Description


Everybody around lawyer Mary DiNunzio has decided she isn't allowed to be a Young Widow anymore. They're all trying to fix her up -- her South Philly parents, her best friend, even the office security guard.

All Mary wants to do is immerse herself in a case everybody else calls "The History Channel," a pro bono representation of the Brandolini estate: At the outbreak of World War II, Amadeo Brandolini was arrested by the FBI as part of a mass internment of Italian-Americans and was sent to a camp in Montana, where he eventually committed suicide. Now, more than sixty years later, his son's estate hires Mary to sue for reparations.

Mary vows to vindicate Amadeo even though it won't be easy. Suddenly this quiet, squeaky-clean good girl is risking life and limb to finger a killer and lay a beloved ghost to rest.
