Book Description


See all titles by Lisa Scottoline.

Cate Fante is strong and smart, but when she becomes a federal judge, even she wonders if she can do the job justice. She's in her thirties, so she feels as though she's joining the world's most exclusive retirement village. She worries inwardly that she only looks the part, in a designer suit donned like overpriced armor. After all, a job described in the United States Constitution would intimidate anybody.

But Cate keeps her doubts a secret. And, as it happens, much else. For she leads a dark double life that she hides from everyone, even her best friend.

Then a high-profile case in her courtroom explodes into a shocking murder-suicide, and it blasts her cover wide open. Overnight the tabloids tell her secrets, her boyfriend dumps her, and her new career hangs in tatters. But Cate's troubles are only beginning. An enemy no one anticipated sends her running for her life -- -embarking on a journey that begins in the mystery of her own childhood, where she first learned to lie. She'll have to fight her way back to the truth, or die trying.

Dirty Blonde is Lisa Scottoline's most suspenseful and gripping thriller to date. Mixing poignancy with her trademark wit and wonderfully compelling characters, it showcases her remarkable talents as never before, and questions whether law and justice are always the same thing.

5 of 5 Dirty Blond / Mystery April 25, 2010
Reviewer: M. CLEMENT from COLLEGE STATION, TX United States  
Cate Fante has attained her goal of becoming a federal judge in Phildelphia. One of her first cases involves a Hollywood producer, Art Simone and an ex-prosecutor Richard Marz who accuses Simone of stealing his idea for the successful Philadelphia-based TV series, Attorneys@Law. Cate dismisses the case.  Simone is murdered, and the day after, it is reported tha Marz has committed suicide.  Detective Russo, the hopeful consultant for the series shows up at Cate's house and accuses her of being a crooked judge. Detective Russo goes rogue stealing surveillance documents revealing Cate's secret life of picking up strangers at bars for one-night stands. Russo accuses Cate of hiring the murders and starts trying to kill Cate.
The FBI is called in to protect Cate and the Senior Federal Judge in Philadelphia tells Cate to resign or he will remove her from the bench.  Though  Cate's history and reason for her self-destructive behavior is not thoroughly revealed. An excellent stand-along novel.
