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.

This was an amusing & light read. Excellent dialogue from Rachel Knight & everyone else, she gets all the best lines. When the FBI take over a case where a friend & a fellow DA is murdered Rachel decides to investigate for herself with her friend, police officer Bailey Keller. She also shares his work load & has to investigate a rape.

After watching the the OJ Simpson trial , I found out the crown prosecutor, Marcia Clark, decided to write books, so their loss was our gain. I love the banter between Rachel Knight and her best friend Bailey Keller. I found out that this is just a limited series and then she has another series started. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but I did enjoy the 2 books I've read so far.

With her tremendous expertise in the nuances of Los Angeles courts and crime, and with a vibrant ensemble cast of characters, Marcia Clark combines intimate detail, riotous humor, and visceral action in her debut thriller. (Edited from library catalog description.)

Marcia Clark, of course, is the former Los Angeles deputy district attorney who was the lead prosecutor on the O. J. Simpson murder case. She co-wrote a bestselling nonfiction book about the trial, Without a Doubt, and was a frequent columnist on legal issues.
This is very good, especially for a first time novel. I didn't think it would be after reading the first twenty pages or so. I think it was because Rachel talks in a certain way that is unusual on first reading. Once I got past the initial pages and became accustomed to the voice of Rachel Knight, I really got into the book. It could have used an index, however, with all the characters floating in and out of the story. I look forward to read the next Rachel Knight novel.
