Overview

In this digital-only short story, DA Rachel Knight and her besties take a Caribbean vacation and end up solving a crime.

With her besties Bailey and Toni in tow, Rachel leaves work and rainy LA behind and sets off for a much needed vacation in Aruba. Greeted by glittering sand and a balmy breeze, the three friends can't imagine anywhere more perfect.

But just minutes after hitting the beach, they're approached by a panicked young woman. A gofer on the biggest reality hit since "Survivor," she's lost the show's child star and must find her, now, before anyone else realizes she's gone. Rachel, Bailey, and Toni put their dreams of paradise on hold and embark on a whirlwind search for the girl--a search that ends with a twist so disturbing no one, not even a fortune-teller, could have seen it coming...

Marcia Clark began practicing law as a criminal defense attorney. She became a prosecutor in the L.A. District Attorney's Office in 1981, and spent ten years in the Special Trials Unit where she handled a number of high profile cases prior to the O.J. Simpson case, including the prosecution of stalker/murderer Robert Bardo, whose conviction for the murder of actress Rebecca Schaeffer resulted in legislation that offered victims better protection from stalkers as well as increased punishment for the offenders.

Since the Simpson trial, Ms. Clark has toured the U.S. and Canada giving lectures on a variety of women's issues including domestic violence and inspirational/motivational speeches, as well as lectures on the latest high profile cases, public service careers, and of course, the Trial of the Century.

In May of 1997, her book on the Simpson case, Without a Doubt was published and quickly rose to #1 on the New York Times, Wall St. Journal, Washington Post, LA Times, and Publisher's Weekly bestsellers lists.

From February 1998 to 2000 Marcia was under contract as a legal analyst and expert commentator for NBC, CNBC and MSNBC. She appeared weekly as the substitute host of Geraldo Rivera's "Rivera Live," and also hosted "Equal Time" for CNBC and "Judge and Jury" for MSNBC. Marcia has appeared on the "Oprah Winfrey Show," the "Larry King Show," the "Today" show, "The Early Show," and "Good Morning America," among others, and provides legal commentary on a wide variety of cable shows such as "Anderson Cooper 360" and "Issues with Jane Velez Mitchell."

Marcia Clark (with writing partner, Catherine LePard) has sold hour-long pilots to the FX network, Lifetime, and VH1 and developed a half hour comedy for NBC. She has also developed reality projects for CBS and was an executive producer of a one hour reality pilot for CBS.

Marcia has published three novels which feature Los Angeles Special Trials prosecutor Rachel Knight: Guilt by Association, Guilt by Degrees, and Killer Ambition, which is due out in June 2013. TNT has optioned the books and a drama series is currently in development. Marcia is attached as an executive producer. She's currently at work on her fourth novel.

Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite Rachel Knight is back, and this time Rachel and the rest of her trio, Bailey and Toni, are off on a Caribbean adventure. Intending to relax and get some sun, imagine the girls' surprise when they have to solve a crime along the way! With a child missing, it's no laughing matter, but with reality stars, nothing is for sure. The gang have a lot of work cut out for them before they can get back to the beach and those cute boys playing in the surf... Having never read one of the Rachel Knight books before, I have to admit that I was a little lost at first, but things picked up right away. I was able to dive seamlessly into the story and mystery right along with Rachel and the gang. The story itself was interesting, if a little silly at times. This is one of those reads you like to enjoy to really pull you out of a bad day and get your mood up a bit.  If I had a complaint, it was that the book was too short. I was unaware that it was just a "short story" and was taken aback when things moved so quickly. While everything was detailed and explained accurately, there was a lot missing. I feel that Marcia could easily expand this novella into a full-blown book. Readers would probably get that much more of a kick from it, especially those who are already fans of the series.

It tells you in the details of the book that it is 45 pages so you know that beforehand. It was actually 30 pages and the rest were of another book. I was only looking for a quick filler and I actually enjoyed it. I wanted to get to the end to see what happens. It also left me wanting to read the next book....I don't know if it is a series but it surely leaves it open for one.

The story is straightforward, but it's fun to see the characters being themselves, and the ending adds a bit to the long-term plot for Rachel.
