Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The suspect confessed. Now her only hope is a lawyer who believes she lied.

Misty Patterson only remembered the fight, the polar bear statue she used as a bludgeon, a trail of blood, and the comatose sleep that followed. When she awoke, her husband and the statue were missing. Only the blood was left. She had come to attorney Nina Reilly's office seeking a divorce. But when Anthony Patterson was found on the bottom of the frigid lake, Misty needed a miracle.

Barely a week before, Nina Reilly had been a happily married San Francisco lawyer. Suddenly she's a single parent, opening a shoestring practice in Lake Tahoe. And now Nina finds herself embroiled in a case that's going to change everything she believes about the law.  It's going to rock everything Misty Patterson believes about herself. And it's going to give both women a look at the damning piece of evidence that will challenge their faith in each other. Or give them their one and only chance to win...

From the Hardcover edition.

Cathy from Olympia, Washington, July 8, 2009 (view all comments by Cathy from Olympia, Washington)
The plan was to "just finish the chapter." Hours later, I discover that it is past midnight, the morning of a long work day. Whoops! It's been a loooong time since I read a book that I couldn't put down. Somehow I missed the Nina Reilly series until I saw a glowing review for the newest book "Show No Fear," a series prequel. I read it, loved it, then read this, the first in the Nina Reilly series, "Motion to Suppress." WHOAH! While I definitely enjoyed the prequel, Motion to Suppress blew me away (no pun intended). Highly, highly recommended, though I would suggest reading it when you have a large block of time and no next-day obligations. Just in case you can't put it down either!
