Guilt by Association by Marcia Clark

Los Angeles DA Rachel Knight does not believe that her colleague from work, Jake, was a pedophile who murdered a young blackmailer and then committed suicide.  But the cops don't agree.  So she decides to check things out on her own...

Mullholland Books published this book yesterday.  They sent me a copy of the book for review (thank you).  Check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Rachel doesn't have a lot of time to devote to Jake's "murder/suicide" because she has to take over his cases.  And one of them is a young woman who was sexually assaulted in her home.  The father of the young woman is a very important man in the community and he wants the case resolved NOW!

The storyline is authentic, complicated, and fast moving.  The characters are tough, high-minded, and determined to do the best job they can.  There always obstacles when you decide to seek the truth rather than an easier answer.

Ms. Clark was the lead prosecutor on O J Simpson's murder trial, and her experience resonates throughout this book.  

I highly recommend this book.  It has a strong plot, a good flow, and is written well.  Ms. Clark says it took her a while to get the story right, but she sure did.

If you'd like my copy of this ARC, leave a comment here on my blog and email me at info @ with your name AND address and tell me why you would like to win.

Get a copy folks, it's good reading!
