In a case steeped in blood and memory, It will take a stroke of brilliance to save Pigeon Tony. But if anyone can see justice done, it may be this gutsy young attorney. She'll risk everything for her client...including her life. In The Vendetta Defense, Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author of Moment of Truth and Mistaken Identity, tells a wonderfully rich story of past sins, love and justice. Lawyer Judy Carrier takes the case of an elderly pigeon racer, Tony Lucia, who has been arrested for the murder of his lifelong enemy Angelo Coluzzi. "Pigeon Tony," as he's known, confesses to Judy that he killed Coluzzi because of a vendetta begun more than fifty years ago. Her client's guilt, however, is only the beginning of Judy's problems. The Coluzzi family wants revenge, and they are determined to finish off Pigeon Tony and Judybefore the case can go to trial.… (més)

After re-re-reading "The Vendetta Defense," I can say, as is usual with Lisa Scottoline's books, this is great, full of memorable and usually likeable characters and plenty of plot.
Alas, she makes one gross error, double alas, one made by too, too many writers, including those propagandists and ignorami at "Law and Order": "Jury nullification" is NOT the correct term to apply to a jury's voting "not guilty" because they don't like the prosecutors and/or the prosecution case, and do like the defendant.
"News" people and, as I said, too many writers constantly mis-use the term "jury nullification," sometimes because of abysmal ignorance, and sometimes because of willful and intentional distortion.
"Jury nullification" is voting because the jury members oppose a law.
For example, a defendant accused of the heinous crime of selling, or even just growing, marijuana might be voted "not guilty" because the jurors recognize the immorality and/or stupidity of The Insane War on Some Drugs.
Jury Nullification is, in truth, part of the American tradition, part of our heritage.
It goes back to the John Peter Zenger trial.
And even further back to very courageous jurors in England defying the persecutorial government and even risking their own lives to try to prevent a legal wrong.
Fully Informed Jury Association is available to give us the facts. It's headquartered in Montana, but accessible via the Internet. Too bad that so many people, even lawyers and judges, don't know the truth, the history, and even the law: There are states, though not very many, that require judges to inform jurors that they, those jurors, are judges not only of the facts of a case, but of the law.
THAT, gentle reader, is "Jury Nullification."
If you ever get conscripted for a jury, don't let a judge or prosecutor tell you any different. That judge or prosecutor might not be lying: He might actually believe his nonsense. But he is still wrong. ( )

I have to give it credit for being a very interesting story but parts of it were just boring and unrealistic and I sometimes found myself getting lost in the sheer number of characters. The thing that I disliked the most was that it went quickly from being a mystery to being mainly a romance. I had to give it a 3 star rating because it was well written and I generally like this author...and...you guessed it... it fit a challenge very well. ( )

A rather easy read. Pigeon Tony is arrested for killing a lifetime enemy, and Judy Carrier must defend him, and try to save his life in the process. Was Tony getting revenge on his enemy for wrongs against him? ( )

My first Lisa Scottoline book and I am hooked!

I have always enjoyed legal thrillers and strong women characters. What a thrill to have both! And toss in humor, charm, warmth and characters that complement each other and you've a wonderful read. I love the all female law firm and can't wait to read all books by this author. ( )

Just re-read this book for a book discussion and loved it all over again. Funny, great characters, a little pre-war Italy history, lots of Italian culture, and some courtroom drama to finish it all off. ( )
