What a book! You must read this book. I always liked Marcia Clark so when I saw this book on the B&N Store Bookshelf,I took a chance and what a happy choice this was. From the first chapter she draws you in and doesn't let go until the end. As well as a great and suspenseful story line, her characters are so likeable and engaging. Get this book, your favorite lounge chair, your favorits snack and drink and enjoy the ride. Kudos Marcia! This book is a winner.

over hyped

This is not a very good read. Lots of restaurants (at least 7 if I remember), lots of drinking, lots of elevator rides and cross Los Angeles trips not to mention the trips down various corridors. Do we really want to know about the quality of clothes our main character wears? Oh yes, the mystery! Simplistic and not very engaging. This book was a bore. A previous reviewer says it is witty. I say it is wittless.

    As a member of the elite Special Trials division, Los Angel

    As a member of the elite Special Trials division, Los Angeles DA Rachel Knight was accustomed to investigating and prosecuting high profile cases. When a close associate and fellow prosecutor within their division is found dead, she simply cannot believe that the obvious explanation of a murder/suicide is accurate. Convinced that Jake was not a pedophile, did not commit suicide or murder, with the help of her friend Detective Bailey Keller, Rachel risks her job and her life to covertly find the answer to Jake's death.

    I was looking forward to a great legal mystery with some courtroom drama. This book did not live up to my expectations. The plot itself is interesting but it read more like a TV drama and not a very good one. I did enjoy reading about a DA's involvement in investigating and prosecuting cases. Sadly, that was largely overshadowed by Clark spending too much time describing the room, the person's clothes all the meals, alcoholic drinks and designer labels we were forced to endure. By the time Clark gets to the real story Guilt by Associations is disjointed and does not flow. I love a good mystery romance that leaves me guessing until the end but Guilt by Association was not one of the books that I would recommend.

    I received a copy of eBook from Net Galley and Publisher Mulholland Books for my review.

    Was the main character a lawyer? The only time she was in court was to drool over a police detecive. She was, however, expert at locating restaurants and could explain in great detail the items on the menu in each place. Did I miss something: Who is Romy? That being said, I was looking for a good book that had very good reviews. I would not recommend this book for numerous reasons including poor character development, unrealistic and unbelievable story line, and predictable conclusion. With that being said, I will not be purchasing the next book. Sorry, Ms Clark, job not well done.
