New York Timesbestselling author Perri O'Shaughnessy has won the acclaim of critics nationwide for her complex, suspenseful legal thrillers that feature one of the most interesting heroines in legal suspense fiction today.  Nina Reilly is a tough, tenderhearted, and unpredictable Lake Tahoe attorney with a one-woman practice, a young son, a genuine sense of humor, and an interesting love life.  Now, inBreach of Promise,Nina takes on the biggest case of her career, a high-profile, high-stakes palimony suit that could make her millions or ruin her financially.  Little does she suspect that it will place her dead center in a bizarre and perplexing murder investigation. At glitzy Lake Tahoe, couples break up every day, but none quite so glamorous or successful as Lindy and Mike Markov.  The scenario starts off in the standard way: Mike's met a younger woman and wants out.  The problem? Mike and Lindy built a $200-million business together and Mike claims he doesn't owe Lindy a dime since they never married. Ready to fight, Lindy hires Nina Reilly to represent her in her palimony suit.  Lacking the resources to handle a case with stakes this high, Nina hires an expert litigator in palimony law, who in turn brings in a jury consultant to ensure that the makeup of the jury is to their advantage.  Now Nina's working with a desperate, unstable client and slick big-city legal professionals on the kind of case--full of passion, raw emotion, and explosive secrets--that could make a fortune for a struggling lawyer.  Or drive someone to commit a shocking murder--for love, money. . . or the right verdict. With all of the storytelling power, authentic legal detail, and insight into the dark recesses of the human heart that have made her the hottest woman writer of legal thrillers, Perri O'Shaughnessy takes readers into the courtroom and far beyond it in her latest masterpiece of legal suspense.
