|Plot Summary of Rough Justice|
Marta Richter sits across from her millionaire client, Elliot Steere, when he confesses that the murder he is on trial for he actually did commit rather that it being accidental, as he has claimed all along. Marta cannot believe her ears, but the more he talks the madder she gets with feelings of deception. But what can be done; the trial is over and the jury has been sent to deliberate. As she leaves the client/attorney booth Marta decides she will prove that Steere is guilty.
Attorney Marta all but has her client Steere acquitted of murder when he confesses he did the murder. Betrayed, and ashamed of dealing with a murderer, Marta sets off to prove her client guilty while the jury is out deliberating the verdict. Trapped by the law against doing anything against her client she treads a thin line of legal maneuvering and out of court antics.
This synopsis report prepared by Liz Pursley
Lisa Scottoline is the kind of author you want to read
everything she wrote once you read any of her books. In
Rough Justice, you laugh and feel cold and feel as if the
characters are friends of yours. They really seem real.
It's the kind of book that makes your bump faster when
great scenes happen. A wonderful book, from the best Legal
Thriller author of the world!
