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.When I first heard about Guilt by Association, I knew right away I wanted to read it. Experts claim you should "write what you know", and there is an automatic expectation when someone like Marcia Clark (whose career was in spotlight) writes a book. I'm happy to report Guilt by Association surpassed my expectations.
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.
Clark's insight into criminal behavior and law enforcement made Guilt by Association very authentic. The characters were likeable - the kind you would want to go out and have a few drinks with at the end of the day. The story was complex and complete. If you are a fan of mysteries, crime fiction, or legal thrillers, Guilt by Association will not disappoint you.
