A Rosato & Associates NovelLarge Print - 2013
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 Garder'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 damning, 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. But the Rosato & Associates firm can never resist an underdog. Was justice really served all those years ago? It will take a team of unstoppable female lawyers, plus one fifteen-year-old genius to find out.
