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.

Review by Library Journal (2011-10-15)

When a long-presumed-dead son files legal papers to stall the sale of his father's ski resort, lone wolf attorney Nina Reilly is retained to determine whether it's a scam. Nina dreads this case and not just because the missing son murdered her husband-she secretly knows he was killed by her lover and buried deep in the Lake Tahoe forests. Although this 13th installment in the series featuring smart, scrappy, and stilettoed Reilly continues the story line of the series' fifth outing, Acts of Malice, it recaps enough background to stand alone.

From the first chapter it drips with ominous mystery, a mood maintained by reader January LaVoy, who slips seamlessly between male/female and heroine/villain without distracting from the action or dropping spoilers. Fans of legal thrillers and mysteries should find this audiobook gripping.

Book description

Perri O’Shaughnessy will keep you turning pages into the night, applauds USA Today, in praise of the celebrated novels of suspense starring the audacious yet all-too-human defense attorney Nina Reilly. Now, in a spellbinding new thriller, O’Shaughnessy plunges Nina back into the center of a murderous family game, and reawakens a very real nightmare she had every reason to believe was dead... and buried.

A mix of slick and seamy, South Lake Tahoe, California, is the perfect setting for adventurers, criminals—and lawyers. In addition to coping with her demanding, sometimes creepy, clients, Nina Reilly is dealing with prickly personal issues involving her sixteen-year-old son Bob, his estranged father, and her investigator, confidante, and sometimes lover Paul van Wagoner. Then, in walks disaster. The millionaire owner of a Tahoe ski resort, Philip Strong is the father of Jim Strong, a sociopath who devastated many innocent lives, including Nina’s. Two years earlier, she had to defend Jim against charges of murder. He shattered her life, then vanished. Paul van Wagoner made sure of it.

Now in negotiations to sell his ski resort, Philip has received a letter purportedly from his fugitive son in extradition-free Brazil, demanding his share of the profits. Philip is convinced it’s authentic. 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. Nina begins to question their links to her new client, and the truth about Jim Strong’s sudden disappearance. As Nina’s worst fears flood back, with time running out, she’s about to discover that the dreams of the dead can still destroy the living.

With its breakneck pace, pulsing human drama, and serpentine twists, Dreams of the Dead establishes once again why Perri O’Shaughnessy has been hailed as a master of the legal thriller (Vincent Bugliosi).
