Twelve years ago, a young girl disappeared. Now a filmmaker has made a movie about it. The girl's parents call it invasion of privacy. A woman lawyer calls it murder. The bloodstains on the courtroom floor belong to attorney Nina Reilly. Months earlier she'd been shot during a heated murder trial. She should have died that day. Instead, Nina has returned to the same Lake Tahoe court. Her only concession to her lingering fear is to give up criminal law. She figures an invasion of privacy lawsuit is a nice, safe civil action that will help her support her young son and pay the bills for her one-woman law office. She figures wrong. Nina's client is Terry London, a filmmaker whose documentary about a missing girl is raising disturbing questions. The girl's distraught parents believe the film invades their privacy. But Terry's brutal murder changes everything. Breaking her promise to herself, Nina decides to defend Terry's accused murderer, a man she'd known years before and hoped never to see again. Suddenly the secrets of Nina's past are beginning to surface in a murder case that gets more dangerous every day. The evidence against her client is shocking and ironclad--a video of Terry's dying words. The only chance Nina has to save the man may be illegal. And if it fails, Nina may lose the case, her practice...and even her life.

Hard-driving Attorney Nina Reilly returns from a near-fatal gunshot wound in Motion to Suppress to take on the toughest and most intriguing case of her career.
Anxious to avoid the kind of case that almost killed her and determined to spend a restful winter at home in Lake Tahoe with her son Bobby, Attorney Nina Reilly vows to take on only the most uncomplicated cases. When filmmaker Terry London implores Nina to help her defend her documentary against charges of invasion of privacy, it seems an easy case to add to her work load. But Nina is soon wishing she'd never become involved, as it becomes clear that the film holds a crucial clue to a decades-old unsolved murder and her new client poses a greater danger than any criminal Nina has ever come up against. Before the filmmaker can make good on her mysterious threats to harm Nina, she's found murdered, and Nina finds herself in the middle of a full-blown homicide--homicide that is somehow connected to Nina's past. When an old lover surfaces, he brings painful memories and new dangers as Nina fights to protect herself, her troubled son Bobby, and the delicate balance of their new life together from the destructive wake of a killer's path.About the Author:
