks to Allegra's parents and relatives, Fiona's old boyfriend, Ronnie, Ronnie's mother and members of his church, etc. Meanwhile, Mary has become engaged to her boyfriend Anthony, though she's not quite sure she wants to get married.

Family and friends of the couple, the accused review, however, are thrilled. This includes Mary's parents, their three friends named Tony 'the three Tonys' and Anthony's mother and brother - all very traditionally Italian.

Mary's dad and the three Tonys even get peripherally involved with Allegra's case, the accused review. Interactions among these folks adds a touch of humor to the plot.

Oct 14,  · “The Accused” demonstrates that rape victims often are suspects in their own cases. Surely they must have been somehow to blame. How were they behaving at the time of the crime? How were they dressed? Had they been drinking? Is their personal life clean and tidy? Or are they sluts who were just asking for it? I am aware of the brutal impact of the previous sentence.3/5.
