Marcia Clark has done it again. She broke out with her debut in "Guilt by Association." This is where we first meet Rachel Knight an up and coming prosecutor who has been assigned to a special task force. This task force specializes in difficult and perplexing cases.
In this second novel "Guilt by Degrees" we are once again brought into Rachel Knight's world. She is once again given a case that will prove to be her most difficult yet. She is asked to prosecute the case of a suspectless homicide of a homeless man. She will once again tap the resources close at hand, Bailey a homicide detective, as well as her prosecuting team.
Things aren't always as they seem as Rachel and her team is soon to find out with connections that lead back to a case from a year ago. It’s going to be hard trying to beat the clock and uncover all the connections in this case before the team ends up being permanently disconnected, with Rachel as the top prize.
Someone has been watching D.A. Rachel Knight--someone who's Rachel's equal in brains, but with more malicious intentions. It began when a near-impossible case fell into Rachel's lap, the suspectless homicide of a homeless man. In the face of courthouse backbiting and a gauzy web of clues, Rachel is determined to deliver justice. She's got back-up: tough-as-nails Detective Bailey Keller. As Rachel and Bailey stir things up, they're shocked to uncover a connection with the vicious murder of an LAPD cop a year earlier. Something tells Rachel someone knows the truth, someone who'd kill to keep it secret.
Harrowing, smart, and riotously entertaining, GUILT BY DEGREES is a thrilling ride through the world of LA courts with the unforgettable Rachel Knight.
