Abstract:

In the mountain resort town of South Lake Tahoe, Nina Reilly is known for taking on the underdog cases, the kind that can make--or break--her one-woman law practice. Her latest case begins in the middle of a summer night when she is called away to meet with a new client at her office who gives her name as Jessie Potter. The frightened young woman has just hit a huge slot machine jackpot, and the men in suits are waiting to hand her the check just as soon as she tells them her real identity. Nina helps her client devise a plan to collect the money while keeping her true identity a secret. Unfortunately, powerful interests have lined up to grab the money. By the time Nina discovers that Jessie is withholding vital information, it might be too late for her client and even for Nina herself. Because somewhere in the night, people are dying. A cold-blooded, obsessed killer will stop at nothing to get that jackpot.
