Publisher's Summary

Nina's not sleeping much these days. She's recovering from a great loss, haunted by a killer who may still be tracking her, and working on a tough new case. Her client is a 16-year-old girl charged with first-degree murder. Nikki Zack is a rebel, a thief, and the best friend of Nina's son, Bob. Did she steal something from her uncle, a prominent plastic surgeon, and then kill him with an ancient samurai sword? To help find out, Nina calls in private investigator Paul Van Wagoner, her ex-lover and constant ally, whose bravado doesn't betray his own sleepless nights. As they work through the twisting lies surrounding Nikki, it becomes brutally clear to Nina that she must pull an ace out of her sleeve in the courtroom to save her client, and solve the mystery surrounding Paul to save herself.

very difficult read.

I forced myself to finish this book. I didn't enjoy the characters, Nina especially. I didn't like the dialogue of the children either. I've actually never written a poor review of any author previously. I've found more compelling characterization and dialogue from many authors south fast less experience than this one. the saving grace of this book was the handling of three courtroom scenes which were well written.
