Criminal lawyer Marta Richter is just hours away from winning an acquittal for her latest client, millionaire businessman Elliot Steere. As the jury begins to deliberate, Steere lets slip that he's duped Marta with a false self-defence claim and that in fact he murdered the homeless man who tried to carjack him. In a race against time and the worst blizzard Philadelphia has seen in years, a furious Marta resolves to discover the evidence that will convict Steere before the jury returns with its verdict.
When Benedetta "Bennie" Rosato, managing partner of Rosato & Associates, realises Marta is bent on convicting her own client and ruining the law firm in the process, she acts to thwart Marta's plans and bring Steere to justice in her own way. But Elliot Steere won't let anyone stand between him and freedom. Even from his jail cell, he has the cunning and connections to kill again . . .
A stunning legal thriller, 'Rough Justice' launches a riveting new series and establishes Lisa Scottoline as an undisputed leader in one of fiction's hottest genres.
