Accused, by Lisa Scottoline
I enjoy the Bennie Rosato books, even when Bennie herself isn't the center. Mary DiNunzio, new partner in the firm, is hired by Allegra Gardner, the 13-year old sister of a murdered girl, to prove the innocence of the man convicted of killing her. The girls' parents object, vehemently; and even Judy, Mary's best friend and usual partner in crime solving, thinks that Allegra has a screw loose and that Mary is too emotionally involved. Meanwhile, Mary gets engaged to Anthony, and that doesn't run too smoothly either.
