The second Marcia Clark book
This is the second in Marcia Clark’s Rachel Knight series. Rachel, an assistant D.A., is waiting in court for a bail hearing when she sees an extremely ineffective D.A. from her office totally screw up a bail hearing for a client. She jumps in after the fact and offers to appeal for the defendant. She earns the ire of this incompetent but cunning Assistant D.A. The murder involved what appeared to be a homeless man and no one was much interested, but she and her cohort, Lieutenant Bailey Keller find evidence that the person being held for the murder didn’t do it and have the charges dismissed. They also find out that the so-called homeless man is the brother of a LAPD police detective who had been murdered two years previously. His wife had been tried for the murder and the jury found her not guilty. And now his brother had been murdered as well. Suddenly the case has more importance. Rachel and Bailie keep doggedly investigating to determine the truth of who killed both brothers. These books have a good deal of witty commentary between Bailie and Rachel, and the tension is maintained throughout the book. The narrator does a very good job of portraying especially the two women, but others as well.

An airport book but a fun airport book
I picked this up after watching the OJ series on Netflix, where Iearned that Marcia Clark went on to write thrillers. The plot is intricate and interesting, as well as some of the characters. One reviewer said it's a chick lit whodunit. Yes, there is that. But I did enjoy this book and would recommend for anyone interested in a fast paced and interesting procedural and cop thriller.
