Best-selling author Lisa Scottoline draws on her experience as a trial lawyer to create memorable legal thrillers. In The Vendetta Defense, she offers an intriguing look at the moral and legal ethics of both courtroom procedure and personal vengeance. Lawyer Judy Carrier lands the case of a lifetime when she agrees to defend 80-year-old "Pigeon Tony" Lucia, arrested for the death of Angelo Coluzzi. Judy's only problem is that Pigeon Tony freely admits to the killing. He claims it's merely the justified response to a vendetta begun by Coluzzi over 50 years ago. Now Judy is caught in the middle of a life-and-death blood feud, where the rule of law means nothing next to the heat of vengeance. Following in the wake of her New York Times best-seller Moment of Truth, The Vendetta Defense is Lisa Scottoline's most compelling thriller yet, a thought-provoking mix of history and contemporary legal ethics. Barbara Rosenblat's brilliant narration captures all the growing suspense-both in and out of the courtroom.
