From Booklist

The popular sister duo behind the O'Shaughnessy pseudonym returns with another tale about the legal battles Nina Reilly fights for her odd assortment of clients. Away from her comfortable Lake Tahoe home and practice, Nina finds herself in California wine country, helping an old friend with a case. Nina's boyfriend, Paul von Wagoner, is just as pleased as he can be, for Monterey is where he hopes Nina will settle down with him as his wife. Nina has no time for such romantic notions, however, as her attempt to defend one of the unluckiest young men she has ever met is fraught with problems. Her client was caught grave digging--something he readily admits to doing for some quick cash--but he uncovered a second body that had been dumped in the grave, and now he stands accused of murdering that interloper. Fake bomb scares, an unhelpful Russian family, and untrusting colleagues all serve to complicate matters for Nina but make this courtroom drama entertaining. The key strength of this series is the pleasurable mix of a single mother's struggle to find love and happiness with her talents at preparing and trying cases. O'Shaughnessy fans will be pleased with this addition. Mary Frances Wilkens

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good mystery 12. Mai 2005
Von B. McEwan - Veröffentlicht auf
I'm a sucker for stories that straddle two different historical eras, so this murder mystery that links present events to the murder of the last Russian czar and his family in 1918 was a natural for me. Unlike so many novels of this sort, the plot is not obvious, yet it is also an easy read for an airplane trip or a commute to work on the train.

The characters are well drawn. Nina Reilly, the attorney hero, is likable and the other primary characters have enough complexity to be believeable. The reader knows right away who the good guys are, but the murderer is not immediately identified.

Overall, this is a very good novel that will hold the attention of an intelligent reader without offering too much challenge to be easily entertaining. If you enjoy page turners and don't want to drag a big, hardcover book around town, this book is for you.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Stick With It! 2. Oktober 2004
Von Wendy Kaplan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Although "Unlucky in Law" takes a very long time to get to the point, and although I almost gave up several times, I'm so glad I didn't. Because once the tedious and long beginning is done with, the story is one of the best in the Nina Reilly series.

Nina has now moved down to be with Paul, and as always, she is conflicted about the relationship. What else is new? But this time, we see some things from Paul's perspective, and that is both interesting and unique to the series...and adds some real interest to their dynamic.

While Nina is, as always, grappling with her personal feelings, she gets pulled into a case that first appears to be a simple murder--and winds up embroiled in Russian history, all the way back to the last Czar! Nina's client, a hapless young man named Stefan, is accused of the brutal murder of a young woman of Russian descent whom he swears he never met. But his blood was found at the scene of the crime. And the DNA is conclusive.

Hopeless? Nina doesn't think so--something doesn't rub her right, and she's going to find out what. Even if it means destroying her personal life.

Worth the read, worth the series. Give it a try.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Intrigue and history-a satisfying mixture 4. November 2004
Von Cardinal47 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Nina Reilly has left Lake Tahoe to spend some time with her longtime lover and PI, Paul van Wagoner in Monterey, partly to sort out their future. She gets a call from an old mentor,Klaus Pohlman, who asks for her help on what appears to be a straightforward murder case. Nina agrees to help with the case and gets taken on a puzzling trip down "history" road. Her client, Stefan Wyatt, a neer-do-well young man, already has two convictions and,if convicted again, is headed for life in prison. He is accused of murdering a young woman,Christina Zhukovsky, and burying her body in her father's grave but removing the father's bones. According to DNA tests blood on glass shards found in Christina's home is Stefan's.

But things are not what they seem. Paul and Nina discover that Christina's father, Constantin Zhukovsky, has links to the Romanov dynasty which was overthrown by the Bolsheviks in 1918. We are led down meandering paths until the identity of the murderer is revealed in the last few pages. This is one of the best-plotted novels in the Nina Reilly series.

1.0 von 5 Sternen An Unlucky book 12. September 2004
Von SDRTX - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Nina O'Reilly is spending some personal time with her boyfriend, Paul van Wagoner in Monterey County. He old boss and mentor, Klaus Pohlmann calls on Nina to be second chair in a tricky case. Stefan Wyatt took a job digging up the bones of an old Russian émigré. As he was digging he came upon the body of a young woman. Stefan is now accused of her murder. Not only was Stefan at the scene of the crime, but his blood was found in her apartment. Nina's role in the case becomes bigger and more involved when Klaus is seemingly unprepared to handle the complex and at times bizarre case.

This book jumped right in to the courtroom with barely any set up of the case. We learn a lot of the facts from a courtroom perspective. Overall, it made the story seem disjointed and not suspenseful. As characters were introduced, it was confusing because we really did not know what was going on. I muddled through the book, but as I was reading along, I really felt I was wasting precious time. Don't waste yours.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not as good as her earlier works 2. August 2004
Von A. Steward - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have been a fan of this series from the beginning. "Unlucky in Law" seems to be a stretch to find an unusual plot but rehashing the mystery of the Russian dynasty didn't work for me. The twist of the DNA found at the crime scene was used on CSI earlier this year so that wasn't a surprise either.

Nina is busy with the case and and the same time trying to decide where her life is headed and whether or not it includes Paul. Her unwillingness to commit to him over the duration of most of this series has told us all along where their relationship was headed. Of course it is easier for her to dump him when Paul strays.

It's not a totally terrible addition to the series but it is certainly not the best. I look forward to the next entry and hope that Nina back in Tahoe without Paul will bring some excitement back into what has been, for the most part, a good series.
