Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Nobody in the exploding field of legal thrillers catches the day-to-day life of a working lawyer better than the O'Shaughnessy sisters--lawyer Pamela and writer Mary, who collaborate under the joint byline of Perri. This is the fifth in their series about lawyer Nina Reilly. O'Shaughnessy expertly balances Reilly's life between the working half and the private half (raising her 16-year-old son as a single mother and finding the time and place for romance). The fact that both parts take place in the heavenly venue of Lake Tahoe only adds to the reading pleasure.

Acts of Malice begins with a jolt: the manager of one of the area's largest ski resorts is charged with the murder of his brother, and hires Nina to defend him. But this will not be an easy case for Nina since the prosecutor, Collier Hallowell, is the man who shook up her life so violently by walking out on her a year before. Also, Nina and her immediate circle find themselves in danger from the very client that they are defending.

Other examples of the O'Shaughnessy expertise include Breach of Promise and Motion to Suppress. --Dick Adler

Von Ein Kunde am 30. April 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Attorney Nina Reilly operates a highly regarded practice in Lake Tahoe even as she raises her sixteen-year old son by herself. Since her divorce, she rejects all men until Assistant District Attorney Collier Hallawell reenters her life. He wants her back though he rejected her just last year. Nina refuses to allow him back in her life because she fears the pain when he leaves again as she expects of him.
Adding to her skittishness is that the two lawyers are on opposite sides of a case. Though her client Jim Strong leaves Nina uneasy, she defends him from the state's accusation that he killed his brother. As Nina and Collier work closely together, he manages to penetrate her personal defenses. At the same time, evidence begins to prove that Jim is not the innocent he claims to be. If this turns out to be true, Nina and all those she cherishes are in considerable danger.
The fifth Nina Reilly novel is the best of this wonderful series as a different side of the lead character's personality surfaces. This makes Nina seem more vulnerable and, in turn, human. The legal procedural story line comes across as realistic as the prosecution and defense thrusts and parries each other in the courtroom. Observing the personality of the defendant change over the course of the novel will leave chills up and down the spine of the audience. ACTS OF MALICE is Perri O'Shaugnessy at her best, which is at a higher level than most authors will ever achieve.

I have read all five Nina Reilly books and agree that this is the best so far. The authors very deftly bring Nina's life outside her law practice into the story allowing readers to learn more about her and the people around her without loosing any of the previous books legal edginess. As Nina spends more time with her client and those people who know him best, the situation becomes more than an ethical dilemma - it is a matter of life and death for her and her loved ones.
My only complaint is this: I consider myself well read and with a fairly sophisticated vocabulary, however, I found myself looking up at least ten words in my thesaurus. I welcome this kind of challenge when I am reading scholarly books, but find it annoying when I'm just reading for pleasure. Granted, the meaning of all of these words was apparent in the context of the sentence, it just seems to be an unnecessary hindrance that doesn't belong in pop fiction.
OK, off my soapbox. I am anxious for some of my reading friends to perhaps help fill in some big blanks in the story for me. I won't mention them here for fear of "spoiling" the read for someone else, but there are some unanswered questions.

This book is my introduction to "O'Shaugnessy" and it's a winner. I read a lot of mysteries - some of which I never finish - why bother. This one held my attention all the way through. The authors' 'sense of place' is remarkable. The reader 'sees' the Lake Tahoe locale. It's well written and plotted though the reader also sees what's coming. In this sense, it's more a tale of suspense than mystery. Despite this, the finale was particularly gripping.
As a fan of Elizabeth George, Ruth Rendell, James Lee Burke on the heavy side and Sue Grafton, Robert Parker, James Crais on the more flip side, I found the romantic involvement of the characters perhaps too prominent but as it turned out - it was quite integral to the plot. (We mystery readers tend to be picky-picky about the genre).
I would recommend this book - this 'writer', (two writers, actually - sisters who are probably well attuned to each other) to other mystery fans. I haven't yet read another of this series but I've already picked up a couple. Stay tuned.

Nina Reilly's got her hands full this time with impossibly handsome client, Jim Strong, an expert skier accused of stomping his brother to death. Vacillating between relief when the facts seem to exonerate Jim and terror when the evidence seems to call into question his version of the events, Nina faces her toughest challenge yet - defending a man she's not sure is innocent. To complicate matters, Nina falls in love with Collier Hallowell, a man whose professional survival may well depend upon his winning the very case Nina can't emotionally afford to lose.
A page-turner from start to finish, ACTS OF MALICE proves Perri O'Shaughnessy to be a master of intrigue and suspense and one of the best of America's contemporary mystery writers. This fifth book in the Nina Reilly series gives the readers what they've come to expect from its talented writer: a rip-roaring good read.

I admit: this is a fast reading novel, exciting and full of suspense. And I enjoyed reading it. But there is a major flaw: its psychology. It is not really conceivable that the lawyer of the alleged murderer falls in love with her adversary, the lawyer who represents the prosecution. In the courtroom they fight against each other using more or less unfair methods and tricks. Then they go to bed and do not speak a single word about the case. The characters of the alleged killer's wife and his father - among others - are not credible in their action and motivation either.
But if you do not mind this, you can read a novel with a fine plot and in addition a well worked out setting that shows more realism than the characters.
