Lisa Scottoline's LADY KILLER proves that an audiobook can surpass its print version. Kate Burton does an incredible job bringing the characters of South Philly to life. The voices, the accents, the colloquialisms are perfect. I knew these people. I grew up with them. There's Trish "Trash" Gambone, Tony-From-Down-The-Block, and a dozen others that make this book a joy. Burton makes these characters so real you can smell the provolone. The heroine, lawyer Mary DiNunzio, finally proves herself to old high school rivals, the "mean girls," when she helps out a woman presumed murdered by her mobbed-up husband. Hey—you got a problem with that? M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 08]
