Running from the Law, by Lisa Scottoline

Running from the Law, by Lisa Scottoline

This felt like a novelization of a McBride movie mystery on the Hallmark Channel: enjoyable, but not going to win any awards. A maverick lawyer defends the father of her lover—an important judge—of sexual harassment, which quickly escalates to murder. With an eccentric supporting cast and a twist right before every commercial break, the plot moves along quickly, culminating in an ill-advised scheme to entrap the killer. This is an entertaining read, mental candy well-suited for a rainy afternoon and a stiff drink.

First Sentence:
Any good poker player will tell you the secret to a winning bluff is believing it yourself.
