Natalie Greco loves being a law professor, even though she can't keep her students from cruising during class. She loves her family, too, but as a bookworm, doesn't quite fit in. Then, when a colleague talks Nat into teaching a class at a local prison, her comfortably imperfect world turns upside down.

A violent prison riot breaks out, and in the chaos, Nat rushes to help a grievously injured guard. Before he dies, he asks her to deliver a cryptic message: "Tell my wife it's under the floor."

The dying declaration plunges Nat into a nightmare. Suddenly, the girl who has always followed the letter of the law finds herself suspected of a brutal murder. Forced into hiding to stay alive, she sets out to save herself by deciphering the puzzle behind the dead guard's last words . . . and learns the secret behind the greatest puzzle of all--herself.

Law professor Natalie Greco has an ordered life. She feels a passion for teaching, especially her arcane seminar on the History of Justice, even though the course is pathetically undersubscribed in the high-powered law school. She has an attentive boyfriend and a protective family, although her testosterone-fuelled big brothers and very successful parents tend to overlook the quiet Nat. Then one terrible day, everything changes. Nat accompanies her colleague Angus to a prison in Chester County where he’s a guest lecturer. It’s a nice day for a drive through the countryside, the site for much Underground Railroad activity during the Civil War. However, the trip turns grim when they arrive at the prison, hardly inside before the speaker system announces a “disturbance” and orders a lockdown. They’re smack in the middle of a riot. In front of a horrified Nat, a prison guard is fatally injured. Nat rushes to help him, only to hear his last words: “Tell my wife. It’s under the floor. The money.” At that moment, reinforcements arrive, the riot is quelled, and Nat and Angus are escorted out of the building by U.S. marshals. Remembering the dying guard’s words, Nat feels she must find his widow. But this is no simple quest, and along the way, Nat is framed for murder and the retiring scholar finds herself in a desperate fight to save her own life. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

  • By marjorie narey on 26 November 2010

    I have never read a Lisa Scottoilne book before and I picked up this one with reservations as to whether or not it would be to my liking.By Chapter three I was hooked.A diminutive law professor Nat Greco is invited by a law colleague and friend Angus Holt to lecture at a minimum security prison. She is sceptical but accepts the invitation and goes along.Whilst they are there a "lockdown" occurs and from that moment on Nat's world goes from one nightmare scenario to another.Fast paced, intriguing and peppered with just the right flavour of humour, this book will take you along for the ride. Well written and totally consistent throughout, it is a real page turner.Thoroughly enjoyable. Recommended

    Nat Greco is a mousy law historian who discovers her own strength when she ends up in a prison helping a friend with teaching inmates, and there is a riot. Some nice twists, and the Underground Railroad, too. Scottoline's Philly shtick is lightly but effectively applied as her protagonist stops being a joke.
