Staff Picks Category: Legal thriller

Guilt by Association by Marcia Clark []



I was not expecting to like this book. I thought that this was a person taking advantage of name recognition to put out a book. Whether or not that is the case, I found myself genuinely engaged by the characters in this legal thriller. Los Angeles D.A. Rachel Knight is stunned at the death of her colleague, Jake Pahlmeyer, who is found shot to death in a sleazy motel along with a 17-year-old boy, raising ugly suspicions that Rachel doesn’t want to acknowledge. Rachel is warned off investigating further, but risks her career to clear her friend’s name. Quick-paced with plot turns and authenticity — the author does know her stuff, prosecutorily. Recommended and looking forward to the next in the series.
