Samantha Brinkman is a struggling defense attorney representing less than stalwart clients juggling bill payments and nursing a very old car even though she’s had courtroom success. In Blood Defense, her long-time best friend and office partner is pushing her to go after the accused murderer of a semi-famous starlet…even before the perp is arrested and charged. It would be the type of case that would put her practice on the map and bring in some much needed income. The news leaks and the suspect is a surprise. Will Brinkman get the case? It would be a pretty short book if she didn’t wouldn’t it?
So Brinkman and her staff set off to prove his innocence, but before she can get really started he drops a major bombshell on her.
So there’s this bombshell, the police have no interest in helping her, the public really don’t like her, the press is all over the case, her Mom is a pain, and as she gets close to the truth bad things start to happen.
This is the first novel that I have read of Marcia Clark’s and I enjoyed it very much. There were enough twists and turns to keep it interesting and the ending blew me away. Really! I had to read it twice as I thought that I misread it. I’m looking forward to the second in the series due out this fall.
