It was a little slow in the beginning for me while it set up the characters, but it quickly took off and I found myself having a hard time putting it down. Kept me guessing to the very end and it still blew me away when I got the answer to the mystery. I would highly recommend this to anyone and am looking forward to others by O'Shaughnessy.
This is the first of the Nina Reilly books, set in Lake Tahoe, written by the Perri O'Shaughnessy sister team. Reilly, who locates in Tahoe with her young son after the breakup of her marriage, opens a struggling law practice and soon has her first important client, an abused young woman who may or may not have murdered her husband - but just can't quite remember.
Nine Reilly moves to Tahoe after a separation from her husband. She decides to open a law office and her first case is a murder trial. Everyone says she is handling the case badly and getting her client convicted. Good story.
An excellent past-paced legal thriller. Courtroom buffs will love this book!
