Overview

First in a new series from bestselling author and famed prosecutor Marcia Clark, a terrific writer and storyteller (James Patterson).

Samantha Brinkman, an ambitious, hard-charging Los Angeles criminal defense attorney, is struggling to make a name for herself and to drag her fledgling practice into the big leagues. Sam lands a high-profile double-murder case in which one of the victims is a beloved TV star and the defendant is a decorated veteran LAPD detective. It promises to be exactly the kind of media sensation that would establish her as a heavy hitter in the world of criminal law.

Though Sam has doubts about his innocence, she and her two associates (her closest childhood friend and a brilliant ex-con) take the case. Notorious for living by her own rules and fearlessly breaking everyone else s Samantha pulls out all the stops in her quest to uncover evidence that will clear the detective. But when a shocking secret at the core of the case shatters her personal world, Sam realizes that not only has her client been playing her, he might be one of the most dangerous sociopaths she s ever encountered."

Clark’s new Samantha “Sam” Brinkman series begins with the whip-smart, ambitious, and relatively new attorney trying to boost her reputation by taking on a high-profile, seemingly unwinnable case—the defense of LAPD Detective Dale Pearson, accused of the double murder of his ex-girlfriend, a popular TV actress, and her roommate. Sam narrates this hard-edged legal thriller, and reader Gilbert lends her a fast-paced delivery that is usually intense and aggressive, stopping just short of shrill. Her deviations include softening during personal moments with her teammates—office manager Michelle and eager novice investigator Alex, who’s a former client. The new client, Pearson, brings out a few of Sam’s other vocal shifts as the plot twists and turns, among them suspicion, caution, elation, and self-doubt. Gilbert’s version of Pearson is hard-boiled and straight-talking. Gilbert’s Michelle is friendly but sarcastic, and at times sharply critical; her Alex is sweetly naive, especially in a continuing joke involving quoting from a book of legal ethics. Some listeners may feel at the novel’s end that Sam should have paid more attention to that book. A Thomas & Mercer paperback. (May)
