Lisa Scottoline is a new to me author. This review is based on the unabridged audio book, which is read by Barbara Rosenblat.
Natalie Greco, is a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania. When another professor, Angus Holt invites her to join him in teaching a class at a local prison, she agrees. A riot breaks out while she is at the prison. When Nat is trying to help a badly injured guard, he whispers some dying last words to her "tell my wife it's under the floor".
Natalie has no clue what the message she's asked to deliver means, but evidently someone thinks she knows a bit too much. Before long, Natalie is suspected of murder, being pursued by the police, and, even some killers are after her.
Although the book has a few too many coincidences, Daddy's Girl was still and entertaining thriller. The reader Barbara Rosenblat was excellent. She injected humor at times, and did a great job changing her voice to fit the cast of characters. The story was just so so, but still it was a fun listening experience. (BTW: I read that the author really is an adjunct professor at The University of Pennsylvania).
