Framing the Dialogue

Moral Defense

“I don’t buy much of anything my clients say until I see some corroborating evidence.  Especially clients who’d already lied to me once before.  And it didn’t matter.  It wasn’t my job to believe.  It was my job to make the jury believe.”

In author Marcia Clark’s second in the Samantha Brinkman series, Moral Defense, Brinkman finds herself being an advocate for a young woman after someone brutally murdered her entire family.  It doesn’t take long for her to end up defending a her.

Brinkman also becomes closer to her long, lost father and finds out that they share a common interest in ensuring that the guilty are punished.  This was the surprise for me at the end of the first novel.

This was another very good novel by Ms. Clark and I look forward to the next in the series.
