Description

In the third installment of Marcia Clark's bestselling series, attorney Samantha Brinkman's investigation into a family's deadly secrets is compromised by a threat from her past.

When the daughter of prominent civil litigator Graham Hutchins is found with her throat slashed, the woman's spurned ex-boyfriend seems the likely suspect. But only days later, the young man dies in what appears to be a suicide. Or was it? Now authorities are faced with a possible new crime. And their person of interest is Hutchins. After all, avenging the death of his daughter is the perfect reason to kill. If he's as innocent as he claims, only one lawyer has what it takes to prove it: his friend and colleague Samantha Brinkman.

It's Sam's obligation to trust her new client. Yet the deeper she digs on his behalf, the more entangled she becomes in a thicket of family secrets, past betrayals, and multiple motives for murder. To win her case, she's prepared to bend any law and cross any boundary that stands in her way. Sam has always played by her own rules, and it's always worked…so far. But this case cuts so deep and so personal that one false move could cost her everything.

    At 463 pages, Clark offers us a fairly lengthy legal thriller. Like most legal thrillers, the focus is on the resolution of the confusing puzzle rather than on a shootout or other physical battle. The best part of the novel is the relentlessness of the driving plot. It is not consumed with describing everything in poetic imagery but on Irving together the answer to a riddle by meeting again and again with witnesses and constantly brainstorming.

    In it, Clark touches on issues such as online harassment, media involvement in criminal cases, revenge porn, child sexual abuse, and human trafficking.

    It is a legal thriller without a Perry Mason courtroom scene of revealing cross-examination and the lawyer character is a bit ethically challenged. Not all of the story is realistic. And, at times, it slipped into chick-lit. But the plot moves forward aggressively enough that such issues can be forgiven in the interest of an exciting plot.

    Thank you to Thomas and Merced for providing this ARC.

    When you pick up a Marcia Clark book, you know what you are getting. You get an interesting story with some likable characters, and if you are lucky, some unique plots and twists. I enjoy reading her work, it is clean, enjoyable writing - obviously written by an attorney. This latest installment in the life of private defense attorney Samantha Brinkman looks at two murders, but are they? Do appearances reflect the facts? Very interesting story here, making in an enjoyable read.
