Exposed is the 5th installment in the Rosato and DeNunzio series by award-winning author Lisa Scottolini. Mary DiNunzio’s family, which includes her parent’s lifelong friends, wouldn’t hear of anyone except Mary representing Simon Pensiera, when he is fired wrongly by his company, and she is comfortable doing it. However, her partner, Bennie Rosato already represents the parent company and sees it as a conflict of interest. Mary’s ties with Pensiera are so close, that she may decide to leave the firm rather than send him to another attorney. Friend and friend – partner and partner are pitted against each other and the firm is in danger of going under since Mary and Bennie are strong willed and absolutely sure they are doing the right thing for themselves. The stakes are high, and both partners are in danger, since there is more to the cases than meets the eye, including intrigue, danger, and corruption.

Anyone familiar with Scottolini, knows that her characters are well-developed, and that she is an expert in telling a story and weaving in palpable suspense. This is also true in Exposed, and readers will be kept on edge throughout the novel. Readers will be able to see both sides of the picture, and will find themselves taking sides. The series is excellent, and those who haven’t read the previous novels will find themselves picking them up and having a Lisa Scottolini marathon.

Besides plenty of suspense, Scottolini has allowed her characters to exhibit human emotions similar to what most of us would experience if put in the same situations. Readers will be able to relate and will see the characters as real.

Anyone who is not familiar with this series is missing some excellent reading. Exposed is highly recommended.
