Daddy’s Girl by Lisa Scottoline **** (of 4)

It’s the usual Scottolini fare:  shrimpy, gutsy, wise-cracking lawyer (Penn professor of law in this case) without a decent boyfriend gets caught up in violent crime in Philadelphia.   In this case, Natalie Greco endures a prison riot while teaching a prison class on justice and then witnesses a murder mid-mayhem.  Scottolini is maturing as a writer, taking more risks, and having more fun.  January 2009.
