Nina Reilly novels have dazzled both readers and critics with their crackling blend of raw legal suspense and taut human drama.
April in the Sierra, the ski season is almost over and it is the perfect weather for gamblers. Nina Reilly, the sole legal practitioner at Lake Tahoe and developing a reputation as an erratically brilliant lawyer, hears their stories all day long: stories about their wins, their divorces, the bankruptcies, the purse-snatchings, the week-long binges and the overdoses. It is not a pretty picture.
Then one gambler gets murdered, and suspicion falls on the winner of the biggest jackpot in Tahoe's history, Nina's new client - and a girl who won't tell anyone her name.
