Dreams of the Dead

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.

The secretary and lone staffer in the Law Offices of Nina Reilly, Sandy ordinarily stood at Nina’s desk, so either she was tired or some cataclysm was afoot. Since at 8:00 a.m. Sandy usually was well into her fourth cup of coffee, she probably wasn’t... see more
