GUILT BY DEGREES by Marcia Clark is an interesting crime thriller/fiction. D.A. Rachel Knight returns with another fast paced thriller. See,”Guilty By Association”,but “Guilt By Degrees” can be read as a stand alone. Ride through the L.A. court system with Rachel Knight. Full of murder,secrets,and romance with harrowing suspense and witty banter. Come on a ride with Rachel as she and Detective Baily Keller locate a killer and work through the L.A. court system. A sit on the edge of your seat thriller. A nail biting story from the first page to the last. A not to miss thriller/mystery. Received for an honest review from the publisher.Details can be found at Mulholland Books,the authors website, and My Book Addiction and More.
RATING: 4.5
HEAT RATING: Mild: Mild detailed scenes of intimacy,mild violence or profanity

Rachel Knight has been successfully running from the ghosts of the past that haunt her every day. She is at the top of her legal game in the Los Angeles DA’s office, but still holds back when it comes to her personal life even with her best friends. When Rachel picks up a case that every other lawyer wanted to kick to the curb, the unexpected drawback is the tragic memories she kept under control would come back. Rachel has to take control of her emotions and her life. Right now, every ounce of her inner strength is being called up to keep her from jumping off the emotional deep end.

When Rachel took on the case to find the murderer of a homeless man, her fellow lawyers in the DA’s office dismiss her. The timeline for results is short so she pulls in her friends on the police force and together they walk through what on the surface appears to be a random murder on the streets of Los Angeles but in reality is anything but that. Rachel digs deep to get answers and when they start popping even Rachel is shocked by the turn of events and the undercurrent that is pulling her toward terrifying results. The heartless crime that drove the start of all this him to this life is even more disturbing than anything Rachel has ever reviewed.

Then the tide turns completely against Rachel and every demon that has ever knocked on her subconscious comes barging through the door Rachel knows she will finish this case but at what cost. It no longer is a game to find out what happened to someone else as much as it is keeping herself out of the morgue and when evil is looking for you is there any place you can hide?

Marcia Clark writes stories that are filled with mesmerizing details, characters you relate to, and an abundance of unbelievable plot diversity. Ms. Clark knows how to give the reader a proper balance of startling information added to take your breath away revelations.

    Not a fan

    This is the first book I have read by Ms. Clark. Definitely not a page turner. I found the writing to be simplistic. Seriously, how important is it to know where and what they eat on a daily basis?! And the ending? Well, it is not tidy, to say the least. Would not recommend.

    Really?

    I'm a voracious reader, but this is the first Marcia Clark book I've read. It will likely be my last. It seems as though she is writing for teens; at the very least it is condescending. The prose and dialogue are sophomoric and awkward, (for instance, what adult woman calls her close friends her "besties"?) I'm glad it was a daily special or I would really regret the expense.
