Motion To Suppress
By "Perri O'Shaughnessy"
(Pamela and Mary O'Shaughnessy)

It was murder. Murder most foul. The jealous husband was found sitting placidly on the bottom of Lake Tahoe. The prime suspect is the less-than-grieving widow, Misty Patterson. Nina Reilly, her defense attorney, believes Myste is innocent. One minor problem: Myste keeps confessing to the crime! Another problem: someone wants Myste dead, and doesn't care if Nina Peilly is killed with her.

Motion to Suppress is a good book. Far better than most authors' first attempt (which this book is). The book was published by Island Books (Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc.) in 1995. ISBN 0-440-22068-8 with 450 pages.

Nina Reilly must not only fight for Myste's freedom; she must also fight male biases against a women defense attorney, and the unknown person or persons out to kill her and Myste. She must also deal with her estranged spouse and the needs of her young son.

On the Shy David Book Review Scale from one to six stars (six being best), I think this book deserves three stars.
