A Feminist Legal Thriller for both Women & Men! Spectacular!

Let me start by saying that I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this book! It was fast-paced, intelligent, suspenseful and exciting, all the way to the very last page!I first became interested in this novel after reading the cover story of the August 2002 edition of BOOK PAGE about Mary and Pamela O'Shaughnessey ("Sisters in Crime: Career Crossroads turned Siblings into Co-Authors"). These two women are sisters who use the pen name "Perri O'Shaughnessey" in their wonderfully unique brand of legal thriller - one in which the main character is a female attorney. Even though the O'Shaughnessey sisters have written a number of these novels, I decided to get to know Nina Reilly from the beginning, which is MOTION TO SUPRESS.I can't remember the last time I was so drawn to a character. Nina Reilly is intelligent and strong-willed while at the same time being as human as the next person in her faults, doubts and desires - this makes her seem so real that one can't help but want to see her succeed. I can't wait to read the next novel!If you think you've had enough of the typical legal thriller, you'll be pleasantly surprised by this book. Kind of a feminine combination of Grisham, COLUMBO and QUINCY. Have fun with this one - and when you start it, give yourself long stretches of reading time. You won't want to put this one down!

Wow! what a book

Do not start reading Perri O'Shaughnessy unless you want to get addicted. These books about defense lawyer Nine Reilly are excellent! There are familier refences to Lake Tahoe which I really enjoyed. One of the most enjoyable books I have read. Be sure to read the other 3.

A terrific read!

William Bernhardt, William Diehl,William Lashner, John Lescroart, Steve Martini,Barbara Parker,Richard Patterson, Stockly Grif and Robert Tanenbaum who also write legal thrillers now have some more competition. The two authors of this novel have interesting characters, intricate plotting and excellent dialogue. I'm hooked. I am now ordering their other works and looking foward to their next new one.
