Daddy's Girl

Title: Daddy's Girl

Author: Lisa Scottoline

Type: Suspense/Mystery

Book Type: Paperback

Pages: 416

Synopsis: Natalie Greco is a law professor who is talked into teaching a class at a local prison by her colleague Angus Holt. This decision turns her life upside-down. While there a violent prison riot breaks out. During the chaos, Natalie rushes to help a grievously injured prison guard. Before he dies, he asks her to deliver a cryptic message with his last words: "Tell my wife it's under the floor." This plunges Nat into a nightmare. Suddenly, she (who is a 'follow the rules' kind of girl) finds herself suspected of a brutal murder and encounters threats to her own life.

Now not only are the cops after her, but ruthless killers are desperate to keep her from exposing their secret. In the meantime, she gets dangerously close to Angus which threatens to harm her relationship with her boyfriend. With her love life in jeopardy, her career in the balance, and her life on the line, Nat must figure out how to get herself out of the mess she's in by deciphering the puzzle behind the dead guard's last words.

My Thoughts: I love Lisa Scottoline. She's a wonderful suspense writer who always keeps you on the edge of your seat. She always has you thinking that you've figured it out ... then she throws an ingenious twist at you and gets you thinking something totally different. I highly recommend Scottoline (especially this book) if you're in the mood for some action and suspense.

My Rating: 4/5 stars
