#42 – Guilt By Association – Marcia Clark

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.

I really liked this book ! Very intelligently written, Marcia takes it one step further in Guilt By Association.  Wise cracking, Good Looking,  with the tenacity, humour, and no-nonsense attitude, with a smidgen of screw you thrown in, she gives the book and her characters that edge that I haven’t seen before.  As for the usual fare of cop and lawyer hooking up scenario, thankfully which isn’t in the book gives it even more authenticity.

Who knows what will happen in the second book, but, I’m hoping that it is just as good or even better than the first.

    • I am not sure though it won’t happen in the second book, she does have that idealism, since the main character does go out on a date with a member of the police department….
