LoveReading Expert Review of Guilt by Association

One of our Debuts of the Year 2011.

This is one hell of a debut novel. It’s a super sharp, superbly constructed page-turning legal thriller introducing us to a new protagonist, Los Angeles D.A.Rachel Knight, who you will want to read more about – and fear not more will be on the way. The realism of the book isn’t surprising when you find out that the author Marcia Clark was the lead prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson murder case.

Sarah Broadhurst

Guilt by Association Synopsis

A Deputy DA specialising in high-profile cases, Rachel Knight is addicted to her work and fiercely loyal to her friends. But when her colleague Jake is found dead in a seedy Los Angeles hotel room next to the body of a teenage male prostitute, Rachel realises she might not know those around her as well as she thinks. The police want to write off Jake's death as a straightforward murder/suicide. Rachel doesn't believe it's that simple. Warned off the case but determined to track down her friend's killer, the investigation takes her through the dark and tangled city from its wealthy suburbs to its seamy downtown heart. And a truth so dangerous it could kill her.

Marcia Clark Press Reviews

'You must read this book: it is wildly and complexly plotted, ebulliently witty and filled with riotous humor; it details the inner workings of the L.A. legal system with unprecedented accuracy and verve - and to top it off, it is a damn, damn, good thriller.'
James Ellroy

'Marcia Clark's debut novel showcases her experience and knowledge of the legal system. The pace, plot and dialogue are as sharp as they come in the genre.'
David Baldacci

'A corker of a debut novel'
Kirkus Review

'A triumphant fiction debut...Readers will want to see a lot more of Knight, who combines strength of character and compassion with all-too-human foibles.'
Publishers Weekly

'Remarkably accomplished...A top-notch legal thriller that will leave readers wanting more.'
