Guilt by Association starts out with a bang and keeps you on your toes until the very last page. I love the characters in this book; they are so defined as to who they are and how they act. They have quick tempers, wit and intelligence and somehow solve the case that they aren’t supposed to be anywhere near without getting into too much trouble.
Rachael Knight, a prosecutor, realizes how little she knows about the people she works with because she doesn’t see most of them outside of work. When a co-worker Jake is found dead and seems to have committed a horrible crime, Rachel won’t believe it. When Rachel and her best friend Bailey, who is one of the best detectives on the LAPD force, team up there is no stopping them. They talk sassy and tend to bend the rules just a bit too far.
This is a wonderful book and you must read it so you can fall for Rachael Knight. Marcia Clark writes a great novel with a sassy, brilliant ease and a great sense of humor.
