Bring Lawyers, Guns, and Money
This book is #5 in the Rosato-DiNunzio series but the first that I have read.
Mary DiNunzio has just been named partner at her law firm. Her former boss Bennie Rosato is now her equal partner. A longtime south Philly resident, Mary has strong ties to her community. When her lifelong friend Simon is unjustly fired from his sales job, seemingly for insurance reasons because his daughter is hospitalized with leukemia and awaiting a transplant, Mary rushes to his defense. However, the firm has a supposed conflict of interest in that it represents the parent company for the company Simon worked for.
In this action packed tale filled with plenty of good guys and bad guys, Mary struggles with moving forward with the case as she and Bennie table their differences in order for Mary to focus on the case. When one of the key players is murdered, Bennie and Mary join forces to uncover the truth and bring the killer to justice. The story takes an unexpected turn and soon both Mary and Bennie find themselves in danger.
The story is fast paced and easy to read however it is a bit far-fetched and a little ridiculous to comprehend. Still, it is entertaining and thought provoking enough to hold attention. Strong female characters are always a plus and you will find them here. I don’t think I will go out of my way to read the others in the series but I have no regrets reading this one.
BRB Rating: Read It.
