Broken hearts. Broken promises. Deadly consequences.
In glitzy Lake Tahoe, couples break up every day. But few are as successful as Lindy and Mike Markov, who built a $200-million business together--before Mike took up with a younger woman. Now he's claiming he doesn't owe Lindy a dime since they never married.
Attorney Nina Reilly, struggling to make a living in her one-woman office and raise a young son alone, agrees to take Lindy's case. Nina knows winning is a long shot, even with a brilliant jury consultant and a palimony expert on her side. It's the kind of case--full of passion and explosive secrets--that could make a fortune for a young lawyer. Or drive someone to commit murder--for love, money . . . or the right verdict.

The second O'Shaughnessy novel I've read, I found it enjoyable and a little more plausible than the first I read, "Move to Strike." I hope that's not an indication previous works exhausted the formula. Most of the characters are well developed, though I think the Markov's would have benefited from a little more in-depth an explanation. I liked that the action in this novel, for the most part, was a little more understated than I expected. It seems to deal with the human condition as much as the circumstance, though it does march you through, in its entirety, a legal trial and its ramifications. Unfortunately, it does manage to stoop to the requisite finale as a "big chase." I'd like to see the O'Shaughnessy sisters apply their wit and imagination in a little less pedestrian way. "Breach" IS worth reading.
I have read four of their books now and pass them along to co-workers who also love them. I look forward to reading each one they publish.
This is a book worth giving a chance. Strong characters, and perfectly detailed plot.
