Patricia Reid rated it 4 of 5 stars
This is an action packed book taking the reader in several different directions. Nate Lewis is an attorney representing the property owner that shot and killed a crook ripping off his marijuana garden. The shooter is a former Marine and does not intend to let anyone get away with raiding his property. Nate has his hands full building a defense.

Nate's wife, Christina Lima, has taken over public relations for her cousins Mendocino winery. Christina has more than any woman should be asked to handle. She is pregnant. Christina's father has Alzheimer's. Then Christina's dying aunt asks Christina to mediate her cousin's ongoing battles for control of the winery.

While attempting to prepare an accounting to present to the cousins Christina is injured. Whether the injury is an accident or on purpose is not known. Then it begins to look like Christina's accident and Nate's case might be connected.

Burning Questions and A Shot In The Arm are the first two books in this trilogy. I started with The Fourth Conspirator, but I intend to go back and read the first two books.

This is a great book that explores a couples relationship and personal history, both individually and as a family, extending back to the Spanish Inquisition. Deftly composed taking the reader from the start on the East Coast Portuguese fishing family to their only recently uncovered California winemaking relatives in Mendocino California. The twists and turns of the surprises unleashed on a lawyer and his spouse, who finally are having the child that has been demanded produced by an anxious mother-in-law, that has kept hidden the traumatizing news from her daughter, that in fact they are not from Catholic stock in Portugal, but secretly hidden Jewish refugees from the Inquisition, is one of many mind bending realities this poor wife must deal with before the end of this riveting book. 5 Stars on this excellent piece that you will absolutely love.

Sometimes life takes us on a journey that we often do not expect. Characters … are strong, well defined.  The Fourth Conspirator is more than just about murder… A provoking and outstanding novel.

The Fourth Conspirator: Compelling from beginning to end,

This reader rated The Fourth Conspirator 5.0 out of 5 stars on January 13, 2013 
Compelling from beginning to end,
Another amazing book in the trilogy! Picked the book up and could not put it down. Two long, seemingly short, reading sessions later and I've reached the end of the trilogy with a tear in my eye. This was, by far, one of the most compelling books I've read in a very long time. The reveal at the beginning of the book as to the final conclusion is nothing compared to the journey. I want to keep reading but, alas I've reached the end. J. Simon (San Diego, CA)
