Exposed (Rosato & DiNunzio #5) by Lisa Scottoline

Hardcover, 352 pages
Published August 15th 2017 by St. Martin's Press


Mary DiNunzio wants to represent her old friend Simon Pensiera, a sales rep who was wrongly fired by his company, but her partner Bennie Rosato represents the parent company. When she confronts Mary, explaining this is a conflict of interest, an epic battle of wills and legal strategy between the two ensues―ripping the law firm apart, forcing everyone to take sides and turning friend against friend.


My Thoughts…

Exposed is a legal thriller.    The plot has twists and turns that pull the reader in, pushes them to turn page after page, and make the reader unable to put the book down.    Lisa Scottoline is so talented.    There are surprises and there are expectations.  Most of all there are friendships and families.   

 While the story is based on being a lawyer and the legal system, the friendships are the best. Even when on opposite sides of the ethic code Mary and Bennie are friends before partners.   They work through their challenges and figure out a way to work together.   I love that Mary stood up to Bennie to help her family.    She knew that she was walking a narrow line but also knew that family had to come first.   

 I am legally challenged.    Being a non-lawyer reader I really appreciate how Lisa Scottoline manages to explain all the legalese without it becoming a non-fiction book.    She can take the storyline and explain it to the reader without adding too much extra to the dialogues.    

This series is wonderful.   Each book is an entire story with the familiar characters that have become friends of mine.    I highly recommend picking up your own copy of Exposed and reading it immediately.

Thank you John Karle at St. Martin's Press for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
