This is the second of three excerpts from Lisa Scottoline's new novel, "Damaged," now in stores. Chapter Two 'Good morning, I'm Mary DiNunzio. " Mary closed the door as O'Brien tucked his napkin in the pocket of his worn khakis, which he had on with a boxy navy sports jacket that hung on his long, bony frame. His blue-striped tie lay against his chest, and Mary noticed as she approached him that his oxford shirt had a fraying collar. Edward's hooded eyes were an aged hazel green behind wire-rimmed glasses, with visible bifocal windows.

Mary Scottoline, 90, formerly of Bala Cynwyd, the hilarious, sometimes profane, larger-than-life maternal figure known to readers as "Mother Mary," died Sunday, April 13, of lung cancer at the home of her daughter, Lisa, the author and Inquirer columnist. "We are heartbroken to report that Mother Mary passed away at home this morning, though she was at peace and in the embrace of our love. We choose to remember her as here, making us laugh," Lisa Scottoline said Monday on her Facebook page.

I've been watching Lisa. Lisa sitting in front of her computer. Lisa with one of her three golden retrievers. Lisa on the phone. Lisa with her face buried in the death investigator's handbook, glasses perched on the bridge of her nose, blond hair tousled to one side. This is not your average Webcam. This is the Lisa Cam. It does not tease. If you hang around long enough, you'll get to see Lisa Scottoline, in the flesh, actually. . .write. For thousands of the best-selling author's loyal readers, that is a real turn on. Lisa Scottoline (pronounced Scott-o-lee-nee)

This is the first of three excerpts from Lisa Scottoline's new book, "Accused," which comes out on Tuesday.   Chapter One   CONGRATULATIONS! read the banner, but Mary DiNunzio still couldn't believe she'd made partner, even at her own party. She felt stunned, happy, and hopeful, ready to leave behind her doubts, insecurities, and guilt. Okay, maybe not her guilt. Guilt was like her handbag, occasionally heavy, but something she just felt better carrying around. Same with her insecurities, with which she had grown secure.

Greed plies the hallways of Stalling & Webb, where Mary diNunzio navigates the plush carpets, fighting for a bigger office, respect, her conscience and a partnership in a law office full of obese, obnoxious, fat cats. "It's not a good idea to libel a major law firm," said mystery writer Lisa Scottoline, sitting at the dining room table of her Narberth home. "I'm friends with a lot of people in those firms. Stalling & Webb is fiction. " Honest. Stalling & Webb and diNunzio are among the dozens of realistic characters and settings in Scottoline's first published book, Everywhere That Mary Went, which has sold far more copies than many books by experienced writers.

I don't know where to begin. But here we go. You may recall that Francesca and I were asked to make an appearance on Ladies Night at the Philadelphia Phillies, attending a fun party with Phillies fans before the game, and I was invited to throw out a ceremonial first pitch. So behind the scenes, as soon as I got this news, I felt two things at once. Excitement and panic. The excitement is easy to describe. I've lived in Philadelphia all of my life and I love the Phillies.

You may remember that I wrote recently about wanting to add a little room onto my kitchen so I could look at a blooming garden instead of a stainless steel wall. I went back and forth about whether I was entitled to spend money that was supposed to be for my retirement on a home renovation that I might not even live to see, since I am half-dead already, at 61. Well, thanks to your wonderful, encouraging emails and also my innate selfishness and inability to delay gratification, I am building the garden room, and we just broke ground.

Francesca and I just returned from a book tour, driving to bookstores in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. It was wonderful to meet our readers, and the only downside of the tour was the fault of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. Let me explain. Loyal readers know I'm not the bravest driver in the world, especially when I'm crossing the Bay Bridge in Maryland. In fact, Francesca drove us over the bridge while I was in the passenger seat, driving myself over the deep end. I would like to meet the person who designed the Bay Bridge, which zooms straight up into the clouds, veers left at a seagull, reaches heaven, and then plunges back down again, barely skimming the top of the briny deep.

You know what a cutlet is? Men think it's something you eat for dinner. But women know better. For those of you without estrogen, a cutlet is a piece of fake-cotton padding in a bra. And all of a sudden, cutlets are everywhere, aren't they? I say this because I went online shopping for bathing suits, which taught me many new things about the world of fashion. Before I begin, let me explain why I was shopping online for bathing suits instead of going to a store.

By the time you read this, I will be a year older. But no wiser. Because I almost got killed this morning doing a dumb thing. Or maybe the best thing I ever did. You be the judge. We began on a quiet Saturday morning, and I was going to meet my best friend, Franca, so we could ride our bikes on the trail. Yes, it's that time of year again, when Franca and I go bicycle-riding and try to remain upright. I was driving to meet her, and there was only light traffic because it was early in the morning on a summer weekend, but as I turned onto this main, four-lane road near my house, I happened to notice a flock of mother and baby geese about to step off the curb on the other side of the street and cross the road.

Guess who's coming over this week. The USA. OK, I'm exaggerating. But only a little. Let me explain. About a month or so ago, I found out that Francesca and I were scheduled to be on Good Morning America , which is very big news. We were booked to talk about our funny series that's coming out next month, as well as my thrillers and novels. We were superexcited because the show has a bazillion viewers, and obviously, this would expose our books to a national audience.

Excerpts from Lisa Scottoline's new novel, "Most Wanted," now in stores. Chapter One Christine Nilsson walked to the closed door with anticipation. She knew everyone was waiting for her inside the teachers' lounge, ready to surprise her. She'd guessed what they were up to, leaving their classrooms after the dismissal bell, then her principal summoning her for a "quick meeting," even though there was no such thing at Nutmeg Hill Elementary. It was sweet of them to throw her a good-bye party, especially on the last week of school when everybody was crazy-busy.
