Someone has been watching D.A. Rachel Knight—someone who’s Rachel’s equal in brains, but with more malicious intentions. It began when a near-impossible case fell into Rachel’s lap, the suspectless homicide of a homeless man. In the face of courthouse backbiting and a gauzy web of clues, Rachel is determined to deliver justice.
She’s got back-up: tenacious Detective Bailey Keller. As Rachel and Bailey stir things up, they’re shocked to uncover a connection with the vicious murder of an LAPD cop a year earlier.
Rachel suspects someone knows the truth, someone who’d kill to keep it secret. Harrowing, smart, and riotously entertaining, GUILT BY DEGREES is a thrilling ride through the world of Los Angeles courts with the unforgettable Rachel Knight. – Publishers Website
I am really liking Rachel ! In Marcia’s 2nd fiction book, Rachel is becoming more and more one of those literary characters that won’t be soon forgotten. With her steely determination to find out who did what, when, where and make them pay has me almost cheering ( in a non fangirl squealing mess). I have to save that for a Canadian Fictional Character, sorry Marcia !!
I’m liking the action, the information Marcia effortlessly passes on as Rachel follows this case to the bitter end…literally. Bailey her 2nd hand person, definitely gives the bad guys a run for their money. I wonder if there are really tough female detectives like this in real life. More than likely!
I have to say, Marcia has definitely hit the genre running and probably won’t give up the fight anytime soon. The Mass Market comes out in March, but you can still get a hardcover more than likely. If you liked her first book Guilt by Association, you will definitely like this one. I’m looking forward to her next installment.
I have had a few instances where I have chatted with Marcia on twitter and on Facebook, she is really quite personable so don’t be shy and say hi. Just be nice and respectful…
