Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Scottoline's breathless new thriller doesn't make it easy for a female reader. The male-heavy cast of characters, including heroine Natalie Nat Greco's overly protective daddy and her sports crazy brother, have Rosenblat gruffing up enough to fray even the most flexible vocal chords. She must also keep readjusting her pacing as Nat stumbles from a quiet life as a law professor into a chaotic nightmare filled with prison riots, murders and life and love on the run. The fun and suspense begins when Nat is smitten with Angus Holt, a fellow prof who seems to be the antithesis of the men in her testosterone-filled family. Rosenblat gives the thoughtful, ponytailed Angus a voice so mellow you can almost smell his patchouli incense. Nat follows him to a teaching class at a local prison where a riot breaks out. A dying prison guard's whispered secret places Nat in ultimate jeopardy. From there, the mousy brunette law professor transforms herself into a blonde survivor who can dodge bullets, homicidal truckers and dogged lawmen. Scottoline provides the physical and psychological changes, but Rosenblat makes the metamorphosis credible by subtly replacing Nat's timid voice with one full of strength and determination.

From Booklist

Natalie "Nat" Greco's law students just aren't that interested in the history of justice, and she can't seem to find a way to reach them. Then a new teaching opportunity develops that would take her out of the University of Pennsylvania and into a local prison classroom. She opts for the dramatic change of scenery and soon finds herself in the middle of a prison melee, attempting to save the life of an injured prisoner, who makes a dying declaration intended for his wife. In attempting to deliver the bewildering message, Nat nearly gets herself killed and winds up being framed for murder. Ever concerned with justice, Nat goes on the lam as she tries to uncover the mystery of the prisoner's final words. Scottoline mixes stand-alones and her Rosato and Associates series in fairly even proportions, so series fans have learned to expect the occasional interruption. This one finds the author in good form, combining suspense- and character-building effectively. Like her heroine, Scottoline has recently begun to teach at Penn and is also embarking on another new project, a show for Court TV called Murder by the Book, featuring best-selling mystery writers presenting and discussing dramatizations of real-life crimes. She's already immensely popular, but expect the bump in exposure to bump up demand for her latest. Mary Frances Wilkens

After reading other books by this author, I must say I was greatly disappointed in this effort. For one, the dialogue was prosaic, the characters weren't all that likeable and the plot was way thin! The use of all caps was an irritating attempt to convey a characteristic that is unlikely (especially in this family) and only served to irritate this reader as it does when one sends emails in all caps to show emphasis.

Past novels by this author have shown a bright wit and great repartee between the characters. This time, these attributes were sorely missing. The heroine, Nat, was not believable in her endeavors and wasn't all that likeable either. It appeared to me that Ms. Scottoline was more interested in getting the book to print, than in creating a credible storyline with interesting characters.

I have read better books by Scottoline. In fact, I just finished Dirty Blonde and because I enjoyed the wit and plot, I bought this one as soon as it was available. I would rather wait longer between "good" novels and get the best Lisa Scottoline has to offer than have her pump out "poorly conceived" novels like an assembly line.

The title was a dud as well and had little to do with the plot. I look forward to better novels in the future as I know the talent is there.

Lisa Scottoline's 14th novel is much more than a murder mystery. It is the story of a woman, Natalie Greco, transforming herself from a timid young woman dominated by her boyfriend and family, into someone strong, self-assured, and confident whose father proudly proclaims her to be "Daddy's Girl." Within the first few pages Nat "Gnat" will be someone you'll want to spend time with; first out a sense of protectiveness (she's short and is easyly overlooked,) but eventually by telling her "you go girl!" Not only is this an exciting, completely credible work of fiction, Scottoline also gives the reader some of the fascinating history of the Underground Railroad. If you've read her other books you are in for a treat. If you are new to Scottoline this is a great place to start.

As a dedicated Scottoline fan, I enjoyed Daddys Girl immensely. Definitely one of the best in a great series.

Don't blame the author for the title. Ultimately the publisher gets the final word. And when deciding whether to buy this novel, with a highly visible author, do we really look at the title?

Mostly, I found this novel draws on many of Scottoline's recurring themes. For example:

Ordinary woman, extraordinary achievements: As usual, we're introduced to a very down-to-earth, very human heroine who also happens to be an achiever. If anything, Scottoline downplays the sheer magnitude of getting a tenure-track position in an Ivy League law school. She has the all too common worries about keeping up appearance and coping in a male-dominated world. Inside, she's conflicted. Outwardly, she's so accomplished she's scary.

Family: Scottoline's families tend to be large, Italian, loving and possessive. She departs from the profile here, introducing a macho family where the heroine feels like an outsider. Dysfunctional? In Scottoline's novels, whatever happens, blood will trump water anytime.

Outrageous risks: I love watching Scottoline's heroines cross over the edge as they go running from the law. In an earlier novel, a heroine takes over a conference room of a law firm, claiming to be from a branch office. Talk about "Hide in plain sight." Heroine Natalie goes out on a limb here. Alas, I can't say more without being accused of spoilers.

Intricate plot and satisfying ending: Scottoline keeps throwing one curve after another, right up to the end. Experienced mystery readers will get early hunches about the outcome, but it feels right.

Law vs. justice: An ongoing quest among Scottoline's novels.

Sometimes life makes you feel like you fell down a rabbit's hole, and that you have met the Mad Hatter. Nat Greco is an untenured assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Life is proceeding along somewhat normally until a colleague takes her along to a state correctional facility where he has a program of teaching and legal assistance. A prison riot breaks out. Nat is attacked. People are killed. Suddenly Nat finds herself drawn into a different world.

Something is going down, and Nat finds herself involved. She starts to get nosy, and finds herself falsely accused of murder, set up for unknown reasons. She finds herself on the run. Some people may think that she does stupid things, but her father sums it up when he tells her that she is book smart. She lacks the street smart abilities needed to survive in an urban jungle.

Nat, of course, must survive to get to a blazing finish. But wait, you thought the story ended with chapter 47. Chapter 48 goes in a whole new direction. You should know that the author always puts an unexpected twist at the end of her novels. Do NOT peek ahead. You need to read the entire novel to understand the real ending.

I would note that the author is an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, used as the setting for much of the story. The novel is well researched and well written. I think it is the best novel yet by the author.

I believe the meaning of the title is clear. People are trying to direct how she should do things (father knows best), while she is trying to go in her own direction. She has trouble getting people's attention.
