Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Quick, witty, flavorful and absorbing.”  Richard North Patterson, New York Times bestselling author of Fall from Grace
“Rita Morrone has a smart way with words and a shifty code of ethics, attributes that give this Philadelphia trail lawyer a jump on the legal competition.” New York Times Book Review
“Sharp, intelligent, funny, and hip...[Scottoline] gives fans of legal thrillers a good, twisty plot.” USA Today
“[A] fast-paced and witty crime thriller [that] features a smart-mouthed, poker-laying attorney…Scottoline has produced a royal flush in Running from the Law.” San Francisco Examiner
“Filled with fast-paced action, tantalizing plot twists, and the unforgettable Rita, Running from the Law is a completely satisfying novel of suspense and human drama.” Philadelphia Inquirer
“Mary Higgins Clark meets Susan Isaacs meets John Grisham.” Philadelphia Magazine
“Readers of courtroom fiction will love this latest by Scottoline.” Library Journal
“The novel is more than a legal thriller. It’s also a good story about trust and relationships. The best scenes are explosive exchanges between Rita and her live-in lover, the judge’s son. Here Karen Allen’s narration is superb as she delivers each verbal blow with passion and conviction. Allen also maintains a good pace as she goes from the tension in the courtroom to the human passions outside. This is a good audio presentation, which lifts a well-crafted story to a higher level.” AudioFile
