Overview

Scottoline writes riveting thrillers that keep me up all night, with plots that twist and turn. Harlan Coben

One boy. One lawyer. One chance for justice.

Ten-year-old Patrick O'Brien is a natural target at school. Shy, dyslexic, and small for his age, he tries to hide his first-grade reading level from everyone: from his classmates, from the grandfather who cares for him, and from the teachers who are supposed to help him. But the real trouble begins when Patrick is accused of attacking a school aide. The aide promptly quits and sues the boy, his family, and the school district. Patrick's grandfather turns to the law firm of Rosato & DiNunzio for help and Mary DiNunzio is on the case. Soon Mary becomes Patrick's true champion and his only hope for security and justice. But there is more to the story than meets the eye and Patrick might be more troubled than he seems. With twists at every turn and secrets about the family coming to light, Mary DiNunzio might have found the case that can make her a true protector, or break her heart...

With Lisa Scottoline s trademark emotional depth and fast-paced action, Damaged will have readers riveted to the last page as they root for the beloved characters and their fight for justice.

In Edgar-winner Scottolines 15th Rosato & DiNunzio novel, the Philadelphia law firms Mary DiNunzio takes over the novel, getting ensnared and emotionally involved in the defense of Patrick OBrien, a 10-year-old accused of attacking a teacher with scissors. When Edward, the boys grandfather and sole caregiver, dies, Marys battle against a damages suit from the teacher and his sleazy lawyer, Nick Machiavelli, escalates into her attempt to gain custody of the boy and, ultimately, defend him from charges that he murdered his grandfatherall this while Mary is planning for her wedding in two weeks. Actor Lowman handles the novels highly charged and sensitive sections without deviating from her precisely enunciated delivery. Her interpretation of the bullied, introverted Patrick, given to bursts of anger, is both compassionate and credible. She is equally successful in helping define the opposing forces in what is cynically described as a fight between good and evil with billable hours. But her main effort is Mary, assisting Scottoline in creating a caring, very human protagonist who faces tough cases and even tougher opposing forces with determination and intelligence. A St. Martins hardcover. (Aug.)
