Paperback
In Rachel Knight, author and OJ Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark has created a feisty heroine with class and style – a terrific character for a heart-thumping thriller series set in LA.

‘A terrific writer and storyteller’ James Patterson


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.

Rachel Knight returns in the novels GUILT BY DEGREES, KILLER AMBITION and THE COMPETITION and the short stories If I’m Dead and Trouble In Paradise for more L.A. crime and court action!

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

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

Praise for the Rachel Knight series
.
Spying on the system's inner workings proves increasingly addictive, and it's refreshing to find a lead character pursuing a stressful life because she actually enjoys it. A blade-sharp read.
