Mary DiNunzio is back for more.
Published in 2004 by HarperCollins
Killer Smile continues on with several familiar themes in Scottoline's books. Once again Bennie Rosato's all female (with the exception of an office manager) law firm swings into action in a case involving the Italian neighborhods of Phialadelphia. Mary DiNunzio, Scottoline's original character is back with a pro bono case based in history. Some Italians were sent to internment camps during World War II (much like the Japanese camps but not nearly as numerous) and this is at least the second book that focuses on this sad fact of American history.
DiNunzio is investigating the mysterious death of a prisoner in an Italian internment camp, despite the 60+ year time lag. And, it turns out that some people do not want this old case solved and are willing to use violence to keep Mary away.
This is a fun, quick read - great escapist reading.
I rate this book 4 stars out of 5.
This book is available at Amazon.com here: Killer Smile.
