Overview

This CD audiobook features the author's signature on the cover.

In the new thriller audiobook from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline, Mary DiNunzio’s ruthless nemesis Nick Machiavelli is back...with a vengeance.

Machiavelli, a corrupt lawyer, aggressively strikes close to the DiNunzio household, attacking Mary’s father and one of their beloved family friends by filing a lawsuit that accuses them of embezzling from the treasury of a local South Philly social club to which they belong. The lawsuit is frivolous, but Machiavelli ups the ante by spreading rumors that support its allegations, muddying the reputation of Mary's father.

The claims shake the DiNunzio clan to its foundations, threatening her father's weakening heart, and Mary steps in to fight back. But Machiavelli is a more than worthy adversary. Then the unthinkable happens, and Mary goes to her own dark side, finding a part of herself that makes her more fearsome than ever before. Is it still a battle between good and evil, when good turns evil? And will Mary be able to find herself, before she loses her soul completely?

Feared, the sixth entry in the acclaimed Rosato & DiNunzio series, expertly explores what happens when we are tempted to give in to our own inner darkness.

Another winner in the Rosato and DiNunzio series! Murder and mayhem ensues as the team at Rosato and DiNunzio attempts to discover the real motive behind a gender discrimination suit filed against them. Along with battling attorney Evil Incarnate while being represented by a Zen-like malpractice attorney, they must discover exactly what happened to their (male) associate, who drafted an elegant complaint against two giant software firms. Throw in a large Italian family, an advanced pregnancy, and the Rosary Society, and you have a book that will keep you turning pages to the very end. In the interest of full disclosure, I received a free digital copy of this title to review from Net Galley. #Feared#NetGalley

Surprise surprise. Never saw it coming. This is another great Rosato and DiNunzio story. This is a story about relationships. It’s very entertaining and emotional. One heck of a law firm. You will open to the first page and not want to put it down. I won’t spoil the story, but, I will say that you will learn that there’s more to Judy than you thought. Lisa does it again. I love her books, and you will too. If this is the first one for you, you’ll want to read more.

A welcome addition to the Rosato & DiNunzio series. This time around they are being sued for reverse discrimination because they are an all female law firm. Great characters, plot twists and enough red herrings to keep you guessing. Highly recommended.

Scottoline never fails to deliver an amazing thriller. Feared is one of my favorites in this series!! Another unusual legal quandary or three - and more insight into some of our beloved characters, too. There is a reason she is one of my favorite authors!! Thanks to #NetGalley for the opportunity to preview #Feared by @LisaScottoline

I have followed Lisa Scottoline's writing since I first discovered her years ago. Rosato & DiNunzio novels are my favorites. These characters are people you know or have known or want to know. Mary is from such an uber Philly Italian family! The interactions amongst the characters in any one of the books can't be beat, and this book is no exception and probably proves the rule. This book introduces new characters and takes us back to some of our not so favorite characters as well. Surprises abound! I love that no matter how horrible the circumstances, and some are truly horrible, there is a light thread of humor that always runs through the writing. This book is just so enjoyably readable that it is difficult to put down. I was fearful, I was shocked, I was wrong about some guesses, but I loved every minute of it and would recommend this book highly to anyone who enjoys stories about family, mysteries, legal thrillers, friendships. It's all in here. Enjoy. This book was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher.

I love Scottoline; and I am a huge fan of the Mary DiNunzio books! Mary's arch-rival, Nick Machiavelli, is at it again suing the law firm in a reverse-discrimination case. Mary, pregnant and tired, must fight to bring justice to the all woman firm. Scottoline's fast paced thriller is also packed with humorous antidotes that will leave the reader laughing out loud as she races to discover what happens next. A truly enjoyable read!

Feared by Lisa Scottoline is a highly recommended legal thriller and the 6th in the series featuring Bennie Rosato, Mary DiNunzio, and Judy Carrier. Three men are suing the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm for reverse sex discrimination, claiming that the firm wouldn't hire them because they are men. The men's lawyer is Nick Machiavelli. Machiavelli is out for vengeance after previously losing a case to Mary. The whole purpose of this case is to destroy Rosato & DiNunzio. To complicate matters Rosato & DiNunzio's lone male employee, John Foxman, is quoted in the plaintiff's disclosure that he felt like an outsider. When asked about it, Foxman admits the truth to his statement and that he intends to resign. Then the case turns deadly. With her firm in danger and now murder is involved, Mary's health could be at risk due to the stress since she is seven month's pregnant. Now Mary must figure out what Machiavelli is up too with filing this false complaint and solve a murder. Machiavelli has made his stance clear with his news conferences and playing up to the media to impinge the Rosato & DiNunzio firm. The firm’s hired defense attorney Roger Vitez, who wants them to go on with their business as usual and play it cool, claims he knows how to handle the case. Feared is wildly entertaining and the story propels forward with a sunny style, even when things are looking dark. (You know, if you follow the series, that it will turn out okay in the end.) Mary's large, diverse Italian-American family and her South Philly neighborhood is as much a character as all the Tonys. The characters are smart and diverse. There is humor along with the seriousness of the plot. But this is an ongoing series and fans have expectations that are met in Feared. Even if you haven't read any of the previous books in the series, you could jump in with this one as enough backstory is provided. It must be said it is not a perfect novel. There was simply too much preoccupation with Mary's pregnancy and it becomes a tad bit annoying - Mary constantly mentions how huge she is and her pregnancy is the first thing on everyone's mind. The large-Italian-American-family-in-your-business stuff seems overdone and almost a stereotype. The plot twist and game changer is very convenient and a little unbelievable. However, setting aside those few concerns, Feared is an easy-to-read, very entertaining diversion and is a great choice for a relaxing, light summer read.

Feared – Lisa Scottoline I was fortunate to receive this novel as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review. Bennie, Mary & Judy are back as the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm finds themselves under fire… A warm celebration of Mary’s impending motherhood is being celebrated within the walls of the law offices, when a messenger arrives with packages for each of the female members of the team. As the courier departs he tells them that they’ve been served. In the midst of preparing for an anti-trust trial, the team is astounded to discover that they are being sued for reverse sex discrimination. Additionally, they learn that the suit is being brought against them by Mary’s nemesis, Nick Machiavelli, and that comments made by their lone male attorney, John Foxman, may be partially to blame. Shortly thereafter, John Foxman leaves the firm and the group is subjected to a plethora of bad press, interviews, and news write ups designed to discredit the agency. As Bennie and her team prepare to fight back, they hire their own attorney – and begin their own investigation. But then, a death occurs – and Bennie’s own team becomes suspect… As always, a fabulous read by Lisa Scottoline! Full of the characters, legalese and prose you’ve come to love, this book does not disappoint!! I couldn’t put it down!!

As with many of the reviewers of this book, this is my first time to read a Lisa Scottoline book. At first I didn't think I would like it. In fact I even stopped reading it at about 15% to read another book. When I started reading Feared again, I was pleasantly surprised. The plot was well written. There was romance, mystery, murder, legal intrigue, and dealing with a large Italian family. I couldn't put the book down. As I got to know the characters I found that I liked some, others not so much. But they were all interesting. It was a great book. I'm glad I finished it. I received this arc from NetGalley for an honest review.

I am a big fan of this series as the characters are so well developed that the reader can’t wait to catch up with their latest story. In the newest book of the Rosato & DiNunzio series, Bennie, Mary, Judy and Anne are not only attorneys but this time they are also the defendents! They are being sued for reverse sex discrimination and the plaintiff’s attorney is none other than Mary’s old nemesis, Nick Machiavelli. While this is clearly not true to fans of the series it has the potential to ruin both the reputation of the women personally and the law firm itself. In true fashion, Ms. Scottoline has many twists and turns throughout the book along with many familiar characters and I don’t use that term loosely! I was riveted by this book and didn’t get much sleep until I finished reading it. Well done!

In the sixth Rosato and DiNunzio book, the firm is sued directly by Mary’s archnemesis, Nick Machiavelli. Three male plantiffs are alleging gender hiring discrimination and using the words of the firm’s sole male attorney against them. Hiring Roger Vitez to defend them, the firm is shocked to discover a murder. Now rushing to save their firm and find a killer, Bennie, Mary and Judy makes some strange bedfellows in Feared. Mary’s Tony-filled family is always a treat. Her pragnancy issues are played mostly for laughs. However, there are plenty of twists for thriller fans. A good entry to the series with no spoilers to earlier books, Feared is highly recommended to thriller and Lisa Scottoline fans. 4 stars! Thanks to the publisher, St. Martin’s Press, and NetGalley for an advanced copy.

There are some authors that I can always count on to provide a great read and Lisa Scottoline is at the top of that list. Her Rosato & DiNunzio series is one that is always enjoyable. The more of them the read, the more I love them, as I am more invested the more I get to know the characters. The storyline for this one was unique, as it was about a male that sues for reverse discrimination and the actions that occur in the firm because of this, including their only male employee stating he wants to resign due to there being some truth to the claims. The plot moves along fast and the characters are well developed.

An All Female Law Firm is Sued for Discrimination Mary DiNunzio and Bennie Rosato, are proud of the law firm they started. It was all female lawyers, but they do have one male attorney, John Croft. He seems happy with the firm, but when the firm is sued by three lawyers for discrimination because they weren’t hired, Mary and Bennie discover that not everything is as rosy as it seems. Nick Machiavelli, a lawyer Mary has tangled with before, is behind the law suit. Mary beat him once, and now he wants revenge. Mary and Bennie think they are secure. They have John, but suddenly he quits. Now they have a real perception problem. Mary is heavily pregnant which adds to the difficulty of fighting a lawsuit, but she manages to use it to her advantage. She and Bennie are sympathetic characters trying to make their place in what was once a man’s world. One of the interesting parts of the book is showing the reaction of the men, John and Mary’s husband, to taking a secondary role to the ladies in their lives. It was well done and makes you think. I love Mary’s South Philadelphia family. You have to laugh out loud at her father and his friends, the Tonys. It feels very real to be almost a part of that family. If you enjoy a mystery with characters you can enjoy, this is a good read. I received this book from Net Galley for this review.

Another amazing twisted read from Lisa. Thrilled to revisit the old neighborhood with all the family, neighbor and friend craziness that only Mary's neighborhood in South Phillie can bring. Along with that Mary is pregnant, they are facing a lawsuit, an employee in murdered and they're in the middle of a major litigation and Mary's instincts point her in one direction. Back to the old neighborhood and their long time nemesis Machiavelli. Perfect name for the bad guy. Why did I love the Rosary society ladies so much? This story has the best of everything, laughs, tension, suspense, sadness. Mary working through things with Anthony and being pregnant. The whole office has so much going on, Judy, oh how I loved her. She's always right there. I can't say enough good things about this book, it's Lisa at her best as always. She's such a great author and her stories mesh the personal side with the plot. Not many authors can pull that off smoothly and Lisa is stellar. I loved this book and the epilogue. Heavy happy sigh! **arc from Net Galley and Publisher for an honest review**

Feared is the latest in the Rosato and DiNunzio series. An old nemesis is trying to drive their firm out of business and ruin their reputation. Emotions run high because this time it’s personal. A mostly female cast of characters who are smart, strong and know how to kick butt. I loved DiNunzio’s Italian-American family and neighbors who are so supportive and full of life and love. I also like the author’s take on solving the murder, that “Justice is only a consolation prize.” To me that rings so true. I’d never really thought of it in that way before. The story gets better and better the further you get into the book. It was so good I just had to stay up late to finish it. It’s a legal battle and murder mystery all rolled up into one satisfying read. Another of Lisa Scottoline’s trademark twisty legal thrillers that will not disappoint her many fans and is sure to win her new ones.

FEARED. Scottoline Bennie, Mary and Judy being sued, sex discrimination, not hiring males lawyers. The one they had, is murdered, who will be accused. Add to this the legal dialog of lawyers, and the case. The fun side is Mary’s family.Good plot, with a good legal case to follow, and murder, is part of a series, it can be read alone. Given ARC by Net Galley and St. Martin’s Press. For my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

Scottoline knocks it out of the park with her latest Rosato and Denunzio legal thriller! Her acerbic wit adds to the story of the firm being sued, an associate being murdered and Mary being pregnant. What is most memorable about the book is the family relationships and the support of Mary’s family, no matter what she is going through. It is also the family relationship that Mary establishes with Judy, determined to help her during a great loss as well as to act as her friend and loyal supporter. It was relevant that two law firms were suing each other at the same time that Bennie’s firm was filing a huge lawsuit against a tech firm, so that was a very modern touch. The author’s knowledge of law practice is very evident in this novel, shown directly in the dialog between the characters, in the police station and in court. Fans of Scottoline will definitely want to read this new installment of the series, and new fans will be thrilled to find someone who writes with expertise about lawyers and their dealings with each other. The whole book was a delight to read, with fast-paced action and cutting-edge banter between the characters. Scottoline is a master at the craft of drawing the reader in quickly and keeping them enthralled throughout the story. I highly recommend this book!

4.5 Stars: I have been a big fan of the legal thrillers penned by Lisa Scottoline and this one was an enjoyable read, as I expected. It was not one of the best in the series, but it was still a fun visit with the ladies and gentlemen of Mary DiNunzio's world. In this book Nick Machiavelli has sued the three partners of the law firm for sex discrimination. The one male lawyer in the firm, John Foxman, causes issues when it is revealed that he is looking for a job elsewhere and that he feels uncomfortable working at a firm of all women. Mary and Nick have had problems in the past and the ladies are sure this is personal, and that he has manufactured the suit. It is up to them, particularly Mary, to figure out what is going on. When a death occurs, it ramps up the immediacy of solving this case. One of the things I love about these books is Mary's neighborhood, with all the characters, friends, her parents and other neighbours. It is a huge, Italian group where they may not be related by blood, but they are related by love. The nicknames are priceless. Mary is pregnant and due to deliver any day when this case hits, and the concern and nosiness is fun and refreshing. It reminds me a lot of the family in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", except that they're Italian. Mary, Benny and Judy are great colleagues. Benny is not that friendly with the others, but Mary and Judy have a special relationship and that buoys both ladies up when they are in trouble. They are also smart, tenacious and loyal to one another which makes for a great firm. The case is solved in an unconventional and unexpected way, with the reason behind the suit not being what anyone thought is was. Overall, Feared is a fun, easy to read, legal thriller with colorful characters that had me laughing out loud at the humor. Although you can read this book as a standalone, I recommend that you start at the beginning so you don't miss any of the fun.

FEARED is a beautifully crafted novel. I especially like the diverse group of people portrayed in this novel, and Mary DiNunizo’s parents are at their top performance -- once again. The main storyline plot weaves around personal events going on with the main characters. I consider this novel to be a page turner, and the whodunit revelation caught me completely off guard/by surprise. Excellent story -- thanks!
