Corrupted by Lisa Scottoline is a captivating lawyer story through and through. So much so that I read all 500+ pages in less than two days.
What I disliked: I disliked the romance. It was in there for a purpose, but it kind of rolled off like my 90 year old granny describing a tryst she had in her 30s. I also disliked the baby. Always a book wrecker for me. There were so many details. If a character was in the book for a paragraph or less, at least 3/4 of the paragraph described what he or she was wearing. Also the end. Kind of.
What I liked: I liked the court room suspense, the girl power lawyer as lead, and the true life story it referenced to. I liked the feelings of fixing something broken and flawed. I liked the many inferences to different ways to perceiving law and justice. (I had a copy in my hand so didn’t Kindle highlight favorites. Kind of wish I did now.)
Where to find it: I bought mine on a whim at the local grocery store as I had liked a previous Lisa Scottoline book. You can get a Kindle copy for less than $9. If you’re looking for a courtroom lawyer story, then it’s definitely worth the price.
