Patrick O’Brien, ten years old, is a natural target in school. He attempts to hide his first-grade reading level from everyone: his classmates, his grandfather who looks after him, and the instructors who are meant to help him. He is shy, dyslexic, and undersized for his age. When Patrick is accused of assaulting a school assistant, though, the real turmoil begins.Damgaed by Lisa Scottoline is very thrilling and adventurous.

The assistant leaves right away and files a lawsuit against the youngster, his family, and the school district. Patrick’s grandpa seeks assistance from Rosato & DiNunzio, and Mary DiNunzio is assigned to the case. Mary quickly emerges as Patrick’s genuine ally and his sole hope for safety and justice. However, there may be more to the story than meets the eye, and Patrick may be more troubled than he appears to shatter her heart…

With Lisa Scottoline’s trademark emotional depth and fast-paced action, Damaged will have readers riveted to the last page as they root for the beloved characters and their fight for justice. Mary DiNunzio, Philadelphia’s second-best lawyer, is ready to walk down the aisle when she becomes engrossed with the notion of becoming a mother, or at the very least a foster mother, beforehand.

Edward O’Brien, a retired accountant, is seeking Mary’s assistance in defending Patrick, his dyslexic 10-year-old grandson, against Steven Robertson, a teacher’s assistant at Grayson Elementary, who is suing Patrick for allegedly attacking him with a pair of scissors. Damgaed by Lisa Scottoline would entertain you.

Edward says that it’s all nonsense: Patrick, despite being constantly humiliated by his poor reading abilities, his tendency of puking when he’s agitated, and the relentless bullying he gets, wouldn’t harm a fly. Besides, Robertson’s suit is really a ruse to divert attention away from the fact that the last time he saw Patrick vomiting up, he hit him in the face, bruising him.

In reality, as Mary’s thorough investigation reveals, the situation is far worse; Robertson has sexually molested Patrick on at least three occasions. When Edward unexpectedly dies and Mary files an emergency appeal to become Patrick’s interim guardian, Robertson’s lawyer, Nick Machiavelli, ties Mary up in legal knots in order to substantiate his claim to direct lineage from the creator of Renaissance realpolitik.

Worse, there’s evidence that Edward’s death was a homicide, with Patrick as the prime suspect and Mary as the clear co-conspirator. Starting slowly, Scottoline expertly stokes the boiler to bursting point, and readers will stay up late watching Mary try to sweet-talk everyone from the family court judge to her fiance, Anthony Rotunno, who returns from a trip to California with a bombshell that forces him to re-imagine his life with Mary in radically new terms.

The problems aren’t sorted out nearly as meticulously as they’re built up, as is typical of Rosato & DiNunzio (Corrupted, 2015, etc.), and readers who hurry through the last hundred pages will be doing both themselves and Scottoline a favor. Damaged by Lisa is new edition in the thrilling an d world of supense.

Mary DiNunzio, a partner at the all-female legal firm Rosato & DiNunzio, is entangled in one of her most painful cases yet in Damaged. Mary becomes the guardian ad litem of her minor client after filing a lawsuit against the Philadelphia school district to receive aid for a middle school child with mental concerns.
As she battles Nick Machiavelli, her opposing attorney and the dark prince of South Philly lawyers who would use all means at his disposal to defeat her, she gets increasingly immersed in the case—and risks everything, including her long-term relationship with her long-time partner.

Despite the fact that this is the fourth book in the series, I elected to read it first when the opportunity presented. After reading the cover blurb, I assumed it would be comparable to the Law & Order franchise, which it most certainly was. This was the equivalent of having an episode that was extended to delve into more detail on the case’s individual characters, as well as a bit about the series’ recurring characters. While I’m sure there are certain themes that would have been better developed in prior novels, I didn’t feel at all lost reading this on its own.
