Dreams of the Dead by Perri O'Shaughnessy

The latest spellbinding thriller featuring attorney Nina Reilly, now in mass market. Nina must defend herself from a vicious killer she had every reason to believe was dead…but her nightmare is far from over.

A TANGLED LEGAL BATTLE. A MURDEROUS FAMILY GAME. A NIGHTMARE NINA REILLY BELIEVED WAS LONG BURIED.

Two years ago, Nina Reilly had to defend Jim Strong against charges of murder, after which the sociopath—who devastated many lives, including Nina’s—vanished and was presumed dead. Now Philip Strong, Jim’s father and millionaire owner of a Tahoe ski resort, has come to Nina with a letter from his fugitive son, demanding his share of the profits from the pending sale of Philip’s resort. Nina’s certain it’s a con, but to prove that means exposing the secrets of someone very close to her. Then two local women are brutally murdered, and Nina probes their ties to her new client. As Nina’s worst fears flood back, she’s about to discover that the dreams of the dead can still destroy the living.

First-rate excitement from “a master of the legal thriller” (Vincent Bugliosi), Dreams of the Dead holds readers spellbound with its breakneck pace, pulsing human drama, and serpentine twists.

Love Perri O'Shaughnessy and her Nina Reilly series but this one seemed to rush to and then through the ending without a proper closure. We had loads of buildup with Kurt, Paul, Bob, and even Kelly and then 'boom' it was all over with a sentence or two. Give us a little more next time please like you did in the other 303 pages. Great story development around the Strong family and the suspense surrounding Jim and the sale of Paradise. Loved how Sandy is always worked into the story so well. Hope it's not so long until we hear about Nina again.

I love the Nina Reilly series and look forward impatiently to the next release always! This book was good but too short, didn't spend enough energy on the re-establishment of Nina-Paul relationship and why Bob suddenly decided not to go to Sweden. I like them long and meaty with a lot of interpersonal back and forth. This book was triple spaced and just seemed to be the result of trying to get SOMETHING out there for the fans. A bit of a disappointment. Hopefully won't be the norm !

O'Shaugnessy keeps you guessing and at the end when you think you know "who done it" you are surprised. Thoroughly enjoyable. A fan.

Lake Tahoe attorney Nina Reilly and Philip Strong share a tragedy. Two years ago, his son Jim killed his adulterous wife Heidi and allegedly murdered his younger brother Alex. Soon after the homicides, Jim vanished and was assumed dead (see Acts of Malice). Philip informs Nina that he was finalizing the selling of his Lake Tahoe resort ski lodge but the sale was blocked in court allegedly by Jim who is apparently living in Brazil. Philip believes the affidavit is a fraud filed by someone trying to obtain his son's share of the receipts. Nina fears Jim lives and remains a threat to her family and friends especially when females associated with casinos are suddenly murdered. The unexpected but realistic twists to this Nina Reilly thriller make for a powerful tale as Nina recalls what her then boyfriend prosecutor said when she defended Jim that. He believed the man was a psychopath who will go after her and her family if he is convicted. She believes he is back in Tahoe while her "protector" Paul von Wagoner knows someone stalks his former lover. Dreams of the Dead is a super thrilling twister. Harriet Klausner

Did not disappoint! You truly feel like your a member of the family watching from the outside. After a few books you can easily visualize Tahoe and the surrounding area. Excellent read from these two authors.

Once again the pages of O'Shaughnessy's book went flying too fast. I could not stop because I really care about Nina, Paul, Sandy and Nina's family. It is like reading about my own family, perhaps cousins. This book kept you guessing until the end. I changed my mind serveal times as to who the killer was and also the sub plot of whether Nina would realize that Paul is her true love. I love Tahoe and visited there twice so I can picture the scenery. Why did you make me wait so long for a book? Hope another is on its way soon.
