Nina Reilly sits as second chair on a very strange case in Monterey county to be near her boyfriend, P.I. Paul van Wagoner. As evidence mounts against her client, Nina becomes more engrossed in the case. Although she wears Paul's ring, her mind is more on her son and her work.

Interesting story. Forensics play most important part in thr trial.

Four stars. Good book.

An already difficult case turns nasty when a young woman's body is found in the grave and Stefan's DNA is found in her apartment. It looks like Stefan may be guilty of a far more heinous crime: murder. As evidence against her client mounts, Nina consults a brilliant forensic pathologist and soon an extraordinary story emerges, harking back to Tsarist Russia and the tragic Romanov court.

Nina Reilly, a criminal lawyer, is asked to assist an aging partner from a law firm that she clerked for when she was in law school. The client appears to be an unlucky small-time offender who agreed to rob a grave for $1,000, stealing the bones of a long-buried Russian emigre. But the body of a young woman is also found in the grave and Nina's client's DNA is found in her apartment, so it appears that he may be guilty of a much more heinous crime, murder.

Nina Reilly takes on the most dangerous and difficult case of her career in New York Times bestselling author Perri OShaughnessys latest thriller. An ingenious blend of forensic science, history, and gripping suspense, Unlucky in Law pits the tough but compassionate attorney against the most unbeatable adversary of all: the law.

Nina has just received a last-minute call from her old boss and mentor in Monterey County, California, where she is enjoying the breathtaking scenery and spending time with her boyfriend, P.I. Paul van Wagoner. Klaus Pohlmann is in desperate straits and begs Nina to take over a seemingly unwinnable case: A luckless two-time felon named Stefan Wyatt has robbed a grave and made off with the long-buried bones of a Russian émigré. When he is caught and arrested, further devastating evidence found in the grave suggests that Stefan is guilty of a far more deadly crime.

A young woman, a classmate of Stefans, has been killed, and he is accused of her murder. Now, as a result of Californias Third Strike law, Wyatt is looking at twenty-five years to life whether hes convicted of grand theft or murder. Either way, hes in big trouble.
With her clients blood DNA found in the dead womans apartment, Nina faces an uphill battle. Suspecting that her hapless client has been set up, Nina brings in a brilliant forensic pathologist who comes up with a startling theory about the case that could rewrite a crucial page of European history. As the evidence mounts against Ninas client, Paul launches his own investigation into the shadowy past of the two-decades-old skeleton. But long-held secrets nearly get him killed and reveal a more insidious evil at workand an extraordinary story dating back to tsarist Russia and the Romanov court. As Wyatt edges closer to the unluckiest verdict of his young life, Nina makes an astounding discovery that just might save her clientor expose a killer who could bury them all.
