Murder, mayhem, lawsuits, a vicious lawyer, and Italian families oh my!!! Whatever could possible go wrong? Welcome to the lawyers’ tale, the sixth in the Rosato & Dinunzio. The book is
The law firm of Rosato & DiNunzio is doing well. They have a client who has a suit, an intellectual property suit, against a large tech company which is trying to put them out of business when low and behold the firm gets some really bad news. They, themselves, are being sued with a reverse discrimination suit which alleges they only hire females. There is one male lawyer, John, on the team. However, John has let it be known that he often feels that being the only male is off putting for him. The ladies of the firm are being pursued by their old nemesis, Machiavelli, (now isn’t that a great name!) who is ruthless, corrupt, and has a vendetta against the firm being that they beat him at their last case together. He will go to any lengths to get his revenge, perhaps even to see the demise of the firm, and not caring who he steps on in the process. He is a real cad, wealthy, powerful, and pulling all the strings. Then the awful happens. There is a murder and the signs point to one of the team lawyer members as the culprit.
What are the ladies to do? Yep, they will take this on and fight this lawsuit while searching out clues, and balancing the fact that one of them is pregnant. They do have their families behind them and as one is very Italian, and funny to boot, they will ferret out the culprits, make what wrong right again, and save the day. …or will they???
This was a quick fun read and even though I had not read the previous books in the series, I was able to jump right in and enjoy the tale. Recommended for those who do so like a “lawyerly” tale!
