“Marcia Clark's first foray into crime fiction is a winner. Her first-person narrative focuses on L.A. Deputy District Attorney Rachel Knight's investigation into two seemingly unrelated cases, one involving a colleague's murder. This is an impressive debut that will leave you anticipating the next installment in what I hope will be a new series of legal thrillers.”

Description

Los Angeles D.A. Rachel Knight is a tenacious, wise-cracking, and fiercely intelligent prosecutor in the city's most elite division. When her colleague, Jake, is found dead at a grisly crime scene, Rachel is shaken to the core. She must take over his toughest case: the assault of a young woman from a prominent family.

But she can't stop herself from digging deeper into Jake's death, a decision that exposes a world of power and violence and will have her risking her reputation -- and her life -- to find the truth.

With her tremendous expertise in the nuances of L.A. courts and crime, and with a vibrant ensemble cast of characters, Marcia Clark combines intimate detail, riotous humor, and visceral action in a debut thriller that marks the launch of a major new figure on the crime-writing scene.
