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!

This a great chapter in this series. Has heart, mystery, and some pretty wild action. Kept your interest from the beginning to the surprising. Now can't wait until the next installment! These characters just get more interesting in each book.

Philadelphia lawyers Bennie Rosato and Mary DiNunzio look to end up on opposite of a case, possibly ending their new partnership. Bennie represents a parent company, while Mary wants to sue one of its many subsidiaries, and the law is not clear on the issue. Big surprise there, but it's a timely issue as in reality there is more and more consolidation, vertical integration, and plain old Pac man-like eating of companies. This is the first of at least four legal issues confronted by the partners in the fifth book of Rosato &DiNunzio series.

This comes to the partners' attention because Mary's close childhood friend Simon has just been fired from his job. His company says his sales are down. Simon says it's because his darling daughter who is four, is undergoing very expensive cancer treatments, and the company is partially on the hook for medical expenses. This is another legal issue, one that could easily be settled before any paperwork is filed.

But the company wants to fight it out in court with terrorism by litigation, the third legal issue. A term that should be familiar since someone we all know uses that tactic to drive his enemies, small companies and anyone who crosses him out of business.

The fourth legal issue is murder, keeping an innocent man out of jail.

Scottoline does an outstanding job in clearly explaining the legal issues. However, her clarity carries over to the rest of the book where it does seem to dumb down the writing in quite a few places.

In contrast, Scottoline does not dumb down the scenes of peril and danger. This is no legal cozy and her writing is sharp and exciting.

The characters are charming and grow quite a bit in this book, especially Bennie who begins to realize what friendship and love really mean. The south Philly one for all and all for one stuff gets just a tiny bit mushy-gushy and dare I say it, annoying?

This is one series that has held its own and has not gotten stale over the years. Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.
