Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

From familiar elements - four mysteriously missing young women; a filmmaker everyone loves to hate; a woman defense attorney with several suitors; the attorney's courageous but unhappy young son - sisters Pamela and Mary O'Shaughnessy have fashioned a thickly plotted and pleasantly baffling second legal thriller. Tahoe-area attorney Nina Reilly was shot at the end of Motion to Suppress (1995). As the increasingly alarming facts of her latest case pile up, she is haunted by memories of that wounding. No less haunting are certain details of her personal past, which Nina's new client, Terry London, an energetically spiteful documentary filmmaker, seems to know as much about as Nina does. Out of that past and into Tahoe comes Kurt Scott, the father of Nina's son, Bob. Almost immediately, Terry is murdered, Kurt is accused of the crime and Nina must assemble his murder defense. To complicate the mystery, Terry had just finished a film about the 12-year-old disappearance of a local teenager who may have been only one in a series of young women killed by the same hand. Did Terry know and abet the killer? As Nina ponders that question, a devastating mid-story revelation plunges her into a difficult ethical dilemma. Fans of the genre will luxuriate in this deft, multileveled tale of legal and criminal treachery, whose pleasures include elegant courtroom sleight-of-hand and the eerily wintry backdrop of Lake Tahoe. And the surprises don't end with the identity of the killer: Nina's last-page choice of a love partner will raise a few eyebrows as well.

From Library Journal

Tahoe attorney Nina Reilly intended to stop practicing criminal law after being shot during her court case in Motion to Suppress, (LJ 5/15/95). So how does Nina become involved in a murder case after agreeing to represent filmmaker Terry London in a simple invasion of privacy suit? Shortly thereafter, Nina's former lover and the father of her son, Kurt Scott, is accused of killing Terry, his vindictive and malicious ex-wife. Nina, still healing emotionally from the shooting and struggling to hide the identity of her son's father, decides to defend Kurt while trying to protect her brother, who was at the crime scene; her son; and their privacy. The two sisters who pen this series under the O'Shaugnessy name have the skill and creativity of five. Their characters are involving, and the pace of events propels the reader through this excellent legal thriller. For most popular collections?V. Louise Saylor, Eastern Washington Univ. Lib., Cheney

I love good thrillers, and am willing to put up with a few flaws for the sake of a good story. But I had to stop reading this one. There were just too many situations where the characters behaved in completely implausible ways. For example: when the main character Nina's 11-year-old son goes missing, her brother tries to get her to go out to dinner. I cannot imagine that idea even crossing the mind of any actual human I have ever met. Later, while the son is still missing, Nina is attacked and her belongings destroyed by her erstwhile client. In a piece of truly extraordinary dialogue, our heroine declines to inform the police who did it and asks the client whether she did it "because of the case." (A case which Nina had just won for the client.) The client proceeds to verbally attack Nina, who backs down. What?? I am inclined to think the heroine should have been named Ninny--no one that spineless could have made it past the first two weeks of law school, or at least not the one I attended. My capacity for suspending disbelief was pushed far past the breaking point with this silly book.

Having recently relocated to Lake Tahoe, lawyer Nina Reilly vowed never to work another murder trial after her first one ended in a nearly fatal shoot-out. But if you are a regular reader of the legal mystery/thriller genre you know those kinds of resolutions fall to the wayside quickly. Nevertheless, "Invasion of Privacy" starts off innocently enough as Nina returns to the courtroom -- defending a client's First Amendment right to release a documentary film about a young women who disappeared from the Tahoe shores many years ago. With the case looking to be in the bag, Nina's eccentric client suddenly turns downright nasty. What follows is a roller-coaster ride that uncovers many long-kept Tahoe family secrets and even some involving Nina herself.
As in their debut Nina Reilly novel "Motion To Suppress," the O'Shaughnessy sisters excel in unfurling a highly-readable, if nearly unpredictable (and at times equally unrealistic) courtroom-based mystery. However, while we learn more about the Nina's past in this novel, I still have some issues with her development as a character in this series. I believe her as a hard-nosed and competent lawyer who can not seem to stay out of danger but find the transition to caring mother and an object of desire (to no less than three men in "Invasion"!) far less convincing.
"Invasion" is not a perfect novel by any stretch of the imagination, but nevertheless it is an entertaining pool-side/wrapped-up-in-a-blanket/rainy day read.

Invasion of Privacy continues with Nina Reilly, the lawyer who we first meet in Motion to Suppress, the first novel by Perri O'Shaughnessy. Nina is defending Terry London, a filmmaker who is being sued over a film she made about a young girl who has been missing for 12 years. Terry is a quite diffucult lady to get along with and Nina decides to persuade her to find another lawyer. Before this change happens, Terry turns up dead, shot to death in her own house. The man seen coming from Terry's house is someone very close to Nina's past, that she has not seen in years. Of course he is being held for the murder, which he says he did not do, and Nina decides to defend him, not really knowing for sure if she can believe him or not. The damaging evidence is a videotape Terry tapes as she is dying. Nina has to work hard to find the evidence to set her client free, which in the process she runs across something that could destroy her family forever. Invasion of Privacy is another hit by Perri O'Shaughnessy, which is a hard to put down page turner that had me up till the wee hours.

I give this book a 2 rather than a 1 simply because I had to read it to the end to see whodunit. (But then, I never figure out whodunit.) In this pathetic sequel to "Motion to Suppress," whose weaknesses I forgave because it was a good first effort, I frequently had to slap myself on the forehead as I suffered through Perri O'Shaughnessy's ludicrous plot twists. (I could only wonder, after the flap that followed their first book in the Reilly series, "Motion to Suppress," if the Ladies--that is, the O'Shaughnessy sisters--have beome a bit drunk on success. Because I, for one, feel a bit woozy after reading this overplotted, beyond-suspension-of-disbelief novel.) The heroine, Reilly, has the brains and common sense of Aunt Pittypat of "Gone With the Wind." Even on my worst days I can avoid trouble better--and God knows I don't want my lawyer to be this dim! The supposedly earthshaking "revelations" in the book can be seen a mile away. And many of them aren't earthshaking at all. Ladies, don't let your agent, your publisher, and your banker shanghai you into writing another sequel so fast--this is sad! Get a grip!

This makes the second novel involving this sort of
burnt to a crisp female attorney. She's had some
hard knocks lately, has decided to stay away from
homicide defenses, when this nice, safe invasion
of privacy suit lands in her lap. Suffice to say
that it soon turns into a situation bigger than
Nina ever expected to handle. Suddenly the woman she is
defending turns into a harridan,
knows a lot about her, is messing into her private life,
stalking her son, and damaging her already injured
reputation. Her faithful
sidekick investigative detective uncovers some information
that Nina would rather nobody know. All of a sudden she's
defending a murderer, much to her chagrin, one that is
as close to her as her own son. Great read. What a tangle
of interwoven lives in this novel. Might stretch credibility
a little, but then again, what escapist fiction doesn't??
