I’m not drawn to murder mysteries with a lawyerly edge to them except when I’m out of “real” murder mysteries to read, but I may have found a whole new series in this author! (Well, the author is actually a duo of sisters, but still…) Light on the courtroom scenes and heavy on solving the murder(s), this book engaged me throughout. Nina Reilly is a prickly character about whom I come to care; I actually believe I will seek out her previous books to see how she came to where she is in this book (and where she goes hereafter). Not too heavy on narrative, the book moves at a nice pace.
