Corrupted (Rosario & DiNunzio Series, Book #3) by Lisa Scottoline
As the founder of the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm, Bennie Rosato hides her big heart beneath her tough-as-nails exterior, and she doesn't consider failure an option. Thirteen years ago, she took on the case of Jason Lefkavick, a twelve-year-old boy sent to a juvenile detention center for defending himself against a class bully. Bennie wasn't able to free Jason, and to this day, the case haunts her.
Jason spent his youth in and out of juvenile prison, and his adulthood hasn't been any easier. Bennie rarely takes on a murder case herself, but when Jason is indicted for killing the same bully he fought with all those years ago, she sees no choice but to represent him.
She doesn't know whether or not to believe Jason's claims of innocence, but she knows she owes him for past failures -- of the law, of the juvenile justice system, and of her own. Forced to relive the darkest period of her life, Bennie will do everything in her power to get the truth, and justice. Even if doing so means risking what matters most to her. Because there are a few secrets Bennie has herself, and one man who is the center of them.
Deeply emotional and filled with twists, Corrupted showcases the storytelling range and power of Lisa Scottoline.
