Lightning strikes twice.

Two people have died in Lake Tahoe in shocking accidents.nbsp;nbsp;In a nearly empty parking lot, a hit-and-run driver kills probation officer Anna Meade Hallowell.nbsp;nbsp;High up on a jagged mountain, wife abuser Ray de Beers gets what he deserves: he's struck by lightning.nbsp;nbsp;Attorney Nina Reilly, hiking on a rare day off from her one-woman law practice, sees him die.nbsp;nbsp;So does her date, Tahoe deputy DA Collier Hallowell.nbsp;nbsp;Still shaken from his wife's violent death, Hallowell is hit hard by the accident.nbsp;nbsp;It's a bad end to a first date...nbsp;nbsp;and the start of a case that will test Nina's ethics and her heart.

Nina is certain de Beers's death is an act of God.nbsp;nbsp;But his aging father wants to exhume the body to rule out foul play.nbsp;nbsp;De Beers's frantic wife and teenage twins hire Nina to stop the disinterment.nbsp;nbsp;What gets unearthed are secrets that raise new questions about Anna Hallowell's death, an indictment against one twin for murder, and a damning piece of evidence that can convict the boy .nbsp;nbsp;.nbsp;nbsp;.nbsp;nbsp;unless Nina obstructs justice by hiding it.nbsp;nbsp;No good lawyer will take that kind of risk.nbsp;nbsp;But a brilliant lawyer, one with a passion for truth, just might .nbsp;nbsp;.nbsp;nbsp;.nbsp;nbsp;.
