Having never read a book from the Nina Reilly series before I was a bit apprehensive when I picked up this 12th book. But the writing team of OShaughnessy made it easy for me, this is really a prequel to the whole series. You meet Nina as a young 20-something mom of 4 year old Bob who is working as a paralegal by day and attending law school at night. But she is no superhero, she is just a woman trying to do what is best for her family.

When Ninas mother Ginny is disfigured by a rather shady acupuncturist Nina knows that someone should pay, and working in a law firm, she knows just who to call. But then things get even more complicated when ex-lover Richard Filsen appears and claims to be Bobs father, then Nina finds herself in the middle of a couple murder investigations and she suddenly finds her life in a tailspin.

Nina cant do this alone and with the help of some very interesting cohorts she is determined to do right by her son, and most importantly her mother; who has always been there for her and her brother. Who put her own pain and struggle on the back burner to give her children the best that she could; and in Ginnys last steps of independence - to leave them all with something- may have cost Nina more then she ever realized.

I really enjoyed this book and now look forward to going back to the beginning of this series to see where the lives of these characters lead. Nina is a solidly drawn character that I hope will entertain me for years to come.

I have read all the Nina Reilly series so I was really looking forward to this prequl. It did satisfy some of the curiousity about Nina's background, but I also think that some of the things that happened in this book would have had a bigger impact on Nina's life in the other books which supposedly took place later. Still, I would recommend this to anyone who has read the other books in the series.
