Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

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.

If you like Marcia Clark you might also like to read books by John Grisham, Lisa Gardner and Lisa Scottoline.

Synopsis

Guilt by Association by Marcia Clark

When Deputy District Attorney Rachel Knight's journey home is interrupted by screaming sirens, she decides to follow them.

But what she finds when she arrives at a sleazy LA motel shatters her world: her trusted colleague Jake lies dead beside the body of a teenage male prostitute. The police say murder/suicide. Rachel's gut says different. Her search for proof will take her through the dark and tangled city, from its wealthy suburbs to its violent heart. And a truth so dangerous it could kill her.

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

'This introduction to LA special prosecutor Rachel Knight charms from the first line then surfs a tide of knockabout humour, sassy backchat and armour-piercing observation'
Daily Telegraph

'Knight makes a compelling protagonist - rebellious, straight-forward, salty'
Guardian

'An accomplished debut...Clark is a polished writer who knows her material'
Sunday Telegraph Australia

'Her first legal thriller, about a tenacious Los Angeles DA, is on the money'
Daily Mail

'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.'
Booklist
