If you like legal thrillers, this is one to enjoy. As the book blurb says, "this will keep you turning the pages into the night." An attorney and single mother, Nina Reilly sees other people's ups and downs as clearly as she sees her own. But she's never seen anything like the fierce terrified young woman who comes to her in the middle of the night trailing a computer geek who was a stranger a few hours before. Their problem; they just won seven million dollars at the slot machines. Within hours, her client's good fortune has plunged Nina into a battle that will be waged in court and on the streets. The young woman's past - and the mysterious death of her husband in Hawaii - has triggered a powerful man's crusad of revenge. But a moment of chance and enough money to save two troubled lives has done something worse; it's brought a killer into their midst.

good story line different
reviewed Writ of Execution (Nina Reilly, Bk 7) on
Writ of Execution by Perri O'Shaughnessy is a cross between a Grisham legal thriller and an Evanovich Stephanie Plum novel. Nina Reilly, attorney, gets naked on page 13, but due to a fast moving plot doesn't get any for the rest of the book (427 pages worth). The book revolves around a 7 million dollar jackpot that's won by a girl on the run. A string of murders follow and it's a race to solve the murders and get the girl her jackpot.

Literary Quality: 7/10

From Publishers Weekly
A wild, just-barely-believable scenario jump-starts this serviceably written, well-paced and engaging courtroom thriller, seventh in a series by the bestselling duo (sisters Pamela and Mary O'Shaughnessy) who write under the pen name Perri. On an ordinary night at a Lake Tahoe casino, a young ex-Marine and Native American widow named Jessie Potter punches a button on a slot machine and winds up hitting the jackpot to the tune of $7 million. Rather than jumping for joy, she flees the casino, dragging computer nerd Kenny Leung, the man at the slot machine next to hers, along with her. Jessie, it is revealed, is being stalked and can't sign for her check, for fear of publicity. Desperate for a solution, she convinces Kenny to marry her so she can sign as Mrs. Leung, and to protect her interests, she hires lawyer Nina Reilly, back once more after her adventures in Move to Strike. The story takes off when Jessie's former father-in-law enters the picture with a wrongful death suit, claiming that Jessie killed his son, and a writ of execution that will seize all of Jessie's assets, including the $7 million. Meanwhile, key witnesses to Jessie's win keep turning up dead, and Nina and her arch rival, Jeff Riesner, face off in court. Although development of the interpersonal relationships is rushed, making them never quite as believable as they should be, and the language and dialogue are rendered predictably, the suspenseful and well-executed courtroom scenes provide ample payoff. In particular, the book's final third captivates with its scenes of wily courtroom negotiation. Readers will relish the myriad plot details and the procedural drama, and enjoy the cast of offbeat characters. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

This book is brand new--I truthfully have never read it. I just have to clean out the stacks of paperbacks I have!

Lake Tahoe attorney Nina Reilly is nervous as she sees the fierce, terrified young woman who comes to her in the middle of the night with a story about winning 7 million dollars in the lottery.

Suddenly there is nothing but trouble!
