Book Description

Mary DiNunzio is trying to make partner in her cutthroat Philadelphia law firm. She's too busy to worry about the crank phone calls that she's been getting—until they fall into a sinister pattern. Mary can't shake the sensation that someone is watching her. Following her every move. Then the shadowboxing turns deadly, and she has to fight for something a lot more important than a partnership—her life.



Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Edgar Award nominee (for her first legal thriller, Everywhere That Mary Went), Lisa Scottoline actually won the Edgar for her follow-up, Final Appeal. With five legal thrillers behind her, Scottoline--a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School--has joined the league of lawyers-turned-literaries.

Her voice in Final Appeal is crisp and wry; of the law clerks in her office, the narrator declares that she's got "pantyhose with more mileage ... and better judgment."

Lawyer and single mom Grace Rossi has taken a part-time job in a federal appeals court. Her lover and boss, the chief judge, is found dead, and Rossi plays the sleuth. As her previous bestsellers, Scottoline can create feisty female characters who struggle with a variety of issues, producing a fast-paced, well-structured read.

From Publishers Weekly

This tale of corporate intrigue centers on Mary DiNunzio, a lawyer on the partner track at one of Philadelphia's top law firms, and her secret admirer/stalker. Mary, stressed by nature of her occupation, first shrugs off silent phone calls to her home and office that are eerily in sync with her comings and goings. Soon, however, when she starts getting personal notes, too, she starts to suspect her co-workers. When Brent Polk, her good friend and secretary, is killed by a car that's been following Mary around, she goads police detective Lombardo to check for similarities between his death and that of her husband a year earlier. Soon follows a chain of strange discoveries: after sleeping with friend and associate Ned Waters, she finds anti-depressants in his medicine chest; Ned's wife-beating father manages a rival law firm; a partner has been tampering with her files. An increasingly paranoid Mary cuts off relations with Ned, whom she suspects of being her stalker. But she doesn't act on her suspicions until it's nearly too late and she must fight for her life. Lawyer Scottoline's first novel is an engaging, quick read, sprinkled with corny humor and melodrama in just the right proportions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mary's no lamb December 23, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lisa Scottoline in her debut Everywhere That Mary Went introduces feisty Mary DiNunzio of South Philadelphia. Mary is a recently widowed, soon to be made partner of a prestigious law firm. Mary is also being stalked. She is receiving prank phone calls, notes and being followed by a car. She is getting spooked and beginning to wonder if the stalker could have been the hit and run driver who killed her husband.
She has two good friends who are very interesting characters, Brent, her secretary and Judy, fellow lawyer. She also has a new love interest who she is afraid may be the stalker.
Overall the book is a well planned and paced mystery, with characters who are interesting and entertaining. Book is not deeply intellectual, but that is not why one would read a book such as this. It has good entertainment value.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent but not great January 14, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mary DiNunzio is an associate at a reputable Philadelphia law firm and is arguing a motion in court for the second time. She is nervous, but well prepared. When the judge embarasses her by making her sing her client's jingle in open court she is reminded of how hard she has to work to impress and succeed in a profession dominated by men. She workes tirelessly everyday while also dealing with the memory of her husband who was killed less than a year prior in a hit and run car crash.

When Mary wins her motion she is, at first, elated, but when mysterious unsigned notes start showing up in her mail she worries that they might be tied to a recent string of hangup calls she is receiving. Then her male secretary is killed before her eyes in a hit and run crash that is eerily similar to the death of her beloved husband. She takes comfort in the arms of Ned Waters, coworker and law school classmate. But what she initially takes for love and affection may prove to be more than is appropriate in a healthy relationship. Mary finds herself looking over her shoulder trying to determine who, if anyone is out to get her and what their motive is. All the while, she is focused on preventing these threats from interfering with her continuing on the law firm partership track.

This is Lisa Scottoline's first novel that introduces Mary and Judy Carrier, each who play prominently in this series of legal thrillers that features strong female lawyers. The book is an easy read and fairly entertaining. I also continue to enjoy how Scottoline changes the narrator and point of view for each book, but continues to include the same cast of characters and revolve around their interactions and legal achievements.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Mystery That Nails Big Law Firm Life July 30, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With intelligent humor and an eagle eye trained on life in the trenches of big firms, Scottoline delivers a can't-put-it-down mystery centering on a litigator in Philadelphia. Recently-widowed Mary DiNunzio, who now shares her apartment with only an indifferent cat, starts receiving strange messages and telephone calls. When she is followed by an unknown person in a non-descript dark car, and her apartment is entered, things start becoming alarming. Since Mary is up for partnership at Stalling & Webb, she suspects that the culprit may be a competitor, or someone else who is attempting to thwart her ambitions.

The novel's best feature is its on-the-nose description of law firm life. Any female litigator who has spent some time in court will wince with recognition at the opening chapter. One need not have been actually forced to sing to recognize the hubris of certain judges as it is played out in motion practice. And how's this analysis of how a firm runs:

"I walk back to my office. I've done my job, which is to make Martin look good. That's why he goes alone to Berkowitz's office, to take credit for the writ. Likewise, since Martin's raison d'etre is to make Berkowitz look good, he'll let Berkowitz take the credit when he telephones Harbison's General Counsel. Because Berkowitz has made the GC look good to his CEO, the GC will send him more cases. ASAP. And partners who bring in the most business make the most money."

Game, set and match.

My only slight disappointment with this book is that while you will keep guessing "who done it," the ending is somewhat contrived -- it does not make too much sense that the guilty party would be who she or he is. As in all good mysteries, however, the ends are neatly tied up. This book is a great first novel by one who would soon thereafter win an Edgar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Secrecy That Seduces From The Beginning! July 12, 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lisa Scottoline's first novel is quite an accomplishment. A story that is gripping and gives you clues but not in an obvious way. I was surprised until the "big revelation." The characters are not super-human. They are regular people which lends to the authentic feel.
Mary DiNuzio is a litigator on the fast track to partnership in a top lawfirm in Philly. Mary has thrown herself into her work after her husband's unexpected death. We are first endeared to Mary as she is asked to sing by a judge during a hearing. She wins the motion on her arguement but this shows her understanding of how the game is played.
She starts to get the feeling that someone is watching her. Mary starts getting notes and calls where no one speaks but is still on the phone. A suspicious car is also seen frequently as Mary goes around down. Eventually the police are called but they don't really believe her accusations.
Mary has a male secretary named Brent. He keeps her sane, safe, and on track to make partner. Mary's best friend, Judy, is also concerned about the calls, notes, and car following Mary. They work together to figure out who is sending notes to Mary and following her around in car.
There are glimpes of Mary twin sister, Angie, and her parents. A new love interest, from the lawfirm , keeps us guessing about his motives.
These characters are woven around Mary like a cocoon. The pacing of the activites are so craftly written. Watching the story unfold is like driving in traffic. Sometimes you feeling like you're moving along, the next minute you're getting cutoff, and lastly you just don't move. A wonderful mystery for those who enjoy a challange.
