Set amid the darker side of Lake Tahoe's glamorous ski resorts, Acts of Malice has Nina taking on the case of Jim Strong, a member of South Lake Tahoe's most prominent families and the owners of the posh Paradise Ski Resort. With his brother Alex recently killed in a headline-making accident that occurred while they were skiing together, Jim fears he may be indicted in the death. When the coroner announces that Alex died from injuries unrelated to the accident, Jim is charged with murder. As Nina prepares to defend her client, she has no idea that this case will lead her into a terrifying confrontation with a psychopath or threaten all that she holds most dear. She never expects to witness the perplexing and tangled set of loyalties and alliances among the Strong family. Further complicating matters is Assistant District Attorney Collier Hallowell, back from sabbatical. Determined to put Jim Strong behind bars, he's equally resolved to pick up romantically where he and Nina left off - and to take their relationship in a completely new direction.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Talia | 1/1/2014

    " Learning about the law through Nina O'Reilly is enjoyable in the summertime. I find I can't put this series of mysteries down. A love affair in this story is a nice touch too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 10/31/2013

    " Ok, this isn't as hearty a 5 as a 5 usually means to me. However, this is far and away the best Nina Reilly novel I have read. The villain is truly evil. Nina finally finds happiness. But you never know how things are going to turn out... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 10/30/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lynn | 3/17/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacy | 12/20/2012

    " Pedantic. Relationships that moved too fast to be believed. Ridiculous descriptions of things in an attempt to warm the reader to the characters. Kind of boring, but not so boring that I couldn't finish it. Boring enough that I won't be reading anything else by this author. "

    " Nina Reilly is a lawyer with a 13-year-old son. She takes a case where a man is accused of killing his brother. Of course romance enters the plot. It is engaging until the end. This is the 5th in a series. "
