Plot or Premise
Nina Reilly gets a call from her old mentor to sit second-chair on a murder case that started with a grave robbery.
What I Liked
The story that the client tells is surprisingly plausible…he was hired to rob a grave, which he did. Except when he’s caught, the cops go back and check the grave he robbed and find out that there’s now a fresh body in it and he’s charged with murder. It’s a simple twist but there is little doubt through the case that he’s not guilty and there is “something else” going on. And just to complicate things, her mentor is basically dumping the case on her, has done almost no prep, is showing early signs of dementia, and the PI he hired did almost no work either. Nina has her hands full just as Paul proposes.
