Author(s): Marcia Clark
Rachel Knight has never been one to let justice slide from the grip of the law. So when a deputy district attorney mishandles a murder case and then shrugs it off - the victim was a homeless guy, so who cares? - Rachel takes the case on herself, over the objections of potentially backstabbing rivals. With the help of Detective Bailey Keller, Rachel finds a missing piece of the puzzle, and realises that the case is connected to the vicious murder of a LAPD cop a year earlier. The primary suspect in that case had been acquitted, but now Rachel and Bailey are hot on the trail of new leads. What Rachel doesn't know is that she's being watched. Someone is following her every move, and just waiting for their chance to strike...
'It's no big surprise that Marcia Clark knows her way around a courtroom, and a murder mystery - but she's also a terrific writer and storyteller.' -- James Patterson "Marcia Clark knows her villains, and GUILT BY DEGREES gives us one you won't forget. She also gives us one of the toughest and most appealing heroes to come along in a very long time. Prosecutor Rachel Knight is smart, funny, and just about fearless in her pursuit of justice and a good martini. GUILT BY DEGREES kept me guessing to the last page - and then impatient to read more about Rachel Knight." -- Joseph Finder
