Overview

" Moral Defense] has it all: a hard-charging lawyer heroine, tough-as-nails cops...as well as fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants pacing and page-turning twists." --The Associated Press

For defense attorney Samantha Brinkman, it's not about guilt or innocence--it's about making sure her clients walk.

In the follow-up to bestselling Blood Defense, Samantha is hired as the legal advocate for Cassie Sonnenberg after a brutal stabbing left the teenager's father and brother dead, and her mother barely clinging to life. It's a tabloid-ready case that has the nation in an uproar--and Sam facing her biggest challenge yet. Why did Cassie survive? Is she hiding something?

As Sam digs in to find the answers, she's surprised to find herself identifying with Cassie, becoming more and more personally entangled in the case. But when Sam finally discovers the reason for that kinship, she faces a choice she never imagined she'd have to make.

In Clarks outstanding sequel to Blood Defense, Samantha Brinkman, an L.A. defense attorney, agrees to represent 15-year-old Cassie Sonnenberg, whose father and brother were fatally stabbed in their home by an assailant who also left Cassies mother at deaths door. When Samantha interviews Cassie, the girl says that she initially hid under her bed and thus escaped the killers notice. She got only a brief glimpse of the fleeing culprit, who appeared to be a skinhead. Since Cassies mother, Paula, a city councilwoman, recently received death threats for successfully advocating passage of a strict new law targeting gangs, it seems plausible that a gang member was behind the bloody mayhem. But even as Samantha tries to protect Cassies interests, she must deal with the life-threatening consequences of prior decisions she made on other cases in furtherance of her private code of justice. Clark deepens her already fascinating lead, while adeptly juggling several subplots. Agent: Dan Conaway, Writers House. (Nov.)
