Twelve years back, a young lady vanished. Presently a producer has made a motion picture about it. The young lady’s guardians call it attack of protection. A lady legal advisor calls it murder.
The O’Shaughnessy sisters, Mary and Pamela, have been composing aggregately under the nom de plume “Perri O’Shaughnessy” for a decent time now, constructing a voluminous mythos around Nina Reilly, a professionally skilled yet by and by a harried lawyer who has an affinity for pulling in peril even while shunning it.

O’Shaughnessy brings very much a fascinating blend into CASE OF LIES, with a gathering of MIT understudies, one of whom is a true blue numerical virtuoso nearly detailing out one of the world’s top considered noteworthy riddles. The understudies hit the Tahoe gambling clubs with the objective of busting the tables by using a card-tallying plan based upon – what else? – Mathematical likelihood.

Instance OF LIES isn’t all prime numbers and quantum hypothesis. A long way from it. There’s a passel of intriguing characters, a touch of sex and blasts (notwithstanding occurring all the while at a certain point), and to a great degree all around clarified plot that is sufficiently unpredictable to be fascinating and, given the math tie-in, very outlandish.
