Lake Tahoe attorney Nina Reilly takes on cases that other lawyers reject, yet wins most of them. She hopes her current streak continues with client Jessie Potter, the winner of a seven million-dollar slot machine pay out.
Jessica wants no publicity because she fears her father-in-law will find her, a person who made her life miserable. He had and still has the power to destroy her. He went after Jesse with a vengeance because he blames her for the death of his son. Due to a civil case filed in Hawaii, Jessie is expected to hand over her winnings to him, but Nina believes her client is innocent of all charges and plans to prove it.
The seventh Nina Reilly tale is the strongest novel in a powerhouse series because the attorney is at the top of her game. Readers will enjoy observing the personal life of Nina Reilly as her relationship with Paul takes a step forward only to take another step backward. A significant event surprises everyone by changing the status quo. WRIT OF EXECUTION is a well-written complex legal procedural that fully entertains the audience.
