Description
Two people have died in macabre accidents, one struck by lightning on Tahoe's  highest mountain and one mowed down by a hit-and-run driver. In the middle of  a controversial procedure to exhume one of the bodies, powerful businessman Quentin de Beers is killed. Charged with the murder, Quentin's angry grandson  Jason won't talk, even to Nina, his defense attorney. To save her client,  Nina must expose the truth about his troubled family and untangle the hidden  connections that link all three deaths. And in order to prevent a terrible  injustice, Nina makes a harrowing decision to "obstruct justice" by concealing  crucial evidence in the trial. In the page-turning tradition ofMotion to Suppressand theNew York TimesbestsellerInvasion of Privacy, Perri O'Shaughnessy once again places attorney Nina Reilly in the backstreets of Lake Tahoe where she is up against some colorful and dangerous characters and where the action always goes beyond the courtroom.

Lightning strikes twice.

Two people have died in Lake Tahoe in shocking accidents. In a nearly empty parking lot, a hit-and-run driver kills probation officer Anna Meade Hallowell. High up on a jagged mountain, wife abuser Ray de Beers gets what he deserves: he's struck by lightning. Attorney Nina Reilly, hiking on a rare day off from her one-woman law practice, sees him die. So does her date, Tahoe deputy DA Collier Hallowell. Still shaken from his wife's violent death, Hallowell is hit hard by the accident. It's a bad end to a first date... and the start of a case that will test Nina's ethics and her heart.

Nina is certain de Beers's death is an act of God. But his aging father wants to exhume the body to rule out foul play. De Beers's frantic wife and teenage twins hire Nina to stop the disinterment. What gets unearthed are secrets that raise new questions about Anna Hallowell's death, an indictment against one twin for murder, and a damning piece of evidence that can convict the boy . . . unless Nina obstructs justice by hiding it. No good lawyer will take that kind of risk. But a brilliant lawyer, one with a passion for truth, just might . . . .
