Masterful storytelling ... gripping legal drama ... relentless suspense -- these are the hallmarks of Perri O'Shaughnessy's work.

A chance meeting between clients

Jessie Potter, a doomed young woman with a secret, and Kenny Leung, one of the more confused characters in fiction this year, leads to a casino jackpot and a need for Nina Reilly, in her seventh outing, to try to make sense of it all. Jessie defines the concept of self-sufficiency, and Kenny defines haplessness, despite his brilliance in the computer field, so their collaboration gives the book a light tone. The courtroom adversaries for Reilly are pretty ruthless, and used to a larger setting than what they find in is hard to believe that Nina will prevail. Nina's independence, her relationship with her family (played down a little in this book), the spectacular scenery that is Tahoe, and the depressing world of casino gambling all play a role in this novel. Sandy, Nina's irrepressible secretary, is back, and is as feisty as ever. I'm always fascinated by the concept of sisters who live at a distance (Pamela and Mary O'Shaughnessy) writing a series together. You really can't tell where one begins and the other leaves off, such is the seamlessness of their collaboration. Reilly has been incredibly entertaining in each outing, and although there are some pitfalls in this story, overall, it keeps you enthusiastic, entertained and happy with the outcome.One issue with the series is the unresolved relationship between Reilly and Paul van Wagoner, her terrific investigator. This book continued the dance that is their life together. I'd like for O'Shaughnessy to resolve this one way or the other, and, at the end, it appears that a resolution may be under way for the next book.....but that is what you say each time you finish a Nina Reilly novel.A really entertaining and worthwhile series with a great heroine!

One of the best in the Nina series!!

I have loved this series since the beginning and I found this installment to be one of the best. It gripped me from the first page and I did not want to put it down. The whole gambling idea was pure genius in my opinion and well researched. The authors totally pulled it off and made it fly. The characters, as always, are believable and likeable. The romance between Paul and Nina is well written. Nina is my favorite female protagonist along with Gail Connor from the Barbara Parker series and I enjoyed this book immensely! It is worth hardcover price and I hope the sisters are working on another. I highly recommend it.

A well-written, exciting, legal thriller

As always Perri O'Shaughnessy has given us a well-written installment in the Nina Reilly series. The various plot lines work well. We are kept guessing what the next secret is that Jessie Potter is hiding. With careful reading, we know who the murderer is from early in the book and we are given insight throughout the book into his motivations in each of his murders as he become more obsessed with getting his hands on the money. We learn about how the slots machines work through Kenny's research. We are viewers in the courtroom as Nina uses everything she can to win Jessie's case and even she gets a surprise that will ultimately help her client. Even then, things do not go smoothly, and Nina almost sacrifices her personal relationship with Paul in the process of doing the best she can for her clients.It was a great, fast read and I enjoyed every moment of it!

The best yet in the series

Perri O'Shaughnessy gets better very year. This novel had an original idea, and complex characters. It starts out with a secret, and doesn't let you go until the very end. Nina continues to be a remarkable lead character, and this time you really feel like you got to know her better. I reccommned this to everyone who enjoys a little mystery, and a good courtroom drama. This book will not disappoint. I just hope she writes for many years to come.

most excellent one yet

I have purchased and stocked in my library all of the nina reilly books and this one is by far the best. It holds together, skips the boring and mundane, great dialogue and action. would recommend it over all the rest.
