Produktbeschreibungen

From Kirkus Reviews

Third, and weakest, in a legal procedural whodunit series featuring Lake Tahoe attorney Nina Reilly from the O'Shaughnessy sisters writing team. Taking up a few days after Invasion of Privacy (1996) ended, Reilly accompanies rugged but haunted prosecutor Collier Hallowell for what the two hope will be a romantic trek to the top of Mount Tallac, only to fall in with the dysfunctional de Beers family, whose presence on the mountain seems anything but recreational. A storm brews, and Hallowell and Reilly witness nasty Raymond de Beers, the president of a well-known but shoddy Lake Tahoe construction company, blown off the peak into their path and killed, seemingly by a bolt of lightning. After the unsatisfying inquest, which raises more questions than answers, Reilly recommends that Hallowell, who suspects foul play, hire her former lover p.i. Paul Von Wagoner to find whatever clues about the killing the Tahoe police could not. Meanwhile, Reilly is approached by domineering family patriarch Quentin de Beers, who also thinks that Raymond was somehow murdered. Reilly begins to believe that Raymond's death may be linked to the hit-and-run murder of a local woman. But the O'Shaughnessy team forces that intersection very awkwardly, compelling their disbelieving characters to lecture each other on Jungian synchronicities, the relationship between reality and art, and cosmic parallels to Greek myths. Before the mystery can be solved, others will die, and Reilly and the increasingly obsessed Hallowell will find themselves on opposite sides. The novel falls apart, like one of the badly constructed de Beers houses, in a cliff-hanging climax in which all the apparent bad guys are revealed to be good, and a method is offered that, in theory, would make lightning a murder weapon capable of striking the same place more than once. Forced, unconvincing characters and vastly overheated plotting, with some sharp, if predictable, courtroom scenes and an impressive knowledge of forensic pathology. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.

From Library Journal

The writing sisters Pam and Mary O'Shaughnessy (Invasion of Privacy, LJ 8/96) have partnered again for a third entry in their Nina Reilly series of legal thrillers. This time Nina's a witness to the death by lightning of a construction mogul in the Tahoe Mountains. When his father returns from a business trip, he wants Nina to have the body exhumed and autopsied for signs of murder, setting off a family furor. Suddenly, the grave is empty, the bodies of both father and son turn up in a smoldering mountain cabin, and the grandson is charged with murder. Nina is then asked to clear the grandson amid an increasingly complex series of interrelationships involving the D.A., his dead wife, a not-so-grieving widow, and, of course, the gardener. Though the evolving coincidences seem a bit contrived, this is nonetheless a compelling story with some great courtroom drama and a likable heroine. Readers will definitely look forward to more titles in the series. Recommended.?Susan Gene Clifford, Aerospace Corp., El Segundo, Cal.

I live here at the So. shore of Lake Tahoe. I have lived here for 25 years. "Obstruction of Justice" was the first book that I read. When I read that there was a murder at the north end of the Raley's parking lot, where the trees are, I thought, that can't be true. My husband has worked at that store for 22 years and there are no trees at the north end of the parking lot. I had to drive down there at 12:30A.M. to check it out! There are trees. So many of the details are absolutely right on! Very exciting.

Deputy District Attorney Collier Hathowell takes Tahoe lawyer Nina
Reilly mountain climbing, expecting to have an enjoyable outing with her.
Instead Nina inadvertently becomes involved in a situation that turns her
life into danger and heartache. A sudden storm appears on the summit of
Mount Tallic, forcing the pair to seek shelter. Fortunately, they find a
place to protect them from the nasty elements. The other climbers are no
quite as lucky as one of them is hit by lightening and plunges to his
death.
...... The victim's death causes Collier to flash back to three years ago when
his own spouse was murdered by an unknown hit and run driver. Nina realizes
that her love interest needs time to close that period of his life before
he can commit to someone else. She recommends that he hire her former
suitor, private detective Paul Von Wagner, to investigate. Paul agrees to
handle the case, but soon finds himself also working for Nina, whose client
(the son of the person who died on the summit) has been accused of killing
his grandfather. Nina receives no cooperation from her client or able to
obtain information from his dysfunctional family. Nina soon finds herself
being accused of OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE as she struggles to provide her
client with the best defense possible even if no one else (including her
client) seem interested.
....... There is double the pleasure and double the fun with this mystery
within a mystery novel written by one of the rising stars in the legal
procedural sub-genre, Perri O'Shaugnessy.

I'm a big fan of legal thrillers, and currently attending law school. John Grisham is one of my favorite authors, but since I've exhausted all his written material, I thought I should try something else. I picked this one up from my mother-in-law, who mentioned she got through it in a couple of days, and it was a quick read. I was extremely disappointed. The plot was weak, and the writing style almost unbearable! I found myself editing the book constantly, and that took away from my enjoyment of the novel. I also got through it in a couple of days, hoping ferverently it would get better. It didn't. Too bad there is no rating lower than 1 star. That's what this book really deserves.

The third book in the Nina Reilly series was one I had high hopes for. The previous two novels featuring Nina were great court-room dramas with very well developed storylines/plots and characters.
All this was missing in the third novel. The courtroom was entered only at a very late stage in the book and only for a brief period. The plot was quite flat and uninteresting and the development of the characters was not what we are used to from this writer team. Nina, Paul and Collier were still there old self ( in a way..) but the rest was not the sort of people I could feel any empathy with. I hope the next one will be better.

This probably the least enjoyable of the Nine Reilly series because there are so many coincidences. Nina & Paul are working on two totally separate cases in two totally different towns, and all of a sudden, the cases are magically tied together with the same people being involved in both situations. I could not suspend my disbelief that much! Also they never clear up how one of the characters (Kim) happened to be at the scene of a certain accident while she just happens to be having an affair with one of the other characters indirectly involved with that same accident. A disappointing book.

I am thrilled to discover Nina! I have been disapointed with my favorite characters from Patricia Cornwell and Sue Grafton lately. I'm excited to discover a new series to get to know. The ending of this book is a little forced and the parallel murders stretches credibility. However, the fun character development and location make up for the deficiencies. Looking forward to reading the earlier books which are supposedly even stronger.

Always leery about purchasing an unfamiliar author's books, I decided to take the plunge with "Obstruction of Justice". As one implausible coincidence occured after the other, I found the story becoming more and more unbelievable. Understanding that this is one of the author's weaker books, cared for it so little that I doubt I'll be looking up her earlier work anytime soon.
