First off, "Perri O'Shaughnessy is a pseudonym for two sisters, one, Pamela O'Shaughnessy's background is trial lawyer and Mary O'shaughnessy was an editor. This is the 4th "Nina Reilly" Atty. book and is set in Tahoe, Calif. Talk about a twist of a mystery! Very hard to put down, the only thing I skipped was much of the jury back and forth conversation and did not effect my understanding of the story. Great ending and makes me want to read the next book in this series.
