Dirty Blonde by Lisa Scottoline is a wonderful legal thriller/mystery. The protagonist, Cate Fante, is a newly appointed federal judge. The plot begins with a suit by the creator of a the idea for a successful TV series against the production company. The legal battle seamlessly transitions into a murder/suicide. This becomes a crazy-cop-pursuing-a-innocent-fugitive drama, and then back to the murder mystery and after several suspects are found innocent, a surprise turn reveals the murderer. All of this action is intertwined with Cate's love life.
A well written, carefully plot, quick moving thriller. A pleasure to read.
